This week I decided accessories would make the outfit. I had hoped to find a few pieces in turquoise that would work with the tribal theme. That didn't happen. Instead I found a cute skirt at Suzanne Grae for $50. Plus some accessories that were on sale. I got a necklace, earrings and ring. All for $25 from Lovisa. Perfect I had my look! A whole new style for less than $100.
I had a lot of trouble deciding which pieces worked best for this outfit. I wanted to wear a black shirt and my TS shoes that seemed to work with the theme. I felt edgy. However the camera preview showed a short frumpy woman. Eekk! Admittedly at that stage I hadn't done much with my hair, but something was off. I took a few photos wearing different items and then looked at those photos on the computer. It's a Visual Diary technique that works a treat.
Looking at the side by side photos I could make an easy comparison. Notice how the skin toned shoes make my legs look longer. The shoes also have a low vamp extending the length of the leg. Not sure what a shoe vamp is? The nude colour shoes are a low vamp. The black shoes are a high vamp. It's where the shoe front ends - low or high.

My main goal was to create a look that was very me. I think the new additions to my wardrobe suit me and will be worn often. I love wearing the ring. It's comfortable and I like the pattern.
