The Glamorous Grad Student just led me to this nifty polyvore challenge: "How do you add your personal stamp to your outfit? If I asked you to slip on a pair of jeans, a simple top, a pair of flat shoes, and any accessories you liked, what would you come up with?" And since I don't want to think about leaving for work in 5 minutes I am posting my response instead.
Basically, start with plain shirt and jeans. Add basic neutral-but-cute flats, big jewelry and some bright stuff (cardigan, bag). That's about as complex as I get.
Anybody want to play along? Or give me tips on how to make this outfit better (don't say a belt)?
Edit: for Wende, since she wasn't going to do it. Apparently my mental image of her is vaguely rock-star related for some reason.
