For Mella (WT)

I got to outfit Mella in our round-robin blogger paper doll project. So here we go:

1. I think black and tan look great together.
2. She likes knit tops and more structured bottoms.
3. Purple!
4. Classic shapes + interest through accessories.
5. I like to think that the purples in the top and bag don't fight, but that might be my monitor.


1. I am on a purple kick today.
2. I went with subdued colors (other than the purple) with a little more interest brought in with pattern and texture (and buttons!).
3. Again with the structured bottoms and interesting accessories. Hopefully the skirt isn't too pencil-y.
4. Scarf!

So those are my outfits for Mella's Sunday brunch. She likes to be slightly more dressed up than the curve so hopefully these will fit her tastes. And I know she's even more picky than I am when it comes to shoes so I did what I could. A fashion magazine person would have put belts over both cardigans but I just can't do it - too frivolous for me, sorry. But if you like to picture them with one more accessory, go with the skinny belt, you fancy people.

Purple is good! You got the shoes perfect, which half the time even I can't do. And if I could find khaki pants that didn't make me look like a stale breadstick, I would definitely wear them with black.

That's the catch, I guess, finding this stuff in the real world. And also what makes Polyvore so awesome, I am totally addicted to it. Glad you liked the purple!
