Shoot your look before you decide

When it comes to any outfit that I put together I always make sure that it’s working for me, but when it comes to getting ‘dressed up’ I snap a photo first.  If you take a photo it will show if the clothing is accentuating or exaggerating your flaws.  A photo can reveal if the length is flattering, or if the color is too much for your skin.  Make sure to try on various accessories to see how they work or don’t with your outfit.  Remember accessories can make or break an outfit as its the icing on the cake.

I liked how this dress fell on by body.  I added a long pearl necklace doubled up or could have gone with a simple pendant necklace.

If the skirt was a bit shorter this would have looked a bit more flattering, but too business looking for the event I was attending.

I tried to skip the jacket and go for a vest to show a little skin.

I put on a lace Ralph Lauren blouse that was pretty with the lace skirt.  The shoes and necklace added a little more glam to the entire look.

The Burberry lace skirt came with this lace camisole but the top didn’t add any shape to my body.  I decided to go with the first white outfit.

This process takes a lot of time, but you can see how creative you can get with just a few pieces.  I like looking at how the clothes look on the camera as it gives me an idea of what other people see.  Planning what your going to wear is key to looking your best.  Don’t just stop at ‘buying the outfit’ but go all the way with experimenting with your shoes, handbags and jewelry.

Sneaker Ball

Attending fundraisers is always a pleasure.  I really enjoy supporting local causes and especially when they benefit children.  There is nothing more heartwarming than knowing you can do something to make a difference in a child’s life.

The Sneaker Ball was a benefit to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder and their “Ballers to Scholars” Program.  This ball took place at the beautiful Empire Restaurant & Lounge in Boston.

This time of the year we have plenty of snow and temperatures ranging in the 40’s and lower in the evening.  So deciding what to wear wasn’t hard, but keeping warm was!!  You know me, I’ll practically wear anything for fashion, so I wore my shorts!

When wearing sneakers I don’t normally think of dresses, but plenty of ladies rocked this look.  I like to be sporty when I can, so shorts and a tank worked perfectly with my wedge sneakers!
