A few weeks ago, I did a post on my personal Dealmakers & Dealbreakers tropes in YA fiction.
Today, I’d like to present some of my current fashion Dealmakers.
1. Headbands. Especially ones that don’t press into my skull and give me a headache. I’ve got some crazy curls, so I have to do a substantial headband. And I favor bright colors: red, yellow, pink. I credit Blair Waldorf as my fashion inspiration here.
2. Tights. I bought a pair of grey sweater-tights the other day at Target and I’m in love. They’re so comfortable and warm! But I also love patterned argyle tights and, surprisingly, even the pair of bright pinky-purple ones I bought as an experiment the other night. Perfect to jazz up a black dress. I’ve got a ModCloth gift certificate and I’m coveting these: Beguile & Argyle.
3. Booties. I tried on a ton of knee-high boots at DSW, but the fact is this: I have short, sturdy little legs. The boot/skirt combo doesn’t work well on me. But booties! I love ’em. These are my new favorites. I’ve been wearing them for three days now, and they’re actually incredibly comfortable.
And my Believe necklace, too!
5. This dress.
It’s basically everything I love all in one. Pink. A well-defined waist. A-line skirt. Strapless.
What are some of your fashion dealmakers?
Stay tuned for next week’s dealbreakers!
