I thought this outfit kind of made me look like a sugar cookie with a little color sprinkled on it. I'm not sure how flattering it was on me, but I wore it anyway.
I wore some gorgeous bakelite earrings. And why is it that some clip on earrings are perfectly comfortable to wear, while others feel like they are cutting a hole through your ear lobe? These thankfully fall into the former and not the latter category.
This outfit needed color desperately, so I added a brown suede belt with lots of colorfully embroidered flowers on it.
I added colorful bakelite bangles to try and break up the monotony.
I also wore a little vintage brooch of two little Russian nesting dolls, but didn't get a picture (Augh!!), and brown tights and shoes (No picture of them either, double augh!!).
I didn't think this outfit looked so blah until I saw it in the photos. So, I'm not sure it worked or not, but I like have a plain simple dress to change with color and accessories. I may avoid this particular outfit again, but the dress will definitely be worn again.

Do you have outfits or colors that can look blah on you? How do you dress them up so they work for you?
