My Knit Creation
The other issue is the shoe choice. I had intended to go for white tights today, until I remembered I wore them yesterday. I went with navy, to emphasize the navy of the plaid, but then found the brown shoes (which I admittedly wore anyway) didn't really work as well as if I'd done white or nude tights. I loved the random pop of colour that I got with my commuter shoe (as I wore once before), but they seemed to casual. Here is how I've worn it other times in other seasons, to a variety of successes and failures)Any advice?
Also, I'm very impressed with myself. I had started making this capelet (apparently an Anthropologie inspired piece) after Christmas, but ended up giving it to my sister for her birthday. I started again, albeit with cheaper materials, and had this very dress in mind when I made it. I like that it's a bit chunkier to work with the plaid, and that, since it's reversibly, and thus closes with a broach, I can customize the colour and style every time I wear it. I'm thinking of making a finer knit one for summer. Any advice on colour?
