Outfit - Delicate edge

Brown is a colour I have avoided wearing for many years.  There are several reasons for this:  it makes me look pale (paler), I don't really like how it mixes with my golden blonde haircolour and I find it near impossible to match in an outfit.  I really don't like brown with black (black and tan work okay), and so I am wondering what colours you mix it with?  What works, what doesn't?

The Outfit:
For the outfit I picked up a bag I rarely wear; it has been laying around for years.  I actually have never worn this dress before either.  I picked it up at the Guess outlet for around 10$ and it's been sitting in my closet ever since.  I bought these shoes a few weeks ago and I am in love with them.  I took this opportunity to showcase the dress and the shoes; to mix a delicate feminine piece with some edgier ones. I fell in love with these boots right away.  They remind me of a pair I saw on the spring runway -- can anyone remember the designer??  ;)  I had to poke an extra hole for the strap in order for them to fit right but they are comfortable, sturdy, and a perfect, practical heel.  I also think they would look great with denim!!!!!







Dress:  Guess 10$
Shoes:  Winners 40$
Purse:  Claire's / DIY
Bracelets:  Mango 5$
Necklace:  Real pearls

  3. I love the pics, and how you made that simple summer dress fantastic with those shoes and purse! Those shoes will look great with denim skirt or jeans or a beautiful floral skirt.

  4. I have the same iffy emotions with brown. Although I do think it works well with my skin tone, I just never seem to have the "right" shoe or pants, or this or that, to go with any certain piece of brown clothing. I tend to stick with white when pairing with brown. But those shoes are amazing!
