Texture, Print, Sparkle

There are things we can add to every outfit to take it to the next level.  I wish I could say thiese are my tips, but I learned them years ago watching What Not To Wear, a show I still miss.  Don't get me wrong, I know Clinton's Happy on the The Chew and Stacey's doing fine solo on Love, Lust or Run, but I miss them as a dynamic duo.  Regardless of where life has taken my fashion mentors, I learned quite a lot from them and this outfit is my tribute to them.  Rather than just a skirt, I chose a bold print.  Then, instead of a neutral black top, I chose one with sequins to give it that sparkle and finally, I chose this ruffled cardigan rather than a plain one and I am pretty happy with the results.  This could easily have been a bland combo, but adding pieces that each contained one of the three key elements (texture, print, and sparkle) brought so much pizazz to the whole look.  Thanks Stacey and Clinton.  I heart you.
