Breaking the rules!
For this look i decided to break some rules just for fun, and to also see if my attempt at wearing a mix of items that are generally not worn together would work.
I think my accessories did a great job of making my vest a strong focal point of the whole look.

Her look is made up of two simple garments which are livened up by the flamboyant mix of prints and the 'trendy' characteristics of both pieces. See more on this post on her blog http:/katalystkollection.blogspot.com

You've got mail!
So I bought the fabric thinking I'd have to make something simple but also dressy, and the garment would also have to allow me to use most of the 1.5meters because I needed to have all of this material used for the garment...I loved it so much.
This high waist African print skirt is the result of that days deliberation.
Later on, I was fortunate enough to find this neon neckpiece to add to my accessories drawer, I think its very tasteful and the colour adds enough of an edge for me to be sold on it.
I picked up this structured sling bag during the neon phase. I can be a "trend slave" sometimes, I think there's a method and smartness in mastering how to follow a good trend well.
I have to admit though, I'm really glad I still have enough feelings for this bag to be using it still, I'm still not too sure about it, its one of those items I feel like belong to someone else, it hasn't settled in with me yet.
Non the less, we are still together and going strong.
I finally decided to get myself a pair of barely there heels...I know!
I have to admit, it took my younger Virgo years to convince me to finally get a pair, for some reason I persistently thought they where to simple for me to pull off. She'd always said they are a must have for any female that might enjoy a moderate to extreme dress up session at times. She insists that they posses the special power of making any foot, I mean any foot, look feminine...Looks like she was spot on from the door!

Authenticated by elaborate detailing, the gratuitous use of soft fabrics, the dropped waistline, this is what defined the decade. Delicate, feminine and just plain fabulous, this look equates to the perfect description of a Woman. Cut on the bias (luxury personified) pleat detail, in soft hues, e.g, sorbets, nudes and metallic shades of gold and silver, are right on trend.
Satin, lace, chiffon, georgette, sequin, pearls, fringe...can you say "the grate Gadsby".
