Style Journey- Ready for Accessories?
If you think you've seen this jacket before you have. I'm trying to get a little more inspired with my self portraits for these style posts.
I was pretty happy with this ensemble, I like the retro-y feel and the unusual color combo. looking at the pic though I feel that some accessories could have really taken it up a notch.
I've been thinking a lot about accessories, jewelery in particular. I actually did wear jewelery in middle school but when I went to arts highschool, we always had to take off everything for class. (Lots of rolling around on the floor) So I just stopped wearing it. Now that I'd like to start again I'm not sure how to go about it. Necklaces I can sort of get but rings and bracelets totally elude me. I also have no idea how to shop for jewelery. There's tons of places where you can buy cheap knock off trendy pieces or nicer pieces on sale. But when I see it in the store i just have no concept of how to translate it to my wardrobe, so I end up not buying anything. Any ideas of how to get started?
