Here is a fashion disaster that I am ashamed to say is more recent than I can admit. The individual pieces themselves aren't bad, but it just fell flat for me. I looked like I was wearing a beach cover up in public, but for some reason, with loafers?! (I do live near the water, but even *I*, in all my overdressed prissy glory, do not wear loafers to the beach, thankyouverymuch).
The thing is, I actually really love all those pieces, including the pretzel purse (aka Reginald). This is why it's important to not just buy the right clothing, but to understand why to put certain things together, and why not to. This falls under the "not to" category.
