I'm just trying to dress a bit nicer, but I don't want to look like a trend whore or overdone...girl's hate that.

- edit - the boots are a chestnut and the gucci top's go more into a dusty rose, would that still work do you think?

Hello everyone, I've been reading thru the posts, and your outfits are gorgeous! I need some fashion help ASAP, please help.

I'm attending my boyfriend's niece's baby baptism tomorrow, and I'm stuck as to what to wear. I've never been to a baptism before, it's an Orthodox church one. I've tried this outfit on, and think it may look okay... please let me know your opinions on this, or if I should go more casual or formal.

Also, please ignore the messy hair, lol, just woke up, and the mirror spots. Thanks in advance for all your advice.


-white corset collar shirt with boning and satin accents, hook/eye closure all the way up
-tan cami underneath the white shirt
-ruffle tweed skirt, slightly flared style
-brown leather boots that have been distressed thru many seasons of rain/snow
-my new handbag that I just received yesterday after a long wait

hi...that looks fine...though i don't know about boots in church...
fyi-this is not really the right place to ask this quest...
maybe a mod could move this to the appropriate area?...

thanks...

those shoes, jeans, fitted black short sleeve jersey(kind of stretchy cottony material with the grooves running down the material?
-->>Similar to that, but with sort of like grooves on the material?I don't; know what to call it
How does that look

Welcome to tFS Hidden

I have to be honest I'm thinking Simon Cowell but I've never seen his shoes. The shirt is very tight...

I saw your question on deck shoes earlier too and to me, they're very reminiscent of the 80s and the Bass shoe rage. I think you should go for something more contemporary. Many of the men's f/w collections are up in Designers & Collections. They might provide some inspiration!

opinions please
What are your views on this outfit: a black tank with silver rhinestones, white pants (to the ankle, almost capri), silver belt, and black strappy backless sandal? Not too sure if i could get away with a black sandal with white pants...what do you think?

get cream-colored sandals instead, and no sequined tank top if you want a sliver belt.

Show some pictures (remember to credit them)

i think that outfit will be just right, but im not sure about the silver belt.. really need to see the individual pieces. however i definitely think white pant with black shoes is fine

As long as you (SMILE and shoulders back!!!) almost anything looks great.

It sounds like a nice outfit to me. So much depends on the overall shapes, textures, draping of a "look" so it's impossible to comment on an exact outfit without seeing it on the body.

Maybe try adding a touch of color through an accessory? A bracelet perhaps?

Slouchy dress.....
I love slouchy stuff, so I bought this dress....I purposely got it slightly bigger than needed so it would look slouchier..

What do you guys think?

i think the fabric is too stiff to be 'slouchy'...
maybe you should try washing it to soften it up?...

...

i might also try a heavier wide lthr belt to make it 'bouson' more...

^I agree with Softie.

THe sizing is right for the slouchiness but the material does look a little stiff - probably will soften up with continuous wear though!
