I think I saw the sandals you're refering to on the topshop site. I don't think they are tacky at all. Your husband is so picky! I sure hope you give him just as hard of a time with his wardrobe as he does with yours. Tell him that if he buys you new shoes you won't wear them.

Don't wait to wear your favorite pieces for an event; wear them today.
Don't be too matchy-matchy (matching your shoes with your bags? contrived).
Only wear strong, defined colors (otherwise I look washed out).
Don't over-plan: the outfit should not be over-accessorized and the makeup should not look like you spent hours applying it.
Deconstruct trends and subtly incorporate those that would look good on you.

And finally, confidence and good postures are the most important. Also, know your physical flaws (hey, nobody's perfect) and learn from others.

I don't have rules. Basically, I follow my own instincts, and it looks fine.

Mine and Sephora_Socialite's...we collaborated on this.

First is don't be afraid of colors..you be surprised how vibrant you look.

Wear things you love not like. You gotta feel good in your clothes

If you have a routine, mix it up once in a while. Clothes are meant to be fun.

If you follow trends make sure that you don't lose individuality.

Keep things balanced. Don't overwhelm yourself by clashing too many textures/elements and don't over do accessories. Moderation is key.

Rules are meant to be broken.Never be too stuck up about things...If u fancy it just go for it. Follow the beat of your own drums, I guess.

Avoid anything ever seen on a Spice Girl or a footballer's wife/girlfriend at all costs.

Amen to the no horizontal stripes rule. For me, anyway. I think this only works on the very thin.

I generally try to wear what makes me comfortable. I'd rather wear something that I know I'll be confident in, than something that looks better on the hanger than I think it looks on me...does that make sense?

People can be wearing really cute clothes, but if they're not comfortable with their outfit, it looks more like the clothes are wearing THEM than the other way around...kind of awkward.

If I'm not comfortable in it, I'm not wearing it.
