Things I Never Consider::a series

 I'll share a secret with you. My friends might be surprised, but I don't put a lot of thought into what I am going to wear. I try to jazz up the basics, but creativity is not a strong characteristic of mine. With that in mind, here are a few more things I forget looks nice or never considered.

Wearing blue--- I just don't own much blue. Part of the problem is I never see cute blue shoes which often steers me away from blue. (pic from Fashion Bug mailer)

Eternity scarf: I have a few.  I even made one, but often forget to incorporate them in my wardrobe. (pic from Lane Bryant mailer from a year ago.)

Grey, black and burgundy.  I forget how good these colors look together until I see them together again.  (pic from Lane Bryant mailer from a year ago.)

Skirts with hems that are not straight.  I have a few of these, but often don't wear them because I don't quite know how to pair shirts/jackets/sweaters with them.  Any suggestions?  (Pic from

The following sets are created by diamondlife in Polyvore

Cremes and neutrals.  Honestly, this never crosses my mind when I am getting dressed.  LOVE this set.

I have a pair of snake skin shoes that I have only worn once.  When I see these two sets I remember I'm wasting great opportunities.

Forgotten Treasure

You ever forget about a place, and got so excited when something sparks a memory? This happened to me yesterday. I took a moment to blow off some BMV frustration and stopped by the Cato Fashion store next door to it. It was a good decision. There were some cool items there. Granted Cato may not carry top of the line items, but it supports one of my rules to never spend a lot of money on trendy items. Only on classic pieces.

Here's some items from the website I saw there.

Love this purse

The dress AND the shoes were in the local Cato.

Things I never consider series

I want to start a new series. I much prefer classic to trendy, but there
are some things I can do that keeps the classic trendy. I will share those
ideas with this series.

Things I never consider:

Using colors with nothing tying them together. I would normally have an
urge to have something that ties the two together. I like this though.

Love this. Putting it in the lookbook.
