Ladies and Gentlemen, I’d like to present you with a visual list of some of the reasons why I love

While somewhat pricy, the clothing is always adorable with a retro-fresh air, and the accesories are cheap and tres cute. Let me also use this post as an example of how to put together an outfit (a question that I’m frequently asked but hardly ever answer sufficiently). I usually start by picking out one item I want to wear on any given day- could be clothes, jewelry, scarves, anything- then build around it by adding complimentary colors. While monochrome dressing can be a lot of fun, I personally aim for two to three colors in any given outfit: either bring  out the colors in a patterned piece, or supplement a solid garment with lots of matchy-matchy extras. For balance, try to have some color on top (hairthings/earrings/necklaces/scarves), in the middle (belt/bracelets) and one on the bottom (shoes). I like alternating: say, yellow hairscarf, teal necklace, brown shift, yellow belt, teal bracelet, yellow shoes. Maybe that formula is a bit contrived; really, the most important thing to think about while putting together an outfit is using pieces that you like and letting your own unique style shine through.

Here’s some FredFlare examples, all built around the same pair of flats and wallet (minus the balancing of colors, since I’m only using these ten products):
