Beth's Blend

Back here in July, this lovely lady's what-to-wear-to-event question first appeared. It seemed, at the time, as if she would be able to get the shoes and not the dress, you can see now the opposite happened. (Her feet sure look happy, don't they?)

I say she met her goal of matching her outfit to her shape, coloring and personality:

  • Working within your natural silhouette is usually the most slimming. The reason: most techniques for changing the silhouette involve adding to it; which makes sense, how hard it is to subtract from one's figure. This dress is an A.

  • From looking at this picture, I would never guess Beth is over 40. The harmony between her dark hair, eyes & glasses, and dress is very flattering. This would be considered a mono-chromatic look, because it's all based on deep reds, similar to the example back here.

  • Elusive as her natural personality blend (most people are a combination) has been, I'm going to take a stab at it. No contest she is a Contemporary Classic, but I'm going to suggest Timeless Classic as #2 (lipstick, pearls, perfect hair).

    And I wouldn't rule out Romantic Natural as #3, based on the Marilyn Monroe flavor of the dress. Marilyn, after all, was the Queen of Romantic.

Open, of course, for discussion.

Sounds right to me! Sorry the picture is a little blurry, not sure what happened there.
