Is it considered matchy matchy

if the chain on your wrist matches the chain on your blouse?




That’s a tough one.


The opposite of tough? Lace. Which covers my high-waisted knee-length skirt.


But back to the pressing question at hand — is it matchy-matchy if you match your shoes to your handbag?


I’d say it’s a toss up. (I’m sorry. I’m the worst.)

    you already know I loooove that lace skirt.

    matching the purse to the shoes, well, that’s a tad matchy-matchy but this one time, I’ll forgive you. =)

    Are you throwing away your jacket ? Hope that’s not a kind of strip tease in the middle of the street.

    You matched it well. I’m guilty of being matchy matchy once in awhile too.

    Liv — matching bag and shoes is very old school ladylike, isn’t it?

    La Flore — ah ha! Yes I am and no it’s not.

    Sofia — that might be the best compliment a French gal has every paid me. Except for the time a gal stopped me on the street in Paris and asked me for directions — that was the best compliment a French gal ever paid me.

    Frank&Remy — thank youuuu!

    Leah — that makes me feel better. I suppose when we’re talking black hand bag and black shoes, it’s hard not to be.

    i would say it’s a bit corporate, but not matchy-matchy. sometimes you have to match your shoes and bag.
    funny since i’m wearing a similar outfit today, sans lace.

    Love this look; I don’t think any aspect of it is too matchy-matchy!


  • Reply VancityAllie September 10, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    I love those shoes!

    It might be matching but it’s still awesome! Lace, a silk shirt and those bracelets? Very cool.

    I solely agree with Couture Carrie !
    p.s. I luv your soles!
