Do Sweat the Small Stuff

We spend so much time searching for the perfect dress that by the time we get to the accessories, we’ve often run out of steam. But a great ensemble is just that. An ensemble. It is not a single piece, but a number of pieces grouped in a way that is both complimentary and stylish. So, when I find an accessory (or ten) that I think is both unique (ie. no one else has it) and fitting for my wardrobe, I snatch it up. Though I love this dress (purchased on a whim at a sample sale), it is the bag and shoes that are the real powerhouses of this outfit. I honest to goodness found this floral handbag 15 years ago at a long-since closed boutique in San Diego.  It hardly carries a thing, but it has carried me through countless weddings and parties alike. Even after all these years, women still compliment it. (Men seem to think it looks like a loofah. Go figure.) And these shoes…what can I say? To slip your feet into a pair of Jerome C. Rousseau’s creations (also seen here and here) is to wear true artistry. It doesn’t hurt that the nude platforms make your stems look a mile long. Lesson of the day? Do sweat the small stuff. It can turn a nice dress into a fabulous ensemble. And who wants to be nice when you can be fabulous?
