Style Q & A: May 2020

Happy day, reader dear!

Earlier this month, I had a fun evening on FaceBook Live answering Style Q’s from readers and followers. I know that not everyone who reads the blog also follows me on FaceBook, so I wanted to share those Q’s and A’s with you here! I’ll be the first to admit that it went a little long… (About half an hour.) If you don’t want to take the time to watch the video, but would prefer the Cliff’s Notes version, let me know, and I’ll post the next one in both formats. Please remember to give the video a thumbs up if you learn anything helpful, and mash the button (Southern speak for press.) to subscribe to my channel for new videos as they come out. I do try to keep them shorter! I’ll blame the questioners this time…

If you’re wondering what we’re chatting about and whether it’s worth your time (Time is precious!), we cover everything from matching bags and shoes for eveningwear, to flattering cuts and styles for busty petites, keeping your lipstick from bleeding, online shopping tips, why your pants bag at the knees, styling prints, and columns of color: what and why. (Although if you’re a long time reader, you know all about a column of color already!) Grab your favorite drink and get comfortable. (And thank you for remembering that this was a FB Live; there’s no editing, or filters!)

If you want to hone in on your specific interests, here are the Q’s with the relevant time hacks to help you out. Along with links to associated posts.

Q1: (1:50-6:20) I have a 2 part question. I have a dressy black jumpsuit that I love and I love the look of nude shoes. Would wearing dressy nude shoes with it make it too casual for a cocktail party? If it’s okay to wear the nude shoes do I then need to buy a nude purse/clutch or would a black purse/clutch be okay?
