Anyway, on a brighter note (you gotta laugh), the term 'matchy matchy' totally cracks me up. I'd never heard of it before reading Already Pretty and now that I have, of course, I want to do it every day. Getting dressed this morning was just my chance.
Silver in brooch = grey in trousers;
Red stones in brooch = red in shoes;
Black between the spaces in brooch (tenuous, I know, tenuous) = black blazer
Black gets a hard time in the blogosphere at the moment. I have a sneaking suspicion it's preparing an elegant and beautiful comeback when the time's right. Don't you?
Any ideas for an outfit inspired by my brooch?
