9 of 30: Broken button

What do you do when you put on a shirt and the bottom button breaks off?

You hide it. A use for my high-waisted skirt — plus I get to wear my new skirt ("new" = bought a couple of weeks ago). I think the overall effect looks similar to a dress. It's a bit short for my comfort — but I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone lately! Another way this worries my comfort zone is the extreme brightness of the orange shirt. I am not a bright colours person — they don't suit me at all, I'm far too pale. But as I say, trying to branch out... and wearing the high-waisted skirt (and a black blazer) hid nearly all that orange!

Great idea to hide your lost button! Despite being outside your comfort zone your outfit looks fabulous.

I agree, I think the skirt is hot! And I do like the orange shirt too, can't see that it makes you washed out in the photos. Maybe you just need more lipstick ;)

You ARE a bright colors person! You look great in this, but if you're worried about looking too pale, you should try cold hues like cerulean blue and kelly green.

Ooh, that's a great idea! I don't have anything in bright blue or green and I do love those colours, so will have to go shopping once this shopping ban is over - thanks for the tip! :)
