There are so many fashion myths that I feel the need to debunk. Three actually. The first is hard to tell in this photo but one "rule" is not not mix blue with black. My pants are navy, top is black.
Another myth is to always match your shoes to your handbag. That's all well and good and defiantly has a look of its own, I say mix and match.
Lastly, the don't mix gold and silver rule. I'm personally sick of this one. My bracelets are Alex and Ani and are meant to be mixed but even still, I don't think you need to be a "silver person" or a "gold person". Mix 'em and have fun!
