Fashion Friday: Looking good on a shoestring budget

Today we will talk about how accessories can make your outfit. This little hooded jacket came from a dollar store. You can tell it is not very fashionable, and it is a little bit too big for me. So, I started digging around in my accessories to try to make the outfit look better. First I added this jaunty kerchief. I think there is a big improvement already!
Next I added the crown from my ballerina suit. I do not think this look works. Even though I love my pretty pink crown. The crown got thrown back into the accessory box.
Finally, I found a look that works! I put the hood up and added my beautiful pink diamond necklace. How do I look?
My last bit of advice is, if you cannot figure out a good look, you are always safe to go with a simple and elegant strand of pearls.

Angus said...

My mom says that pearls dress up everything-being a guy, I think you look pretty without all that glitz, but my mom says thats just the way girls are.

Daisy, I like Miss Delilah and think she's very pretty..how can I show her I like her without going too overboard? I don't want to rush her by moving too fast, but I also don't want her to think I'm not interested.Can you advise me?
Thank you!
Angus

Daisy, you are staggeringly beautiful and elegant as always. My human REALLY needs to take fashion tips from you. She keeps stomping around in those hideous Ugg boots. It is really rather disgusting. I wish she could teleport over and play dress up with you! x

Boy said...

You always wook pwetty Daisy, no matter what you wear!

Beth said...

Daisy you so need a champagne colored handbag to go with the outfit. Fill it with catnip and a few Pounce treats and the Tom Cats will flock to you.

Wow, Daisy, you are a great stylist! I've taken notes down for my momma. I think she should start shopping at the dollar store.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Randi said...

Pink is definately Daisy's color!

Love & Licks,

Camie's Kitties said...

We like your hoodie Daisy. Maybe you can snuggle with Skeezix in there since it is a little large. Mom agrees, pearls go with anything.

Team Tabby said...

We think both looks are great, Daisy. We enjoy your Fashion Fridays.

Diamond said...

Dear Daisy, I like the string of pearls look best, as it shows more of your pretty fur. You are a most incredibly tolerant cat. I would go wild if Lynettea put any of this stuff on me. Perhaps a little piece of glitter occasionally, or my halter.

Karen Jo said...

You made that dollar hoodie look stunning with the hood up and the scarf and diamonds. I have an award for you.

Tyler said...

Oh, I like the pearls the best. Those are some huge pearls. I bet the oyester that had those babies were happy when it was time to spit those pups out. I would think they couldn't even close there shells with pearls that fat in them....

Andrée said...

I thought the first photo with the scarf improved it a lot, but the pink necklace photo: wow! You're a genius with accessories.

But now this last photo . . . naked with only pearls. That's a thought.
