This got me wondering - how would I dress if I had no issues shopping for clothes? Would I be tempted to buy everything (without worrying about alterations costs, overbearing boot shafts, or looking like I'm playing dress-up in Mom's clothes?). I don't know, but one thing's for sure - I would miss the thrill of finding that rare, well-fitting garment. Readers who need special sizing - would you dress differently if fit and proportions were not an issue? Would you shop more?
Pondering aside, for this look, I:
- used both items I covet as well as things I already own and love (suede ankle booties and deep plum polish!).
- knew nothing about "Milan" fashion so I took the easy way out with Italian designers.
- was hit by a strong desire to own a non-Target, monochromatic, classic Missoni tunic or mini dress. I love the cut on this one, and it's the perfect knit piece to don with tougher leather and ankle boots.

I didn't realize that this week's challenge would be on a board, and had already picked up a blouse for the post. I'll show more of it later, along with a review of two textured Fall pieces in petite sizing. Stay tuned!
