How to Create a Head to Toe Outfit | Designing From My Closet

When shopping, we typically select items one at a time.  Whether online or in store, each individual piece is evaluated by our own personal taste, fit, and budget.  After the purchase, that item goes into our closet with the hopes it will become an active part of our wardrobe and be integrated into what we already have.  It takes vision to look at a computer screen with a garment worn by a model or mannequin and imagine what it will look like on us and what it will look like paired with other items we own.  It takes an equal amount of vision to stand in the middle of a store full of clothes and picture this one item at home, going with the rest of our closet.
