In general, when putting together an outfit for an occasion, do you:
A. Search for the shoes & accessories, then find the outfit.
B. Search for the outfit, then find the shoes and accessories?
I found the dress. That's done. It's pretty plain, though, so I need some fantastic accessories to jazz it up.
I also found the jewelry. I just need the shoes and am having no luck. Plus, I only have 8 days to find them. I have exhausted the local stores and have frantically searched the Internet, only to find one pair that is completely out of my price range.
I found a really cute pair of shoes in town that would go with the dress. But, I would have to completely change the jewelry (which I love). This is my back-up plan.
So, should I just give up on finding the perfect colored shoes to go with my jewelry and settle on the shoes I have already found so that I can remain sane? Or, should I keep looking and stressing for the perfect shoes until the very last minute and then, if I don't find them, run around and try to find jewelry to go with the back up shoes?
Maybe I'll just wear a potato sack to graduation.
