Reader Request: Styling Asymmetrics

How to style and wear asymmetric clothes and accessories

Reader Beth e-mailed me this question:

I’ve started branching out into asymmetric pieces. Nothing too dramatic but I often find myself unsure of what to do with them. For instance, I have a dress that has an asymmetric neckline and I love it, it’s totally my style and it’s comfy/fun to wear.

Reader Request: Balancing Foot Size

Keilexandra popped this question into the suggestion box:

I’d love to see a post on how to “balance” foot size, both small and large. Especially small! At 5’2.5″ and 120 lbs, I feel like my size 5 feet are disproportionately small. This is especially apparent when I wear heels or high-vamp shoes (e.g. oxfords, TOMS), and even more so now that I am finally spending money on good-quality shoes in my size rather than a size too large. Wearing shoes that fit is much more comfortable, but it also makes my feet look smaller… and unlike most women, I think my feet are already small enough! READ MORE
