Fashion Dilemma

Dear Fashion Fix,

What kind of jewelry should I wear when my top has decoration on it?
Linda D., Balto., MD
Dear Linda,
If your blouse or sweater is adorned with beads, stones, pearls or studs, this embellishment serves as your necklace.  No other necklace is needed as it will detract from the focal point of your top.  Select a pair of earrings that complements the trim such as pearl earrings if the decoration is pearls.  To be tastefully dressed, remember that less is more.

Work out etiquette!
Please, no cologne at the gym.  So as not to offend fellow gym members, refrain from wearing perfume and cologne while working out.  Scents intensify as the body heats up and aromas can be overpowering to some people.  Do apply anti-perspirant and deodorant.
What's in YOUR closet?
Chunky shoes are...clunky! 

Shoes that are heavy looking can weigh you down, and make you appear short and dumpy.  This is especially important for petites as chunky shoes pull the eye down so the focus would be on the feet instead of the drawing the eye upward to give the illusion of height.  Trimline styles such as these from Nine West just look smarter.
