nice, safe choices, in general. a little matchy-matchy and slightly matronly? felt like each look could have been made slightly more youthful, but still accessible to a wide range of ages. for example, the second look could have used a pop of color -- possibly a teal blue scarf or necklace. the first look is a little too red-and-black. and the cardigan has a tie under the bust that i think would compete with the empire-waist on the dress. i think a simple heather grey cardigan (shrunken for something a little fun) would have been pretty. can't beat the prices, though!! www.dcstylefactory.wordpress
