Warning For Those Looking To GOOP Like Gwyneth

So, we told you about Gwyneth entering the blogging/website world with GOOP, which gives Gwyneth’s view on how to ‘Paltrow-fy’ your life and be Gwytheth-level fabulous. This week’s newsletter centers on the ubiquitous LBD (Little Black Dress) and how to accessorize this closet workhorse to take you through a very busy day/week. These looks from her newsletter are cute but we think they should come with a warning label or two:

Warning #1 – Hot pink hosiery with your LBD will not work on you unless you are very tall and very thin (and even then, we're not so sure). Add ankle boots to the mix and it will amplify any imperfection in your legs and make you look stumpy. Patterned tights will add necessary impact and keep the eye moving, like these cute Hue Argyle Sweater Tights ($18).

Warning #2 – You are taking style advice from someone who grew up as Hollywood royalty, has always been wealthy, and apparently has no concept that the rest of us do not consider Roger Vivier and Gucci as “running errands” labels. The Gucci Babouska boots shown she suggests will set you back about $995! Why not take the studded inspiration in a style that elongates the front of the leg, like these Steve Madden Elivate Booties for $169?

We DID love the cardigan and belt look she showed with the little black dress. For a recessionista-friendly take on this look, try pairing your LBD with a Forever 21 V Neck LS Cardigan ($19.80) with this slightly edgy Gap Leather Belt in Black ($39.50).  

Now you have enough money to try one of the restaurants she mentions in her beloved Zagat guide.  After all, great style will take you to the hottest restaurant in town, but if you can't afford to try the food, what's the point?
