I keep an outfit journal. That may sound silly, but it's mostly practical - I don't buy very many new clothes, so I have to take advantage of the pieces that are already in my wardrobe. Whenever sartorial inspiration strikes, I just write down my outfit ideas and save them for those days when I find myself staring helplessly at my closet with the dreaded I have nothing to wear! feeling coming over me. Most of the time, this system works... but we live in a 19th century apartment without much light and with even fewer mirrors, so I have to rely heavily on how I've imagined an outfit will look because I often can't see it that clearly until I've already left home. Every once in a while, my imagination fails. I dreamt up this white-on-white look with black accents thinking that my sweater and skinnies were the exact same shade - the camera's display revealed otherwise when we were snapping these shots. C'est la vie, as they say! Tell me, what are your strategies for putting together outfits?
