When I put this look together, I thought my bright turquoise handbag in the same exact color as my coat (kiss of death) was “too matchy-matchy.” And on top of that, the tan trim of the bag matchy-matched the soles of my shoes (eek!) and my hair! But I realized that matchy-matchy can be okey-dokey when it is a tone-on-tone look. We wear black on black, so why not wear crazy-bright blue with crazy-bright blue? What would have been too matchy-matchy would have actually been if I carried a black bag with tan trim to match the shoes, right?
