Project Rungay on Project Runway: Did they Accessorize “Thoughtfully”?

Project Rungay‘s Tom and Lorenzo riff on the designers’ accessory choices every week on FlyPaper.
Did the designers use the Bluefly Accessory Wall “thoughtfully?” Let’s put them to the test.
The gold accents are a nice touch to this simple party dress, but it’s all a bit too matchy-match. We would have suggested some color in the jewelry.
She’s got the dress, she’s got the bag, she’s got the shoes; she’s out the door. It’s a perfectly realized outfit. The very definition of looking “put together.”
Ooh, some poor accessorizing there, Jesse. We love a knee-high boot, but a loose boot over loose pants make for a bottom-heavy look. The bag and bangles look a bit “heavy” as well. A lighter touch would have made this somewhat shapeless outfit look a little more feminine and stylish.
Too many of the designers are falling back on blacks and metallics as their go-tos, so it’s nice to see someone choosing color. We don’t love this dress, but we love the way she styled it.
The shoes are basically the dress in shoe form. She has a good eye for styling, but we’re of the school that thinks accessories should add to an outfit, not continue it.
See? Like this. The shoes remind you of the lace front on the dress, but they don’t mimic it exactly. They’re different enough that they stand on their own (pun intended) while at the same time adding something to the whole of the look.
