As chic as the mannequin may look, style should enhance on your personality so unless you want to model yourself on a plastic doll, best to leave it in the window!
We all have that someone who's individual style we admire, and where there is nothing wrong with being inspired by it there is when mimicking! What suits them may not suit you, have confidence in your taste and take elements of an outfit to apply to your own measurements to ensure it's unique to you. I have no admiration to live in a world resembling The Island! Be yourself, keep it personal!

There's no denying the right heels have many advantages such as adding height to us shorties, elongating the body and improving poor posture. But there's nothing sexy about a girl trotting down the highstreet knee over foot in heels too high. Most of us learnt to walk at a young age, why quit now?
Skin colour tights.. specially when worn with open toe shoes, No! If you want to show skin then bare it.. if it's too cold wear trousers! Nobody wants to be subjected to someones' toes as they undergo a masked robbery on their shoes.
