Sometimes dressing is hard.

Especially during the holidays, with so many priorities competing for attention. Figuring out what to wear can become just another chore.

Mix in dressy parties, and choices can get downright confusing.

Or maybe you've solved the dressing problem by finding the perfect little black dress that can be accessorized up or down, depending on the occasion.

Contributor Melissa Magsaysay recently wrote about Keaton Row, which matches consumers with wardrobe stylists who can offer advice.

Another option is a new online accessories store, Vicolo Mio, that can help you figure out the finishing touches to choose. Through the website's "Style Me" option, shoppers can pay $35 to get personalized advice on shoes, handbags and jewelry to complement any outfit.

Here's how it works. First you sign up on Vicolo Mio's Style Me page. Then email pictures of your outfit, and the website adviser will respond with suggestions for accessories.

It seems to be part of a nascent trend of websites that offer more guidance to shoppers, who otherwise would have to dig through an overwhelming number of choices.
