Sometimes when I am surfing the net I find something that sparks my imagination, such as the blouse below. I find I must put together an outfit, even if I have no intention of buying it. It is kind of like internet window shopping. This is what I created a few nights ago:
The above is pure fantasy because I didn’t bother to look at any prices. But I think it could easily be recreated using far less expensive garments. For example, I adore that skirt, but I already have an orangey-red pencil skirt and it certainly wasn’t as expensive as the one pictured. As for the Lanvin shoes- aren’t they fabulous! If only I could wear shoes so high!
As a former costume designer, I often have a back story when I make my little fashion boards. I imagine the woman who would wear this ensemble is a CEO of an amazing company, works in her office all day, and then throws on her hat and heels, switches her purse, and runs to meet her fabulous husband at a delicious steak house. Why a steak house? I dont know. Maybe the wood panneling and dimmed lights. So glamorous.
