I want my blog to be about fashion (real fashion, not just Jenny fashion) but I think its boring and isolating to post photo after photo of beautiful gaunt models on the catwalk or in a fashion spread. This is fashion made me funky, not fashion made them funky haha.
So, lets begin with my spin on Kate Sylvestors collection from this past spring.
The photo above is my inspiration (found on Fashion Review), but to get a whole feel for this breezy sweet collection, I highly recommend watching the fashion show
The bow on my neck was made out on a thin cotton twin bed-sheet. I used a generous amount of fabric - about the length of my body to my neck, and almost as wide as me. My makeup is pinker and softer than normal. I used Rimmel "In Vogue" lipstick on my lips and cheeks. Damn I forgot to wear mascara. Next time.
I kept the tag on because I plan to return these pants. They were 67 dollars from Zara and I feel like I will stumble upon a similar color of trousers at a thrift store - or at least I will try! The pants came with the belt, which I folded the way Kate does (were on a first name basis now). Then I attached a gold chain I had lying around with elastic bands. And socks and sandals to complete the look!
