What can I possibly say about this look. Usually, when I’m choosing an outfit or when I’m working with clients, I would always start building from the shoes and onward. It’s a a bit complex, but I that’s that’s how I’d describe my love for fashion. My mother, being a diehard shoe fanatic, got me hooked… all by marking through her favorite catalogs that were mailed our house. Mainly, she would circle, doodle and write her name next to the items she wanted… which were always shoes. Crazy enough, I actually do this myself when I purchase magazine and catalogs. If you’ve noticed my graphics and flatlays (like the picture above), you’ll notice the doodles and writings that explain my thoughts and ideas of how to wear each item or if I love a particular piece. But not to get too far off track, this time around, my muse was this beautiful light blue and white striped one shoulder blouse. Let me say, Johanna Ortiz completely delivered when she designed the entire collection. Take a look at this blouse she describes as “classic and festive elegant”. Her collection reminds me of Spanish charm, with the rich coloring of reds and floral patterns with ruffled detailing. This skirt definitely needs to be displayed in my closet in a gold shadow box… uhh, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Because I’m the type of person that doesn’t really follow the rules when it comes to fashion and styling, I recommend waring blue jeans or a pencil skirt with the option of tucking either side of the hem to display the suede belt (which matches the other accessories). I worked with suede and leather again because of the cool temperature of the blouse and jeans. The tan/taupe hues will then warm things up, a little.
