In The Words Of Charles Mignus

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” ~ Charles Mignus I wanted to put together something effortless for our virgin trip to the Renaissance Festival (blogged here).  And the challenge was to create a deceptively simple, uncluttered look that would still be able to convey a hint of the dramatic, to represent me ever so perfectly.  I think this worked 🙂 In a soothing hue of Camel, the classic cardigan is made spot-on-trendy with that oversized slouchy fit and given a twist of glam with the addition of an EXQUISITE and tremendously soft, plushy Faux Fur Collar.  Your regular humdrum tank is kicked up a notch or twenty with an ink blot motif made of a Rorschach print by none other than Project Runway winner Mondo Guerra. I thought the red picked out the highlights in my hair wonderfully. Worn with comfy black leggings (because vanity does not always trump sanity) and the most darling Vintage Inspired Riding Boots.  I know, Sheela in flats?  Will wonders never cease. …

Fee, Fi, Faux Fur

I love fairy tales ~ does it show? I’m still getting to know my Coral Painter Lite. (trying to) Strike A Pose Brown Faux Fur Shrug worn with a stunning Hi-Low Jersey Black Top which features brass skulls.  I paired these two exquisite garments with sleek Black Leggings and killer Nikita Boots. Brass Choker/Necklace with Fool’s Gold and Chains a-plenty. See those skulls??  LOVE LOVE LURVE. Vintage Ferragamo Bag. A gift from my man, this is one of my all time favourite bags – a vintage Ferragamo featuring gorgeous wild animals, leather and some hardware.  Just phenomenal. From the back. See how beautifully that Jersey top drapes?  And yes, I have red hair 😀 Seated. Trying to act all cool and nonchalant as only a 40 year old can. Femme Fatale Boots. Another (perfectly chosen) gift from the man ~ what can I say, he’s from Italy 🙂 And that’s all there is for now, there isn’t anymore. Love, SG
