And in honor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week:
I know I’m the last to jump on the Polyvore train, but my return to fashion begs for a styling outlet.
It’s a learning process, but I’d like to share a couple sets that I am particularly proud of:
This set I did as a tribute to Jason Wu as part of Polyvore’s Lunar New Year Contest.
If you don’t know his work (apart from what you see above), you should, it’s beautiful.
Check it out HERE. (Be warned: there’s music)
The second was just for fun, a set based on that beautiful feathered shoe:
In fact, I am devoting a page to my styling adventures, so I’m not clogging up your feeds with this over and over, but you still have easy access.
You’ll find it here (and up on my Header).
What’s your take?
Do you play with Polyvore?
The colors! The shapes.
I’m going crazy for some geometrics and bold color palettes.
Is it cabin fever? Probably.
Does that make these pieces any less AWESOME?
I submit that it does not. (pssst. Brian Regan you make me laugh. All the time. Thanks.)
Thanks again Etsy. The journey is always an inspiring one.
I hope you enjoyed the eye candy.
All images are linked to their respective shops.
( – pssssssssst. You should snatch these things up, because I can’t.)
Dude and Chick – (bonus: it’s local! yay twin cities metro area!)
I’d love to be able to try my hand at this someday.
I’m drooling and dreaming over here with all the possibilities.
Got any more letterpress for me?
I’m thinking of new fun things to make.
I’m at a loss though; I don’t have an idea in my head at the moment.
Looking back on recent work, I made these icy blue earrings for my sister for christmas:
Something that would complement this dress, perhaps? (image is calvin klein spring collection 2004 – isn’t it beautiful? understated but no less elegant – I love it)
Hmmm… maybe I’ll troll the stash to get an idea. Unless you’ve got one for me?
It’s quite early and I love it. Here are some beautiful bits of inspiration for your day:
Flirty 1950s (Vogue 1954, I believe) –
A beautiful brown for sure, but what is up with the giant paperclip?
Well, that’s one way to juggle (ms. blue checks is not amused)
Oh greige; what is your flavouring?
Ruche‘s Spring Lookbook (part II):
Such dreamy soft colors; I’m feeling a seaside vibe, but without the overt nautical sailor-girl look, which is nice.
I love large pretty rings
That bag ❤ – pretty much my fave color too
Very pulled together; I like the shape of that belt, and the pairing with that bag…
The Absolutely stunning Armani Prive Couture Spring 2010 Collection:
And my previously unsorted treasure trove of beads:
Certainly less glorious here, but look at what is hidden within:
So many different colors and shapes!
And that ain’t the half of it — it took two summers to de-string and organize all 90 lbs. (- whew-)
I am going to have lots of fun creating from all of this splendor.
Hope you enjoyed my bit of musing, come back soon!
much love, kait
I promise it is not insurance fraud.
