Update #56: Elsa

Today's ensemble is inspired by none other than Elsa Schiaparelli. She was known for her use of color and "shocking" designs. I really tried to find a hat that would compliment the outfit, but could not. I knew I shoulda' bought that black suede hat shaped like a pump, when I had the chance! It would have been perfect! Anyhow, I'm trying to pull off a John Galliano inspiration next, but am having much trouble. He is so all over the place (in a good way) that I can't sum him up in one outfit. I suppose I'll have to dress like a pirate. That would work, but that's too obvious. Okay, I'm rambling now. Signing off! -Muah

  1. Divine suit, darling!
    How do you like VS hosiery? Is the quality good?


  2. just learned a ton about else schiapparelli in my 20th century design class. She was so talented and i loved her surrealist designs :D i can definitely see the inspiration.

  3. This VS hosiery held up very well. I was truly impressed. I can't say that about their fishnets, though I buy them by the truckloads anyhow! But this was my first pair of nylons and I must say I was impressed. I would not have them had they not been on sale though. :(
