I’ve been “out of the office” so to speak, distracted by various developments (including a new internship!), but it’s good to be back. The kitchen cupboard is where I keep items I’ve lost interest in or don’t wear very often. I found this Club Monaco skirt out of that pile and set up a challenge to create a business versus casual look. The skirt is a sleek, but overtly professional piece only needing a crisp white shirt and structured bag to give corporate appeal. With the casual outfit, I perpetrated a realistic situation using the items actually worn to “the office”. The result was a change of pumps to sandals and an unbuttoned shirt worn in cardigan fashion. I see myself more in the laid back look. What about you?

After much anticipation, my Thakoon parachute belt went on sale at eLuxury. I snatched it up only to discover that it was too big. So I made some lemonade (outfits) with my lemons (belt). This ensemble turned out “equestrian chic,” an appropriate theme as the pants are actual riding breeches. They’re stubborn to put on (me kicking and jumping), but I think their versatility makes it worth it. If I didn’t already have them in black, I’d be getting out my sharpie . . .

Here’s the more risqué counterpart to Marionette. In the excitement of receiving my Wolford Moulin Rouge tights, I put this outfit together. I’m not sure where I would wear the ensemble, but I get the feeling dancing may be involved. Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da.
