I admit that I am not the most fashionable person (as confirmed by my snickering teenage daughter), but I do love those that have a sense of style. I also don't follow trends or fashion magazines, but I am a Project Runway junkie (something my daughter and I can share). I just learned of a documentary that is out about Iris Apfel, that quirky and oh-so-colorful nonagenarian fashion icon that I simply must put on my Christmas wishlist. With the recent close of the New York Fashion week for fall, I started turning my mind to the changing seasons and the fashions that go with it as I swap out my own wardrobe (again, not nearly as stylish).
I did a little googlifying "fall 2015 fashion" (just putting in random words and seeing what comes up) and I spotted a set of aubergine hued dresses from designer Monique Lhuillier that really impressed me (there was also a rich teal that was lovely, and a drop dead gorgeous liquid copper dress, but I want to keep things in the same color family). The deep, saturated colors... the mix of patterns with lace... the layering effect... all of these make this Fall 2015 collection from Lhuillier really spectacular. She is known for her corseted looks, her dreamy romantic wedding ensembles, and stunning red carpet gowns, so this collection is a bit of a departure for her. I am not usually a lace or pattern person, and I could never pull off any of these looks, but I love it! (Okay...maybe I would rock that furry coat ;-)
What impressed me was that each of these pictures, while obviously part of the same collection, seems to exude a completely different woman. From young and hip to stylishly classic. So I thought that a fun challenge would be to pick the one woman (or more!) from these pictures and design earrings to go with her outfit. The only thing that is lacking in this collection is the jewelry, so why not provide it for her!
Your challenge this month....select one of these looks and create a pair of earrings to accessorize it.
See you on October 16th for the reveal!
