Ralph Lauren Blue Label shirt, Chloe skirt, Stuart Weitzman shoes
Lovely eyelet detail in the skirt
This week definitely had me feeling like I had fallen down the rabbit hole. Everything and everyone seemed upside down and turned around. Out of all that came (unconsciously) a very Alice outfit, with it's blue-and-white composition and play on proportions. If I've said anything about having fun with outfits at work, it's proportion, proportion, proportion. Nothing else will take a look from downtrodden worker bee to queen of the work hive faster. This skirt in particular is one of my favorites that I regret not wearing more. The rather stiff cotton that the skirt is made of is really the only thing that gives it its malleable shape--no other tricks! Love that such a simple choice of fabrication made such a difference. And speaking of Alice, is anyone else as obsessed with that Annie Leibovitz-Vogue editorial with Natalia Vodianova as Alice? Ever since it came out in 2003, it has been one of my favorites (if not the favorite). The entire spread is here (if you haven't seen it, it's totally worth the clicks to see Galliano as the Queen of Hearts, Gaultier as the Cheshire Cat, and Marc Jacobs as the Caterpillar), but these two are my favorite of the bunch:
I can't decide if it's the frothy frills, the pithy and well-chosen quotes, or Natalia's perfectly petulant gaze in both, but whichever it is, I can't help but absolutely love these pics!
