It’s Fashion Friday around here today, with another installment of “Dress the Designer“! My sweet friend Nancy of Marcus Design is visiting, and she has put together not one, not two, but THREE gorgeous outfits for me!
I am thrilled and honored to be participating in Karla’s fantastic ‘Dress the Designer’ series! Her work and her career path are so inspirational to me, so I am excited to ‘virtually’ dress this fabulous lady today! I adore Karla’s classic, clean and preppy design aesthetic, and I tried to translate this into pieces for her wardrobe by choosing items with clean lines, less pattern, and more texture. I think of classic investment pieces like the Dorothy Perkins blazer and the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag as the ‘custom-fabric sofas’ of our wardrobes! My favorite piece has to be the John Lewis Stripe dress, it exudes the ‘Hamptons’ vibe with a touch of glam like so many of Karla’s spaces do. As a designer, artist, wife, and mom, this girl has many roles to fill so I tried to give her a few looks that could suit this busy lifestyle. And I think the same rules that we apply to design should apply to our fashion: mix high and low end pieces, combine the old and new, and follow the rules but know when to break them!
