BUT, I'm going off on a tangent. My point is, thoughtful design is the kind I most want to emulate (though I don't see a problem with designs based off the look of something: balance of colors, shape, etc. That's most of what goes into styling an outfit, no?) I find that it is much easier to put a concept behind an outfit when you're designing rather than styling, because, well, in design you can create whatever you want and in styling you work with what you have. So, this morning I tried the whole ~CONCEPT~ thing, though I'm not sure how clearly it came across..whatevs, it's a start I suppose? This is not to claim that I am some kind of //deeply//thoughtful// and //intellectual//person//omg read my poem I wrote//it's about rain drops and//crying blood//brb gonna go read some//really big books///about philosophy/// whatsoever, more an experiment to see what my tiny thoughts are maybe capable of producing.
The idea is suburbia- the area around me every day, so it wasn't very hard to pick up on qualities of it. The tulle I pinned to random places on the sweater is supposed to make the mirrors look jaded. You can't get an accurate reflection looking into them. Since black leather is considered sort of "rebellious," the skirt represents the sort of rule-breaker we all are on some level..but since we are in suburbia, we're rather caged in, hence the cage skirt.
And while I have your attention-don't forget to check CWAC!
