Inspiring Outfit

One sure fire way to be photographed by the street style photographers during fashion week is to wear color. Mr. Newton captured the inspiring outfit above in Milan for Harper’s Bazaar and I love the combination of neutrals, aqua, orange, and purple.  It not only looks nice as an outfit but also in art and interiors. I think it just might be my inspiration for my outfits and my apartment this spring.

    OK, I’m going to gush, because I loved this post: What an eye you have for trends and brilliant ideas! I learned something new about color combination. Shelter mags should pay attention.
    ps-the Dorothy Parker quote is priceless

    Hi Heather,
    I don’t often write, but just had to thank you for this fantastic post. Can’t stop looking at the Miles Redd for House Beautiful photograph with purple sofa. It’s a work of art! All the pictures and quotes are lovely and wonderful to wake up to on this dreary February morning in Vancouver:)
