TomboyPosted: July 31, 2013
I’m aware of how ironic it is that I chose a tomboy outfit for a painting called “Woman of Substance“, but I didn’t plan it. I just looked at the painting and thought, “OK, white shirt, my teal pants (because it’s just been raining and I didn’t want to turn into a mosquitoes’ buffet, so no skirt), those oxfords because there’s a bit of brownish orange in the lilies…” When I put all the pieces together, I realized it kinda looks like those 1950’s tomboy outfits, so I added a scarf to complete the look. Of course a true 1950’s tomboy outfit would be a button-up shirt and straight-legged jeans instead of a blouse and skinny jeans, but I feel this is a good interpretation. Like a slightly more modern update on a vintage look. Which of course describes my style perfectly, so I’m happy with it.
