Weekly Capsule 04.1: Silver & StonesPosted: January 26, 2015
For this week’s SIA, inspired by the Grassi family crest made by Renaissance sculptor Properzia de Rossi, I had decided that I would wear this top – the color, the texture, and the lace are perfect echoes of the silver filigree, and the brown boots and brooch would mimic the carved peach and plum stones.
However, I was a bit stumped when trying to figure out what to pair the top with. My gray pencil skirt and gray tights seem to be a natural choice, but when I tried that on, it didn’t feel very “me” at all. One of my sartorial goal this year is to have more realistic outfits for SIA, i.e. outfits I would actually wear and not just something I put together especially for SIA. That is why, after some consideration, I decided to go with these jeans instead. The outfit may not be perfect for SIA, but it’s perfect for me, and that’s what counts.
