Weekly Capsule 36.1 & SIA: The Girl In The WoodPosted: September 7, 2015 | |
Happy Labor Day, US readers! This capsule is going to be a bit different, because last week, when I wore it, was a short work week for me. Tuesday is my day off, then it was Vietnam’s Independence Day celebration on Wednesday, and on Friday I left for a pretty exciting trip that I will write about in upcoming posts (brace yourselves – lots and lots of pictures), so there are only two looks in the capsule.
Without further ado, this is the first outfit – inspired by Su Blackwell’s amazing paper sculpture, “The Girl in the Wood”. I have worn this shirt and these pants together before, but the print of the shirt mimics the printing on the pages of a book so perfectly that I couldn’t pass it up. And of course I had to add my book necklace too. I would’ve worn a skirt, like the girl in the sculpture, but in this rain it wasn’t practical.
And yes, it finally rained. Like, really rained. And my room promptly got flooded. Yay.
Shirt & Heels: local shop, Pants: thrifted, Necklace: self-made
