    The pants would be beautiful on curvy and long, alike. Lovely patterns. I feel the need for a marabou hat.

      The marabou hat would be terrific because it would echo the fluffy sleeves ! XO

      Me too, thank you !! Sometimes fashion can be so restricting (I refuse to be a fashion victim !), that being a bird woman must be so liberating ! I remember watching a documentary about Max Ernst when I was working in an art school, and there was so much freedom in his surreal art ! xxxxxx

    your posts are so educational! we actually didn’t know the painting by Max Ernst so of course we had to look it up. The painting is very interesting, as is this stunning look by Missoni. The prints and textures are just amazing!! xoxo

    Awesome! I am a bit obsessed with wide legged pants at the moment 🙂

      Thanks !!! As much as I love skinny jeans, I have to confess that wide legged pants are much more flattering, especially when they’re made in such a beautiful printed texture !
