Thank you very much ! This feather-inspired silhouette is sooooo flattering ! X

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

Something mysterious and intriguing about the dark feathers . . . Love that xx

Aahhh, I love mystery, thank you ! This urban “bird woman” is very intriguing indeed, she exudes calm and strength too ! xx

How’s my virtual wardrobe meant to cope? I have to have that top!!!…love the idea of birds being the inspiration… xxxxxx

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

Oh, another great compliment from you ! I didn’t know this particular work either, so I checked it out too, and found it quite mesmerizing ! I had wanted to do a post about Max Ernst for a long time until I’ve discovered this sensational outfit ! XOXO
December 17, 2013 at 9:35 pm
Awesome! I am a bit obsessed with wide legged pants at the moment 🙂
December 18, 2013 at 8:11 am
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 !
