Challenge 2: Larger Than Life
Challenge: Create an outfit for the Marie Clare woman that could be used on a billboard. The Marie Clare woman is young, intelligent, professional, sexy & fashion forward.
Feel free to show what accessories you would use from Piperlime.com
Time: You have 18 hours to make your outfit.
I thought of the Marie Clare woman as a young woman who is just getting her start in her career in a large metropolitan area. She needs clothes that are appropriate to wear to the office but still sexy enough to wear out for a drink after work. So I made a wrap skirt out of a stretch wool tweed playing with the pattern of the tweed to make it a little more modern. The side slit created by the wrap adds a little sexiness especially when paired with knee-high black boots. The top is form fitting with a dramatic cowl. A pop of color from a red purse & a chunky bracelet complete the look.
Check out what Susi did for this challenge. I think she totally beat me this challenge with that top.
