Challenge 2: Larger than life

This is week 2. The designers were tasked with creating a look for “the Marie Claire Woman” that would appear on a huge billboard in Times Square. They said “The Marie Clare woman is young, intelligent, professional, sexy & fashion forward.” The designers had 18 hours to complete their look.

Here is my ensemble, and my accessories from the Piperlime wall:

I am sending an updated wrap silk blouse, paired with a black skirt down the runway. I added a small side slit for extra detail. The look is a little sexy, but not vulgar. (that’s what Michael Kors said) I picture this as a work outfit. For night, the blouse can be worn more off the shoulder. And the animal print shoe. What’s not to like?
This is, I might add, very similar to what I wear on a daily basis. A stay at home Mom, in San Francisco, with a toddler, in the freezing cold drizzle…yep. It screams “me”!
Definitely go check out what Kat did too.

Hold on to your hats for next week. It’s one of the kooky challenges. I think we go to the dime store, and, use what? Make outfits out of gum wrappers and sun screen bottles? We shall see!
