Layering Recipe

 



 
Je ne suis pas bonne cuisinière et n'ai pas de talents particuliers en la matière, mais je ne vois pas meilleure façon de décrire ma tenue d'aujourd'hui qu'en adoptant un style culinaire! Modus operandi pour recréer le même look, riche en superpositions!
Prenez un bel imprimé léopard sur un tissu néoprène, des fleurs de saison (pour la jupe), adjoignez lui un pull court imprimé échelle, un gilet en jean destroy pour rappeler la couleurs des fleurs, ficelez le tout avec une chemise en dentelle, ajoutez une pincée de plumetis sur les collants et des paillettes sur les chaussettes, personnalisez vos vieilles Derbies à l'aide de lacets zébrés et émulsionnez le tout!
Je prends donc le contrepied total de ce que préconisait Coco Chanel: à savoir, toujours retirer un élément de sa tenue avant de sortir de chez soi...
Excellent lundi!

I'm no good cook and I have no particular skill in that matter, but I couldn't find a better way to describe today's outfit than to use a food style language! Here's the modus operandi to recreate the same look, full of layering!
Take a nice leo print on a neoprene fabric, seasonal flowers (for the skirt), attach a cropped window pane sweater, a distressed denim waistcoat to recall the colour of the flowers, tie the lot with a lace shirt, add a pinch of  dots on the tights and glitter on the socks, customize your old brogues with zebra print laces and emulsify the whole!
I'm embracing the exact opposite of what Coco Chanel recommended: that is always remove something from one's outfit before going out...
Excellent Monday!
