Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Bodhisattva from the Late Zhou Dynasty

She has to travel for business, but it doesn't have to clutter up her mind... One of the reasons that she is so good at what she does is her ability to cut through the noise and focus on the essence.

  1. Chic and understated, but with a sense of fun too. I love European Culture green top.

  2. Lovely soft textures and colours!

  3. Even when the post uses a palette that differs from mine, there are always ideas that translate to mine. Thank you for all your inspiration.

  4. What an inspiration, love it. And the ability to filter out the noise and focus on the essence... perfection.

  5. You really should do a lecture/presentation at the Art Institute.

  6. Like this one! Questionably blasphemous to use the image of a boddhisatva this way, but I think it turns out well.
