Valise de la Garçonne, aka The Tomboy’s Suitcase. I try to remind myself that I really don’t need clothing much beyond what I would pack for my next trip, and that as much as I’d like to be a classy, elegant, lady-like creature, I’m much more likely to be the person who climbs up the ladder and fixes the broken gizmo than I am to be the prim princess with the clipboard supervising the process…
I’ve just recent stumbled upon the perfect painting to express my colors and overall feeling that I want to accomplish in my wardrobe: Two Sisters with a Cello, by Marie Laurencin. I can’t actually SHOW you the painting, because I can’t afford to buy rights to use an un-“watermarked” image of it… But you can find it somewhere if you’re really curious.
So in lieu of the painting, I’ve digested the colors and the overall theme that I’m pursuing into a little graphic, shown below.
wanted black velvet! (Little Lord Fauntleroy is one of my heroes)
for sure, if they were available.
skirt, in a less super-swishy version that my die-hard go to skirt from
the last 5 years.
top of some ilk – either a tee shirt or a tank, which could be used for
of my grey tee shirts needed to be replaced.
accent color cardigan, jacket, or layering “piece” to elevate all of these
