Floral Destination

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

(Backlog: March 11, 2012)

What I wore: floral polo borrowed from my sister • stripe tank top from Bangkok • floral skirt St. Francis Square • black booties Forever 21 • socks borrowed • bag vintage from Japan
My outfit inspiration that day was one of Isabelle Fuhrman's outfit for her Seventeen Magazine shoot. It was a clash of prints: 2 different floral designs and stripes.
When I saw her outfit, I actually admired Isabelle's look and transformation. From her role for the movie, The Orphan--where she was still a little kid but very impressive with her acting skills--to the lady we are seeing today in the photo. She is really lovely and the print on print styling was really adorable that I wanted to create a look myself which is also perfect for this season.
I actually had a light bulb moment when I saw my sister's over-sized, floral polo. I just knew what I had to do with it. Like in photo of Isabelle, I was supposed to wear it with shorts but I'm still in search for that perfect floral one so I used my skirt instead. My stripe tank top and black wedges were also the perfect substitute. And because I have a thing with socks (again, which goes way back to my high school years) nowadays, I opted to wear one with my booties.
Just make sure, if ever you'll do the print on print combo, that the prints compliment each other. You don't want to look awkward and over the top. The sizes and the kinds of print also matters when putting it together.
To top it all off, I used my Nyx Louisiana which has a pretty cute shade of pink that really stands out.
Beauty Mark: lipstick Nyx Louisiana

I hope you like my own version of Isabelle Fuhrman's look. :)
