Lesson in Layering: Pastels
While I sat the other night remembering how nice White-Out smells and inexplicably painting it on my legs, I got to thinking about pastels.This trend will no doubt hold as high regard as neon did last summer which is to say by this time next year, you will want to exude oral bile at the mere thought of it. In the mean time though, we’re not a team to pass on trends. Quite the contrary and so here below, enjoy a short tutorial that delves into the small world of Easter dressing and makes it a little mo’fun, mo’fun, mo’fun. Let me disclaim this guy with a small note that will feed into your confusion about the nature of my face. I don’t know why it looks like I’ve just spent three months perpetually plopped at the tip of a mountain wearing ski goggles but that’s the truth of it. Maybe it’s my makeup, though I’m not wearing any or maybe, just maybe, it’s the fact that when push comes to shove, whatever expert repelling you’ve deemed expert is actually just my face doing what it does. That said, do try to keep your focus on that which manifests below it.
Acnejacket. Now, staying true to color palette, it’s time for another layer, this time you’ll want to add a little something-something to the shirt you’re wearing. A vest would likely render most appropriate in this sort of situation–remember, we are layering for spring–it just occurred to me I never made reference to the fact we may be layering for spring so nix the remember portion of that last sentiment and just look. I don’t have a pastel vest, or even one light colored so I went with the blue leather jacket of our collective dreams. It adds a little edge to the Easter mood anyway.
Wink skirt, Alexander Wang purse. A peplum! Eureka. Isn’t there just something so magical about a peplum when you’ve created it compared to say, one manufactured for you and delivered to you from a place that…doesn’t even know you. And there’s my Aloe Marion. It wasn’t always grey, you see. That’s an advance that last summer helped fabricate.
