Colored choice 2: olive green

     Yes, from the title of today's blog post, I am doing another Colored choice. Today's color is one of my favorites, olive green.
     Since I haven't done one of these in some time, I'll explain the series again. I pick a random color, today's being olive green, and I find items that I like that go well with that color. Somewhere random in this post, just for kicks, I put in another color that I think works well alongside the featured color.        Get it? It's OK if you don't; you can look back at my last post and see what's going on.
     Ready? OK.

A perspective

 Today, my outfit was a little different. Actually, it was a lot different. I was inspired by an old leather jacket to create another tough meets feminine look, because you all know how much I love juxtaposition. This one features more of a tough look, and that is probably because of the jacket. So sit back, relax, and enjoy another one of my adventures in the art of combinations to make magic.

Something familiar

     Nothing big today. Just a super casual outfit. Today just wasn't much of a dress up day for me, I guess.

Elie Saab fall 2017

     You know how much I like collections. I haven't been able to peruse the web, hunting for collections lately, due to *another* fashion show I'm in. (I know, when does it ever stop? But I'm having fun, so it's OK for me.)
     However, that all changed when one of my friends showed me a collection that completely blew me away. And that collection was property of Elie Saab, a Lebanese designer. And he is pretty darn talented, let's just say that. Even though that's a giant understatement.
    So, I could just sit around and talk for a hundred years about how amazing Elie Saab's work is, or I could show you. I mean, isn't that the point of fashion? To show and not just tell???
     So without further ado, I will show you some of my top picks from this gorgeous and totally innovative collection.

Some simple sketches

     First of all, I would like to open by saying that this isn't a series. I don't know if I would make it a series. I don't sketch as much as I used to, and this isn't about what would make a good new series. I already have a good number of series:
Top Five Faves
Polyvore recently
Shoe Crush
Colored choice
     I just wanted to take some time and show you some kind of old and relatively new sketches. And by "relatively new," I mean that I literally sketched them today. That's actually how I got the idea for this post.
     So, I will show you several sketches that appeared from inspiration in my head. You could say that they're tangible representations of my brain.

Polyvore recently 5

     If you read the title, you probably already have gleaned that today is  Polyvore recently kind of day. So without further ado, I will launch right into the fifth edition of this (fairly new) series.
     Also, if you have a Polyvore account, make sure to follow me by clicking here. And if you don't have a Polyvore? Try it out! A friend of mine recently joined Polyvore, and she loves it, so thats further proof that Polyvore is the perfect place for fashion, art, and interior design lovers to collaborate in one place.
     So, let's dive right in! Here's what my right brain has come up with lately:

Another organza

     Yeah, in case you haven't gotten the picture. I like organza. I like it a lot. Also, I had quite a bit left over from my DCFW project. So, I decided to use the leftover to create a new skirt. It's like a replica of the big, standout piece, only it's shorter.
     I personally love it. I think that even though the bigger one is gorgeous, it's more difficult to deal with. With the smaller one, it's easy to smooth it out and go. However, the smaller skirt doesn't have the showstopping quality that the bigger one has. It's more street style than dazzling formal occasion, if you know what I mean.
     See for yourself! Which one do you like more?
