    Photo(s) of the Week



    Photos: The Sartorialist

    In the era of the recession, fashion has to rise up against the depressing sale racks and listless outerwear. The easiest way (for me at least) is by reviving old clothes and mixing them into my staple items in unexpected ways. Case in point, adding patterns. Colour-blocking may still be 'in', but to me, nothing screams 'what recession?' louder than a beautiful, outfit-balancing pattern (although a $4,000 Alexander McQueen gown might also do the trick - see netaporter.com, 'grecian bustier gown') I thought these would be some good inspiration photos for the upcoming month(s). Hope you're inspired!

    I have had the 2nd photo saved under my "inspiration" outfits on my computer for the past few months! I think looking at the way different people style outfits is a great way to get ideas for your own closet. I am also going to have a "swap party" next month where some friends and I can take each other's castoffs and turn them into something new and fun.
