An inspirational outfit for an Easter weekend Party

Inspiration is all around us and can be found in the most unlikely places, but sometimes it’s nice to recreate a look that’s right in front of you. I am particularly fond of this outfit because it can be so easily compiled using your existing wardrobe – which is what I’m all about! Bring together city shorts, a lace vest top or body, granny chic socks & ANY heels and a piece of wide ribbon or a chiffon scarf tied in a bow for your hair. Add some chunky accessories and wallah! If you have a plain wooden chunky bracelet why not paint your own design. The most unique aspect of this outfit is obviously the silk printed jacket which can be recreated using a short dressing gown or bed jacket – and if this is something you don’t have hanging around I found some here and here. Quick, quick, quick though as bidding ends soon! Another perfectly feasible idea might be to use a 100% silk men’s short sleeve printed shirt, something like this one! Using sharp scissors, start cutting from the hem of the shirt up button stand (about 2″ in), up and around the neck (removing the collar) and finally down the other side (cutting of the buttons). If said shirt doesn’t belong to you, just nip in at the waist using a safety pin and tuck the collar underneath. There’s a chance of course that your experimentation might go horribly wrong and you’ll end up somewhere between Miami Vice and Hawaii Five-O,- neither of which should ever be considered inspiring – but it’s worth a try! I may just have to try this myself and post a demonstration… Good Luck!
