This outfit isn’t avant garde, but I like it. It’s sharp. The proportions are fun. The colors are classic. This will sound really dumb, but I was inspired by one of Alicia Kozakiewicz’s ensembles in this week’s People magazine. How shallow am I? Instead of reading about Alicia’s harrowing abduction experience and how she now speaks to teens about the dangers of internet predators, I analyzed her clothing choices. Her hair looked nice, too.
I bought this purse at a Phai’s House of Jade auction in Okinawa, Japan. It looked cute from the back of the auction tent, so I bid on it. When I went to pick up my items, I got a closer look at the purse and the weird faces on it creeped me out, but I was already committed to buy. I carried it yesterday, just for kicks, and learned from one of my more fashionably knowledgeable friends that it is a Versace knock-off. The creepy Romanesque face is supposed to be the Versace logo. It still freaks me out.
