When it comes to match making – outfits with art, that is – inspiration is a two way street. Sometimes the dress comes first, and sometimes it’s the painting. Either way, my favorite part about making “matches” is the challenge of combining art and fashion; two separate, but very closely related entities; into a single force.
I was recently contacted by Sacramento Magazine to do a little interview about Dressed To Match, and for the past week, I’ve been prepping for the photoshoot that will accompany the blurb. I have to say, this is the first time I’ve ever felt any real kind of pressure to create a match. This time around, it started with a dress: this gorgeous Kate Spade dress, to be exact!
First of the all, the palette combines every color of spring imaginable and the a-line shape with the tie creates a really flattering look (whether you have hips or not!). Even though I was stressing about creating the “perfect” match, it was important for me to wear something that reflects my personality, too. The dress is colorful and bright, but tailored and refined. I felt super comfortable in it – even in front of the camera! – and I’m really excited for the piece to come out in the magazine’s April 2016 issue. A huge thanks to Mari Tzikas for the opportunity and support. Check back to see the feature and what I paired this incredible dress with!
