special guest/ JOY ADAEZE talks about her 9th OUTFIT: 9 in 10 acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Watson & Watson silk tank
Mina + Olya skirt
Sole brogues (snakeskin)
Lulu Frost necklace
Silk turban from my upcoming line
Vintage clutch



How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love the artistry of the skirt and the tank worked as an effortless add-on. I took the laces out of the snakeskin brogues which gave them a cool, relaxed feel. This necklace from Lulu Frost is one of my all time favorites. It’s pure art.



Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
It was composed on a whim!



On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?



What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
In this look, it’s more about the print than the color, which is new for me. I usually add an accent but today I wanted to keep it all about the amazing prints.



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I’d wear this again to an art opening.



There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I like that this is a different look for me. I love trying new things and surprising myself.

    I like that Joy put those oxfords with the dress instead of a mute color it really adds texture all the way through the outfit!

    Love what you did with the prints! They all work together to tell a story.

    I love Joy’s look from HEAD to TOE. The turban places the perfect touch on this flawless outfit. The accessories are not over done and the clutch is perfect. And the shoes are great as well!
