special guest/FLORA COLLINS: talks about her 4th outfit. #4 in ten acts




What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
A Splenda top, Alice + Olivia shorts, Manolo Blahnik boots

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love the complementary orange and navy colors. Stripes have been big for a few years now and that trend is definitely accentuated here.

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time? 
I planned it!

In 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?
As always, color plays a vital role in this outfit. The Belt and shorts both match the shirt as well as matching and complementing my hair.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
As soon as it’s warm again, I’ll definitely wear this outfit.

There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
To me, this is a sought-out, high fashion casual outfit. I deliberately matched the shirt with the shorts and belt, knowing that I’d make a blue and orange statement. Here, I’m very conscious of my choices.
