SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
FLORA COLLINS TALKS ABOUT HER 7TH OUTFIT

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
I used an Alice + Olivia dress and American Eagle heels.

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love the simple elegance of the dress paired with the girly heels. The cherry print of the shoes corresponds nicely with the dress’s floral pattern.

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

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
8

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This outfit doesn’t need accessories because the dress screams color. I love its billowing fit that shows legs without being too revealing.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I would definitely wear it when it becomes warm out again.

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?
This a good throw-on outfit for me when I’m running late for a more formal lunch. I wear this particular outfit to Easter Brunch with my father’s family or at my grandmother’s country club. It’s easy and connotes springtime.
