special guest/ROBIN ASHFORD MACY: talks about her 2nd outfit. #2 in five acts



What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Big white hat by Sun & Sand, multi turquoise/green linen tweed 3/4 length light weight jacket with a vintage pearl broach, Hanes men’s muscle shirt, white Citizens of Humanity boot-cut jeans, butter color leather belt and Via Spiga bronze heels.

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I had been wanting to wear the jacket but always felt it looked like it was a “Church” or “Luncheon” looking jacket.  So basically I just started pulling out anything that I thought would look good with this great find and that’s how I came up with the casual with a hint of Audrey Hepburn look.

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Spontaneous. Throw it together type of thing.

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
I absolutely loved how I looked in this ensemble! 

What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?  
White was key in this outfit.  It lightened up the look. Jeans and the muscle shirt and the white hat were my favorite way to give the jacket that casual chic look.  The High Heels!!  I can’t leave home without them and the same goes for my HUGE sunglasses!

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Depends how I feel.  Maybe next Spring.

Personally, I firmly believe that there is a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I felt hidden from the sun and tall in in this outfit.
