Over the last few days I have had the pleasure of exchanging tweets with @gypsywoman35 on the twitters (she writes at:
www.freewebs.com/gypsywoman35). She asked me for advice regarding an outfit to wear to a business luncheon. She has a gold sequined top and wants to pair it with a black peasant skirt. Having excited the corporate world, the ideal outfit is one that that fully embraces the creative world she now inhabits.
Adding artistic drama to one's look has worked for many female artists like Frida Kahlo, who had a flair for mixing patterns; she dripped in a massive amount of jewelry and swathed herself in colorful shawls, not to mention the flowers and ribbons she would weave through her braids. Will @gypsywoman35 stand out in a room of men and women in navy blue and gray with this ensemble? Yes...and that's a good thing.
