One of the new sections on this blog, known as Outfit of the Week, will be a look into my personal wardrobe. Some will be photos (such as this post or like many personal fashion blogs). Some will be illustrations (as it is absurdly hard to find clothes that fit me. But rather than wallow in the lack of a dream wardrobe, I can put pencil to paper and just draw it all! Who knows, maybe in the future I’ll be able to finally craft those doodled dream outfits).
Without further ado, here is my first installment of Outfit of the Week!
An oldie, but a goodie. I originally put this outfit together for a business interview, only to look in the mirror and feel a Selina Kyle vibe coming on. It’s no secret that Catwoman is one of my favourite comic characters of all time – the Princess of Plunder, the Madam Moderne, the elegant jewel thief turned anti-heroine. When wearing all black, especially in a sleek suit, I can’t help but think of Ms. Kyle.
Given the more classy business look of Selina Kyle in the recent movie, The Dark Knight Rises, I decided to have a little fun and do a TDKR-inspired shoot at Union Station in Nashville.
