Une Femme - by imogenl on Polyvore.com
I absolutely love what Imogen has put together here, and she's even included my favorite... leopard print! (How did she know?) Imogen says,
As far as Deja's body shape goes, I've not drawn attention to her waist as it's on the shorter side, any belts will make her appear boxy.
As she's got a larger bust I've chosen some larger pendant necklaces and earrings to draw attention away from her bust and up to her face.
The skirts have some flare or frill to balance her hips, but work best in more drapey fabrics. Ideally they should sit just below the knee, and no longer.
High heels elongate her legs and give her a couple of extra inches in the height department. Colour blending shoes to trousers helps to do this too.
You can read the rest of the rationale behind her choices here.
I have some items similar to what she's selected, so here's my first Imogen Inspired ensemble:
(It's a bit tough to tell from this picture but the bag is dark green and the boots are brown. The earrings are dangly and I've added some green and orange bangles.)
I wish I could put Imogen herself in my pocket and take her shopping with me, but the Polyvore she's created is the next best thing, so I'm going to print it out in color and get it laminated, and carry in my bag when I'm on the retail beat.Imogen, I can't thank you enough!
