This past weekend I took a little trip out west to see my friend, Lana, in Seattle. I learned a tons of things American and got to see some nooks and crannies of Seattle that I would never have seen before. But more on my favourites from our time together on Friday. Instead today I want to show you some of my favourite fashion finds from our adventure at the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. I was glad that Lana picked this as it is something she would have had to do alone and it is something I would never had seen. I felt completely inspired being there: seeing his sketches, his art, his dresses. Wow. It made me really wish that I had done something with fashion in my career.
So to have some fun, Lana and I picked out a dress for each of our blogging friends in the Blended Blog, based on what we knew about their style and/or how we'd want to dress them. They are as follows:
[Tweet "Dressing my blog friends in Yves Saint Laurent"]
For Whitney we picked this funky coloured number. She just pulled off a week of LulaRoe fashion and she always has something fun mixed together, also when I think of her I think of shades of mustard and a tealy blue.
For Abbie I picked this fun number because to know Abbie is to know pure, authentic joy and if anyone can pull off this dress, she absolutely can.
Lana picked this one specifically for Sarah because Sarah does pink so perfectly. She always dresses all outfits up with flair and class and you can bet that there will be some fun pop of colour somewhere.
This dress was the original inspiration for our game. It was found at the very end of the maze of an exhibit and when we saw it we thought immediately of Shaunacey and then decided to go backwards through the whole place to find one for all the other girls. A month or so ago Shaunacey showcased a beautiful fall floral long dress and now I want them everywhere I go. Including this one, which would look great on her.
This dress was picked for Lisa and while I think the lowcut part in the front would likely be too risqué for her (how would ones' boobs stay in that anyway??) I think the cut and the colour definitely suits her. She has a very classy style but some edge to her too.
We immediately thought that if anyone was going to pull off this fun outfit, it would be our Andrea. While we haven't met her (yet!), I don't think I would even look twice if she wore it. I have never seen anyone who can pull of so many different colours and textures as Andrea.
Lana led me to gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent for herself and I completely agreed with her pick. If I could use one word to describe Lana, I would use 'ethereal' and this is what the dress would look like to depict that word.
Leslie spent her career as a librarian, so we decided to pick something that she could wear in her job....so we then walked around wondering what a spicy librarian would wear and this is what we picked. I also wanted to steal these Mary Poppins-esque boots. Which is my new obsession.
Now Nicole, that was a fun one. If you have been following her at all, you would know that since April she has lost 120(ish) lbs. Seriously. The woman amazes me. So we wanted to find something sexy and fun for her while she's transitioning into her new body, she also has a little bohemian flair to her, so I liked this one the best.
Alison is a tomboy/farmgirl/athlete with really great style. She is also one that won't see often in a dress, so we decided to have some fun and pick out a velour pant suit for her. Muahahahahhaah. She also has long legs, so she could totally rock this whilst taming her cats.
Lana picked this YSL out for Carrie because Carrie was the one who helped her discover animal print and Carrie also can rock various animal prints like nobody else we know.
This dress made us immediately think of Katie because of all the fun that she is and that this dress represents. This dress would fit her so perfectly!
This dress was picked for Sheila because we wanted to bling her up and make her sparkly. I was originally looking for something stripey and nautical but then we decided to go brocade and sparkly. The next day we saw pictures of what Sheila wore to her 25th anniversary celebrations and she pulled off some sparkle in a beautiful gown, so I'm glad we went with this one!
This last dress I picked for my BFF, Christy because it is exactly something she would wear and I think she even has a shirt like this that I have coveted before.
Oh wait! I forgot myself! I couldn't decide so I picked two Yves Saint Laurent dresses, go figure. They both are something I would want to wear and I would likely just pull a costume change and work both of them, because why not.
