queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Loosely inspired today by Alexander Wang’s spring collection. When I put together a “designer-inspired” outfit, it’s usually not so much based on the actual looks as the idea of the collection and the overall style. In this case, it was a sort of sporty, grungy, tomboyish coolness (note the crop top.) I had some sheer bright blue fabric, black mesh, and other materials I wanted to play around with for a stronger resemblance to the collection…but you know how it is. You’re getting dressed with 5 minutes to spare and you can’t be late to history class because you’re late every day and your teacher may or may not hate you already…so the final outfit is a bit more toned down and rough around the edges, rather than having every detail worked out.
Also, I wore flats today because these heels are so difficult to walk in, but I liked having an extra 5 inches of height for my photos. Just so you all know.
The dress in the last photo has nothing to do with today’s outfit, but I couldn’t not mention it. Seeing a picture of Alice Dellal wearing this dress was the initial inspiration for my semi dress.

I don't know what Alexander Wang's fans, followers or other people would think, but your look is better than the collection. ;)

You are so adventurous! I'm not even a fan of Wang, but I really admire your spirit in evoking him. It's sort of a very modern Katherine Hepburn look...

Thanks! (both of you) I've never been much of a "Wang girl", but I've always admired people who have that effortless coolness...so I thought I'd give it a go :)

I second that. I am not a big fan of AW (hope I don't get a e-bullet coming my way :-) Queen, you do it better.
