“My hands were too soft.. I had to find some special occupation, some kind of work that would not force me to turn away from the sky and the stars, that would allow me to discover the meaning of life.” Marc Chagall
Today’s outfit is inspired by the stained glass window created by Marc Chagall and installed at the Art Institute of Chicago. It is a luminous piece of work and one I always look forward to visiting when I am at the museum. The blue colors catch the light and the glass story shimmers and dances. The light brings the story of the glass alive.
The sheer silk chiffon blouse is from a New York City designer, Meredith Banzhoff. I discovered this designer at a small boutique in Chicago, Florodora. This boutique is located in the historic Monadnock Building in Chicago in the South Loop area.
I have paired the sheer blue silk chiffon top over a black top and my Eileen Fisher harem pants. A black leather tassel belt from B-low the Belt is wrapped and tied around my waist. It was included in my Fall 2016 Box of Style from Rachel Zoe.
Another feature of this outfit are the single earring and necklace from a designer: Ware London, located in Great Britain. The collection is cutting-edge and stunning. Dogstar Clothing is featuring some of the Ware line in their Australian boutiques. As Dogstar was not offering these online, I located the online site in London and ordered these pieces from there.
The Hunter’s Earring and Spray Necklace are in a dark blue color. They have an oxidized silver plated chain that forms the spine and structures of the earring and necklace. The feathers of both pieces are made from a light rubber.
I loved the asymmetrical play of these two pieces. It almost seems that the wings of the earring and necklace form a circle around my neck from one side to the other. They embody an artistic quality and the vision of a bird in flight came to mind the moment I first saw them.
