Fashion Journal: Day 15by Wendy Ding: Illustration
ABOUT THE ART
Original outfit: I wore this on Valentine’s day. I’m decked out in my occasionally worn glasses, an illustrated tee over a grey henley, red and black plaid skort with white suspenders, black leggings, red knitted socks, cream boots, and a red quilted bag.
Reinterpretation: I combined the suspenders and multiple bag handles into a decorative top over a bandeau top from the black leggings. The skirt is the product of combining the quilted bag, plaid and sock material. Grey henley becomes slit sleeves and the full-length platform boots are reinvented from the tee. The oversized hair bow is reminiscent of the cream boots and a cotton candy afro completes the whimsical look.
