When I first started this blog many moons ago, it was as a creative outlet for my artistic side as much as it was for my love of fashion. And what motivates me to keep posting is fun and inspiring projects, oftentimes proposed by brands that I’m privileged to work with. Recently, Donald J. Pliner footwear offered me a very cool and unusual challenge in conjunction with their SS 2017 #ArtOfFun campaign – draw artistic inspiration from their spring collection. These pretty slides immediately made me think of the beautiful shoes worn in portraits of elegant men in their pajamas and intricately-patterned banyans as they enjoy a glass of brandy by the fire. These images create such a wonderful balance between elegance and comfort that I feel is often hard to come by. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fitted dress and pair of stilettos as much as the next girl, but there’s something to be said for the luxury exuded by pajama dressing. How does art inspire your style?
