Fine Feathered Friend

Ralph Lauren sweater. 3.1 Phillip Lim feather skirt. Pearl (a 13th birthday present) & vintage costume pendant necklaces. Costume jeweled garland & shadow facet bracelets. Black tights. Loeffler Randall ‘Matilde’ boots.
Phillip Lim calls this his bumblebee skirt (model Giedre Dukavskaite walked it down the runway for look #48 of his fall 2009 RTW fashion show), but I feel more like a baby bird. The skirt's cummerbund waistband sprouts stripes of champagne & black marabou feathers like a mobile nest; it literally stands out against a sea of black (a cashmere v-neck & a pair of knee-high boots) & some glass jewelry.
I wore this outfit last week when Jason of Citizen Couture & I explored the Met Museum - check out our collaboration. I've long admired his street style photography & was delighted to find him to be as charming/serene as his art. Jason's carefully constructed pictures transcend ubiquitous street style images: they're modern portraits comparable to works by Romantic painters Thomas Gainsborough & Sir Joshua Reynolds. Thanks for a lovely experience Jason!
