The Muse: Panoply

 What a great word: panoply. A complete or impressive array of things. I like to think that  a good wardrobe would be exactly that. A treasure trove of patterns and textures, a kaleidoscope of colors and a wealth of hues. Different fabrics, materials, time periods, sources, all coming together to make that complete and impressive array. Think about playing dress up when you were a kid, having a trunk of magic you could pull out and dress up in. I like to think my wardrobe is still that, and every time I visit I have a panoply to choose from and as varied as the rest of the world that we live in. Canvas, feathers, leather, silk, cotton, plastic, metal, glass...this outfit has it all, a panoply in itself.

  1. I love this outfit Liz! I have to start being more creative with my wardrobe now that I am in New York City. I'll keep reading for more inspiration!

  2. Hey I'm all about improving you kid, its just like when you got braces. Before (you) After (me). I have no doubt your wardrobe will be just as beautiful as your teeth.
