kate spade (RIC, CFC, Moxie Fab)


Kate Spade - now this is a designer I could love.  Tailored fun.  How's that for a description?  You should check out her other outfits at style.com.

My initial take was "stripes, see-through panel in the middle with a funky stamped image on it, strip of yellow."  Yeah, the DT had the same idea...  Off to the mental drawing board.  I zoomed on Barbie's t-shirt and LOL - a polka dot handbag, a pink sprinkle donut a hot dog and a gray poodle.  (I seriously WOULD LOVE to own this t-shirt.  If I see the price I'll probably choke...)  This is what evolved.


Used an older sketch from CASE This Sketch.  The B/W stripes had to stay.  The yellow became more than a mini skirt.  Red and white polka dots?  I can't refuse.  And the fun and funky came to play in the form of speech bubbles and the pink sequins.

Also playing at:
CASual Fridays - #92 Color Blocking (though I'm not sure this really qualifies...)

  9. I'm with Darnell....winner, winner chicken dinner! Focusing on "Barbie's" t-shirt was such an awesome idea! I darn near fell off my chair when I saw the sequins threaded on the hat pin! Now this is sheer creative genius!

  10. I see definite color blocking going on here. I love the pink on black speech bubble. The black/white stripes, bold yellow and red/white dots all add up to perfection in my books!
