Is that a kindle cover lost in nature? Is that a kindle cover lost in “the woods”? Does the choice of fabric feel familiar to you? Yes you saw it last week when I did Clorinda’s skirt and guess what? This white & red heart kindle cover is for Clorinda again! Who could blame the girl for matching her outfits with her gadgets after all? This is exactly what I had in mind when I did my Oyster card holders!
I don’t know about you but I always feel more confident if I know I am colour-coordinated before leaving home. I’m not obsessed with matching everything by any stretch of the imagination but knowing I have the right bag matching my oyster card holder, iPad holder and the rest of my outfit…hang on, did I just write I was not obsessed??? Seriously, I don’t think I’m like that but it’s good to have fun once in a while matching colours and tones or play with contrasts when planning outfits, just like you would do when redesigning any room in your home for example.
I still vividly remember the words “contrast”, “harmony”, “visual balance”, “pattern”, “texture”, “shape” (and I’m sure I’m missing some) when I did my interior design degree and wondering how the hell I could possibly use all of it to design a room. My mind inevitably froze when I first started until I realised that it’s all achievable by concentrating on a couple of points you really like and match or mismatch carefully. That’s exactly the same with clothes but at least, you’re not playing with someone’s budget and can let your imagination run free and get those creative juices flowing!
In the meantime, I wish Clorinda a fantastic holiday to Italy and the vain side of me secretly wishes that she is stopped in the street and asked “Wow, I love the skirt you’re wearing with the matching Kindle cover” and Clorinda casually replying “It’s a David Pelletier creation, don’t you know who he is?” I swear this is a joke…go blame it on the heat if you don’t believe me!
