Ode to Iris Apfel! That’s what the theme is this month.
Welcome to the monthly edition of Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. This month Sonja choose the theme.
Who is Iris Apfel?
Oops, that’s a theme! What should we do with that? Everyone who likes fashion a bit has heard of Iris Apfel. This Jewish lady is an interior designer and fashion icon. Her brightly colored outfits and large black-rimmed glasses make her a striking appearance. Well it would be easy to put on glasses like that and there you have your theme! But I wanted something different. So I took a good look at various photos of Iris Apfel and then I knew what I was going to do for this episode of Match made in Seven.
My ode to Iris Apfel
The nice thing about a monthly theme post with other bloggers is that you are often taken out of your comfort zone! It really took me a while to figure out what do with this theme. I wanted to stay as close as possible to myself, otherwise it feels a bit like a play. After I had seen many photos of this icon, I knew I wanted something with brightly colored beaded necklaces and bracelets. And because I did not have them, I ordered beads and made them myself. Iris Apfel wears very large beads, but I choose some smaller ones.
She wears bright colors, but also combined with black. So I chose to do this for my ode to too. I love the combination of red, orange and pink. I decided to combine that with a simple black skirt. That way the accessories are the protagonists of the outfit! Can’t wait to see what my fellow blogger friends came up with!
Take a look at my fashion blogger friends to see how they have interpreted this theme!
