Matrix

Matrix: Something (such as a situation or a set of conditions) in which something else develops or forms.

How does one compare the definition of matrix with our sartorial lifestyle? For myself, I equate the meaning as to how inspiration develops. As with today's style story, the matrix, or inspiration, formed from a purchase.

When you're in the fashion field, you're constantly exposed to beautiful merchandise. You have to be strong, or develop the wisdom to turn a blind eye to much of the items. If not, chances are you'll wind up in the poor house. Not a place I wish to live my life. So yes, often times I have to dodge the bullets that are shot in my direction. These bullets, when they strike, cause you to seize the moment, and to purchase whatever it is that has caught your attention.

Though I recently tried to dodge bullets by performing the famous Matrix bend (from the movie), one bullet did indeed strike; which led to me purchasing a pair of boots that made a huge impact in my wardrobe, and became an insurmountable amount of style inspiration. The morning of this photo shoot, the mood was set into motion when I proceeded to glide the boots onto my feet. I immediately knew how and where I wanted to showcase them. I hope you enjoy today's look, and I'll meet you below in the comment section.

Developed thigh muscles made this pose easier to accomplish

These statement boots needed no further bells and whistles. The photo shoot takes place in a dark and dirty alley in an art district. The dark railings, stained walk, and brick walls make the boots seem almost out of place, yet without a clear explanation, they somehow fit in perfectly. Perhaps it is the simple rule of fashion coming into play...to make a statement in fashion, do the unexpected. While most would slip on a pair of sneakers or casual sandals for this scene, the boots bring life, sarcasm, and artistic expression into this matrix (inspirational) story.

On the top, I did a small DIY. I added elastic in the wrist to remove the bell sleeve.
Silver bangle is a vintage treasure I purchased from a local vintage shop.
Happy Shopping!

    1. They look even more beautiful in person. The green is so vibrant, the heel height is just right, and oh how they make me smile.

  4. This is what I'd wear to a concert! Love the green. I can't get enough green clothing and accessories lately and it's just not out there in the quantity I want. The blouse looks so crisp a flow-y. Perfection! (As always!)

  5. I think you improved the shirt; the sleeves look much better your way. Nice eye!

    1. Thank you so much. I couldn't image wearing a white trumpet sleeve top. A disaster waiting to happen.

  6. Glenda,
    This is such a beautiful photo shoot. I just love those satin boots on you. I love the entire mood of this shoot and I simply adore your white blouse.
    Truly inspiring! I know what you mean by dodging bullets! Whenever I walk outside, I too, have to put blinders on. I am glad these boots were an exception, however!
    Xx, Elle

    1. Thank you so much, Elle. I'm so glad the mood from the shoot translated. It was a great shoot. I loved the pristine boots against the harshness of the alley. Yes, I'm so glad I was struck by this bullet.
