I happened to wear this old lace jacket blazer thing earlier in the month and I had even taken a glamorous office bathroom mirror picture to show a few friends who were with me when I bought it at a TJ Maxx or similar store on vacation in Park City, UT several years ago.  I recreated the outfit for my art interpretation. 2017_01_30-jan-10-pic

I attempted a better mirror picture when I remembered the deadline last minute and that was my only option. After the photo I realized the gray and white blocks on my quilt design board behind me are a subtle nod to the needlework design manual that the inspiration art was pulled from.

And hey look, this is my 1000th post! Maybe this can make up for missing 100,000 miles on my car. I noticed it with two miles to go, forgot within seconds, and looked again at 100,002.

    […] Rabbit Style News is back with an awesome combo of a black dress and black lace jacket. Stunning! I also love how, in her blog post, she points out that the grey and white blocks on the quilt design board behind her are also a subtle nod to the inspiration artwork. […]
