The Owl and The Pussycat - inspired by Stitch by Stitch Owly Skirt
Inspiration comes from anywhere and when I popped on this Owly skirt from Stitch by Stitch kindly given to me a while ago by designer Sevenstar Amat, once again I was blown away by the intricate work and quirky theme of this piece. The owl in the picture above is Seven's artwork seen on the skirt hanging like a Scottish sporran. You've got to love an owl...so beautiful and wise and the idea of the Owl and The Pussycat immediately jumped in my head.
The Owly skirt I have on is in Mud but it looks more like Forest Green hounds tooth material to me. Regardless, the material/texture is wonderful and the belt of the same materiel holds said owly with a gold chain attached to a pear shape ornament and tassel is just what we've come to expect from the sewing room of Stitch by Stitch.
While in my Stitch by Stitch portion of the wardrobe, I found the Elizabeth jumper in Chestnut, a thick woolen vision with puff shoulders atop of cute knitted bows on the sleeves. It was the perfect accompaniment in texture and thickness for the skirt and those cold winter days supping eggnog heavy with brandy. Having fallen deeply in love with these Courtisane La Vivien red boots, there was no contest. On they went too.
I had a lot of fun putting this outfit together. Its quirky and clever and like all of Seven's clothes, reveals a little hidden treasure.
