Can This Be Made into an Outfit?

My recurring feature, "Can This Be Made into an Outfit?," started as a nod to the Domino Magazine feature, "Can this Outfit Be Made into a Room?" Well, as I'm sure you've all heard, the amazing and inspiring Domino is folding due to the economy, and it is indeed unfortunate news. In my little way, I will try to keep the magazine alive by continuing these posts from time-to-time.

Doesn't Pierrot look a little sad here? Sometimes a clown doesn't always feel like being a clown...

Pierrot, formerly known as Gilles by Jean-Antoine WATTEAU c. 1718-19
Pierrot

The straw hat is definitely inspired by the latest Marc Jacobs collection, which featured floppy straw hats -- you must wear it tilted toward the front! The rest of the outfit is feminine, frilly, French, and fun...just like Pierrot [on a good day].

Loving that parasol!

To answer your question, the Saturday Market is on West 51st Street just off the Gilcrease Expressway. It's near JRP Speedway. It's not too far a drive from our complex.

I've been avoiding the whole catsuit thing, but the white one is gorgeous - so 1930, especially with the umbrella!
