Style Notebook: Timpani, Reader Edition
A few weeks back, I posted one of my Polyvore collages for Connie Chang Chinchio's Timpani cardigan. Because of the length of the skirts I used, a few readers were concerned that I had forgotten that not everyone wants to show so much leg. I do my best to be sensitive to the range of people's comfort zones when it comes to clothes. When I choose things to put together on Polyvore, I try to avoid spending over a million bucks for an outfit, and I am usually pretty successful in collecting things that friends of mine would allow themselves to be seen wearing. Sometimes skirts that match the sweaters are shorter than I would like, or the heels on the shoes are too tall, but a Polyvore collage is purely fantasy, and not at all something I consider as "the rules."
However, the post inspired a number of readers to suggest "friendlier" sartorial choices for Timpani, and I want to (gleefully) share them with you here.
April submitted this board (I'm digging the beaded sandals and the beach-casual vibe):
Kathy sent me this idea for Timpani, suitable for fancy work or a dinner date:
Becky had a dressier occasion in mind for her Timpani fantasy:
There's a few more Polyvore things in store, thanks to the creativity of readers like you. Stay tuned, and go knit something. xo
