After my last post about saving Luella, Florrie of Intrinsically Florrie alerted me of her Save Luella Campaign which I was only too happy to participate in. As usual after to agreeing to make an outfit inspired by Luella, I looked in my wardrobe to discover nothing by Luella (boo) and no direct copies of Luella pieces. However I know that Luella's designs do have a big influence on some of the outfits that I wear in an indirect kind of way. When I think about Luella I think of pretty dresses, bows, florals and those amazing colour combinations in her SS09 collection (which is definitely one of my favourite collections) all combined in a clever and quirky way
I have concluded that I need more Luella pieces, especially as they may not be around for much longer. As my outfit is very much a wearable day to day outfit, I decided to create a more whimsical Luella inspired outfit on Shmotter, giving me a chance to create something much more interesting that is not confined by the contents of my wardrobe.
