But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!
Year after year, the spring collections are the most challenging for me to recreate, simply because I don’t feel like pastel colors suit me and I only own a few of them. So when I tried to recreate the Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 look, I had to start mixing!
And here is the finished result…
