Fifi Re-Designed by Imogen...

Recently, Imogen created a post for La Belette Rouge on How to Dress Like a Literary Star for her blog and I wanted her to re-design moi! So I contacted her and BEGGED... and yesterday she posted Creating Your Personal Style about ME! I feel so honored!!! (because she I can't do it for everyone, but Imogen encourages you to have a go creating something for yourself).

Sooooo I gave Imogen a list of words and few clues about moi such as I ADORE chunky jewellery including cocktail rings. Andddddddddddddd she put together this selection for me... (I must add... I'm horrible at putting together polyvores... so I am even more impressed with her!)

Fifi Flowers by imogenl

IMOGEN SAYS: You can see the selection of words that Fifi has chosen, and I will explain my choices of clothing and accessories based on these words:

Fun: include some colour, don't make it too serious and 'businesslike' with classic clothes head to toe - look for accessories that make a statement. Leopard print shoes create a fun impression.

Inviting: don't wear all stiff and structured clothes, some should have some flow or ruffle to show your softer side and invite people in.

Kind: along with inviting, colours like blue and green are seen to be kinder colours. Overly structured clothes are avoided.

Warm: warm colours such as red make the wearer appear warmer and more friendly. Knits help to add to this appearance.Independent: this person has her own style, she is not scared of larger scale jewellery or dramatic blocks of colour, she doesn't follow the crowd.

Strong: teaming colour with a dark neutral such as black, charcoal or navy will create a strong impression. Large scale jewellery, and colours such as red, denote strength.

Creative: look for some creative detail, such as the unusual construction on the vest (far left). Don't feel you have to match shoes, belts and handbags, mix it up, for example the blue and black outfit (second left).

Intellectual: these are not the clothes of someone who is less than very intelligent. They show savvy and thought in their composition.

Thank you soooooooooo much Imogen... NOW... I guess I will have to go shopping... BUT... think I will hit the gym and Slim Fast bars first... I would like all of these 2 sizes smaller than my current size. I'd also like to add some height... hmmmm... I don't think that part is possible.

Please tell me that I am not the only one that is horrible at putting polyvores together... I think I lack patience... hmmm

Ooh... and another thank you, Imogen... for purchasing FASHIONABLE paintings from MY ETSY STORE... I will be sending a SURPRISE along with your order!


La Belette Rouge said...

If you'll let me borrow these lovely clothes I will give you some height when we meet. I do this weird thing with my friends, I imagine they are all as tall as I am. So, once we meet you will be 5'9".

Cassoulet Cafe said...

How nice of Imogen! Very cool!!!

Kristen said...

This was so cool and fun.

Phivos Nicolaides said...

They look so elegant!!

Char said...

a beautiful wardrobe for a beautiful soul...I've never tried to work the polyvores. :) So you're better than me FiFi!

Fifi Flowers said...

Belette... how lovely to be TALL! I will make sure I wear my highest heels... PLEASE wear stylish flats... I will not be as tall as you but at least I can get close at 5'8" ish!

Cassoulet... it was VERY nice of Imogene... I LOVE her site and advice!

Kristen... fashion is FUN!

Phivos... I'm not sure I'm that elegant... at least not all the time!

Char... you should pop over to polyvore.com and give it a try... it is FUN... but I never seem to find wonder combos... hmmm

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Oh how fun this would be. I have problems putting outfits together like this. I like the heels. :))
I too would like to be taller. :)

I can see you in the third outfit...royal blue and black...blonde hair blowing in the wind...very chic and oh so very french!

lunarossa said...

Dear Fifi, I love the painting of Lily you did for La Belette and I really like your artwork. Would you ship to the UK as well? What a super blog you have. Ciao. Antonella

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Fifi,
Well how very nice of Imogene!

I am vertically challenged myself at only 5'3". I am so with you on the workout and Slim Fast bars after the holidays. Your blog is looking so chic (just like you/vous ;)

Couture Carrie said...

So you! Love this post!


please sir said...

Wow that is so cool - I love all her selections!

Laura said...

These clothes are amazing! I love the bright tops like the electric blue and red. I know they say that it's better to have fewer clothes and more expensive pieces so you can mix and match. Well I am off to my closet Fifi to see what I can do. How is your grandmother doing?

Imogen Lamport, AICI CIP said...

Thanks Fifi! Happy to do it. And all these selections will give you the appearance of more height, so that when you and Belette meet, you won't notice the difference in height.

And I'm looking forward to my art! I'm also thinking of getting something painted specially, having seen what you did for Belette's Lily - I have 2 puppies.


Wayfaring Wanderer said...

Those look like some great outfits!!! What a spread....I wish someone could help me out in that department......I used to be all about clothes and fashion until I moved to the mountains.....now, I'm a simple girl!!

I had to google what a plyvore was.....I had no clue!

nikkicrumpet said...

Great outfits...I especially love that green jacket...and I have no idea whatsoever what a polyvore even is!

Renae Moore said...

I am terrible at Polyvores...I think it's harder as we get older...beautiful...have fun putting all these together!

The Muse said...

I think that you be smartly and oh so chic...as you work your magic in the world!

Fifi Flowers said...

Cris... Imogen is a true professional!

Lunarossa... I WILL ship to the UK... I will ship EVERYWHERE!

Tracie... I am only 1 inch taller than you... heels are quite helpful!

CC... I am trying to keep up with you and all your fashionistas!

Please Sir... these are very cool!

Imogen... I would be happy to paint your puppies! Thank you again for putting me together!

Wanderer... these will not be my everyday clothes... these are ones for going out in the public... maybe to a gallery... to visit a client... usual clothing for moi usually involved paint stained clothing!

Nikki... you should pop over to polyvore.com... you could have some FUN there!

Beverly... FUN FUN FUN... you are right!

Lulu... thank you for not being perfect at polyvore.. I feel better! ;)

Breakaway... depending on my work load... paintings usually take about 2 weeks... the sooner you get the photo to me, the better!

Renae... you can get ideas at polyvore.com and OF COURSE... IMOGEN has GREAT ideas on her site!

The Muse... ooh la la... I hope to look chic!

Callie Grayson said...

wow, she did an amazing job!!
I am horrible at putting the polyvore boards together!! i need to practice and it is about taking the time.... which I want to finish quickly and that doesn't help.

Leciawp said...

Very cool, Fifi!

Imogen Lamport, AICI CIP said...

I'm no polyvore expert! But I've figured a few things out on the way.

I think because I understand proportions and shape it makes it easier to select garments to put together. It's like paper doll cutouts just in electronic form!

I can spend hours playing on it - such a time waster.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

Donna said...

How fun, Fifi!

Fifi Flowers said...

Dessert... it is cool... I must learn how to do it!

Imogen... I never thought about it as electronic paper dolls... FUN! I will work on it!

Donna... it is FUN... now to pull it off!

la la Lovely said...

Love what she put together Fifi!!!!! How stylish, dear! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!
