Bookoisseur

I read. I write. I spend all together too much time on the internet. I talk incessantly about books, TV and movies. I write for Hello Giggles, and tweet frequently as Bookoisseur.

Tingling, by Kevin Wada

“I wanted that early 60’s look, which was when these characters debuted,  but also something a little modern and fresh.  I wanted to play off  their classic attire and make them really feel like different women.”
- Kevin Wada

I love how this piece works beautifully to demonstrate the connection between the two women through subtle styling contrasts: the fine details of Gwen’s jewelry juxtaposed with Mary Jane’s chunky accessories; Mary Jane’s luxe high-waisted suede skirt shimmied next to Gwen’s shorter jersey/cotton shift dress; gradient stripes versus solid color-blocking; the color balance between chartreuse and plum.
This is one of those rare, post-60’s moments where I actually covet both of their ensembles, as I usually prefer Gwen’s looks over MJ’s. I also love how MJ’s classic sleeveless top is reworked with a gorgeous high-waisted skirt (a major styling upgrade from those horrible you-just-hit-the-jackpot khaki pants).
