How a Daytime Look Transitions for After 5 & Holiday Parties – Inspired by the Dynamic Style of David Bowie.

It all started with my red jumpsuit. Or, was it the mural of David Bowie, by Maggie Keane, that I spotted in rush hour traffic in Phoenix, Arizona one evening? Most likely, both – two sparks of inspiration colliding together in an explosion of re-invented style.

David Bowie’s red overalls worn in 1974 (the year I was born) also inspired me. However, it was certainly more daring than my jumpsuit. His office was a concert stage and well, mine’s literally an office, and sometimes a client meeting over lunch, dinner, or an industry event. So, they are both appropriate for their time and place.

From here, my red jumpsuit from an Anthropologie sale merged with a few other elements of Bowie-inspired style that he sported in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. These include interesting  prints and colors for daytime. Then, a 1950’s vintage style hat, vintage scarf as headband, metallic details and a thrifted embroidered jacket for after hours (interesting shoes may apply all day, depending where you work or, what you do).

An extra shout-out to my friend and talented photographer, Dawn O’ Doul, who helped me showcase these looks beyond my selfie shots. Last, but not least, thank you, Maggie Keane, for creating a fantastic homage to David Bowie in downtown Phoenix.

If you feel inspired to update your closet and or create work looks that transition for the holidays and beyond, let’s talk!
