Vanessa is wise beyond her years. She's never really fit in at school, where all the kids act and dress the same. She's an artist who expresses her talent in the wacky colors she dyes her hair, her makeup and clothes. She's working on her biggest art project, and counting the days until she's grown up and can really start living. That adult world seems closer when Vanessa gets her dream job at the art supply store, Palette, where she worships the couple who runs it, Oscar and Maye. And she's drawn to a mysterious guy named James, who leads her into new, sometimes risky situations. Is she ready for this world, or not?
Today I'm happy to have Liz Gallagher stop by and give us a peek in Vanessa's closet...
Vanessa's 10 Essential Wardrobe Pieces
- Hair dye (A good 'do is definitely an accessory!)
- Printed or colored tights (most of the year)
- Fishnets (the rest of the year)
- High Dr. Marten boots
- Tee shirts, especially with metallic details
- Tank tops
- Homemade jewelry
- Cute bras (so they can peek out from tanks)
- My messenger bag. It's made of duct tape.
Thanks! I'm planning to wear a very Vanessa outfit to my book release party this weekend, complete with pink wig and fishnets. I'm excited to "become" my character for a few hours.
(We wanna see pictures Liz!!!!)
