|One possible version of Bets|
This whole concept got me to thinking about my characters. If each of them had to choose one outfit as a signature look, what would it be?
Charli was the easiest -- jeans and a white tee shirt. The jeans would be comfy and faded and, in keeping with both comfort and fashion, would probably be ripped as well. Depending on her destination, the tee shirt could be slouchy or fitted, the look finished off with sneakers, flats or sandals.
Dark-haired Marita would go with something black -- black pants or black jeans -- and would top it off with something animal print, much as we first saw her in Casting the First Stone. Just as in that first scene, the animal print would be her pop of color, and she'd layer a black silky jacket or cardigan over the top, finishing the look with black boots, strappy black sandals or black stilettos, depending on the season and her destination.
Angel would, of course, be Marita's polar opposite fashion-wise. She'd go with something soft and feminine -- a casual dress in a pastel like pink or lilac, or maybe with flowers -- with a pair of flats or maybe a wedge if she wanted to be more dressed up.
And Bets? She'd refuse to be tied to just one outfit. Her signature? Drama. And the prerogative to change both her mind and her outfit.
Come to think of it, it's been a while since I visited my Casting the First Stone Pinterest board. I think it might be time to add some new outfits to it.
