Prada shirt, Dries Van Noten skirt, Rochas shoes
Love the fan of the pleats on this skirt--they're only in the front, so makes for quite a dynamic shape
Can you tell I REALLY want to go on vacation? One of the downfalls of switching jobs before you take any vacation is that...you end up with no vacation. Not exactly surprising that resort with a small "R" is on the mind-- incessantly. But that puts Resort (with a big "R") on the mind especially since Resort 2013 just passed (one of the many reasons the blog was dormant--too many appointments!). While there were many a pretty thing, I have to admit I was a bit bewildered by the multiplicity of trends. This is not a new...err...trend, but the lack of focus was a bit dizzying for me this time. Of course, this is great for the average consumer who is looking for something specific, or who just hasn't gotten around to embracing trends that have been percolating for some time already. BUT, for the fashion-immersed, is it something of a let down? Does having those many "choices" water down the innovation? Of course, Resort isn't usually known for the innovation factor, but it is often used as a harbinger of what is to come for Spring. After a lackluster Fall, a staid Spring is the last thing fashion lovers need! No need to throw prints and lace and bright colors overboard, but let's do them in some fascinating ways, designers! I need more pieces like the Prada Bananas and the Dries Victorian-tropical photo-prints to guard against the boredom of everyday life, not contribute to them!
