Kerry Washington gave a very public baby announcement at this past Monday’s Met Gala. With Mother’s Day on Sunday here is an easy-to-wear floral ensemble that can be worn for brunch or dinner. I love a great floral print! You can go either way: bold or subtle. Washington opted for very bold and bright and this Teri Jon by Rickie Freeman Floral Print dress fits the bill.
What was once old is new again is a fashion mantra. This spring, not just one single trend but an entire era of yesterday is on full display for all of us fashion-lovers to appreciate. Victorian-inspired fashion is trickling its way into our spring wardrobe and I must admit, I love it. High necklines, ruffles, brocade, rich colors and textures and full sleeves are now all spring-appropriate looks, proving that less skin can be more.
Thank God it all comes back to the block heel. Roger Vivier can be credited with this shoe silhouette which was considered very new and different 1965, when it came down the Yves Saint Laurent runway. Actually that one had a square toe and looked more like a Pilgrim shoe with it’s large metal buckle. In fact the same shoes has been brought back this season, I digress. I just love my fashion history.
What is old is almost always new again especially when it comes to fashion so it should come as no surprise block heels are once again on trend for spring.
If the the thought of spending $3,000+ on a designer bag seems frivolous to you, or simply out of your range, the hot bag trend of the moment is the miniature version of your favorite designer bags. As long as you don’t need to carry a ton of things (it never looks good to have your bag look overstuffed) or just want to use it for evening many of these nano or doll-size versions of popular handbags come in at well under $2,000.
I love stripes, I really do and while I am thrilled they are once again back on trend for spring, I am intrepid. Why? Well most stripes just are not that flattering. I always love a menswear inspired or boyfriend blue and white stripped shirt, but that’s because the lines are usually vertical. So it got me thinking, what other striped items for spring I could find that are actually flattering – and thankfully I found quite a few.
