Hello Weekend!

11 Jun

My husband and I have dinner plans tonight with our good friends from New York. I’m really excited to see them as we missed our annual New Years eve trip together this past year and we are all looking forward to meeting up and planning for 2011. We were thinking Guatemala…but I digress.

What I really should talk about is what I’ll be wearing tonight, a black Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Dress with shoulder detailing that looks not too far off from this one. Even though it’s almost officially summer, I still love wearing all black and I love to contrast feminine details with more edgy and/or earthy accessories.

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Long Sleeve Tunic Dress, $350 at Shopbop.
Loeffler Randall Esther Wood Heel Pump, $475 at Endless.
Hand-carved Wood Bangle, $7 at J. Jill.
Elizabeth Cole Tusk Necklace, $228 at Free People.
Tory Burch Cynthia Printed Shoulder Bag, $277 at Tory Burch.

The Graphic Print Trend

1 Jun

One of the most exciting and inspiring things about current fashion is the prints. Due to new technologies in textiles and computer graphics there is no limit to the range of prints that can be created. I especially love the intricate and expressionistic prints of Tsumori Chisato.

The Ikat Trend

18 May

Ikat has been around for a couple of years now, and going into spring/summer the trend is not letting up. From accessories to dresses, it’s a great way to spruce up a monotone closet.
