So the resort shows are kind of old news, but I’ve been slowly making my way through them. I know everyone’s talking about the couture shows, but since couture isn’t in my budget (although resort isn’t really, either) I thought I’d go for the looks I could actually try and replicate or lust after.
3.1 Phillip Lim
Moschino Cheap And Chic
just absolute lust. I’ll post more another time. More specific comments after the jump.
Basically, these looks embody some trends/currents/ideas I love right now. Tough feminine – studs, leather, hardware, glitter, soft, floaty fabrics, etc.
There’s also statement jewelry – which I loove very much – and simplicity. Simplicity, not minimalism, I’m not quite sure what I mean by that, but I guess, it’s not that things are one color, it’s that there are only a few pieces, and they’re great (see Matthew Williamson). I still love the Olsen-twin piles of layers, but obviously that’s not quite practical these days, so it’s sort of been put on the back burner.
Jackets. I love jackets and cardigans. Maybe I’m just too modest, or I just get cold too easily, but I really wish I had a better collection of things to put over outfits/dresses/tank tops/tshirts etc.
As I’ve said before, I don’t like summer because it feels like getting dressed is all about having lots of great dresses or skirts. Where I live it feels like a million degrees in the summer and the air is like soup it’s so humid and it’s especially hard to wear anything more than a light dress.
I guess what I’m getting at is, I hate getting dressed these days, especially when I look at beautiful clothes like these, which usually involve layering. I know resort is technically between fall and spring when “everyone” is jetting away for the holidays, but since I never buy anything and I don’t really care about seasons, it’s all fair game for getting dressed.
