Summer Wish List 2017

Here’s what I wish I was wearing this summer: either super-femme long skirts and dresses OR blousy separates that I could wear and sweep about looking rather like a cult leader…

Above: Ahhhhh this is my dream outfit!! From the Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 collection.

Above: Even when it’s sunny out I would rather be at the library wearing one of the dresses above by Temperley London (Resort 2018).

Above: Yesssss. Red, dramatic, self-assured. Rosie Assoulin Resort 2018

Above: My favoured work uniform. Add a really dramatic necklace to get my aforementioned cult leader feel. From the Rosetta Getty Resort 2018 collection.

They also helped to design her clothes which were always an endless topic of local conversation as she never could resist appearing at everyday functions in elaborate fancy dress. The black velvet, fur hat and ear-rings of  Russian Grand Duchess, the livid greens and yellows of Bakst ballet dancer, taffeta bustle and Alexandra fringe, Mandarin tunic and trousers, making each its appearance on some most inappropriate occasion aroused each in turn, among tweeded local ladies, a storm of discussion and criticism, the repercussions of which reached Mrs. Lace, by no means displeasing her.

Spring 2017 Trends: Rainbow

To be perfectly honest, embracing all of ROY G. BIV come springtime isn’t that much of a trend–we all know things get lighter and brighter as the sun returns with full force. So here are some rainbow outfits just for fun!

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Belts

Both myself and CF advising editor Lydia were coming of age where belted everything was a trend–cardigans, blazers, and skirts with a belt were a wardrobe staple for us for years. Lydia observed that we are “so there” for belts, trend-wise. We’re happy to see this trend come full circle, and evidently designers are too since this was one of the most popular looks we saw this season.

The Olsen twins have a serious problem with diversity–their lookbook above is no exception. They very rarely feature models of colour. At least they’re offering fetching obi-inspired belts.

The simplicity of a minimal black belt as seen above and below lends a surprising amount of definition and edge to an otherwise sweet dress.

Love the juxtaposition of the prim belt above with the undeniably glam lurex dress at Vanessa Seward above.
