Leather Ruffles, Flowered Silk, Bows
(we know most of us wouldn't wear the look exactly this way, don't we?)
again, longer skirts, floating fabrics, sheers, leather with ruffles/peplum
going forward into Spring, we can now see the same elements returning,
the big statement necklace,
sheer fabrics, flowers
OK to purchase for Fall and use again in Spring.
Below, both Oscar de la Renta for Spring 2011
the thought is ruffles, ladylike, soft & feminine
in any manner which suits your personal style.
when I was working I had clients of every shape & age;
it was my pleasure (& lots of fun) to find something
for them which said "current" by incorporating the key
trends into what we already knew to be their own style.
it took me a really long time to discover that I didn't need to own
every outfit in the store to be a best-dressed, & happening person.
And, since I'm preaching or teaching...I am really tired of seeing blogs
showing what just happened on the Spring 2011 runways
when most of us are only just now thinking about Fall 2010.
I know, from years of working in fashion, that the collections
are presented for the fashion industry; so the industry people can
make their buying plans, the advertising agencies can turn out
splendid ad campaigns when the time comes, etc.
If I couldn't give my beloved readers something other than re-hashed hash
I would think I had lost my creativity.
So, there! And, now I feel better.
