today, as the Eastern side of the USA faces a major blizzard, the first of our
very mild winter season thus far...
of course, I wanted to think about SPRING FASHION.
it's ALL ABOUT THE LACE !!!
Neiman-Marcus says it like this
LACE, LACE, LACE
not just ladylike.
Bohemian, beachy, flirtatious or sporty.
LACE can be anything for Spring.
day or night.
above, one of my favorites a French Connection
cosmic-beam embellished with lace & sequins,
found here at a very reasonable price.
the lace casual shoe is a KEY PLAYER, just FYI
& the trend will carry forward into Fall as well.
the more casual shoe with the dress-up outfit...
making for a youthful look.
I know, most of us won't embrace this too much.
I had a client of a certain age come into the shop yesterday to pick up some of her altered
apparel. she is flawless at all times. but she had bought "tailored" jeans and more casual
pants, even though her normal attire is a designer dress, one which is seasonless & timeless.
yesterday the temps dropped all the way down into the high 30'sf & she was wearing her
full-length mink coat.
but, the point is that even she is changing her "look" to things more casual.
when I say "casual" I mean designer casual.
not jeans with rips, or sweatshirts from Target.
you know !!!
anyway, the lace is going to be BIG going forward,
so go ahead and find something you will wear & wear.
I'm going to find some of those espadrilles.]
probably not Rene Caovilla ones 'cause they're expensive, but I'll find a pair for my budget
as I know they will be a staple in my wardrobe.
like these below, the Stella McCartney ones found here at Neiman's
or these, from HERE
which we can definitely afford & aren't they wonderful !!!
so while we're all stuck at home over this very cold weekend we can think about
