Resort 2012: Chanel

10 May

Leave it to Chanel to turn a resort collection into a weekend event. The complete discrepancy between the fall collection and this one…it’s literally a complete 180. This is sweet and airy, delicate and feminine while the Fall collection was destruction and hobo-chic (or as hobo-chic as Chanel could ever be…). There was series of wedding-style gowns that I fell completely in love with. The really romantic and unusual suit pieces that made up the beginning were both unusual for Chanel and unusual for these suits in general. It’s rare to see such well crafted, beautiful and colorful pieces that radiate femininity while still holding onto that stiff masculinity that is inherent to suits. The second to last gown was a stunner in my book — best of the collection and will,¬†indubitably, be on red carpet sooner rather than later.

Resort 2011: Tibi

29 Jan

I adore Tibi. For someone who cannot afford most runway pieces, Tibi is a quality line — well made, gorgeous, innovative — that I can afford (ish). I love how they pick a few styles and do them in multiple prints and colors, it lets one find a style that really works for them and repeatedly wear it without actually repeatedly wearing it. They use sequins in a beautiful way without over doing it and the green print they use on many pieces is beautiful. Love it — this collection is emerging now online a bit although there is still a lot of last year’s fall out.

Alice + Olivia

16 Dec

Hey guys! So I swore I wouldn’t do anything until after finals because I’m swamped with work…But on my study break I was browsing and came across new Alice + Olivia that I don’t recognize from any shows but is to DIE for. It’s in with their Resort 2011 line so I’m guessing it’s Resort just not from the runway. Anyways, here are my top eight to die for, need desperately, dresses…

1. Naomi Front Zip Bustier Dress: $396

2. Reese Asymmetric Peplum Dress: $368

3. Tatum T-Back Sculpted Sheath Dress: $330

4. Vivian Lace Bodice Drape Skirt Dress: $396

5. Dakota Pleated Cross Back Dress: $440

6. Georgina Fitted Peplum Dress: $297

7. Jocelyn Exposed Zip Tank Dress: $396
