My outfit for the day- Simple and warm, just leggings, a ruffled pink top (with a lace top underneath, covered by my hair), a black cardigan, and flats.
And now the fashion portion of the day!
I don't really have a specific topic, but currently, I've just been in the mood to awe at gorgeous designs.
I love how Marc Jacobs ventures outside the box, but still creates clothes that are wearable and maintain a sense of familiarity. Everyone knows Marc Jacobs by his style of design, but yet he never fails to surprise us every season. For spring he made a lot of frills and ruffles and gave ordinary jackets and pants volume. He also created the quirky idea of under-wear as over-wear, the type of trend that may not make it far itself, but maybe this will mean more structured shirts with bra-like shaping.
Being a woman, Stella McCartney knows how to design for one. Her look for spring is fresh and gives an everyday style with a pop of color and frills. At her show, Stella showed off her long wavy hair, which usually she has up in a tight bun. I feel like this show was one that she was able to venture outside of her comfort zone and literally, "let her hair down." The addition of knock-out poof to a simple dress, pantsuit, ect., gives way to a new definition of playing with proportion. I also liked the natural make-up she used for her show. It's always fun to experiment with new make-up trends, but Stella showed the importance of remaining true to yourself and showing off your natural beauty.
