I am completely and utterly addicted to Marni. I love this dress. A friend from San Fransisco has it in black and white with a giant brown flower (worn with a silk cardi and brogues, completely gorgeous). I can’t find it anywhere on the web…. Any suggestions?? Anybody??
I have had a lovely time this morning looking at dresses on Yoox.com. If I was in the market for a special Spring/Summer number, I can confidently say that this is a very good place to start. Yoox have an excellent returns policy which makes them very easy to deal with. I’ve set up a new dresses pinterest board to gather frocks that caught my eye. What I looked at is the tip of the iceberg, you could spend hours browsing Yoox and find loads more …… Here are just a few of my favourites….
I’ve always liked the idea of hems that hang a few inches below a skirt. I don’t mean a flimsy hem but rather a strong line that adds length and structure to a look. Every summer I tell myself I’m going to buy silk organza in black, navy and cream and get a dressmaker to make me 3 slightly below the knee, straight, back slit for movement, double fabric big hem for stiffness, fitted under skirt . Can you visualize?? I love the idea of wearing them under a-line skirts and dresses from the high street that would be otherwise too short…..
Are you getting my drift?? (Inspiration compliments of past season Marni)
