new growth

Well...Stella McCartney has read my mind. Her resort 2011 line combines three of my most, most favorite design elements and encapsulates them into one fun, seriously beautiful collection.

#1: Lace!

I love this new take on the oversized lace trend - from Prada to Miu Miu and now to McCartney, I fall more in love with each new incarnation every season.

#2: Blues!

I love vibrant, brilliant blues more than almost any other color. I would wear the navy lace every day during the summer! And the sky-meets-the-sea blue of the suit is so lovely - the jacket has literally perfect proportions.

#3: Florals!

One look at my closest reveals my total preoccupation with floral prints, and I always have fresh or dried bouquets floating around in my room or in my house...even in my car! These prints remind me of illustrations from this old botany textbook I bought at a flea market a few years ago - I love how precise and realistic they are.

This suit didn't fit in any of my categories, but I'm obsessed with the lapel:

I love classic shapes like blazers and button-downs, and they're even better when there's an element of unorthodox construction about them. Just that little touch of asymmetry takes the entire look to a whole new level.

  1. seems to me, stella came up with more feminine approach by that lace. i like the black one the most.


Go ahead. I thrive on constructive criticism.
