Don’t apologize Scott and Garance. We, the people that love your blogs, understand, and we know you would never try to profit, in any way, from such tragedy. That said, we look to you to lift our spirits, and to take us to places we would never go otherwise. Looking at this well dressed lady, diverts our attention, even if only for a minute. Thank you.
Pant suits are back! Excellent! I am too young to remember the last time they were “in”, but I love that the cyclical nature of fashion will allow me to partake on the trend without being too retro. :)
Thank you. I seem to be in the minority, but I cannot STAND this geometric print craze. I think it looks so ugly, especially when head to toe like this. Maybe I could stomach the mad cubes if they were merely an accent. Maybe.
When I see the overall geometric prints, I think of my dead grandmother’s ugly old couch. Is that how you all want to look? Bah.
Prada! I love the Prada suit. I do think, however, that the Prada suit deserves a little more polish form the hairstyle. My hair looks like that when I am at work for 12 hours…in a pair of surgical scrubs!
I respectfully disagree… the suit is so complicated and attention-grabbing that a more polished style would, I think, look pretentious and “done.” To my eye, the hair and suit balance each other. (I did enjoy your comment, though!)
I agree with une chatte grise regarding the hair. I think the super casual, almost messy hair is a good contrast to her clothes. I love to see women wearing very strong clothes and then leaving the hair and makeup very, very simple. It makes the whole look more nonchalant; gives the appearance that they are not taking themselves, or their beautiful clothes too seriously. Somehow, to me, that looks more sophisticated than if every hair were in place.
I’m sew inclined to sew a matching print suit like this…it’s fun, daring and really takes confidence to wear. But it’s easier to simply just to do a top and matching pants. I’m going to do Vogue8840 (top stitched three quarter sleeve top and pants) sometime in the near future with a fun, sunny floral print fabric that I got from Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL.
