Get Into It! (Agenda)

My Spring Agenda, which won’t be as complete as my past Fall Agenda.

  • High waisted, wide-legged pants! Particularly in bright, juicy colors.

To be worn with heels, for maximum sophistication. I can’t stress enough how they are coming back! I can only hope this high waisted trend I am seeing (and been craving) at stores will produce some WIDER legs, soon. I am only seeing really tapered cuts which are fine, but this whole mass producing the 80’s look is going to produce some serious fashion mishaps for those that don’t know any better. Moving on.

  • Rompers! (Jumpers fall under here too)

I have some rompers, that I have bought at thrift stores that are more than 3 years old. They haven’t had the chance to be worn yet but I will pop them out this summer. Some stores, labels, and designers are offering romper styles this spring and summer, with more modern, flattering cuts. One example, that I love is the one being offered here. And with that follows…

With heels, of course, 3 inches and higher. As well as with the rompers, I have some jumpsuits I have thrifted. One of which is so short that I had plans to turn it into a jumper, 2 years ago. Note to self, get on it.

  • Culottes!

You know, looks like a skirt but are totally pants, to the knees. Preferrably in an overalls style, slightly fitted at the hips. To be worn with tights, naturally.

  • 50’s Style Swimsuits

I have wanted one forever! I guess I will just have to buy an authentic one.

 

  • Platforms

I have tried to avoid it, but after buying a pair of woven t-strap sandals with a light platform front I’m into it!

  • More Pencil skirts!

I just don’t have enough! This should be a staple in every woman’s closet!

  • More dresses

Light, airy and bright!

  • More Tights

tights[2]

You can never own too many pairs!

Tsumori Chisato

I can only wish I could afford any Tsumori Chisato piece from her Spring 2007 Ready To Wear collection.

I saw a piece in person at the Honey in the Rough opening last night. If only I had the money to buy that beautiful, sunny yellow embroidered shift dress last night, at the price tag of $438.

I can’t find the dress that I was drooling over last night though.

Trapeze Artist

Another two month overdue post: my obsession with filling up my closet with tent & trapeze style dresses.

Of course wearing them with brightly colored tights.

I have been unsuccessful at winning any ebay auctions for vintage trapeze dresses.  It could only mean that this look will self destruct soon and be everywhere.

Love It (Look to Replicate pt. 1 continued)

These Missoni ads just make me want to strut around town in mini dresses, tights, and heels.

This week’s beautiful weather in NYC is perfectly suiting.

Reminder to self

I have legs like Zoe’s, don’t really wear skirts and dresses much.

Mine may be a bit too chicken legged though.

This picture makes me want to wear dresses full time (even in the cold!) with darling heels.

I love this look on Nicole, simple yet elegant. Scrappy vest thing and scarf, looks great!

Must start to wear more scarves (aside from outside of my coat!).

Sweet Sweet Grecian

Saw this in some mailout thing from Macy’s.

Silver grecian OC by Oleg Cassini dress $169.

OLEGCASSINIDRESS

Sigh!

I would buy this for $169 and I’d wear it with the black patent mary janes I’ve been obsessing/dreaming about. Also with the ring I nearly died when I found out it was sold out, now that it’s back in stock!

Okay maybe I wouldn’t buy it for that price, because the top straps literally look like they were made from a plastic shopping bag, or duct tape.

Look to replicate Pt. I

elle1006

From the October 2006 of Elle I just received yesterday, the 18th (NYC newstands get it before me. Hello, ELLE, REFUND?).

I digress, I am in love with this simple, yet polished look in a Salvatore Ferragamo ad in the 23948232 pages of ads.

The part that I love the most are the tights (footed = leggings, no?). A look I can totally pull off with a long, vintage sweater or a sweater dress from H&M (looks like their usual designs). I would probably finish the look with a pair of wedges or d’orsay pumps the same. I can’t see this as practical for subway hopping though.
