By taking a closer look at some of my favorite Resort 2012 collections, I found myself inspired enough to add some key pieces to my dream wardrobe, and if I will be lucky enough, I will find pretty substitutes for all these designer pieces.
For me, this Spring is all about color – neons, pastels, bright hues, you name it – sheer materials, maxi dresses + skirts, leather (but of course), floral prints … and the rest will follow :
To be continued …
What about you, what you’re eager to wear this Spring ?
You cannot talk about a good sense of fashion in TV Series, without mentioning Gossip Girl. It is maybe the first name that pops in our head whenever we think about the best style, fashion, designers and high-end clothes in a show .
And when most of the people I know are fascinated by Leighton Meester’s impersonation of Blake, with her entire wardrobe of course, I tend to be more of a Serena kind of girl when it comes to fashion choices in the Upper East Side.
Throughout seasons 1 and 2, Serena’s Style went from being “Kate Moss” inspired to mixing vintage with fashion forward pieces, always managing to look effortlessly fabulous whether she was wearing bohemian or edgy clothes. I almost forgot she used to wear jeans :
In seasons 3 and 4, Serena’s character evolved as well as her style. She approached a more chic, feminine and glamorous look, becoming great at mixing fabrics and accessories :
Getting to the fifth and currently airing season, we see a more mature and focused Serena even in the outfits that she picks. And no matter the changes, she kept little glimpses of her love for the boho-chic and unexpected mixtures.
Season 5 – Look No. 01 – Haute Hippie Feather Sequin Vest ; Brian Atwood Power Studs Suede Platform Pumps ; Mulberry Resort 2012 Harriet Ostrich Tote Bag ; Rodarte for OpeningCeremony Reverse Pleated Skirt.
Season 5 – Look No. 02 – Rag & Bone Aubry Top ; Matthew Williamson Antique Beaded Vest ; Rag & Bone Feather Skirt.
Winter is a great season for gathering with your girlfriends, talk about everything or anything whilst drinking a cup of hot tea (or hot chocolate in my case). Think of a warm cozy place and then imagine yourself relaxed, sitting comfortable but of course looking great. That’s the main inspiration for today’s OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) : a look meant to keep warm, look good, feel good.
I chose all of my items from NET-A-PORTER only because it feels like the dream closet : full of everything hip, high-end and extremely diverse. But all of these items can be easily replaced (I hope) with the ones from our own wardrobe, so that shouldn’t stop you from trying.
I used : Jonathan Saunders – Fair Isle knitted cotton sweater; Miu Miu – Matelassé leather bag; Rag & Bone – Portobello washed-leather shorts; Falke - Pure Matt 100 denier black tights; Antonio Berardi - Oversized shearling coat; Jimmy Choo - Youth leather biker boots.
Looks pretty cozy doesn’t it ?
I hope you enjoyed this post.
Having the previous post talking about Rachel Bilson, I thought I should somehow stay on topic. And what better way to do that, if not by going through some “Hart Of Dixie” fashion choices. It seems to me that Zoe dresses much like Rachel, a good thing obviously and that is mainly one of the reasons I watch the show .
If you like Zoe’s style, which look is you favorite ?
