Dolce & Gabbana Lace Bloomers

What fashion item am I most excited about this Spring season???  Dolce & Gabbana’s lace bloomers that’s what!

A little food for thought…
The bloomer was invented to allow women more mobility and freedom from the confines of the long, full skirts of the 1800’s.  The popularity of which reached it’s peak in the 1900’s when women began wearing them as undergarments.

D&G does a magnificent job of modernizing this classic piece of lingerie into something that is both feminine and fun.   Are you as excited for Spring as I am??

Grey Antics Square Cut Leggings

Grey Ant Square Cut Leggings

Grey Ant Square Cut Leggings

Am loving these square cut leggings by Grey Antics.  A combination of traditional legging style with a slight touch of quirky (the harem flare is a modern take on the classic riding pant).  In fact, I was quite surprised to find that they were leggings because they actually look like pants. I would sport these as pants (would you?)!

Get them now at Urban Outfitters  for a modest $39.99.

Fall 2010 Couture

Seven of  my favorite Fall 2010 Couture pieces from three of my favorite designers: 

Valentino

 V highlights: trapeze coats, bows (galore!) and ecru lace trimmed with feathers for a fresh, modern appeal.

Elie Saab

 ES highlights: lots of tulle, chiffon, sequins and lace classically draping the feminine form, showcasing the same and ever popular asymmetrical lines from collections past.

Christian Dior

CD highlights: strong, vibrant colors sashayed down the runway in floral inspired pieces that had been feathered, ruched and ruffled.  The end result was like a bouquet come to life (just breathtaking).  Galliano, ever the genius when it comes to vision, does not disappoint!
