From poppies at Erdem, red roses at Prada, and dandelions at Christopher Kane, the runways were in full bloom for spring and summer as floral prints came out to play en masse.
Springtime means only one thing on the sartorial calendar: florals, and lots of them. The s/s 12 runways were awash with decorative and whimsical patterns on lace and organza, ushering in the new season’s buzzwords: gorgeous girlieness. The look was defiantly pretty, with beaded and applique numbers at Moschino Cheap and Chic and Prada. Gorgeous floral stickers lay under organza sheaths at Christopher Kane whilst sunflowers sat on tulle at Rodarte.
FASHIONMYLIFE! Since I am packing for my trip to Charleston Fashion Week, which starts tomorrow, I asked a stylist friend of mine to write a guest post on how to dress for fashion events. I was featured about a week ago on her website Mannequinsf.
The best part about being in fashion is all the amazing events that you get invited to attend. It doesn’t matter if it is a runway show, store opening, NYFW or whatever it may be. You must always dress to impress.
Don’t forget to enter in the E.L.F. Mini Makeup Collection Contest! It ends Friday!
I sent the word out on Twitter that I was looking for guest bloggers. The lovely Tajmiah was gracious enough to write this guest post for me. Thanks!
I love clothes. The feel, scent, vibrant colors, way things can be matched and mixed and matched again fuel my passion. I only have one issue, I am a 20. No, I’m not 20 years old. I wear a size 20. Why is that an issue? Well it would not be except that on a scale that begins with a 00 the most luxurious styles are reserved for the lower sizes. It leaves my size 20 at a disadvantage. I have come to realize that this is not an attack on my character, but a lack of passion for full-figured fashion in the fashion industry. Instead my own passion must emerge with creativity and innovation to pull my look together. I applaud Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart for their efforts to meet the full-figured woman’s need for stylish clothing, although you are bound to run into someone with the same idea, I give them an A for effort. Designers such as Monif C. and Jibri are excellent for full-figured fashion and boutiques like Curvysta, in Atlanta, are havens for full-figured women looking for fully-fabulous clothes. Do not let someone else’s lack of appreciation determine how much you appreciate yourself. Love from the inside out will show regardless of your size, and in my case it definitely shows through my clothes.
