Lovely Lace and Ladylike…

Lovelace Gucci Dress Givenchy Sandals

I saw this press photo of Amanda Seyfried attending the London screening of her new movie, and I could not get over the adorable dress.  It’s from Gucci’s pre-Spring/Summer 2014 collection.  I adore the vintage silhouette with its housewife charm, but wait!  …it’s sheer!  I love that the underpinnings are quite modest, as far as those go.  I love the choice of red lipstick against her pale complexion and I love-love the navy polka-dotness of it all! … and don’t get me started on the Givenchy platform sandals!  All. Day. Long.

Spring Trend: The Camouflage Jacket

Spring 2013 Trend- Camo Street Style
street style photo: luckymag.com

Inspired by military fatigues, the camouflage print has been a huge trend this season.  It’s not uncommon to see a camo print jacket worn over black or white tees with jeans and flats.  I’ve also seen a lot of camo print pants paired with tees and blazers.  The 2013 spring season has offered more feminine injections to this classic trend with the addition of high heels and bold colors. I love the idea of mixing dressy and casual, so I found this combination of camo and coral to be quite refreshing!
