You Had Me at Parasol

12 Sep

Is there anything more ladylike and feminine than a parasol?  I think not.  Apparently Tracy Reece agrees.  Check out a few looks from her Spring 2012 RTW Collection  – complete with coordinating parasols.

Perfect for a stroll down the beach.

I love the vintage look of this suit and coordinating cap.

This look takes me back in time.

Elegant and Chic. It makes me think of Coco during her Deauville years.

Not my favorite print by any means..but I just love the concept of a matching parasol.

I love this look. I realize that it is not overly practical (or practical at all) - but wouldn't it make for a stunning swimsuit cover-up on vacation. Perhaps I just have honeymoon clothes on the brain...but I think this could be "trousseau terrific"!

Let the Fashion Begin…Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

9 Sep

Even though I can’t physically be there to celebrate American Fashion at its best – I can be there in spirit (thanks to this year’s live feeds and Fashion Week Daily).  Of course it is not the same as the rush one feels as the theater lights go out and the runway lights come on…but from 6,800 miles away, it is my only option.

Here are a few of my favorite looks from today by Wes Gordon – a young twenty-something whose sophisticated aesthetic elevates his talent well beyond his years.  (Probably thanks to short stints of training under Tom Ford and Oscar de la Renta).  Plus…he is a fellow Southerner!  I must give props.

I really need this jumpsuit for our Safari at the end of the month. Wes? Can you help me out?

Okay...so you probably have to be as tall and thin as this model to do the look justice - but I think it is so elegant, and the green belt is charming.

Simple with a neckline twist and a fab color...I think this everyday dress will work on a variety of body types.

Definitely a nod to Oscar...

The Young Designer. Wes Gordon.
