Hafa Adai, Lovelies!
“Hafa Adai” in Guam is Chamorro for “Hello.” Although living here is pretty much an endless summer, I do enjoy changing up my style to reflect the season. After watching several Fashion Week videos, here’s what I’m loving so far:
- Silkscreen/Painted Prints.
Victoria Beckham and Gucci lead the charge using these types of photo prints. Gucci also brought more embroidered silks to the runway. Gorgeous!!
2. Easy Pieces.
Though DKNY and Calvin Klein stuck to mostly a black and white palette, I do love the mix and match of separates offered. Michael Kors also showed lots of jersey dresses and wrap skirts. Too many times, a designer will create a look that only works with EVERYTHING shown. We need mixing options! Glad to see these designers understand that!
3. Fashion REAL women can wear.
Fashion should be fun and have an element of fantasy. However, we still need to be able to wear clothes for work, weekends, etc., AND should be “wearable” for women of all sizes.
Carolina Herrera’s show offered several looks which work for real life and for women over a size 4. She showed many skirt/top combinations and dresses which emphasize the waist and hide possible problem areas for women.
Of course…we don’t all have the budgets to afford looks off the runway, but we can get inspired and find style that won’t break the bank!
I did a wardrobe purge and freshened it up with new pieces from Forever 21 Plus.
I am in head to toe F21, working the black and white trend for Spring. These platform mules are crazy comfortable, and these cargo pants are lightweight and soft. Throw on a fun tee and sparkly accessories, and I’m ready for date night:)
Are there looks you’re loving for Spring? Please share!
Love, laughter, and shoes-
