My guess is that this one will sell out quickly.
Anyone besides me feeling a bit "meh" about what clothing retailers are offering right now? I'm Bored with Banana Republic, Tired of Talbot's, Not Inspired by Net-a-Porter, Ambivalent about Ann Taylor. It's not that I'm particularly looking to spend money right now, but I miss being able to glean inspiration and enjoy some online RRT (Retail Reconaissance Therapy). I'm envious of women who have "their" brick-and-mortar boutiques and resale stores; I just never have the time to spend hunting down those that carry the right mix (and in my size!) or to visit regularly. Usually my retail malaise is just seasonal; I always gravitate much more toward Fall fashions than Spring. But I've also noticed that retailers seem to be paring down: fewer styles, limited colors. And lately I've seen almost nothing that could be considered Paris-worthy.
Is it just me, or is it boring out there?
When it rains, it pours...
Picture from The Sartorialist.What works for me: the simplicity, the whimsical use of color, the mix of feminine and masculine elements, the proportions, the quality of the fabrics and the bag (Bottega Veneta, I'm pretty sure).
Picture from garance doré.What works for me: the clean lines, the mostly monochromatic look, (again) the combination of masculine and feminine elements, and the ankle pants to show off the killer shoes.
Giovanna!! Does she have a fan club? I want to join!
If loving these cropped pants worn with fuzzy shoes is wrong, I don't want to be right.
Crazy mad, I know, but I want this kimono/coat/bathrobe/whatever-it-is!
