It seemed like today was a good day to offer you something quick and light, and as I continued my way through the Resort 2017 collections, I realized nearly all my saves were red, white (ok, ivory) and blue! BLOG FATE.
Let’s take it in reverse. First, up there are two killer navy-blue sweaters from Sea, which has managed to be among my favorites for several seasons running now. The little sleeveless sweater is reminiscent of granny-square garments, but it’s knitting and bobbles (and white shirting side panels) and so good. And while I think I only love it as a part of this outfit on the whole, I am loving that long slinky ribbed tunic — which I believe is only apron-length in the front, and is also worn here the other way around — over the sculpted-sleeve white blouse and wide pants.
Then there’s the ivory:
The strategically sheer tank is Maiyet; the fringed skirt is Rosetta Getty; the cropped turtleneck is A.L.C.; and the last two splendorous ribbed beauties are Joseph. Joseph has been so good the last couple seasons I don’t even have the power of language to describe my response to the images. But for the red in this equation, I give you the following, also from Joseph:
I’m pretty sure I actually died for 30 seconds upon seeing this image, came back to life with my head in my hands, fully mute, and couldn’t do anything but stare at it for at least 10 minutes. You all know how I feel about red, and as much as I want this dress on me immediately and forever it would have to not be red. But this red dress with those pink shoes? I envy this girl for getting to wear it and stand there for this moment. It’s magic.
If anyone knows of a sewing pattern even remotely in the vicinity of this dress (or a monk’s robe pattern!) that I can adapt to something like this, please speak up.
For those of you in the US, happy 4th of July! And happy Monday to the rest of you! ;)
