Fashion Friday

Woot!  Friday!  A great time to day dream about fashion {especially since the hubby & I will be bustin' out tomorrow to hit up some of our favorite shops-- look for pics of our adventure tomorrow evening}

The Spring 2012 trends I'm feeling:
-- Sweet sorbet pastels 
-- Floaty fabrics-- chiffons & silks
-- Washed white cottons in layers
-- Feminine dresses with menswear accessories
-- Floral & art deco patterns
-- Roaring twenties silhouettes
-- Polka Dots
-- Tangerine

The Spring 2012 trends I just don't get:
Jason Wu Spring 2012

--Neons...why!?...I hated 'em the first time around in the '80s, and I hate 'em now.  They just are not flattering nor are they natural.  Yick!
Rodarte Spring 2012

--Peplums...why would you want your hips & backside to look bigger?

What trends are you wanting to try this spring & what are you gonna give a miss?


  1. I know it's not "high fashion" but J Crew spring has been ridiculously inspiring for me lately. Glad to see it made the cut.

    1. I love what they are showing at J Crew-- really classic designs in these sweet ice creamy shades!

  2. I'm not really digging neons either, but I do like it as a purse. Maybe it's just growing on me (or wearing down my retinas) lol :)

  3. I actually disagree with you on peplums! (well it depends which kind of course) If they are cinched at the waist and paired with a pencil skirt they can make your figure look all the more feminine and slender.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is most appreciated~*
