And so we kept an eye out during…

The little red dress: Doina Ciobanu

They haven’t become ubiquitos in so much as they have become iconic. Plunging necklines are an easy statement to make, slit dresses a stronger one. Envisage them in your mind’s eye, however, and it’s likely that you picture a floor length dress with a thigh-high split. That, or Angeline Jolie’s right leg. But spring 2014 is fast shaping up to be a story of something…

The head-turning, statement-making little black dress

The slit that rises up the thighs. The short hem. The way the the sheer layer responds to the wind and movement thus breathing life into the dress. The way statement after statement are layered into this one, little black dress. The stone balcony. The palm trees beyond it. The water, and all the yachts moored in it, beyond those same trees. All of these…

Lace, bikini and pool side grace

Sun by the pool, read a book while sunning by the pool, swim in said pool, or, to really mix things up, frolic at a nearby beach. I love water, I love swimming, but such repidity bores me stiff. So while spending part of my summer in St…

The skirt to make everyone stare at your behind

A different kind of trompe l’oeil, one that causes double takes – maybe even triple takes – as the brain tries to reconcile the situation.
