The whole collection is easy and that is what Tomas Maier and his clothing are collectively known for. The way colour blocking was done with the chiffon imperfect, understated and yet meaningful. It is hard for me not to like the Bottega Shows because as I mature into the style of my impending 30s. I get the feeling that Maier is going to be my go-to designer. I’m generally a hippie, vegetarian, sexed-up conglomerate but with age I can feel my wild spirit being refined. Bottega Veneta continues to pull the reigns of unbridled youth. In the coming years I know I will find more of their pieces in my wardrobe. So right now I’m looking on at the future and this resort collection is no doubt where my style life is headed.
Honestly, Tomas Maier is consistant and just like Haider Ackemann he is the most consistent in understanding who the client is, their own aesthetic and giving the clients what they want. This is a resort collection for the jet-set and the wet-street.
This collection is filled with gorgeous accessories including a statement corset belt that immediately adds power to each accompanying outfit. The two-tone faded bags as noted above complement the lightnesss of the look. The palette is soft and yet still pops bright. The juxtaposition of which gives one many vacation options depending on your mood. The most successful outfits are those in which chiffon is implemented to varying degree with great ethereal abandon.
Love this little clutch from Revolve Clothing by one of the most underrated accessories designer Rebecca Minkoff. I think she designs really cool, classy and uptown bags with a downtown price. This royal blue ditty is no exception with it’s cute fringe tassle. Available at the featured E-tailer today http://www.REVOLVEclothing.com
TOO CUTE FOR WORDS.
Bottega Veneta makes pink so chic with this Knot marcapunto stitched clutch with the signature brass knot clasp detail. If you’re are going to make a statement about a great cause and can afford the 745PDS (1150US) price tag this gorgeous bag will do the trick. It is the right amount of chic for a pop of colour to the nuetrals you will be wearing next spring. Scroll over the image and click on over to net-a-porter.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) educates women about the importance of early detection for breast cancer. Since NBCAM’s inception, mammography use has doubled, and breast cancer death rates have declined. Still, many women do not utilize mammography at regular intervals. In recognition of the fact that mammography is the best available method of detecting breast changes that may be cancer, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt, and that breast cancer deaths could decline further if all women age 40 and older received mammograms at regular intervals. Fashion Straight Up! Blog , does hereby proclaim October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I urge all women and their families in around the world to get the facts about mammography.
