I don't really ever mean to plunk down pictures torn from the magazines, but this season has been one of my favorites in recent memory. I like the '70's looks; the frilly white, nearly western looks; the hard and soft put together; and naturally, all of the black and white. All of these pages have been torn out of April's 2015 Elle magazine.
The first look here is Louis Vuitton ... naturally. The stripes are lovely, and the twist of the left hip stripe becoming horizontally makes it so much more textural. Is her arm on her left hip hiding a buckle? I wonder. Once, long ago, I got a hold of a piece of silk (raw) that was striped. It burnt orange and a deep olive color if I remember correctly. I had my mom sew a coat dress from me from it. She put gold buttons down the front of it, not much different than the ones pictured here. I loved that dress ... until the day when I woke up late for work, didn't have time to shower, and thought that it was a good idea to dowse myself with a Perry Ellis fragrance that I was trying out. Well, the try-out didn't work out, and the fragrance seeped into the fabric and never seemed to come out. I didn't wear it as often because of the ... smell. Too bad, it was a great dress.
