A Giant Helping of Sweet Fashion Week Leftovers
I spend so much time going through the collections gathering up images that get my adrenaline pumping but I don't have full days to sit and post all of them (there's so much in so little time!). But New York is so generous when it comes to giving the adorable-cool in countless incarnations that I couldn't just let these sit idle as this is my style. (I even have some London fashion week events to post still, ones that I was actually at. For shame, I know. There was just too much and as you can see under my banner I've got a little project I'm working on...)
And I added a little side helping of stunning at the end...
My daughter wears a grey pinafore to school but it can be bought anywhere and there are many different styles available. So that means I can make one for her. Considering she's only four and has many years of wearing grey Teflon-coated dresses ahead of her (really, they coat them in Teflon to make them stain-resistant), I think we need to make things as cute as possible and I'll definitely be referring back to this Cynthia Steffe collection for her custom uniform. (Whether I actually get around to that is another matter.) If only we'd had choices when I had to wear a uniform at my Catholic high school in Canada. Well, we did at first. They tried a colour code but white became cream, navy become light blue and grey became black denim. We blew it. And boy did they punish us. To this day I feel ill whenever I see burgundy and grey together in clothes - and guess what colours my daughter has to wear?
(Not exactly what you'd call 'adorable' but most certainly a cool femininity from Frank Tell)
Now, I don't believe I've ever uttered the words 'I can't wait to see the new DKNY collection!' before, but the latest is making me pay attention (and to be fair, the last two were quite good as well). And I'm pretty sure I've never been chuffed about black and brown together but add the baby blue floral prints and you get a striking combination that's totally fresh. I love these outfits.
And now for the stunning I promised (many have already seen but I know others have not and it's too good not to share):
