It is a quiet Sunday morning here in the dorms, and with four computers for one hundred and eighty students I usually only get a few minutes on the computer. But with almost everybody still asleep (it would be just after ten here) I have found a moment to say hello!
I miss blogging so much, guys. This is quite an old post that I meant to put up before I left, but I will do it now because I need an excuse to send you all hugs and kisses and hope that you'll hang tight for a little while longer while I'm having the time of my life in Paris.
Obviously, I promise to tell you everything about my trip when I come back for real. Until then, I love you all!
And now, some more resort collections I adored (I know, I know, a whole crop of shows has been harvested since I left, but these deserve my attention too):
One part tailored black and white party elegance and one part gloriously embellished slouchiness has me in tears of joy over Stella McCartney. That oversized dark grey sweater dress with the silver patterns is possibly my favorite piece from any resort collection yet (I am officially calling that Rumi will own it within three months, doesn't it totally seem like her kind of piece?), and the blue and white striped dress is so perfectly Parisian.
Lace, casual elegance, a muted palette with just the right dose of shine - all the pieces from 3.1 Phillip Lim are so versatile for this time of year. I love the simplicity of the white lace shift dress, and how the contrasting grey sweatshirt and metallic trousers are pulled together in their easy silhouettes.
I saved my favorite collection for last. Yigal Azrouël somehow managed to include every element of my ideal summer wardrobe in one collection: casually draped jersey dresses, a subtly colored palette dressed up with punchy accessories (cyan and purple turbans! razzle dazzle trim and necklaces!), and pieces that are sensual and sleek in unusual ways (like the perfectly unclingy jumpsuit and that wonderful, wonderful white one-shouldered dress). My favorite outfit is definitely the cargo shorts with the sweet sequined vest. Azrouël has to be my favorite collection this season.
P.S. I have come up with a delicious idea for a sweet little something to bring back as a blog giveaway. Something to look forward to when I return...
