Collection.

Cruise Collection or is it Resort Collection? Personally cruise applies more to me in the event that me and my family usually cruise every year, but I can see how resort does apply. I just don't understand at the current time why people call it Resort, and some people call it Cruise.... Cant we all just get along and call it Vacation Collection, then it would target all of us travelers on cruises and at resorts (any opinions?). Besides my little self realization on the topic of the collections I spent all morning observing them. I found alot of great collections, and some gloomy ones. Don't get me wrong they are all really spectacular but some just use some really grim colors that I don't think most people would want to vacation in, more of a fall collection but some really great stuff. If you haven't looked at the resort/cruise collections yet, I really suggest you take a peek. If you to lazy like I usually am heres some of my favorite collections.

Helmut Lang: This is the kind of clothes that I could wear with anything, and when your cruising, or vacationing as you know. You want stuff that will go with anything, so you can change it up about 3 times a day. I personally cant get over those shoes, and in general would just love all of this in my closet for everyday.

Marc Jacobs: My second true love when I was introduced to the world of fashion (next to Dior) So I couldn't really ignore the fact that I absolutely love everything this man produces. Everything.

Bill Blass: Usually I am not so much of a Bill Blass fan, but this house can create the most amazing dresses and has such rich colors. Currently addicted to any kind of crazy bright pattern he had me quite excited, I am surprised we don't see much of this house on the red carpet. But someone get me that last dress, Its stunning.


Lanvin: The modern edge of elegance I think. Every collection is usually in my top 10 and the Lanvin line is always completely genius. I also loved that he actually used Jeans in the collection, finally realization that people do wear jeans, not just gowns everyday! Majority of people complain that to many people wear Lanvin, but just as the brand is projected to make a woman feel absolutely fabulous, thats why people are wearing the clothes, it makes them feel fabulous. I mean I know it would make me feel that why by just looking at it. And once again... these shoes are phenomenal, every season as well I just lust over his shoes.



Besides lusting over clothes I cant really afford until they pop up on Ebay ill continue. Also I am quite happy to inform that I purchased new shoes, and they should be in my hands tomorrow. I went behind your backs and bought a completely different shoe than the Aldo ones, It was just to hard to decide anyways so I went with these:

I took this picture from Lady Melbournes site, because little did I know until just yesterday that we have the same exact shoes, well Ill have mine tomorrow. And as for today, my theme is "Go Max or Go home" Im breaking my maxi dress out for the beautiful weather that this side of the USA has been soaking up. Although Ive had this maxi dress for over a year and the maxi craze has just advanced, I thought id take it out for a boho test drive.

I feel I'm not tall enough to wear the Maxi trend. When I see maxi dresses in the store, I think they look blah, but then some people, like you, pull them off great.

The pink spotted dress in the Lanvin collection is perfect, your shoes are gorgeous and I'm impressed with how well you wear a maxi dress (I always look like a pregnant nun)

love love love the maxi dress my dear! i'm so jealous too, as i'm only 5"1 so any maxi i bought would have to be taken up a billion miles.
post modelling shots of the shoes once you have them!

Danz said...

Oh that dress is gorgeous dear! The colours and the print...marvellous! Btw, it seems as though the voting banner you have for Laurel has been deleted or something, that's why it's looks all pixelated. If you want, I can email you the picture I'm using. :)
