Picking up where Val left off, let’s spotlight the all shockingly Blazer Dress. Now, me personally I don’t think I would feel comfortable trying to pull this off, ” oh hey, I forgot to put on pants ” look, but more power to the gal who can!
As I’ve expressed before, I do love blazers and how sexy women can look in menswear, so their are many flattering features to this piece, it’s just takes getting over the initial shock factor when you first see it. Which is probably why this style dress has been so popular among celebs, it’s no doubt a major head turner!
I’m not a huge sports fan, but one event I always look forward to is the Kentucky Derby! It’s been happening every year since 1875 and is steeped in tradition. My favorite part, of course, is the fashion…namely the hats!
Everything from the chic to the absurd is seen at the derby and I love that practically anything goes that day as far as head-gear is concerned. Think that one lady’s hat is funny? After a few mint juleps I’m sure you’ll be loving it! Take a look at the hats had me saying, “Well, I do declare!”
That hair! That voice! That sense of style! I am completely taken with Florence Welch (of Florence and The Machine). She is the epitome of vintage rocker fashion! She wears clothing that looks like she raided her great aunt’s closet but somehow doesn’t look like she’s trying and never looks like she’s wearing a costume.
Florence’s inspiration comes from an unlikely source: “My fashion icon is my old English teacher. She used to come to school in crushed-velvet gowns like a medieval maiden. I’m also attracted to doomed romantic heroines, like Tennyson’s The Lady of Shallot.” I definitely have taken a few cues from Florence! Flowy fabrics, bold accessories, vintage cuts, and a mostly neutral palette that’s anything but boring…her sense of style is definitely one to pay attention to!
