Lanvin is in the Lead

Checking out the runway looks for Spring 2011, and saw these GORGEOUS skirts in the Lanvin line that I immediately gushed over. I decided I MUST recreate this look for myself this spring and summer. The movement the skirts create on the bottom half of these outfits is stunning!

SO: The search for the perfect long flowy skirt starts now. Whether I'm out thrifting or scouring the virtual racks of Etsy, I'm making a promise to myself that I'm going to find one (preferably silk, dear universe!) and do an outfit post with said skirt in the coming months. Let's see how the fates of fashion work out for my prophetic wishes! p.s. if you happen to see one in my size somewhere (sm), dear friends, by all means SEND THE LINK MY WAY!

Giddy in Pink

When I found this pretty little pink number for the shop, I think I secretly knew in my heart of hearts that it would end up being mine. I wasn't so sure it would fit, and it actually doesn't (at all) on the shoulder area. So I pinned it! Can you tell? I also somehow managed to make it have a v-neckline, when beforehand it just had a button-up closure all the way to the top. No sewing here, just a little pinching and pinning. I almost felt like our favorite 80's redhead when she walks out of her room in her DIY prom dress. ALMOST. ;) (goal # 8,973,433: learn how to alter my own clothing.)

I think I might choose to wear this for Valentines day if I dress it up a bit more. I'm TICKLED that it is a shimmering light silk shantung, but the very sweetest part is the shape of the skirt, and of course, those ruffles. They move when I move! Yes, she is. GIDDY IN PINK. XOXO

. . . and since I missed yesterday's Music Monday, check out the song below, the video is a tribute to that favorite red-haired gal I just mentioned. :)
