|This image comes from here, where you can actually buy the dress, except that it costs 1550pounds...|
|This image comes from this amazing blog by Lee Oliviera. He snaps a lot of pictures on the street (probably at fashion shows seeing as some of the stuff is pretty out there..) but doesn't provide a lot of information on where the clothes are from. I'm assuming the skirt is miu miu as well.|
I love the look and cut of the dress in the first pic but in terms of ease the skirt is definitely the winner. I could make a simple black mini quite easily, or I could take an even bigger shortcut and just buy a nondescript one. And while we're talking about the second picture, the miniskirt one, wowza at that lady's body! I haven't mentioned before that I've been thinking a lot about the whole midriff trend (I might do a Trend Tracker Tuesday post on it sometime) and whether I'm game to try it. I think I'd need to do a lot of work before I'd feel comfortable with it..
And now that I've been researching these mirrored pieces and where they came from it was fun to watch the miu miu A/W 2012 womenswear show online. Lots of matchy-matchy suiting; very "woman wears the pants" sort of thing (remember how I was talking about Prada doing it in the A/W 2013 line?). And howsabout that crazy makeup.. I love technology and that I can be sitting here watching this fashion show in my pyjamas.
