Dior’s Ready to Wear Collection for Spring

Hello gorgeous!!

I was browsing the internet when I came across the Spring ready to wear collection by Dior. It completely took me by surprise! This collection is 70’s inspired and geared more towards the millenniums, but I found some great takeaways for all ages. Are you ready?! Let’s get started.

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s  collection for Dior was inspired by all of the female artists who were never truly recognized for their brilliance. The quote ” Why are there no great women artists?” on the striped boatneck top above is in reference to just that. Worn with wide legged jeans, this is a classic look.

Overalls get a new look in leather. A striped long sleeve shirt and beret gives it a French vibe. Loving this look.

Polka dots on sheer fabrics. What is not to love about this look? Ok… other than the fact that the length is pretty short.  Imagine a colorful cami beneath this, black skinny jeans and your favorite pair of booties.  Perfect for a casual weekend.

A graphic sweater?! YES!! This whole outfit is my personal favorite. Everything here is wearable. I love the idea of layering (and I do it often). Shorts+ Blouse+ Sweater= Fabulous style!

The silhouette above is so sensual. If you’ve ever tried a pencil skirt, you know what I am talking about. For a grown up look, I would wear this skirt with a cropped cardigan. Perhaps one with some embroidery, pearls, or some other embellishment.

Another look at a graphic sweater. I like Godzilla movies and would love to get my hands on this sweater. Hello, Forever 21, do you hear me?!

I am a texture freak. I have been since I was a kid. And I love the mixture of this delicate fabric toughened up with the leather jacket. From girlie to edgy!

Which of these looks speak to you? How would you wear them? Please leave a comment below with your own style ideas.

Bohemian Woman

Hello gorgeous!

Recently someone mentioned on an online thrifting group I moderate, Thrifting, that they can’t  pull off the Bohemian look. I think we can all identify with that feeling regarding one style or another. So I want to share some “stylespiration” with you. Are you ready?! Let’s go!!

The bohemian woman woman is a free spirit. She is an explorer. She is creative. She is a peacekeeper. So her clothing must speak this.

Because she is so colorful, she chooses vibrant clothing. Sometimes she does this via fabrics or prints.

Lightweight, free flowing fabrics flutter about her gracing her silhouette.

She uses strategically placed accessories to complete her look.

Fringe, lace, leather, beads, tassles, embroidery. All these she calls her friends.

 

As you can see, there are many ways you can add this look to your wardrobe.  Think texture. c0acec84a01ca15ba6b4454cfdbc7db0Pair your shorts or jeans with a tee shirt and a cropped or long length coat with boots to gain a boho vibe. Toss on a long or chunky statement necklace, dangly earrings and some rings to complete your ensemble.  Below is an example of how I would create a bohemian summer look.

Or modify this look with a floaty maxi dress, beaded sandals, and a natural stone jewelry.

The Bohemian woman breathes easy. She is confident. She is fearless. She is in each of us.

Are you ready to take a walk on the wild side?
