Fashion Wonder

I live conflicted between form and function; my heart cries out for ruffles, lace and pastel pink. My mind longs for the simplicity of a sturdy garment that's versatile, comfortable and long-lasting. Somewhere, in between Tea Party Dresses and oversize sweatshirts... I stand confused.

Green Pleated Summer Dress from Shabby Apple - Can't tell if it's a bright or pastel but either way it's a very lively green. I like the pleated shoulder detail and how the fitted nature goes throught the top of the dress before becoming very free size through the skirt that ends right above the knee.

Periwinkle chiffon shirt from Pixie Market - A color not often available and very calming; polyester chiffon floats with a very sheer effect over the body. This would be a great layering piece over both fabrics much lighter or darker.

All the World’s a Birdcage Dress from Modcloth - All cotton colorfully-printed dress. I really love how this could be considered either Retro or Japanese Lolita ( Sweet Lolita or Classic Lolita ) just with a few accessories.

Lilac Shift Dress with White Lace Collar from Goodnight Macaroon - It could be a short above-the-knee dress or a extra long tunic worn with stove pipe linen pants; there are a lot of possible ways to style it. I like the idea of it coming with a matching accessory that can be either worn with the garment or with something else. The neckline looks almost sweet heart-ish but technically counts as a wide shallow v-neck.

Shearwaters Dress from Seasalt Cornwall - To the knee, all-cotton, with micro-ruffles around the neckline and sleeves. The tie waist detail and floral print make it feel very cute and sweet while the casual shape keeps it from feeling like a costume.

Aviator Jacket by Hideaki Sakaguchi from Koshka - It's waist coat short, which is to say it's a little longer then a cropped or bolero jacket. Real wool lines real leather and it looks very warm indeed.

Grey Asymmetrical Color Block T-shirt from Romwe - Pair it with your favorite workhorse bottom; those old favorite jeans, loosey-goosey linen pants or cut-off walking shorts. This could be dramatic or understated just depending on what you cover your rump with.

One Teaspoon 'Old Flames' Leather Vest from Koshka - Yellow-dyed Suede with lots of perforation on the front two panel pieces while the back remains solid. This would be great over a super-light summer dress to keep the skirt hem from flying up on a breezy day without adding too much bulk.

Grey Color Block Harem Pants from Romwe - Cotton heather grey fabric, high elastic waist; This piece might be the answer to anyone who carriers their weight in their hips with excess material around that area then slimming down to a stove pipe pant leg.

Call Back Open Knit Sweater from ThreadSence - I would get this for fall and winter; you could play with different color long-sleeve tees or turtlenecks to create a super layer look.

Sara Jacket from BB Dakota - A hooded jacket in a more lightweight cotton for summer. The coloration is very similar to a denim look.

Blue Skies Skirt from Free People Clothing Boutique - Made of mostly cotton with some linen for strength and lightweight-ness. I love the spotty shale blue dye job over a lovely ivory floral texture. This is also an unusual and appealing hemline; a high-low hem that falling below the knee in front but ends just above the ankle in back.

Outback Journey Cutout Blouse from ThreadSence - Excellent idea for summer; a button-down shirt in a semi-sheer fabric with cut out paneling for ventilation. This would be great over a sleeveless top in order to avoid getting sun burned while still staying cool.
