Hello-Hello from the Great Midwest. Where we have much. less. snow than our friends in the east and south. More than 2 feet in Our Nation’s Capital?
Everything about this photo is just plain wrong.
Evidently our lack of snow is about to change, if the weatherologists are correct. We are standing by to stand by.
Amazingly, New York Fashion Week starts this Thursday; designers will show collections for the fall season while most of us are focused on simply making it to spring. We have sketches from a few lines that will be showing, starting with a look Milly look as designed by Michelle Smith.
Some may recall Jill Biden wore a Milly houndstooth dress for the Inauguration ceremony and luncheon.
Next, a design from Elie Tahari; there is more than one piece from this brand here at the Prepatorium.
Next, Rebecca Taylor’s style.
Why is it we enjoy the sketches over ‘the real thing’ so much?
Our next rendering is from Tibi, an extremely popular line in many quarters.
In WWD’s story on new designers showing at Fashion Week, one group of sketches caught our eye.
The line is called Callula Lillibelle; we are intrigued to see actual pieces from the show.
The actresses are seen in the photo above with Nathalie Rykiel. Two tops from the group.
And two looks in our favorite color.
The line will be available in stores February 20.
Many readers are familiar with our irrational fondness for Mad Men. WWD (Women’s Wear Daily, subscription req’d) has a feature on Elisabeth Moss, who plays Peggy Olson on the show. First, Ms. Moss in character.
Followed by two photos shot by Diego Uchitel for WWD.
We close with this Pretty in Pink via the Pink and Green Scene.
The Nautica Edgemont quilt and accessories look nice and springy to us!
