Designer: Christian Dior













Christian Dior: Resort 2012

This resort collection really is one of my favorites to date... one of "color-blocked caftans, cotton pique shifts with bow necklines, swingy, drop-waist dresses with a flounce in the hem" combined with some more tailored pieces like that luxe black blazer and pleated skirt with camel trim. Also, note the fabulous, bold jewelry to reflect the seaside mood, with lucite, like the water, and shell details like the beach for a nice touch... complimented with of-the-moment, striking and nails and lips, signature hats, sunglasses, lovely handbags and sandals. My personal favorites would have to be the long, sweeping styles as well as the shorter, more artistic, flirty dresses—and yours?

  23. Hi Ms. Klaaaaassen! (:

    No. 8 please. And the over-sized acrylic bracelet to go with it.

    And if I was equipped w. better legs, I would have chosen no. 9. Look at the skirt and the metal arms!

    Happy weekend to you my friend.
