Inspired by Rochas

I'm constantly looking to collections for inspiration in shape, texture, color, and proportion. Runway looks give me new ideas to play with and are especially helpful when shopping for vintage. 

Rochas' recent show is the perfect example of a collection that gets me excited to visit Shareen again. The designer, Marco Zanini, is so good at balancing quirky and retro-classic all while remaining sexy and elegant... basically the epitome of the woman I wish I was. Here are some of my favorite looks/ideas that are currently inspiring me...
Slinky silk pajamas worn with a little crystal necklace and nubby belted jackets with matching skirts.
An extra-full skirt in a heavy satin fabric and a seafoam green cropped jumpsuit that could almost pass as a midi shirtdress. 
Classic little sweaters paired with knit pencil skirts and leather gloves. Structured long vests thrown over plaid skirts (and cropped trousers).
A roomy opera coat in a beautiful baby pink satin and another fancy pajama set. I'm really into this satin fabric.
 And lastly, a clutch that looks like a rolled-up newspaper. Specifically in the python-embossed leather. I want this so bad.

Interestingly, if someone were to ask me to describe you, I would probably say something along the lines of.... "so good at balancing quirky and retro-classic all while remaining sexy and elegant..."

As far as we can tell, that IS the woman you are!!

Ahoj, ráda bych tě pozvala na svůj blog . Předem podotýkám, že mi nejde o reklamu, ale o to, aby se o problematice, které se na svém webu věnuju, dozvědělo co nejvíce lidí a poučilo to tak laickou veřejnost, která je většinou jen plna předsudků. Blog je věnován poruchám příjmu potravy a hlavně boji s těmito nemocemi. Nehodlám se řadit k thinspo nebo podobným komunitám. Na blogu najdeš i trochu z cesty mým životem, každodením bojem s PPP, ale také spoustu rad a tipů týkajících se kosmetiky, fotek, článků o mně samé, beauty vychytávky, recenze, recepty, které nikde jinde nenajdeš a mnoho dalšího. Kdyby tě blog zaujal, budu moc ráda, když zanecháš komentář nebo se můžeš stát dalším z mých ctěných "followers". Budu se moc těšit na tvou návštěvu a přeji krásný zbytek dne. Andie :)*

1st and foremost that python embossed clutch is EVERYTHING!!!! Secondly I love Rochas this collection. Theyve offered up a take on the "new look" with the addage of oversizing contrasting textiles and the modern pj trend. Quite brilliant if i say so myself.I also want to go on record as agreeing with Melodee

John Michael said...

Just amazing parade of dress. Planed to get one like this for my next birthday.
