I few days ago I was going though all of Marni’s spring collection and I came across a look that triggered something of a ‘fashion epiphany.’ In analyzing the collections I tend to unconsciously assume a relatively consistent pace and then pause for those pieces that interest me. Well, I initially passed this one by and then I thought, “wait a minute, this sort of reminds me of something.” I went back to the look and thought of my old, chiffon YA-YA skirt. I only wore it once, on a Jamaica vacation, because I generally had a difficult time finding something suitable to pair it with. Before seeing this picture, for some reason it had never occurred to me that layering chiffon at the top to match the multi-layered chiffon skirt could work. I assumed that it would be too much of a good thing for one look :). But genius designers do have a way of shattering out expectations and expending all fashion limits, don’t they? I wanted to add a little sensuality and delicacy to the look so I layered a chiffon tank top over a lacy camisole. To complete this ensemble, I unbuttoned a long YA-YA blouse and threw it into the mix.
The wind was insane today, so if it looks like I’m squinting a lot it wasn’t entirely intentional :).
