spring 2010 has so much color which i love! i’m sifting through all the designers and picking favorites..so much fun to see what’s to come and then interesting how the mass market will interpret it or in some cases flat out copy it…but that’s how the fast fashion industry works..and how many of us can afford these fabulous pieces..
i did not start appreciating threeasfour until a couple of years ago, i wasn’t sure if they were being real out there for the sake of being out there, but no this is what they do and they do it well..i still would love to get my hands on the round bag that garnered them lots of attention a few years ago..i like their silhouettes and the way there clothes drapes and flows..and i like of the idea of owning a very limited piece of threeasfour..i’ll keep dreaming…
betsey johnson..always fun always bold very betsey..she never strays and has always done her thing..i appreciate that..one of my first jobs was working in her boutique when she had one in coconut grove, miami back in 1995..i bought many pieces with our incredible employee discount and back then her pieces were not priced how they are today..dress’s $60-$150..shirts $40-$60 etc..so at 16 i could afford this! sadly i cry today because many of those pieces which i could of taken out of the closet today i gave away arghhh..BUT i did keep a few…mostly my baby doll dress’s which maybe my pre-teen child might eventually want to take away from me..
i see there is a bow thing going on on the runway..and in mister marc jacobs case he never disappoints…oh marc i so wish i can work for you, i love your prints, vision, vintage influence and the fun you put into your clothes…sincerely, one of your many admirers…
