What says “spring” to you?
Navy and white, of course. But I am also partial to fresh greens at this time of year.
To the right — just flick your eyes over — a green dress.
OK: Technically, it’s a black dress, but so much of the surface is green, yellow and white that it doesn’t read black. I think it reads spring.
This dress is a crisp silk-cotton blend and stands away from the body. I think it looks a little slimmer in person than it looks in these photos, but I may be wrong. These photos may be 100% faithful and reliable . . . in which case, perhaps I should not have bought this dress.
But I love these dots.
Are they dots? Or eclipses of a green sun?
Tell me what you see. I know you are seeing something.*
The Photographer puzzled over the misalignment of the polka dots at the seams and asked what it was all about.
A fair question! Often a failure to align stripes or large patterns is a sign of cheap construction. Here, however, the answer is: Marni. The dress is Marni and the failure to align is representative of whimsy, insouciance, or some other privilege of immutable awesomeness originating in Milan. As seen earlier this year, Marni is capable of pattern matching in the texture of a matelasse.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Dress: Marni from YOOX (still available, does not actually run large, runs true to size — mine is a 4); Shoes: Tory Burch; Bag; Coach Gramercy Satchel; Watch: Michele CSX
