Good gracious God. Was my reaction when I saw this. My mother's dress who got married in 1984 was just like this - not in a good way. What the hell with the balloon arms?
"Margherita Missoni wed Eugenio Amos in Italy this weekend, wearing a custom-designed gown by Giambattista Valli." says Elle.com and adds "The scion of the Missoni clan collaborated closely with friend Valli on the gown design. The romantic, soft white gown featured an off-the shoulder bodice with long ruched tulle sleeves. Along with Valli’s signature frothiness and femininity, it also starred details straight from the Missoni archive, like floral embroidery and layered textures." making no real comment on the dress.
Well, if they won't I will. I don't care who designed it and I have great respect for Giambattista Valli. But I say no! No. No. No.
The only good thing I can say is that she looks beautiful and the embroidery of the dress is perfect. That is as far as it gets.
.. is what I want to shout at people sometimes. To people who find following the world of fashion is lame. To those who think they are too cool to be true. And most definitely to those who think that the only reason why they currently are wearing vintage shirts and glasses is because they have decided to do so. Whereas in fact they have (even though they claim to be indifferent to fashion world) put those on because somewhere someone has decided to have vintage sunglasses in an editorial.
Listen carefully to the scene. It might not have the correct references or it might. But the underlying meaning of it should always be on your mind.
This may not be your usual blog post you have seen here. The reason is because i am not at work or at home rather i am on the beach. And why didnt i wait to go home? Because my dear followers you cannot let inspiration go by. it has come to my attention that it is not the likes of people like myself (i.e. 25 year olds) to be watched for fashion trends and rather it is the likes of 17 or 18 year olds. While i am here i have seen that these girls are not just trendy but also cool and really inspriational. Of course they too are inspired from blogs or fashion magazines but there is some kind of a zing to them that i dont have at the age of 25. i am surrounded with girls eith anklets (leather or friendship bracelets used as anklets) backpacks of all different colors tiny teeny round sunglasses white bikinis and of course neon bracelets which are not those you see everyday. So i am now inspried from girls we call too young to be true. While someone else could be frusturated i embrace the situation and take as much as i can. You may not agree and if you dont please do tell me so.
