Hush n Wonder

fashion, food, and all things fabulous

Tag Archives: Pleats

My dearies, I’m so sorry that my posts have been sporadic!  It’s been a crazy week here for me, but expect some fun changes coming to Hush n Wonder!  I can’t wait!  But enough about me, have you all been following New York Fashion Week?  I’ve been drooooling.   My favorite is, once again, Tracy Reese!  Her stuff is just so wearable.  I’m obsessed with the retro feel (wasn’t I just talk talking about this!?) and her way of making old, new again is utterly refreshing.  It’s the perfect mix of ecclectic and glam and I’d wear all. of. it. 

What I’m Picking Up:

– Teeny, tiny polka dots

– Chunky knits paried with silk

– Fur detailing

– Fun prints (lots of strips and florals!)

The thing that draws me into fashion most are the details.   Wouldn’t you agree?  Take Chanel’s Quilted Handbag.  The prettiest part?  The delicate, little quilted pillows.   And what do you remember most about Carrie in Sex and the City Season Three?  Her huge flowers pins of course.   And Kate Moss, my all time favorite fashion icon, sports leather jackets over the frilliest of dresses, a detail that’s hard to ignore.   One of my very favorite details right now are pleats. And I’m not talking cheesey, 20’s styled pleats that look like they belong in a costume shop.  I’m talking intricate folds the flow perfectly against the body, creating an effect that is the epitome of dreamy.  To get an idea of the pleats I’m talking about, take a look at Atelier Versace’s Fall 2010 line.  Pleating at it’s very best.
