Last Resort (See Jane Wash Ashore)

If you're anything like me, you fawned over Closet Fashionista's post yesterday featuring Phillip Lim's 2010 Resort Collection.  Sure, it debuted back in 2009, but that's all the more reason to sing praises of Mr. Lim's relevance in the fashion industry.  He has a gift of making basic pieces (that are most likely already sitting in your closet) look new again.  The 2010 Resort Collection is fresh, modern and full of wearable separates that you'll be wearing for seasons to come.


 A few things we can learn from this collection:
  1. Lace on lace is possible without looking like a doily.
  2. A simple, white dress should be, hands down, one of the most important purchases of the summer.
  3. You can wear a cropped shirt without looking like Kelly Kapowski (just as long as you wear high-waisted bottoms).
  4. Caramel-colored leather jackets are also warm weather-friendly.
  5. Lastly, only Rachel Bilson can pull off a gold lamé shorts-suit.

Have a fantastic weekend!

these are so pretty! I have a crush on some carmel colored shorts. I think I will have to get them as they would be good for summer and fall :)

Gosh judging from this, lace on lace is not only possible - it's fantastic!! I'm adoring the white dress as well, I'm sad to report that I don't own one - but I'm going to need to make sure it's on my list of summer items to buy!
