One of my favorite trends this season and honestly of all runway trends is pajama & lingerie inspired style.
I’m definitely pining for a set like the one I drew above.
Is the Pajama Wrap Jumpsuit by Asos above not the cutest thing ever? 😩
We’ve seen this trend crop up before. Last spring it was a hit and this year more racier styles are taking over the trend. As noted by Vogue Italia,
“Bra, briefs, garter belts and (lots of) body suits. Style is in the details…”
We’ve definitely seen the bralette and bodysuit trend for a while. 90s grunge style was embedded with racy punky babydoll dresses a la Courtney Love.
I love the juxtaposition of a strong boot with a soft feminine lacy dress.
The modern take on lingerie inspired dressing is fashion-forward as well. Apparently, the trend will continue to appear and give its fans something sexy to slip into fall/winter 2017. Vogue Italia also writes,
“The hues for winter 2017 lingerie include timeless black but also lots of burgundy (replacing classic red for Christmas) and pink-nude, more understated but still flirty.”
Personally, I’m in love, and I can’t wait to wear this trend all summer. 💞
I’m wishing you all & myself a week full of new beginnings and wonderful things this spring. I feel like I need a fresh start. This app I’m trying out, Paint Joy is actually pretty fun and easy to work with. ( This is not a sponsored post!) I just like it. I’ve tried a lot of similar apps, believe me, but I won’t quit until I find the ideal one for drawing on the go. I’m in love with that idea. I’m also in love with wispy feminine dresses right now. What are you loving at the moment?
I woke up with an image of this gorgeous blouse that was some kind of cross between hippie and Victorian. I couldn’t quite capture it, but I’m going to keep trying. I like this anyway, for the most part, but it turned into something else.
That’s okay though, art is like life, it leads you down mysterious roads. Sometimes it works, other times you have to keep searching.
Today and every day we should be whoever we want to be and do whatever we want to do, to paraphrase Coco Chanel. Love all the inspiring women in my life & those who’ve come before us. Let’s inspire girls to be the innovators & leaders of tomorrow.
Even though the world as we know it has been turned a little on its side as we go forward into a new year and a controversial (to say the least) presidency, I’m trying to remain grateful and feel the love that remains. Today I felt loved after receiving so many birthday wishes. I truly appreciate each one and think it’s time to plant some seeds of hope.
I’ve been feeling a bit disenchanted the past few days. (Lack of sleep didn’t help). I started thinking of all the things I love today, including this blog, and my readers, and realized, when some things suck, you can always turn a new page. You can choose to look at things differently. That’s what I’m doing today, on my birthday.
I made this illustration to illustrate a dress a feminine, slightly kitschy retro dress I envisioned for Valentine’s Day.
