Patchwork Pieces

Patchwork: The design of random squares of cloth being sewn together into shoes and more!
I have fallen in LOVE with some patchwork clothing.
Check it.

These are some normal slip-on shoes with a great patchwork pattern...

I have also seen a patchwork sundress...

These multi-colored statements have been a hit on runways from Ralph Lauren to Coach!

Hope you enjoy!

Flowy Sundresses (Classic to Glam!)

Sundresses are a summer must have. Whether you are on the beach or around town!
But some styles of sundresses are getting kind of old.
Problem solved!

1. The first dress is an example of a normal sundress. I think I had one like this as a child! But if you look closer, there is a tulle-ruffle-duo at the bottom. Like long patchwork, this dress is a classic and very young! Partnered with gold gladiators.

2. The second dress is jaw dropping! It looks like it could be very hot to wear but is not! With a peacock pattern and a low v-neck, this mimics the runways this summer. The bowed "straps" add a glamorous effect. The large hem at the bottom is a delightful touch. The empire waist adds to the summery feel. Paired with gold wedges!

So it's up to you! Classic or Glamorous?

SUMMER TIP: Retro Bathing Suits

1. A plaid one-piece. There is an attached overlay which makes it look like a dress.
2. Polka dots with a spin.
3. The leopard print was very popular in the late 50s!
4. A one-piece. With tiers like an apron! (like I Love Lucy)
5. A one-piece halter. Yellow for a summery effect! A CLASSIC.
6. Simple, Sailor, and very 50s.

Very stylish! Go retro this summer!

Thou art so scrumptious
Simple and yet, fashionable.
I have missed you.
My craving.

What have you been craving?
