Fashion That Makes You Swoon and Fashion That Makes You Say "Wat"


Free people posted a picture of their stylist Sarah in her FP outfit. She's so adorable! (I'm impartial to her hair, I must admit.)

They also posted a picture of their dress, "The Fitted With Daisies Dress," which is now available in "merlot." It's stunning

It's also available in black, white, and light blue, and they are all darling.

This amazed me:
Some runway shows are truly spectacular.  (Chances are I'll dedicate an upcoming blog post to types of runway shows.) One in particular is absolutely amazing. A. F. Vandevorst, S/S (Spring/Summer), 1999.
The runway show was held in an old hospital ward, which was lined with two rows of beds. The models were laying, seemingly asleep, and fully-clothed, in each bed.  The spectators sat in the bedside seats, as if they were visitors. One by one the "patients" "woke up" and walked down the middle of the "ward."

Catch you on the flip side,
