I admire designer fashion much like I appreciate art, I wouldn't pay the crazy prices for it (or I would have to frame it) but I do enjoy looking at it. Every season basic silhouettes
are always in style, black and white is timeless and florals are always in style for spring (what a surprise)! I try to stay away from anything with too many details, and my cardinal rule, if you remember wearing it before (like in high school), don't wear it now. This will difficult as the 70's are back (it was the 60's before and it makes me wonder if the 80's are next) and I will try my best to stay out of flared jeans!
Fashion is rarely ground breaking and like the song "Everything Old is New Again" fashion is recycled over and over again. That is one of the reasons I love shopping at thrift stores. One of the current trends I really wanted to find was a fringe skirt that would be appropriate for the real world. Isabel Marant's Spring 2015 has a beautiful fringe woven silk wrap skirt that retails for $510. I found two (on the same day) at Thrft Traders which I purchased for $2.00 a piece. Both ironically in style, one is silk gingham (with tags) and the other a woven ethnic print. I love them both and can't wait to wear them!
