Usually when you come to Be Colorful you will read about home decor, painted furniture or remodeling an old home.
Occasionally I will write about shopping finds, music or organization ideas.
Like me, my blog has trouble staying focused on any single thing.
Today is no exception.
Among my many interests is a fascination with beautiful clothes.
When I saw these I knew I had to share them.
Notice she is wearing gloves.
So I was intrigued when earlier this week one of my friends was gushing about and eager to show me the video of Oscar de La Renta's spring fashion show.
She was right, this collection is awe -inspiringly beautiful.
I was mesmerized by the totally feminine "Mad Men" feel to these clothes and
for a color evangelist like myself, the colorful fashions in this collection absolutely thrilled me.
For the fans of the black and white combo, and I am one of them, there is plenty of that look to love too.
Be still my clothes - whore heart.
This collection is just so PRETTY and feminine and not at all like the fad heavy, haughty and perhaps bordering on the absurd styles that you often see in these types of shows.
I was craxy for almost every single piece and also loved that the hemlines here are about a foot and a half below the hoo-ha.
Because, really, although everyone in Hollywood seems to be wearing it,
I just can't get on board with this look.
Eva, sweetie, that would make a gorgeous blouse but really? You look like you should be serving cocktails at the Wynn.
Then there is Whitney.
Ms. Port. Whatever are you wearing?
Your earrings are longer than your dress.
Honey, we've talked about this.
Not only is that hippie inspired rag tag fugly,
i's hard to take you seriously when you leave the house with your booty all hangin' out.
It makes me a bit nervous just looking at you.
How comfortable can this be?
I am such a midwesterner.
IBut hey, it's cold here.
Like Cake said, " I love a short skirt and a Lon n n n g g g jacket" as much as anybody but I guess I prefer something a bit less brow raising.
A timeless look with that edge of saucy glamour instead of skank.
I'd say this still easy- on- the -eyes debonair designer hit it on on levels this spring.
They are "major" but classic.
Now if they could only be a bit more affordable and look as good on someone like me as they do on those models.
Maybe I will just watch this video daily to keep me pointed towards and focused on a more ambitious weight loss goal. :)
Yes, inspiration comes from everywhere.
Today it is from Oscar de La Renta.
Take a few minutes, kick back and enjoy the show.
