TREND REPORT: The retro inspired pin-up trend is huge this spring. Not overtly sexy, these modern pin-up looks bring a certain softness and demure feeling. Think pastels, lace, oversize florals and satin.

 Prada Spring 2012
Rockabilly meets Veronica Lake. So love with this entire collection! The breathtaking satin bodysuits, the flirty pastel pleated colorblock dresses and kitschy 1950’s accessories and prints made it THE show that defined the season.

feb.mar.apr mood boards

Embarassingly long overdue: here are the february, march and april mood boards. Things have been pretty crazy these past few months but I’ve resolved to be more dilligent and consistent with my posts. For all that know me personally, posting anything on the internet (be it pics on facebook or posts on blogs) takes me a criminally long time lol sorzz.

Anyways, for February I focused on graphic midcentury black and white prints mixed with orange accents. Whether it was checkers, graphic florals or spots, anything that made a cool, bold statement caught my eye. As for March I looked at paisleys, a major trend this Spring. Everyone from Jil Sander, Stella McCartney, DVF and Jonathan Saunders are doing it. I love how surprisingly fresh it looks. Say goodbye to those folky, hippie associations! These paisleys are very chic. And for April (and practically everyday of my life lol) I landed on stripes. The ultimate classic print, stripes are always a summer staple. Clean and fuss-free, these stripes exude effortless cool.
