Here is Part 2 of the Meese ‘fall-forward fashion show’. Coincidently, the remaining photos are all pieces from the Meese Wearables collection. Here are my thoughts:
1. I had gone to Meese during the day to do some pre-show shopping and the girl working there described this dress to me. I tried to imagine lace lingerie worn over a dress and was intrigued. I loved said dress as soon as the model walked out wearing it. The pink lace and the cream twill fabric were tastefully paired. I was truly impressed by the silhouette and the overall design.
2. This photo is all about the hand-painted purse. I clearly must purchase one in the near future or even better, a fun DIY project.
3. A closer look at the textures.
4. Here is another example of intelligent fabric and texture blending. I saw a lot of that this evening and was quite into it. Here is a grey suede dress. I can only imagine how comfortable this would be.
5. Another example of the wonderful hand-painted purse!
6. Mustard! According to many of my fashion sources mustard yellow will be fall’s colour of choice. I have yet to find a yellow that works for my skin tone, especially in the fall when that lovely sun-kissed skin of mine dwindles into dry ash.
It was the heart-shaped stitching on this dress that caught my eye. Although it is minimal, it accentuates and flatters the body in just the right place without awkward cleavage.
I must add one last thought. As I observed each model walk down the runway, I had one recurring question. Why does it seem that in every boutique I ever visit the dresses and skirts always sit at an unflattering knee-hugging position? After pondering this, I came to the conclusion that the clientele of said stores are mainly office or professional workers who must wear longer skirts. My solution to this is to purchase a dress, figure out my desired length and shorten it with my handy dandy sewing machine. You can easily pay a seamstress or a tailor to fix this for you as well.
