Poetic Flair: Afshin Feiz

I have pulled this remarkably gorgeous bishop sleeve chemise dress with a bateau neckline from the Spring 2009 Collection of Afshin Feiz courtesy of Elle.com (1). This is a very simple, elegant, & comfortable look for day time wear. Iranian born & American educated, Afshin launched his first collection in 2004 after leaving college where he studied literature in an effort to make his parents happy while suppressing his need to design. His inspiration by poetry & love is artfully translated in his collections along with the cultural influences gained from his many travels. And, be still my heart! As he is fan of Tom Ford, Proenza Schouler, Alex McQueen, & Stella McCartney – only a handful of my favorites!(2)

Orange Crush: Agnes B.

A lovely colorful printed shirt dress with collar that I pulled from the Agnes B. Spring 2009 collection courtesy of Elle.com(1). You can tone this down with a pair of silver opaque tights or simple bare legs. Keeping it belted will define your silhouette so stick with an orange-red or shiny black patent. Either way this tailored piece will surely get you noticed.
