How about blue roses?
And not the Tennessee Williams kind, either.
Here are two lovely Vera Wang dresses, both with rosy embellishments, as are becoming de rigueur for fall. Except, of course, if you avoid obvious trends.
I do not own any Vera Wang pieces (yet), but I love her philosophy, as stated on her website: she has “studied fashion from every angle—historically and critically, cerebrally and emotionally”; indeed, for Wang, “clothes are [her] passion and [her] knowledge.”
That Wang unrepentantly combines intellect and emotion puts her on my list of favorite designers, even before I look at her clothes.
And when I do, I’m smitten. I love that Wang designed her bridal wear as beautiful dresses first, the wedding occasion second. (For any new readers, I’m staunchly anti-traditional-wedding clothes.)
I love her sense of layering, of texture. And her use of color is often bold—deep lavenders and greys, aubergines and twinkly olive—but rich and always spot on.
Anyway, I’d definitely wear the navy dress above to my wedding (which took place almost 18 years ago, so I’m really not in/on the market ;-)) or this pewter one.
Could pewter be the new white?
