Now that my summer sandal gap has been resolved, I’ve returned—to use Wendy B’s good word—to stalking another item: the Christiane Celle Calypso Pazzi dress.
Sure, I could simply visit the NYC boutique, but that would diminish the intrigue and pleasure I’m getting from my sleuthing.
On Friday my daughters and I watched a special edition of What Not to Wear set on a cruise ship—Stacy London handled the styling all by herself on this “girltastic” episode. During the “reveal” segment, Stacy wore the Pazzi, in a bright yellow color (more yellow than this image) and heels.
Although I wanted to like the dress on her, I couldn’t. Perhaps it was the heels (I’d prefer flats with the dress), perhaps the cap sleeves (too little-girly?), perhaps the fact that Stacy, like her clients, looks best when “the smallest part of her body” (her waist) is emphasized.
This sighting gave me some great material to ruminate on for the weekend. I plan to visit the Boston shop in early August, where I’ll make my decision between the Pazzi or the silk Julia. Or maybe I'll leave empty handed, overwhelmed by the extensive array of gorgeous silk colors.
Did anyone else see Stacy in the canary Pazzi? And if you did, of course you have an opinion . . . Do tell!
