DVF And Jumpsuits Equals Fashion Nirvana

Diane von Furstenberg is always fashion-forward predictable. She started her Spring 2012 shows with a series of airy, white dresses - some asymmetrical, some long, some short and all lovely. She, too, was sporty chic. She splashed us with color with a shoulder-grazing coral gown and black white and yellow print gauzy pants and maxis. An orange, white criss-cross draped jumpsuit was totally wearable -- I can't wait for these jumpsuits to make their way to the stores for spring. This year, DVF even took a stab at the Chanelesque with a ladies-who-lunch jumpsuit complete with sparkles and walking shorts.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
