Trendspotting- White

White is proving to be central to next spring's minimalist movement. Of course Lacoste featured lots of white - as we would expect. But several designers like Vivienne Tam, Derek Lam and Philadelphia favorite Nicole Miller worked more than a handful of graceful stark white pieces in their collection. Miller gave her long white ensembles a tuxedo twist while Parabal Guring worked in solid white gowns as did Adam Lippes who also mixed in white shirt dresses - that btw, boasted a perfect just at the calf length. Next summer white will be clean, sexy and totally flirty with a chicness often reserved for black. The era of the nudes is over. It's all white, baby.

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.
