Resort 2007

*First of all, I am so sorry that I have been M.I.A. for the past few weeks. It was crunch time and I had to put my nose to the grindstone, even though there were so many topics I wanted to write about. I am so excited to get back to posting!

Oh, a resort. A tropical cabana, a yacht, or a white sandy beach. Doesn't that just sound nice? But is it important enough to have its own collection designed around it? Evidently designers are saying yes, and so the Resort Collection was born. The resort collections are not just for the ridiculously well traveled and wealthy, they also give a preview of trends to come. These collections are a chance for a designer to test-drive a trend before the more popular spring collection hits the runway.

Last month Chanel, Christian Dior, and Alberta Ferretti debuted their stellar collections for the buyers and the wishers to marvel at.

Could the tankini be the next hottest trend in swimwear? I love the diagonal stripes- so graphic!

I'm not quite sure, but this take on the granny-style tweed could be cute.
Love the color and the asymmetry. The bright shoes are drool-worthy too.

Menswear stripes look fresh when used in this abbreviated style. The floppy hat is always a great resort must-have.

Love, love, LOVE the lattice pattern on this dress! Nude with black is so hot, almost to the point of being conservatively revealing!

Christian Dior

Another asymmetrical dress in a very daring print. Cheetah feels so new and fresh in green!

A paisley, swingy, A-line dress that creates the perfect silhouette.

This look screams Jackie O. Not only is the shift dress punchy and vibrant, but also the petite frame bag and retro shades are to die for!

The sumptuousness of the material on this dress is gorgeous. Silk + bow = feminine knockout.

I love the Elizabeth Taylor glamour of this dress. This is the style equivalent of a lemon meringue pie, creamy and dreamy.

Alberta Ferretti

The white shirt dress has never been hotter or looked so chic. The secret to an amazing piece is fit, clean lines, and just the right amount of sheerness.

Stripes are a classic, yet are modernized when in graduated widths. This is a trendy, surprising twist on an old standby.

Navy is the new, fresh alternative to black. Cinching a loose dress gives it structure, reigning it in while maintaining the flirty, swingy shape.

A very beautiful, shimmery nude in a subtle, yet spectacular metallic. The disk belt is very Grecian and is an accessory in and of itself.

This gown would make a gorgeous wedding dress! The lines are very modern, sleek, lengthening, and flattering.
