Happy Weekend! So glad it is here! Today, I am featuring the geometric print dress and a talented fashion label from Spain called Bimba & Lola. This is an urban, ready to wear company with strong roots in textiles, and they create apparel and accessories that are distinctive in pattern and quality. Here I am wearing one of their designs. You can see the geometric print better here. But what you can't see is how lovely the fabric feels on and how well it drapes.
A geometric print dress is a fabulous backdrop for pattern mixing, and depending on its scale, can be subtle, as mine is, or quite eye-catching and bold. This spring season has graphic prints trending, so lets not forget its classic sister: the geometric print dress. Another close up of the dress and accessories.
Now are you ready for some good news? My geometric print dress, which retails for about 300USD , was purchased at STA on Broadway for twenty dollars and change. My Jil Sander coat was also purchased second-hand, saving me thousands, literally. My intent is to encourage you to shop in all kinds of places, on-line, and in all kinds of retails stores. Second hand shopping is something I do often, and I love the selection of things available, and the prices.
They also design jewelry and asseccories: Their website is www.bimbaylola.es . You should visit it and be inspired! Please note that I am not affiliated in any way with this brand, I just like to research the brands of the clothes I buy, and thought I would share this with you.
I also want to mention that my bag came from midtown New york, and is made of studded velvet, and trimmed in finely pleated metallic organza. It is made by Sara Design, known for their elegantly beaded silk gowns,and their site is www.hautecouturebylara.com. I paid five humble dollars for this beauty. Lucky me! They have the most gorgeous embroidered shells that are heavily beaded and some of them are pearl encrusted! Did I mention they are on sale now for ten dollars? They could be virtually any price... If you are in NYC, please go! They are at 49 west 37th street, and I found them on my walk to Lord and Taylor! My sunnies are older Dolce and Gabbana, and my necklace was purchased in the wholesale jewelry district, and resembles something Marni did last spring.
I will publish my next post of where to shop for the geometric print dress, and romper, and blouse... It will be up quickly, in about as long as it takes to say "where can I buy the geometric print dress?" !!!
