My new silhouette

Courtesy of American Vogue

I have been an a-line (tent) dress girl forever and completely ignoring my waist. However, the above image has been sitting on my desktop for ages and it has inspired a new look for me. The trim top and softer skirt is really appealing and fresh. Certainly a welcome change from my often shapeless shifts.

Valentino Spring

It’s an easy look- just zip it up and add great sandals.

  • This is the only way I do dresses. It just works for me. Shapeless shifts are so not for me.

  • I know the girl in your picture! Priya is one of the most stylish women in Mumbai, and if you make it to India, you must check out her store Bombay Electric. It’s gorgeous!
    So great to see ladylike looks coming back.

  • I love those looks, usually I go for sheath style dresses and pencil skirts but lately I am loving the full skirts, so Audrey.
