I LOVE it when designers team up with stores to create a lower price point line for us regular folk-in fact it makes me downright giddy. Missoni for Target was a dream come true, and when I caught a glimpse of the Giambattista Valli for Macy’s line I think I peed my pants a little. I’ve scoured runway books and studied fashion obediently since I first started out in this industry and with the flux in popularity of color this year (its always popular in my closet), G Valli is one designer I have had my eye on. So, of course, I had to pick up a few things. And perhaps one of my favorite fall purchases, is this divine skirt made out of tiny chiffon flower petals. In fact I love it so much, I have a hard time wearing it because I’m always waiting for the “perfect” occasion .
As I am sure you can tell by the tree and decor, I finally decided the first time I would wear my pretty frock was for Christmas Eve, which seems fitting because it also just happens to be my favorite day of the year.
