I've gotta say...I really really love these overalls Renee has picked out! I love their uniqueness. I love their trendiness. I love how undeniably cool they are. I know how she's playing it in this pic and it's ttly cute. But ssly, these overalls are HOT. Can't you just see them with a mockneck, croptop or black bandeau underneath and FIERCE ankle booties or strappy sandals? Oh yepperses.
I'm not generally a huge, massive fan of prints, but I'm attracted to the simplicity of the one on this coord set Brie is wearing. The white flowers just loosely sprinkled around the black background look gracefully chic, and not at all overdone. The classic color scheme probably has something to do with it, too. But after a few seasons of print on top of print, and so many of them busy, graphic and/or oversized, this has a quality of restraint about it that feels liberating.
Eden called this dress her homage to Madonna, referencing the white lacy lingerie dress of the latter's Like A Virgin video/1984 VMA performance. While the three pieces share the color of innocence, Eden's taste is, as usual, far classier and more chic than many other starlets. Her sheath is flirty and gorgeous with its lace insets, exhibiting a subtle coquettishness, rather than making an overtly racy and somewhat irreverent artistic statement. While Madonna's look worked magnificently as an integral element of her performances, Eden's choice is much more appropriate for the real world. Finishing the look with Eden-like peeptoe pumps or Madonna-esque pointy-toe heels works equally well. Shoes can be so diplomatic ;)
Brie's been rocking some tangerine lately and sister Nikki got in on the act with this melon lace set. As with Brie, this sun-kissed shade looks ahhhmazing on her. The simple lines of the spaghetti straps and pencil skirt work flawlessly with the intricate and beautiful lace pattern. While I tend to prefer same-hued linings under lace, I really love how the nude lining works here. It's so similar enough to the melon shade that it doesn't make the stark and sometimes disconcerting contrast that light linings often can. Tnstead, it adds depth and richness to the surface color. Gold sandals would be my first thought to complete the look, with nude or cream-in-coffee heels being my second.
