shirtdress and such inspirations.

white russian
isn't this just a brilliant idea? i never thought of wearing a shirt dress under a skirt AND just letting the shirtdress flow out through the bottom. love it love it love it and will definitley be trying this one out soon.

another way to layer with a shirtdress is to wear it under a v-neck dress or shirt with a cute a-line skirt.

you could also wear it under a shirt with a cute square neckline, too bad that stores rarely sell sequined shirts like this above.
as seen on the runways- play it safe like chloé or be bold and go dangerously short like louis vuitton.
make things more interesting by wearing a clenching waist belt- a wide elastic one would do well.

the mix of blue/grey denim and white-almost cream-colored shirt makes a very good combination, as seen on jeremy lang
pair a white shirt off with a dark colored jacket/cardigan, and loose fitting grey shorts.
i just looked through some new chloé and am happy to announce that they have indeed, finally moved out of their "comfort zone"-aka baby doll dresses. paolo melim andersson, fresh out of my other love, marni, has become their new designer and i am loving what i am seeing so far. even though the whole collection did tend to have some marni-esque pieces, they are just soo pretty to look at and you can't help but be obsessed- and that's what chloé is all about, right?

why does chloé always have to torture you with really really really pretty shoes?

Aaah I'm drooling over here! And so stupid that I hadn't think of wearing a shirtdress onder a skirt before! Love the shoes in the first foto, looking for something similair.

Oh and thanks for the tip you gave for the blue trousers. I'll be searching for something (light) yellow. Would be a great colorcombination this spring I think :).

Wearing a shirtdress under a skirt is a great idea! I love the orange used in Chloé dresses.

I loved the Natalia editorial in Vogue, the way they did the white shirts seemed so interesting. Especially the one paired with the Prada mini, its the only time I've ever actually seen those work.
Plus, maybe its just me, but those shoes in that picture seemed absolutely amazing.

The embellishment ans sixties-esque patterns are still quite chloe, but I love the new direction, it seems so much more daring.

I love the first idea for the shirtdress. Esp in this editorial, love the way that the dark satin red contrasts wiht the crisp white of the shirt.

As for pairing with the v necks,-very stella mcC and romantic, Like it!

Great post, and I absolutely love the new masthead-its so original! Where is the image from?

Wow, long comment!

I just did a post on Chloé too! I love the slightly edgy flare they have this season. Tougher, but still retaining that essential Chloé-ness.

when i first thought of shirtdresses i was like "ew." but then when you think about it, there are gorgeous dresses, all from the silhouette of a shirt. amazing.

That top picture (white russian) is very reminiscent of the Sharon Stone Oscar outfit. Slightly shorter hemline though ;)
