The lace dress is a classic. It's cute, flowing, and very feminine. But for this year, that's why I'm saying it's out. To me lace always channels this vintage look, and I'm going to another decade this spring. Try crochet looks. It's like lace, saying girly, carefree, and still cute! Crochet dresses work for more occasions - sport a sweetheart crochet dress with a colorful cardi and accessory to your cook out or throw it over a swimsuit to run around. Too versatile.
Le Fete du Courant this past Friday night marked the launch of my school's 2012 winter issue of the art magazine. There were mocktails, poetry readings, music, and a lot of peeved stares from the museum curators at the Addison that were on duty. Understandably, they were not too fond of a gaggle of teenagers running around in fancy clothes and heels, with professional cameras taking pictures of each other, instead of appreciating the collection. We were there for the poetry and music of featured Courant artists, however, most of us could not even get into the show room because it was "over capacity." Ultimately, we wandered the galleries and took it as an opportune night to play dress up. I called it in early out of boredom and gross weather, but here are some lovely pictures.
