“THE PALE PINK CREPE GAUZE DRESS”

Easter

……………………I can’t think of anything more feminine that this PALE PINK DRESS, A276299……I can’t think of a more perfect necklace and earring than the faux PINK QUARTZ set, J329550. There have been 20 reviews so far on this necklace/earring set……and 24 are FIVE STAR. I would say that is a pretty good recommendation!………This is a real Cherry blossom pink…..the color is mesmerizing…..Think of how many places  you can wear this, and how many occasions are coming up that this would be perfect for……….what more can I say……………………………………………………

……………………………………………..enjoy…………………..much Love……………………….Louis

“MET GALA………MY LIST”

OK….here is my list of best dressed [for different reasons], Worst dressed, and just plain DESPERATE:
Best Dressed:

Rosie Huntington-Whitely in a white Ralph Lauren column ****

Claire Dane in a pale blue Zac Posen, old world glam ****

Kendall Jenner a PYT in Versace ****

Kate Hudson, a white Versace. I thought this was the perfect “theme” dress for the occasion without going over the top ****

Gigi Hadid in a smoke grey Tommy Hilfiger [that’s a surprise combination] ***

Amber Valetta in black H&M ***

Emma Watson a PYT in couture ***

Doutzen Kroes, White Balmain **

Worst Dressed:

SJP- Desperate, trying too hard

Madonna- very Desperate

Rita Ora- too short for all those feathers

Julie Macklowe- the tin man

Katy Perry- Desperate

Taylor Swift- trying way too hard, her hair looks fried

The Olsen Twins- throw these girls a life saver. They look like they are drowning in their clothes

Amy Schumer and Alexander Wang for letting her walk the red carpet in his dress, and standing next to her with a big smile, just BAD

Last but not least…..Ms Prada…….I don’t know if she tries to look this bad on purpose, but for a designer to look this bad she should never leave the back rooms.

That’s my take on the Met Gala. I thought all of the SILVER, the color of the evening, cancelled each other out….It basically all looked alike….. It’s a totally different event then when I used to go. Diana Vreeland was in charge not Anna Wintour, and the difference was huge.

 

THE MET GALA

For some fun viewing go to….www.Vogue.com,  and look at what they wore on the Red Carpet………While some looked great….the majority looked EXCESSIVE and overdone….trying to out do each other to the point of DESPERATE…..Who was the best and worst in your opinion?….You can name more then one!

“THE LACE JACKET”

Mrs3

…………………………I am re-posting the lace jacket because it has already been posted on the QVC Linea site, and many of you have already received the new Pale Blue and Yellow. I am guessing it will be on my May 9th, 4:00pm to 6:00pm show with Antonella, but I won’t know for sure until I get my script. For all of the details on the Lace jackets please refer to my previous SNEAK PEEK of the “LACE JACKET” posted on April 14th……………………….enjoy…………….much Love……………………..Louis

“LIGHT TAN & BLACK MOSS CREPE TOP AND GAUCHO PANT”

moss2

……………..I consider these pieces “building blocks ” in a woman’s wardrobe. What are building blocks? They are timeless pieces that a woman can wear year after year, and mix and match with the coordinate pieces or pieces she may already own…..wardrobe extenders. The three styles above are all in my MOSS CREPE. This is a knit fabric I introduced last season with the pull-on skirt shown above, A262454, and a peplum tunic top, which work beautifully with the new pieces…..The reviews of the Moss Crepe jersey knit have all been very positive… I love the WEIGHT and DRAPE of this material…..For me this fabric is the perfect denseness…the PERFECT JERSEY……It isn’t too heavy, nor is it too light. There is no worry of clinging as some too light weight knits do….It’s all about COMFORT and QUALITY……These are the types of clothes no one could possibly guess how much they cost. Due to the quality of the fabric and the “designer” styling and details these clothes in any boutique or high end store would cost much more than they do……….The TOP, A273862, has a scoop neck and 3/4 sleeves……It also has a banded detail. The bottom bands are two different widths which creates a high/ low hem…..This is illustrated in the two bottom photos to the left…..There are also side slits. The bottom of the sleeve also has a wide band to finish it off. This is a detail that I repeated at the hem of the garment and the sleeve for continuity……The xxs is approx. 25 inches in the front….the same length as the Pebble Crepe top. The back is approx. 2 inches longer…..PLEASE NOTICE in the side view photo at the lower right…NO CUPPING!….The GAUCHO PANT is style number A273865, [I really do not like that name, but to avoid confusion…so be it]. The waist band of this “gaucho” pant is exactly like the black and alabaster gauze pant I just presented. It has an area in the front the is flat, and the side fronts and complete back are elastic. The elastic has two rows of top stitching which prevents twisting, but also gives it a nice finish if you want to tuck something in. There are trouser pockets and double pleats which gives the pant a beautiful drape…..These are UNLINED PANTS, and there is absolutely no need for one…This pant will come in xxs through 3x. The xxs inseam is approx 22″. They will not be avail in a petite length……………….I also wanted to illustrate in the photos above how easy it would be to pack for a short trip. You have the same top in two colors and the same pant in two colors to be mixed and matched. I have added the Moss Crepe skirt for a two piece dress look, again to mix or match which will give you a myriad of ways to put it together. The BLACK BARREL BEAD NECKLACE & EARRING SET, J329558 is all you need to accessorize……For shoes I am really liking the lace up looks such as Marc Fisher’s heels A275903, A275626 or his flats, A274278. For some other fun styles that would look great with the gaucho or the skirt are Marc Fisher’s A274290 in the Black and Natural…Sole Society’s  A266315 in Black or ROYAL BLUE [ the Royal Blue with the all black would look fabulous!], A340155 or A339653…..would all be shoes I would select to show with…..Easy care comfortable clothes with lots of PIZAZZ is where it’s at!…………………..enjoy……………..much Love…………………………..Louis

“THE SLATE BLUE MOSS CREPE TOP AND GAUCHO”

moss1

………………………….Cool water and Gray Blue skies are what comes to mind looking at this SLATE BLUE color. I love it mixed with WHITE and SILVER, but it looks equally as good with black or dark charcoal grey making this a 12 month color. There are so many ways to wear these pieces. Above…the white rayon knit bodysuit from seasons passed with the new white gauze jacket….the white textured knit tunic from last year, and white Capri leggings from seasons passed are just a few pieces to mix with the new Slate blue pieces. The white safari shirt and tank or the white pebble crepe top would be two other wonderful pieces to wear with the “gaucho”. I could go on and on  mentioning all of the white pieces many of you own and still wear like all of the white cotton jacquard fabric jackets, the white boho, and the new ivory WK pencil skirt etc. etc……….It’s always fun to get a new piece and work it back to all of the Linea you have collected over the years….making everything new again……………………..enjoy…………………..much Love……………………..Louis
