A New Twist
Philip Lim has graced us with the most gorgeous chalk white sleeveless dress (forgive the color tone of the photo - it was taken in his studio under unforgiving lighting). The best part of this playful twist on the basic shift dress (no pun intended) is that it's comfortable and durable...I mean, it feels like you could go running in it, though you probably shouldn't because you will look like Britney Spears running from the most recent insane asylum. The dress is made of 80% cotton and 20% rayon - the cotton gives it the comfort and the rayon gives it the wrinkle-free comfort and it falls just above the knee. Pair it with some new Chie Mihara shoes from Deliciouz in Walnut Creek, and you are ready to meet your publisher in New York City (you know who you are!). We also received from Philip Lim a crisp white cotton blouse with the same twist on the front, a sassy Mrs. Robinson-type raincoat in chalk (it's in our window right now) and a denim skirt that makes me think of happy Spring days and wearing sandals.
