Kate Michalowski for Second City Style Magazine
I know you have heard by now that Spring 2011 is all about a 70’s reincarnation, and let me tell you – I could not be happier. All winter long I was into sharp lines, sparkle, leather, tough accents and black, black, and more black. Then as soon as there was any indication that I might eventually be reunited with my old friend the sun, Joni Mitchell has been playing nonstop in my mind, and I have turned into a full-on flower child ready to trade in my skinnies for some ultra-flares. The Bohemian thing has been rearing its beautiful head for a few years now, but this year’s translation has to be my favorite thus far. Each of these pieces dream up the romantic scenes of outdoor music festivals, Chicago’s movies and concerts in the park, and that sweet scent of warmer weather.
I have had an affinity for crochet for as long as I can remember, and this sweet vest just really hits the mark for me. I would wear it over a flowy white dress as pictured or more simply with a slim white tank and high-waisted flares.
