I bet you're really glad you know all that now.
But, there's a point, and the point is that these ads actually proved useful to me the other day. I know! Very exciting. One of the ads was for Karen Millen's US website. Karen Millen is a UK-based company I first became aware of in the summer of 2009, when I spent a month at a program in Oxford. The dresses in the store were beautiful, with bright jewel tones all over the place, just brightening up my day every time I walked past the store, even if it was raining (which it did, a lot.). I ended up leaving the country with a beautiful purple dress that I sometimes take out just to admire.
Thusly reminded by the wiles of the internet, I checked out the website. On my most recent click, I was greeted by this image.
DO YOU NOT DIE FOR ALL THE COLORS? Seriously, how chic is that bag, and that dress is so effortlessly cool I don't know what to do with myself. And who does not like like to be greeted with news of a sale?
That skirt is on sale for $45! I know! Save that sucker up for next fall!
I love the clean lines of these dresses, it makes them so classic. I can just envision myself standing by a pool somewhere in the first one, wearing a large hat and carrying a perfect clutch. And, as we all know, color blocking is what it's all about this spring (really, though, it's what my life is about). Really, there's just a bevy of beautiful things to admire and contemplate purchasing. Head on over there to check it out! I know I'll be clicking the hours away as I look for endless ways to procrastinate :)
Fashion Fridays looks like it's going to be sticking around, so thanks to Kori at Blonde Episodes for facilitating it!
