summer loving: crochet embroidery
I just about died when I saw this shot by Newton from Coachella. I mean, how perfectly-cool is this embroidered dress? (Might have something to do with that killer bod, too, though...) I just love how glamorous it is without being the slightest bit unapproachable or fussy. Paired with a simple bodysuit/bathing suit and sandals, beachy hair and a cross-body bag, this girl is pretty much ready for absolutely anything.
Crochet and embroidery always screams high summer, and this year no different. I love how these looks are more polished than the usual summers-old pieces we often see... they remind me of more elegant lace looks, with the red top below feeling especially Erdem-inspired. I'm feeling thrifting calling my name...
On another note, I can't help but feel that these music festivals are the most oft-overlooked and most-important-to-look-to events for retailers. The trend stories these girls are sporting are different, fun, and somehow totally commercial without feeling like it.
