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.

Love crochet and embroidery for summer! Here in Australia there is quite a bit retail trend focus on music festivals during summer... lots of flat shoes for running and dancing, leather/fringed shoulder bags, feathers, cut off shorts and tops in varying trends including native american, floral prints, rope/crochet/macrame, smocking etc etc. Music festivals are a great style destination!! Great post :)
