Friday Is For Fashion

Images to inspire you over the weekend.

Big Eyelet is taking over – covering skirts, dresses, gowns, blouses and… pants.

I would wear these pants by Alberta Ferretti. Especially on that terrace. Looks like something Betty Draper would have loved to wear back when she was thin.

The fashion world is crazy about mismatching prints right now. It’s so fresh! And new. Except look at this photo of the Talking Heads from 1985. Any one of them would be Sartorialist gold. Topshop is selling these pants right now.

We have two female ensemble pieces of entertainment to look forward to. Whit Stillman is back on the scene with his film Damsels in Distress, starring Greta Gerwig, Carrie MacLemore, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Analeigh Tipton. Stillman’s last film was The Last Days of Disco in 1998, which I highly recommend if you’re the kind of person who enjoys dry wit, Woody Allen movies, social commentary. For me, that’s check, check and check.

Here’s Analeigh Tipton rocking a great velvet blazer, dress, scarf combo:

On Sunday, HBO begins airing the show Girls, written, directed and co-produced by Lena Dunham, most notably of Tiny Furniture fame (if not fortune). I do not have HBO. Balloon juice! But HBO is putting the premiere episode online for free on Monday, April 16 so all us poor suckers can go watch it, fall in love with the characters and then not see them again for a year.

Here’s the poster:

What I find most interesting about this are the shoes Lena is rocking. It’s like laid-back Huarache sandals meet respectable oxfords. Like the way we often hear mullets described as “party in front, business in back.”

I think I would wear these:

Also, I have that rug.

I find myself thinking about Anne Bancroft sometimes. Such an icon.

By the way, that’s skunk-stripe-done-right, ladies.

Well, if you don’t know what else to do with yourself this weekend, slip into your onesie, slap a belt around your middle and work on your rings routine. It will pay off.
