A lighter touch for S/S '10:
Gasp after gasp of delight...
Soft origami folds,
A lighter palette;
Dresses and coats:
Yes yes I said yes!
On some looks, puzzling fabric between the legs
Like a saggy diaper: no no no!

Read this informative post on Chic in the Tropics about how you can help victims of the crazy destructive typhoon that blew over the Philippines and parts of Vietnam recently. (Parenthetical rant: Lately, I've been bemoaning my corporate dayjob, feeling too paralyzed or scared to make a leap into a career change and yes... feeling sorry for myself. But having my eyes open to unfortunate disasters like this one, snaps the perspective back into me. I can see how fortunate I am... and how everything is but a small blip in the grander scheme of things. I feel empowered, ready to take on the challenges ahead. We are all fortunate in our own ways... )
Be well, friends...
