Karen Walker's Perfect Day

Karen Walker definitely one of several designers feeling the sixties this season. One of the things I appreciate most of all about Karen Walker's Spring 2011 Ready-to-wear, is that it is both inspirational and fun yet also accessible and wearable. I also know that it will suit me and will be thoroughly wearable for the many facets of everyday life. Nothing is ever too tight or too revealing (things I often deplore in other designers - I don't want to be a size 2 teenager too be able to wear things). It's got a sense of class, yet also a sense of playfulness - not taking itself to seriously. All of these attributes are things that I greatly appreciate and enjoy in Walker's collections. The immediate attention grabber of the Perfect Day collection was obviously the dramatic, effervescent use of colour. It was naturally love at first sight with the bright marigold skirt. The execution of it in a full, feminine skirt and the fact that it was juxtaposed with grey marle creates a perfect balance and prevents it from being too pretty or overly perky.
P.s. I've noticed some of her outfits look pyjama-ish, don't you think? I would strongly encourage Walker to get into the pyjama game.

could you consider a "whats hot and whats not" section??
that'll be a good read~

But what I find risky about posting "whats hot and whats not" is because its subject to change in 2 weeks to 6 months, and "whats hot" in the southern hemisphere could be particularly "not" in the northern hemisphere.
