    All the hours spent choosing the sleeve-length, colours, neckline, pleats-or-no-pleats are thoroughly worth it!

    MIDI - The New Length


    - Images from Net-a-porter -

    Personally, I have always steered clear from the midi length. Whenever I go through my mom's closet to comb through her vintage stuff, I always think the midi skirt looks old-fashioned and you know... kinda frumpy.

    I remember the micro mini trend just seasons back. The shorter the better! Then last season it was all about the maxi. Floorlength-swishing dresses and skirts! This time, it seems a compromise has been reached. The midi is rocking every runway!

    These mid-calf pieces conservatively hides the knees while flaunting the ankles and of course - our precious footwear! Watch out for the midi trend this season!

    Mary Katrantzou S2011


    Image Source:

    I saw this collection a while back and ever since, the images and dresses are stuck in my head. In this collection, Mary Katrantzou (she's Greek!) was inspired by 70's photography of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin. She cleverly uses the interior of homes as the subject of her dresses. Digital prints are artistically matched without compromising the details on the picture. I especially love when she plays with the third dimension and uses soft chiffons as curtains, necklaces as chandeliers and tassels as water.
    I would lovvee to own one of these masterpieces. Although, I would probably not wear it, instead hang it on my wall.. and stare..
