{spring things}

{3.1 Phillip Lim Citron silk pleated Grecian dress with boned bodice; Mimi Holliday by Damaris lace bra; Jimmy Choo yellow patent leather sandals}

While memories of Valentine's Day still linger, Spring is around the corner and I'm dreaming of canary yellow and the promise of warm breezes . . .

I've been DYING to get my hands on that Phillip Lim dress, I've posted about it at least twice...it consumes my thoughts. I have a feeling those Miu Miu pumps will have the same effect on me...OH NO...I'm obsessed! :)


Everyone could use a little yellow in their home...wardrobe or otherwise.

I LOVE Phillip Lim dresses. This is a great selection! I was never a yellow fan but it appeals more to me now.

That Phillip Lim dress, et. al is very Marilyn Monroe to me. Which is a very good thing, in my book. Glamorous, indeed.

Funny, my yellow grenadine tie is the first one I pull off the rack when Spring hits.

I love the theme of this post! You have inspired me to add more yellow somewhere. That dress is amazing - yellow enhances a tan, too. Love everything about it...am crazy about that Grecian look.

Thanks, everyone, for all the great comments--I can see I'm not the only one whose fallen in love with that Phillip Lim dress.

Joanna, funny you should mention Colour Forecasters--I've also been intrigued by that profession.

Carolina, thanks so much!

Felicity, welcome back--glad you had such a wonderful trip :)

Yup. Ever since Reese Witherspoon wore that yellow dress (paired with scarlet sandals and lipstick) a few years back, canary has been on the rise. I think Kelly W. has been a major booster for the colour and I hope we'll see it trickle down to the more affordable retailers soon. If colour forecasters wanted to be "on it," they'd have had to predict it about 5 years ago...

That being said, I love LOVE this post! Thanks for giving us a jolt of springtime when the ground (at least where I am) is still thick with snow.

And when you're not wearing those Miu Miu shoes, you can set them up on a shelf and just admire them as art!
