This week is all about Alice McCall. Alice is a super cute women’s wear designer from Australia not too many people in New York know about. Pity, because her designs are not only adorable and feminine, I find them interesting, crafty and bursting with vintage inspiration.
Alice sent me this peach silk organza dress from her latest resort collection just a week ago. I love the white felt appliques on the sleeves and skirt. The cut-out at the waste is extremely flattering. Because it’s transparent the dress lends itself really well to “under garment accessorizing”. Whatever you wear underneath will give the dress a different outlook. I’m wearing a 60’s black and white printed bikini from Amarcord on Lafayette Street.
The cream sunglasses are 70’s Gucci, also at Amarcord, and match the cream cuffs and collar of the dress.
The Chloe sandals must be the prettiest shoes I’ve ever seen. The design is very stoic and simple but the beaded ankle strap adds just that bit of chic evening elegance. The toe strap is beige leather, the heel is black suede and the sole is wooden. I bought them on a whim at the store uptown. Something so beautiful just needed to go in my closet.
