Mommy Fashion


I’m always inspired by the fashion shows in NY.  I love design (and clothes, frankly).  One show from the Spring 2011 shows that got a ton of great press was Jil Sander.  As is typical, some looks were more wearable than others.  One that caught my attention was a maxi dress with extreme nautical stripes.  I know maybe one person who could pull this off in everyday life, but stylistically it’s certainly on trend.  The nautical theme is EVERYWHERE right now.  You can even get a ridiculously oversized sand dollar to put on you mantle at Pottery Barn.  Just for fun, here’s a smattering of items I found inspired by that Jil Sander dress for you, your home and family.
