Grecian


Dress: Fendi
"B" Belt: Fendi
Alhambra Bracelet: Van Cleef and Arpels
Patent-Leather Sandals: Prada

The Grecian trend is one that has slowly morphed into a permanent classic; designers find it a safe avenue to tread every spring. We've seen the current incarnations--the gladiator sandal/bootie and the asymmetrical shoulder--before, but they've taken an edgier, sexier turn lately. These pieces were purchased quite a while back, but they feel au currant. Of course, it doesn't hurt that they're extremely comfortable, chic, and lightweight--perfect for this unexpected heat wave!

This shot captures the true hue of the dress (it's more of a dove gray; the above shots washed out the color) and the gorgeous draping on the back:

Every woman should own a pair of white sandals for summer. White in summer is the new black! And I don't know about you, but I can't stand really high heels in 90 degree heat--my feet ache more than usual when it's this hot. Today, I took comfort in these low wedges:

I have a beautiful aubergine Fendi dress that's similar to that and I adore it. You look lovely. Unbelievably, it was warmer in NYC than Austin today!

I've been imagining a pair of smashing white shoes since last summer, but haven't found them yet. What a beautiful dress!

love the low wedge. i agree. i resort to wearing flip flops in summer. i know, fashion mortal sin. but it's very comfy.

Lovely & graceful dress!
I will call you Greek Goddess this time, you just need headpiece & armband.

I agree with you about high heels in summer-- it's just not as comfortable for some reason. Summer is all about low heels or gladiator sandals! I love the dress and the whole Grecian vibe... very relaxed and summery indeed!
