2.01 // Steelers & Draping

Wow, sorry for going on a posting vacation… I fail.

On the bright side, the Steelers pulled an amazing victory in the Superbowl, 27-23 (AZ Cardinals)… with the 100-yd run and epic touchdown in the last quarter… wow. The only football game I’ve actually ever really gotten into, I think.

Now to buy a Terrible Towel… (Yes, I’m a Pittsburgh native.)

Anyway, this is going to be a super short post, sorry… school tomorrow. :(

A pre-post for draping, which is a huge trend on runways and on the streets (as is everything I report on, it seems…) Plus, it’s super-comfy and cute :)

The trick with draping is to layer it… if you’re doing one really drapey, loose piece, try to pair it with more fitted underlayers and bottoms. You could go for the all-out-drape look, but you have to work to pull that one off. ;)

Neutral, layered draping at Haider Ackermann // Spring 2009. If you’re going to do a lot of layered drapes, do it in neutrals!

A few drape styles from Chictopia:

ruffles, tiers, drapes & zips

Note: lots of layers & drapes, but all in black…

Perfect Perfecto.

Hmm, this is actually more layers than drapes. But it’s still cute :)

Drapey dress. (Love her gloves, too…)

Wow, sorry to do such a short post but I really need to get sleep. For once.
