While the weather outside is getting colder, here in the Pacific Northwest, the ladies of Flutter are hunting and gathering all kinds of amazing vintage clothing and treasures for the Spring season! The new collection will be archived and in the shop by early February. Stay tuned for more info for our blog readers, you heard it here first! To make room for all of the Spring goodies, everything in the shop is 20% off, including all books, toys, vintage clothing, and jewelry by Paper Treasure, SeaWorthy, Urchin and Brehan Todd.
Meanwhile, Iv’e been preparing for my own jewelry collection for Spring, adding bright beads and shells to my inventory, watching films, looking at a lot of images, compiling my inspiration. Now that Spring is solidified, I’m on to Fall 2011, which I’m so excited about!
I would love to share some of my favorite looks from the runway, that I found inspiring this season. Many of the looks seem as though they could have been styled by Flutter! There was an explosion of color and feminine silhouettes on the runway from so many designers. The fabrications were combined in interesting mixes of florals and geometrics. The perfect pants and the long flowy dress seem to be the staples the to have for the season. Here is a look at some ready to wear designs that channel the 60’s again, with an extra burst of color, this time around.
|Anna Sui Crochet Rainbow and Denim|
D & G combined classic, casual sexy with a twist of cuteness, mixing florals, gingham and stripes.
Marc Jacobs was all glam feathers, sparkle, dramatic makeup and bold jewel tones.
One of my favorite designers of all time, Alberta Ferretti makes chiffon look like it’s infused with clouds.
Anna Sui, who often references the 1960’s fashion styles has a creative interpretation this season.
Come in to Flutter and let one of the stylists help you put your runway look together from our amazing selection of vintage and handmade clothing and accessories.
