Is it just me, or do some of the selections from the Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 preview lookbook look like they would work for late winter/early spring, too? Like this petal-ruffled top and skirt. The fuchsia colored top is a glorious color, suitable for weather that’s warming up. And with a skirt the color of purple irises, this model almost looks like a spring flower herself. The look of the cinched, high waist is starting to grow on me. It is a much softer take on the cinched waists of the late 1980s, which were topped with fullback sized shoulder pads in an exaggerated silhouette. While I am totally digging the black stockings and shoes, I think this outfit could work for a spring or early summer wedding, if you were to trade them for strappy sandals.
