Maria Grazia Chiuri- The First Lady of Dior

_DIO0935.jpg

Fashion folks and feminists rejoice! This past week in Paris during fashion week history was made: Dior appointed Maria Grazia Chiuri as their first ever female creative director. Chiuri is no rookie when comes to major fashion houses– she left Valentino to come to Dior, and before that Raf Simmons. With only six weeks to prepare this collection, it has been met with some criticism, particularly about how it seems ‘very Valentino.’ Cut the woman some slack! It’s hard to come up with a whole new design aesthetic when you’ve only got a month and a half to produce a 64 piece collection. I don’t think it is fair to judge her completely on her first collection with Dior, but on what her next show will behold come spring. None-the-less, the spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection was beautiful. See all the Looks here.

Blog Lovin X H&M

Wide-leg, pleated, cropped pants paired with a printed Bardot styled top is my favorite go-to for the summer. Thus, I paired it with my favorite H&M top from last spring. I also wanted to give this outfit a sporty-chic vibe with the Adidas original superstar sneakers. I love hows the black and white stripes balance the tomato colored pants yet hint at the black and white print of my top. Western is also a very cool trend for this summer. So I wanted to tie this outfit all together with a western vibe styled belt. I highlight my look with a splash of gold in my jewelry and sunglasses. With the raving popularity of Adidas originals, I thought juxtaposing the sneakers with the premium look of this outfit would make it very unique.
