I conjure thoughts of sunflower print tees, furry backpack purses, ridiculous floppy hats, and wafts of teen spirit. The stench of nostalgia is bittersweet, but the hint is so delicate it doesn't overwhelm. My verdict? This spring, when the temperatures are just barely 50 and you can't wait to pull out your pastels, the knee-high and thigh-high are the perfect transition for Seattle. Bare those pasty-pasty thighs with confidence, trail-blazing, and gusto! And don't get all defensive when I hum a Cranberrys song behind you.
Happy shopping, darlings!

The suit above is much more charismatic in person - what you can't see from the picture is that the fine tweed incorporates lime, lemon, and black to make a cutie-pie spring jacket and dress. I can easily see the jacket alone with a black pencil skirt and mock-neck sweater - darling! One of the other pieces I predict will sell out instantly is a silk dress with a feather print on it. It's an A-line shape with a Christopher Kane-eque belt and a cheeky little ruffle at the bottom.
There's also this neato little preview Nordstrom did that echoes a certain Charlie's Angels dance...
Happy shopping darlings!
