I also did some great snoop shopping at Neiman Marcus Last Call after doing the Expo on Thursday. They had just gotten a shipment of uber expensive designer pieces with great lines and details. And one of the associates was a fellow sewer who was arranging the new pieces while we discussed the details and I tried them on. I didn't see anything I felt like trying on so no photos - but I did buy two vests with unique details that I can really work into my spring coordinates. Here is one of them.
This long striped vest (or sleeveless jacket) is by Piazza Sempione. It is stretch cotton, unlined with every seam or hem trimmed with a fine cotton Hong Kong finish. It's from the Spring 2012 line and the style (not the same stripe) is shown with a long blouse and skirt in this runway photo from NY Magazine. I knew I had these 4-ply silk pants in a warm sienna brown that would coordinate and lots of white linen and a couple white dresses it will look great over. I love easy neutrals for spring/summer. Doesn't the long blouse look like the Artist in Motion top?
