Resorting to Picking Favorites

I pretty clearly remember asking my mom why it was that the Saks catalog in November featured a lot of swimsuits and sundresses and my mom explaining to me that November is the traditional season for some people to go to "resorts". I'm aware of the fact that there are people who travel to warmer places when it gets cold and need a special season of clothing for the occasion, but I don't personally know any of them.

That said, if I was going to take a little winter trip, there were a few collections that caught my eye...

I'm not convinced that I'm cool enough for Vena Cava. But assuming I could suppress my dorkiness and muster up enough confidence, I would love to throw on one of their sweat suits for lounging around a Los Angeles pool. Or maybe throw on a mesh top to go eat sushi in a strip mall on Santa Monica blvd.

Erin Fetherston's collection definitely made me want to take a ladylike trip to Europe (and clearly, the hat is the most essential part). Those lady like dresses were obviously envisioned for eating Tuna Nicoise at a chic hotel while admiring a Mediterranean view. Those pants, however, wouldn't allow you to eat too many.

I'm pretty sure the only occasion I would have to wear Marchesa's resort collection would be if I time traveled back to pre-Castro Cuba. But seriously, what a trip it would be. I love those Ethnic prints, hue bracelets, and head scarves. And the dress below is seriously one of the most beautiful ballgowns I've ever seen. It actually makes tye-die look....elegant.

Also, some of my other favorites: Valentino (via Coco + Kelley), Balenciaga (via because im addicted), Proenza Schouler and Sonya Rykiel (via the Clothes Horse) and Marc Jacobs ( via Sally Jane Vintage).
