“Fashion is so often presented in the culture as a thing of froth, which, of course, it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with care and a sense of values.” - Anna Wintour

Sister and Brother
I'm not usually overly excited about celebrity labels, and The Row by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is no exception. However, a dress from their younger line, Elizabeth and James, has caught my eye:
I saw this silk dress in Holt Renfrew, and it features laser cut holes, which were what drew me towards the dress in the first place. The detailing comes not from embellishment or prints, but from tiny holes. By literally removing pieces of the dress, you end up getting more out of it.
With a wide collar, kimono sleeves, a delicate strap framing the cowl back, and a button closure at the waist that subtly gathers the fabric, this is one easy breezy summer dress that goes heavy on the style quotient.
