Just when I thought summer's boho-futuristic looks - with its flowing sheer skirts and mermaid colored ombre-hair - was going to tragically bleed into the fall/winter season, along came JAZMEEN. The launch of fashion designer, Jazmin Jackson's line JAZMEEN, promises cleaner silhouettes and a more refined look for the colder seasons. JAZMEEN's Fall 2012 collection steer's clear of the past season's loose grungy looks and reestablishes a very novel idea - dressing like a lady.
The Fall 2012 collection is all about old school nostalgia, bold colors and embracing the female figure. Crayon colored flared pants took the runway with skin tight turtle necks and groovy silk blouses for a sexy retro-working girl vibe. Flirty high-waisted pencil dresses and a charming classic a-lined dress - a la Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face - made a sassy debut for the fall. The collection is timeless, fun, elegant and sensible for the professional girl.
I always find it hard to say good-bye to summer - I tend to get "summer sick" in the dead cold months of winter when it's not as fun to be out and about. Therefore, I am all about making this last month of the official summer season one to remember by enjoying and experiencing all the wonderful events and talent we have in Pittsburgh. I hope this post brings a couple good memories, some fun times, and maybe even introduces you to something new - either way don't forget to slow down for a second and really savor the summer; be it at an outdoor event, sipping drinks with your friends on the porch, listening to great local music, or just enjoying a lazy day by the pool in the last bit of "pool weather" of the year -you know you're going to miss it!
