Garden Party

When I first think of a Garden Party... my mind leads me to the tales of Alice in Wonderland...

You're invited to the 'Garden Party' of the year. When browsing for inspiration... I came across the 2011 Resort Collections. I couldn't help but notice a popular theme within some of the collections. Stella McCartney and Kenzo designed beautiful resort-wear with a modern twist on the traditional floral print. They made their clothes look like they had just walked out of a glamourous tea party, so fabulous that only the Mad Hatter could have hosted such an event. While, I know it is only October and it is a bit early to think of what to wear for the spring season, I believe everyone should add a touch of tea party to their winter wardrobe- whether its a ring, gloves or even a broche. 
Its never too early to prep for this upcoming party.

Even Betty Draper, from Mad Men, is sporting the Garden Party trend.
