Because Phillip Lim is LOVE!
I am a big fan of Black and White which is why I love this 3.1 Phillip Lim embroidered top with black details. It was a dressy top so I paired it with Black Mango skinnies and Red accessories so the outfit pops.
I wore this for a Sunday night dinner + movie at the mall and I was totally feeling so prim and proper in this! It’s such an English High Tea blouse!
My dog, Kahlua decided to pose with me while the photo was being taken. He’s a pomeranian who’s turning a year old on December.
A great trend that I’ve seen trickling down into stores is the collaboration of black and white (which inspired the LACE luxe fashion). Most likely inspired by higher end lines such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and See by Chloé, they’re a fresh alternative to a crisp white blouse and black pencil skirt. The versions that I’ve spotted are adorned with ruffles, pintucking, and other delicate details. The lightweight chiffon top is perfectly balanced by the heavier texture of the denim jeans. Bright accessories give the polished look a playful edge.
I love this crisp and dynamic trio of red, white and black. It’s a classic one but always looks young and fresh. Many designers used it for their collections and I can see why. Neutrals combined with pops of bright red creates unique, distinctive outfits. All shades are used: poppy, tomato, rose red for an attention grabbing modern look.
Philip Lim studied at California State University at Long Beach and has since become widely recognized in the realm of high fashion. Lim’s most recent accolades include winning the CFDA Swarovski Award for emerging talent in women’s wear and being named finalist for the Fashion Design Award of Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. 3.1, which debuted in Fall 2005, is a wearable collection perfect for life in the metropolis. “3.1 is about clothes that refine instead of define women,” Lim said. “It is clothes that make them feel respectful, yet, desirable all at the same time.” 3.1 Philip Lim pieces are classically defiant, easily chic and distinctly feminine. They are beautiful, but never predictable.
