Drop It Like It’s Hot!

Don’t be a turkey! Get on board with the trend… Waists are being lowered to hip height for Spring 2009 – so flaunt your womanly figure with a drop-waist dress or a hip-slung belt!

I like the low waist in dresses, like at the 20's.
But I don't like it on pants.

Very nice pieces you show us, beauty.

Those designers are determined to foist the 20s on us seeing as they've raided most other decades - oh well it'll be fun!

Susanna-Cole said...

Oh I love low waists, much better than I do high! And some of my favorite dresses (like one I wore to prom) and another one I wear almost all summer have dropped waists! :) Fantastic post as always! <3

Here is a trend that looks back on the twenties.

Fashion, how can we ever get bored!
The song- 'Drop' is so appropriate for this so witty!

Seriously, I freakin' love your blog! It's full of color and it's just pops. Wish I could say the same thing for mine. Can't wait to read and see more posts.

i really enjoyed this entry. even though i do adore the nipped in waist look, seeing these drop waisted options is very refreshing. and very hippie-ish if i might add.

Tartelette said...
