Shape Shifter

Now this is a geometry class that CC could pass! Cubes, triangles, diamonds, hexagons and rectangles make for the kindest cut of all!

Patterns are amazingly powerful CC. The Hervé Léger dress is absolutely stunning. I love the McQ intarsia cardigan and the Chanel couture gown. I am getting a mod feel from a lot of these looks *pulls out picture of Twiggy"

Sorry if this posts twice but anyhoo, loving that Anna Sui dress, the perfect palette for spring/summer, w/gladiator sandals no doubt. And that LAMB bag really speaks to me for some reason. It's unusual...but business like at the same time.
