Brace yourselves…the spring campaign was released today for the muse of my world…Isabel Marant. But wait, it gets better! It features my other muse of the world…the one and only, Arizona. Talk about a double whammy of fashion intoxication. The campaign is full of color, sun, the looks of a vintage Chevy cruising down the sun-kissed avenues while Arizona soaks it all in. Aside from wanting everything and I mean everything from the spring collection, we all know that this is not a realistic option. If I had to pick and choose, the jacket, the pants and of course some sneakers to relieve my feet from the torture of the heels on a bike.* Let’s also not forget that anything printed in the pantalons department has me skipping down the sidewalks these days. Inez + Vindooh shot the masterpiece and need to add this one to their list of greats.
And how about my other favorite? The Arizona! Rumor has it she lives in my neighborhood….aside from geographical influence, can we just talk about the other ones? I loved her sporting the J.Crew campaign a few months back. If she can pull off a preppy look, there might be hope for me. Small steps kids. Or how about the Saturday after the two weeks from hell when I whipped out the Self Service magazine and told Peter, “Cut it all off. All of it! I want it choppy. I want the Arizona!” And there went 8 1/2″ inches to the floor. It was liberating.
So there it is friends, two of the muses that keep me going. They make you feel young, independent, pretty…and stylish all at the same time. While some fancy an evening gown, Isabel shows us that looking her French fantastical looks just as glam in a tye-dye embellished jacket. My little paws are going to be all over that little number! Again, cost per wear, compliment per wear, it’s all going to be very economical with a quick dinner outing and a Sunday stroll to the vegetable stand at Whole Foods.
And with that, I am off to crack open the piggy bank and call my sources for that jacket.
*bike riding saves money…and it trims your waist to be able to fit a la Marant.
