I’ve been digging through my old Vogue collection and came across this editorial called “Pretty Woman” from Vogue US January 2004 (photographed by Craig McDean) that I remember really loving!  I distinctly remembered this shot of Daria Werbowy in a beautifully delicate silky printed pleated Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière dress with this incredibly sharp neoprene Day-Glo neon yellow bra.  I looooved the juxtaposition of the soft silk with the spongy sporty material and the pairing of the creamy pink colour with the bold neon (something we have been seeing a LOT of in the past few years)!

I tried to dig up some soft, flowy shirtdress ideas that could be paired with a line of bras I’ve been eyeing for years by VPL!  Would be fun for spring/summer!

    • Thanks for your comment! Me too, I like how the gauzy dress kind of looks torn away to reveal this neon neoprene armour! hehehe neon sure came back strong hey?

    these bras are fantastic! Love the neon color one!

    • I love how super comfy they look, and definitely not your average “run-of-the-mill” sports bra! Mine don’t look this fashionable!

    Wow! I could definitely live in those. They are so chic and look so comfortable!

    • I completely agree, Tatiana! Wouldn’t it be a fun way to add some edge and colour to a comfy summer shirtdress? Thanks for your comment!
