SO STOKED FOR TOMORROW//Rodarte at Fashion at the Park

Tomorrow there will be a fashion show for Rodarte Spring 09 at Barneys in Dallas. I've been anticipating this for such a long time-I saw a Rodarte dress in person for the first time ever a few weeks ago and it was LITERALLY breath-taking-I saw the faux-blood soaked dress from last season!


I'm kind of having a fashion crisis though, regarding what to wear. I'm thinking I want to wear vintage, specifically the white lace dress with irridescent sequins I got in Tulsa. It sort of has that fragile beauty that is the essence of Rodarte…shoes and accessories are where the decisions get problematic.

I'll be sure to take pictures! I don't think I'll make it to the trunk show on Thursday, which I'm bummed out about because Laura and Kate Mulleavy are going to be there!!

    Ooh, am very very jealous! I’m trying to picture the dress you plan to wear, and wonder if they’d go with the Dries Van Noten I am currently obsessed in finding? Or is that too much sequins? Otherwise I think they’d look great juxtaposed against the mustards DVN (I may be thinking of the completely wrong dress though, so please forgive me if I’m way off…) Have a blast, can’t wait for your report! :)

    PS. I just realised the dress might be this one: http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t59/seaofshoes/FIX1.jpg (not what I was originally picturing), if so my suggestions are indeed well off! Instead what about the Prada beige/tan peep-toe boots?

    Probably not the best advice but I would skip school to meet the girls of Rodarte(if that is the reason why you are not going). Tell your teachers you are going to see art(which wouldn’t be a lie);)

    Wow, lucky you! The faux-soaked dress was gorgeous, seeing it in person would be awesome… Not even to talk about seeing a rodarte show or having a chance to meet the Mulleavy sisters. I agree with the person who said you should skip school to meet them… If it’s possible.
    The new Rodarte shoes make me drool… Isn’t it awesome how the thin straps are actually electrical wires?
    And I personally would wear some really “tough” shoes with the white dress, for a great contrast (which I feel Rodarte is all about, light and floaty vs dark and rough). Perhaps the Ann D. boots would be too much, but the black Balenciaga booties might be perfect. Or (not sure since you haven’t showed them off) perhaps even the Ungaro “wood heel” shoes?
