Silk Screen

Mmmmm silk. There's nothing quite like the feeling of silk against your skin. I think that in the heat of this South Florida 'fall' a little bit of cool, liquidy, mercurial fabric is perfect to tone down the humidity woes. The silk tee hasn't been on my fashion radar at all this year, but now I think about it, it is just the kind of item that I would love - classic practically with just a hint of shameless luxury.

The pairings would be endless, and even better, it would move seamlessly from day to night and from summer to winter. It would look great tucked in or out with the harem pants and gladiator sandals. It would look fabulous loosely tucked into a form-fitting jersey long skirt. It could be paired in and out with jeans, any kind of jacket, and would go that extra step than a tee shirt to make the outfit chic and cool.

I'm a firm believer in the whole surround yourself with the good things in life as much as you possibly can, practical hedonism in a way. Good food, good wine, the literature and art (posters/postcards), films and theatre experiences that tickle your tastebuds. Clothes are merely another aspect of this practical hedonism, and if you can't afford to have beautiful glamorous things all the time have lovely things most of the time.
