Isaac Mizrahi's resort collection had a very old-fashioned feeling about it without feeling too much like a costume. This look was perhaps the one that felt the most "dated" but I can't help loving it. Its sort of weird that he can make a skirt with such volume seem so casual and fresh and the silhouette reminds me of a ballerina, and that just always wins my heart.
I love a semi-sheer dress ok? I don't really have any in my closet, but I just think they are cool. Especially when you pair them with a flower print bikini underneath. It's pure sex without looking slutty. Seriously, Thakoon is genius.
I will tell you the real story of why I absolutely love this dress. Six years ago, when I still had dreams of becoming a fashion designer, I designed a collection around that triangular-looking pleat detail in contrasting fabric. I still think it looks really cool, and I love that he used a sparkly black fabric to give it a little sass. If I had the opportunity, I would definitely want this dress in my closet; because it's really cool and because it made me feel like maybe my ideas are worth something.
