Carven Resort 2012

I know, I know, it’s Black Friday but ask me if I care. When my heart beats fast, it beats fast. It’s also typically a tell-tale sign that I should share that which is inducing the palpitative state with you. Because we’re a team, right? And what I love, you love, right again? When a collection celebrates the notion of woman dressing like the little girl she once was, it’s deserves some air time. So lo and behold, a letter to Carven’s resort collection, where the new bow shoes are even bowier than the former bow-shoes.

Dear Carven Resort Collection: if you had genitals, I am most certain I would try to get you drunk and take advantage of you. This would ring true whether the genitals in question resembled those of my own, or those of my counterparts. If the circumstances sympathized with the former option, rest assured, I’d most certainly go gay for you. Yours, Marcel the Shell’s Protege. Happy thanksgiving! Yeah!

    I absolutely love the bows on the back of the shoes! I feel like bows are really in this season. My favorite look is the t-shirt paired with the poufy skirt. It's like couture meets casual!

    It certainly is childlike, but playful. I love it and those bows on the shoes are so interesting. I would love it if you checked out my blog, I have interesting fashion posts you might love to read.

    I love Carven…if there is some space, even a little one, could you please squeeze in my signature? The second outfit from the left in the first row would be more than welcomed in my wardrobe…Happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm having a fashion orgasm !!!! I NEED the preppy pastel shirts, the dresses, the trench and the SHOES ! I'm about to cry right now in realization that my needs don't match with my anorexic wallet. Damn it

    I fell in love with Carven a few months ago while reading Nylon. They have yet to disappoint. I believe the creative director is fairly ne, if I recall. And he's doing a bang up job with the house! Their POV is really something.

    A very cool and colorful collection. Was just laughing out loud at your Marcel reference — my sister and I haven't shut up with "treats n' snoozin, snoozin n' treats" — nothing like parents listening to their 23 and 25 year old daughters reciting that! http://blog.bungalowco.com/

    Love the bows, but I think the really girly details work well on women with fine features. As a round cheeked blonde wasp, if I put on bows I likely look like Miss Umbridge from Harry Potter.
