Sweet and bright

orange dress Riri Nini, who designs for h.m.a.e.m, is known for her eccentric couture. But she also does minimal, clean-lined items— like the new Gaia dress—which recall the mod 1960s. This short strapless dress combines two simple shapes and punctuates them with symmetrical portholes. Some of the dresses are tone-on-tone, as in the orange version pictured here, and in the black and grey variations. Adventurous customers can opt for a shocking combo of marine blue and acid green, while shy girls can choose a subtle pairing of dove grey and rose. One of my rules as a blogger is that I am not allowed to wear anything I haven’t blogged. I broke that rule for Gaia and pranced around in one version after another on the pretense that I need to do more road-testing. For you, dear reader, for you.

gaia by riri My second last-minute Hair Fair recommendation is Milana’s Mint, an array of improbable curls (with a couple of flexi bits that bounce and make me giggle). Be sure to blow this pic up to see the beautiful speckles on Eclectica’s octopus necklace and the Free Bird nails patterned after the top of a pristine pencil. In order to see the large version of a pic, one has to click on it and then scroll down and select the original size. This is a major drawback of the Bushwick theme imho.
