You can never go wrong with a dress that has versatility. I personally have a lot of exciting professional-related projects ahead, so by throwing on a this Striped Linen Blazer from ADDISON takes this cutesy casual dress up a notch to business casual, while of course still emulating that sense of downtown chic. … Cool right?

in the spirit of thanksgiving, i give you pocahontas.  thanksgiving is all about the joining of two cultures, native american and native american invaders (oh, snap…whatever).  pocahontas had little to do with the actual holiday itself but she is a solid reminder of it’s meanings.  there are horrible tales of native american assimilation gone wrong and one could argue that the task was never truly completed.  pocahontas was one who fought for a co-existence of the native americans and the new americans.  travelling to england to visit the queen and explore the world beyond the shores, she was a pioneer.  however, contrary to disney’s portrayal, she did not bring her intelligent animal friends along…everybody knows raccoons are not seafaring creatures.  in any event, fashion often accomplishes what pocahontas sought to: succesfully merge 2 cultures.  we saw this in fall 2008 (among other seasons) with the japanese influence showcased by rodarte and particularly in rachel roy’s collection that fused native american and pioneer culture.  of course we see this often, but i thought fall 08 was a fantastic example.  today, pocahontas would have the same burdens as any other politician but lets hope she’d dress herself more like mobama than hilary.1: pocahontas was after all, a princess: dress, gloves and necklace by rachel roy, tights and shoes by ralph lauren2: but still, she was wilderness friendly: cardigan by ralph lauren, dress by tory burch, tights and shoes by marc by marc jacobs3: diplomatic travels: coat, belt and brooch by rachel roy, dress by tory burch, tights and shoes by boy by band of outsiders
happy thanksgiving, y’all.
