Emilio Pucci Resort 2014

Peter Dundas introduced his new collection to the world on June 12, 2013. Inspired for the wandering women, traveling the world with an effortless air about her. She's free and she's taking the world by storm. One place in particular on her agenda is the beach. This collection is oozing with a balance of lightweight summer essentials and high end fabrics, layers, and bright pops of color. These pieces are meant to be small and easily paired together. The designs, patterns, and line work do all the work for you. And how about those sandals? 

I'll be real with you for a minute. I"m not a fan of sandals but these babies are triggering my current mood for change. The heel version is right up my alley. Heels all day every please. I don't know about you but I'm DROOLING over the skirts you see below. They are absolute perfection. The fringe! The color! The high side rise! The high waist! Yes I'm singing right now. Down payment for a car or an Emilio Pucci Resort 2014 skirt? The real struggles in life. 
Still drooling by the way. The tomboy inside of me loves the idea of strolling around in skimpy little swim bottoms and an overly baggy top. Although as cool as the flat sandals look here I hope you all know I'd reach for the alternative heel. Also, can we talk about the accessories for a hot minute? Big watches + big wrist bands = instant win. Boy accents meets "yeah I can rock these bikini bottoms." I'm ok with everything thats happening here.

<----- What in the world. My jaw literally dropped when I saw this piece. I NEED IT. Sorry car down payment. This is just too good to say no to. Lets just start counting the ways shall we? 1- top that resembles a bikini top that not only hugs the ribs beautifully but also accentuates collar bones. You can NEVER go wrong with collar bones. 2- That pattern and color... if you think its over the top, we can't be friends. 3- The high waisted skirt and an exposed midriff. I might die. Its all the best things! Simple, elegant, uncontrived, and unique. 

Notice the big watch? Thats right friends. Keep your bulky accessories rolling even when you're wearing the longest dress you've ever owned. 

Well hey there you babe. This beach goddess and elegant lady we've encountered has stunned us all with her bright and colorful ensemble that somehow feels like she might be into the 90's, loves rock and roll, and might be dating far too many musicians. 

She'll keep you on your toes and you'll never be able to keep her in one place for too long. There are too many places to explore and the world really needs to see these pants. Any girl who's comfortable rocking those beauties is a keeper in my book. Daring yet still so simple and comfortable. 

I'm really really hoping the blue and black crop top is a tank. If so, I'll definitely be purchasing that too. The jacket seems to have a velvet aspect to it and the way the hem of the jacket meets the high waisted pants creates a "legs for days" look and a flattering midriff. SO GOOD.

Last but not least, those heels. Just when I thought I was done drooling those babies had to tug at my heart strings. They are perfect. They expose all the right places, accentuate the arch, and the mixture of matte black and a pop of seafoam makes me long for a long day at the beach followed by a fancy dinner where I can rock these beauties with my new sun kissed skin. 
I don't know about you but I need a little more Emilio Pucci in my life. 
And heck, I might just become The Wandering Woman.

Stay UGLY you babes.
Oh hey Christoph. For real though, thank you Prada. Thank you. 

Normally I serve you a dose of fashion every friday but I think doing an occasional "Hottie Shout Out" is necessary for us fashion addicts. Alas, welcome to a new category of Fashion Drunk posts. Aesthetically pleasing people rocking threads from our favorite and most inspirational fashion brands. Prada never ceases to amaze and deliver but add Christoph Waltz to the mix and magic happens. Is it Fall yet? Ladies, as much as we love our men in t-shirts, jeans, and rocking killer beards, you all know you can't wait for that chill in the air that is the undeniable sign your man will start dressing in layers. We're talking sweaters, blazers, and Prada suits. Okay okay, maybe not Prada suits. But we would totally be ok with it. 

Christoph, thanks for the oh-so-serious Vogue faces. 

First of all, I have a really good reason for this article being a few hours late. I was too busy drooling all over my keyboard at the sight of 1- unapologetic curve hugging swimmies that scream "Tell me about it... stud," and 2- Ashley Green. Enough said right? Holy moses. If she wasn't on your girl crush list already then she definitely just made your top 5.

Lets get down to business. Since the beginning of time (yes, the beginning of time) a high waisted bottom paired with a bra-esque top has deemed itself classic and retro. How can you possibly go wrong with a printed two piece that is reminiscent of days long past where summer nights were spent on the beach with a campfire, your parents mustang, a fire pit, loud music, and a six pack. Sure these events still occur today but it just isn't the same. Its rare that you walk the beach these days and find a classic, elegant woman such as what you see here roaming the sand. Its unfortunate really. And don't get it twisted, I'm not saying you need to style your hair glamour style and rock a red lip at the beach by any means. But maybe drink a glass of class before you leave the house. 

<--- Black. The ultimate indulgence. The effortless ensemble. Am I right? This particular suit is amazing for making your legs look longer and leaner. Won't lie, I'm not 100% crazy about the top but hey it looks comfortable and thats always nice too.

Now if you're anything like me, you LOVE to get all done up for the pool. You will more likely than not see me rocking a bright lip, big shades, and plenty of accessories with my rentro swimmie. I can't help myself ok? Just let me run with this. 

I've been in love with navy suits for as long as I can remember. There is something so calm yet romantic about a darling little navy number. Not to mention it makes me weak in the knees. If these two images ---------------------> aren't inspiring for this trend, I don't know what is. Have you encountered better bug-eye sunglasses in your entire life? Swooning over here my friends. 

Now breathe please. I know these last two images are literally jaw dropping but I'm going to need you to hold it together for a second here. Prints?? Metallics?? Holy I've died and gone to swimmie-fashion-beach-summer heaven. Wherever this cardigan meets retro bikini look came from, we thank you with full hearts. Normally I'm hopelessly infatuated with grunge trends and boy clothes but this whole "innocent yet hot girl-next-door" summer vibe is totally pulling at my heart strings. In other words, even though I roam in the scorching desert I fully plan on purchasing a cardigan to throw over my retro bikini. Fake it 'til you make it ladies.
