I had an entirely different, quite hysterical, medically induced Fashion Friday for today. Then I got an email from Ann Taylor announcing her new spring line.
I’ll be the first to admit, I have not been a huge fan of Ann Taylor as of late. I shopped her new lines regularly for years but then the styles and cuts became inconsistent, at best, and unflattering, at worst. Her latest release I saw hints of genius returning. I bought a stunning long coat inspired by calla lilies. (Think chic Georgia O’Keefe!)
Then this email. The cover photo intrigued me last night, so I clicked on over.
I saw this: CLICK HERE.
What DO YOU SEE???
Go ‘head on.
I’ll give you time.
Imagine the Jeopardy music while I give you time to look for yourself.
That’s right. The first thing you see is all that gorgeous spring green. Green for miles. Green for days.
Now you know my penchant for green.
But these greens are done in gorgeous ways and lovely styles.
Simple greens. Patterned greens. Spring greens! And exactly the right shade of green, as best I can tell from sitting at my computer.
Take this simple fluted sleeve blouse. Perfect for work or weekends.
Or this sophisticated ruffle sleeve “eden green” sheath. It’s got to be Eden green because it’s garden perfect.
And then, this piece de resistance, garden green shirt dress. I don’t even know. This is my Easter dress. (You readers who go to Grace do NOT wear this Easter Sunday – I call dibs!) I have to find an Ann Taylor coupon code. Seriously. I cannot pay full price but I love this dress. Y’all, there’s a bunny on it. And a dog. And a flamingo. Yet it is beautiful.
Now the line is not all green, for you green haters (though do not tell me because I don’t know how we can be friends). But their other lead colors are classic throwbacks which also go beautifully with green. They use a lot of navy. I saw this emergence in their last line. They also use melon which I personally love but realize you have to be careful recommending it because whether this color is flattering is dependent on your skin tone. And then there are blues, inspired peacock patterns, which universally flatter. This halter top and simple dress are among my favorite “others.”
What say you? Love the line or hate it? Have a coupon you’re not using so I can get my dream dress?
