New Look Summer 2012

30 May

After the snooze fest that was Simplity’s Summer 2012 pattern line up, I wasn’t expecting much from it sister company, New Look.  But I was pleasantly surprised.  First up

New Look 6120

A simple, yet chic dress from the Project Runway Workroom collection.  What’s different between the Workroom collection from New Look and the Project Runway collection from Simplicity?  I have no idea.  I guess the parent company just wanted to cash in on the popularity of Project Runway (since Simplicity and New Look are both owned by the same company).   I have to say I like the packaging of the Workroom collection more though.  It’s easier to see the design and looks modern and fresh.

Mix and match patterns are great, aren’t they?  I always feel like you get a good bang for your buck when you buy one of these.  I can see this dress being made into lingerie, a casual summer dress, or even a fancy evening gown (if you made it out of luscious silk jersey).  Talk about versatile!

What can I say about this one?  I just like it.  Frilly sleeves and all.  This is probably one of those “hit or miss” patterns for people.

I love the peplum top!  It’s very “on trend” right now, but I think it is also very work appropriate.  I’m always looking for decent outfits to wear to my casual/business casual office that’s not soo generic.  You know what I mean?
