A Mary Katrantzou Moment

It’s not often that I get really excited about clothing anymore. In high school and early college I had a particular style that I really liked and I would become obsessed with a certain style of jeans or a pair of boots. It brought me joy and confidence to have a style, then, but now everything is more glum. My closet is fine, but nothing speaks to me anymore. It’s just stuff.

So I was surprised as how psyched I got seeing this dress in The Coveteur’s newest article on model Ashley Graham. Is that dress stunning on her or what?! She styles it flirty and sporty and somehow simple. It’s just awesome. (The whole spread is worth a read, by the way. The photos are quirky and she seems so down to earth and in control.)

The article noted the dress was designed by Mary Katrantzou, a Greek designer who specializes in graphic textiles and a name I’ve been seeing a lot of lately on blogs. Scrolling through her website is just cruel; everything is beautiful and so very far away from my budget. But how artful and universally flattering are her designs? Obsession worthy stuff, people.

And it’s funny because I always gave my mom shit for liking enormous prints, but here we are. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Like, if this is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
