From what I’ve seen come down the catwalk, come Spring we will all be wearing (or avoiding) high-low hems, pleated maxi skirts and palazzo pants, romantic sheer blouses (but perhaps not sheer enough to expose our lingerie, as was shown), and tailored shorts. But the high fashion isn’t just on the runway at BFW 2012. I’ve spotted super-chic attendees in colored denim, one shoulder embellished tunics, faux and genuine fur vests and short jackets, at least one fascinator, and amazing footwear: booties, glam platforms, and of course, a Louboutin (or ten).
Who was the most fashionable? There were SO many to choose from, but I just had to talk to the very chic Miss Cates Lyman, age 6, who attended Birmingham Fashion Week’s Friday shows with her mother, Elisabeth Lyman.
Who picked out your outfit? My mama. [smiles]
Why do you like it? “Because my mama has a matching one…and because it has pockets!”
What’s your favorite color? “Pink. It’s a happy color!”
What do you want to be when you grow up? “A movie star!”
Is this your first fashion show? “No ma’am. I’ve been in one. This is my third,” she informed me.
Cates’ mother provided additional details regarding her outfit: the Milly multicolored striped mini dress is from Village Sportwear, and was purchased so they could match on Palm Sunday. The silver sequined vest is from SNAP KIDS apparel in Crestline Village; Cates’ red tights are from Target, and her red leather, buckled Mary Janes are from Christine’s in Mountain Brook Village.
