I'm opinionated about certain things. I'd like to share 2 with you today. Normally I'd like to make it 3 because odd numbers are better than even numbers. Hmm - maybe that can be my third opinion.
2. Exposed zippers. It hasn't grown on me. I remember seeing it for the first time on Project Runway and hated it then. I still do. I'm sure I'm probably the only one that does - but I do. I don't care if a famous designer at Lanvin did it first. It looks like a mistake and completely interrupts the design. Maybe that was the point. I just don't think many people can pull it off. But let's face it - how many runway fashions can be pulled off - off the runway?
At any rate - because there are some that pull it off beautifully - here's my rule.
It cannot interrupt the design.
It cannot look like you didn't know how to do it and left it in wrong.
You must not use an exposed zipper in a waistband. I don't want my eye drawn to your nether regions.
3. Lists are better in odd numbers.
Thank you for your consideration of the above. Please, no hate mail.
