A Luminous Summer, Part 1

Shopbop's "Moment of Grace" Lookbook
A FEW TIMES PER YEAR, I select a different term that inspires my fashion spirit for that particular season.  Funny though it may sound, these terms help when I have to dress for particular events and occasions.  For example, in Autumn ‘08 I drew constant inspiration from Mommie Dearest and all things Joan Crawford.  I wore oodles of silky tops, high-waist pants and skirts, pearls, and neutral colors.  I wore Chance by Chanel. 

This summer is no different.  Over the past month, I've been drawn to golden makeup and radiant accessories.  So, I've decided that my Summer '11 will be luminous.  Shopbop ( gives us an interpretation in their “Moments of Grace” lookbook.

One of Wear It Out's models, DB, gives us her take on luminosity with this look for Sunday brunch with the girlfriends:

Notice the lace accents on the ivory blouse and the way that the copper bracelet pops against the espresso midi swing skirt.
