On Spanish Street The Mood is Sultry
In Europe the sun is still valiantly shining, staring down the looming clouds and dark days of Autumn. It’s a magical time, when we manage to hold on to a sliver of the languid life we had all summer, even when back at work. In particular the sunbaked Spanish Streets are such an inspiration for transitional style.
Even in Fall the sun blazes down, providing a backdrop for the sutra Señorita style dresses that seem to be everywhere right now. There’s lace, there’s black and sultry looks aplenty in the stores. Naturally enough for the winter, the black dresses comes out of the closet, but what to do when it is still too warm for tights and over the knee boots? What to wear when you’re still bathed in the post summer glow, but business beckons?
I am so inspired by the feel of these dusty back streets and the black clothing, it gives an essence of something from centuries back, present in every Mediterranean country. A Dolce & Gabbana meets Almodovar feel, if you like. Penelope Cruz or Sofia Vergara should be stalking these streets, a smear of dark red lipstick and a defiant look in the eye.
