nAUGHTY nautical

Maybe it's my WASPy roots which harken me back to childhood summers on Cape Cod, but a part of me is touched by obvious, old fashion, nautical details in a resort collection. Nina Ricci's dress and peep-toes above do it just the way I like it. Wicker chairs are evoked through sexy navy blue platforms and sail boat rope knots are channeled through the ties on a fusia silk chiffon dress. Cape Cod meets Bryant Park: two places I love too much not to slap the rags that have been inspired by their likeness on my limbs and go coovorting down a rocky beach next to an Atlantic shore that's too cold for any sane, non-blue blooded person to step foot in. Granted, Ricci's nautical resort re-incarnations are no mere rags.
