Style Watch: Inspiration from Sharapova

Yeah yeah, I am not her fan on the court and will probably never be; but I do like some of her outfits and particularly this combination of white and coral/peach from a picture taken while she is in Sochi for the Winter Olympics (source: The Slice). Very nicely done, Maria!

I love white dresses and with the pretty coral hue for the shoes, am all for it!  From afar, the jacket looked like one of those long tuxedo jacket à la Mickey Mouse in the opera…but it turns out it is a coat tied at the back…only disappointing element.

Regardless, I will look to copy this look.  If you are interested as well, some options for the items below…depending on your budget…

White dresses @ Yoox (la petite robe or Marni) / Piperlime (FreePeople) / Zara (shift)

Phillip Lim for Target – Fall Collection 2013

Phillip-Lim-for-Target

In my first post for SissiFashion, I did mention that I would be on the look for green and navy blue as my go-to color combination for fall.  Being a tennis fan, I saw a picture of Maria Sharapova (no, am not a fan of her tennis but I do like her fashion sense) with a cute colorblock long-sleeved shirt and blue skirt.  It had a J.Crew feeling and so I checked…..and discovered that it is part of the Phillip Lim for Target upcoming fall collection!

See for yourself a preview of the collection HERE.

I have had my share of hits and misses when it comes to big designers pairing with low-cost retailers for a collection line.  Some examples: Versace for H&M was a big disappointment for me, and I waited in line!! Jimmy Choo for Target did not work, too polyesterish.  On the other hand, Neiman Marcus for Target was AWESOME!

As a result, I am excited but cautious about all the LIM for Target collection, we will see how it turns out….if I get an opportunity to even find an item!

If you are a Maria Sharapova tennis fan, sorry we will agree to disagree on her personality as a tennis player, but definitely agree on her style sense 😉
