Ok, so that post title might be an exaggeration, but perhaps you too have noticed all of the clothes that look paint-splattered?
There are those ads in fashion mags for a high end brand, of course I'm blanking at the moment but I'm pretty sure it isn't YSL even though they seemed to start the trend with this gorgeous dress:
From Robert Rodriguez we have this green paint splattered one($319 at eLuxury):
And this Vince version for $285 at Shopbop:
Or this other Vince version for $245 at Tobi:
Even BCBG has it's own version at $142:
At first I wasn't so sure about the trend, but I'm into it now. It makes for a fun dress and if the splatters are well placed, could help camouflage those flaws as we like our clothes to do - such as the second Vince dress which is black on top and looks as though the paint "drips" down onto the white bottom- that is perfect for someone who is bigger on top.
The Robert Rodriguez dress is great for someone who is long-waisted (has a proportionately longer torso) as well as for someone who doesn't have much of a hip to waist ratio (what I lovingly refer to as my tree-trunk bod, otherwise known as "boyish")
Anyway, these are fun looks to play with.
***Update - when I posted this I hadn't checked my email, Shopbop sent out an email today with pictures of 3 dresses and the title "Wearable Art" - we must be on the same wavelength, although they did not include any of the dresses I posted.
