Did you see those floral trousers on Jeanne Damas’ Instagram?
Of course they’re from Rouje.
I’ll do a summery dress, obviously, or a summery skirt, but I’ve never been one for summery trousers.
After adoring my Matis, Lena, and Gabin dresses… and of course the Lolo jumpsuit… it was bound to happen.
It was only a matter of time that I got a sour cherry.
Peak cherry season, for the fruit and the clothing print, is early summer.
… you remember those long sweet days when all you want to do is pop by the farmer’s market and grab a bag on your way to the water.
The Lena is one of Rouje’s newest dresses.
It’s a midi-dress with 13 buttons down the front, a frilled collar and capped sleeves. The dress’ sweetness is offset by a striking red on black Italian inspired spot print…
Basically, the Lena is like Jean-Luc Godard meets Fellini. It’s a living the sweet life kind of dress that leaves you breathless…
OK, those films are pretty depressing in content. In style though? They’re spot on.
Rouje’s Gabin dress, i.e. the dress that always sells out.
You’ve seen this dress before… or you’ve at least seen one of its many dupes.
With its five buttons running down the front and a tie closure, the Gabin has been copied many, many, many times since it came out two years ago.
… but the original is so much better than any replica.
After the lightly disappointing Naomi skirt, I took a break from Réalisation Par.
… and then my eBay alert dinged: the Kate dress in red polka dot was just listed.
There’s something so sweetly and slightly seductive about a white dress with red polka dots. I’ve been trying to find the Kate dress and Rouje’s Gabin in white with red polka dots, but hadn’t had any luck.
The Holy Closet Trinity: White t-shirt, battered denim shorts, and a black silk slip dress.
… there is nothing in this world that’s easier or more fun to wear than any of those three pieces. But there’s nothing in your closet that’s harder to find than that perfect one.
I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.
I hate how much I love this dress.
The year was 2010. I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed sophomore at FIT who waited outside Madewell for Alexa Chung’s debut collection during Fashion’s Night Out. Luckily by the time I tried it on, the Strokes had left the party. It’s hard to explain, but her Madewell collaboration looked awful on me.
