Shorts With a Story

With tennis pros invading the city to show off limbs I thought were anatomically impossible,  I've been wishing to shape my thunder thighs into bulging quadriceps. But lacking the discipline of an athlete, I'm thinking adorning my untoned limbs in lively printed shorts will do. With garden, floral, and food inspired prints dominating spring collections, there are endless options to choose from. Printed jeans, shorts, playsuits, etc.  How ever to choose?  For me there is far more than the colors and shapes that make up and print, I love to approach printed pieces the way I would a painting. For example, a waist cinching little printed dress Santa Claus brought me christmas of 2006. This printed dress spoke to me because it blended youth and charm to the Emilio Pucci label. It was part of Matthew Williamson's debut in joining the historic Italian brand. I wore the mini endlessly until 2010, and every now and then I take him out for a spin. As for a printed pair of shorts to trot my summer in, I bonded with CrOp's Sidonie, because the inspiration of their prints charms with culture of a southern city I've always wanted to visit, New Orleans:  CrOp's Shorts Stories
