Sugar Magnolia Sunday
On this warm Sunday, every woman in New York City decided to wear her new bohemian Spring 2005 outfit. Long flowy skirts, sequined tunics, smocked emroidered sundresses and beaded necklaces crowded the streets making me feel as if I was on my way to a Dead show rather than to sun myself and read the Times weddings section on the Christopher Street Pier. Women were looking much more dirty than they were a year ago when they were wearing more civilized 50's inspired sundresses and circle skirts. I, too, was part of the fashion madness in my own smocked sundress which I know makes me look pregnant. I am embarrassed I've fallen prey to this ridiculous and unflattering trend.
