Colenimo Spring/Summer 2013 / Helen Wills Moody

I'll return to my Fall "Lusts & Musts" list shortly. For now, I thought I'd share that I was just catching up on my blog reading and noticed my favourite style bloggers Honey Kennedy and A Thought Is the Blossom have shown peeks of the Colenimo Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which caught my eye, in part because the pieces are said to have been inspired by 1920s tennis star Helen Wills Moody.  I LOVE the outfits depicted below, but after perusing some real-life photos of Wills Moody, it is probably no surprise that this vintage fashion fuddy duddy loved the original muse's style--both on and off court--even more!! In the end, I like the tailored pieces of this vintage-inspired collection (though for some reason I found myself thinking more that these were looks Amelia Earhart would have loved for her fashion line).

Gorgeous fashions one and all. I often think about one of my maternal great-grandmas when you feature 20s and 30s outfits like these (and modern day pieces that channel their spirit), because she was a busy young mom during those decades and I like to image her sporting similar styles while in the midst of raising nine kids!
