The Helena Dress.

There are certain designers that can do no wrong in my book. It really just depends on how the clothes fit, what sort of patterns they use, and what sort of cuts they choose. Troubadour is one of those brands, for me. I want everything they make. Lindsey Carter (the designer) has an incredible eye for textiles… choosing vivid ikats, floral watercolor patterns, and bold graphics… so that each and every piece she creates ends up being a surefire statement maker.

To celebrate the launch of her new Spring collection, Lindsey invited me to choose a piece to style here and I knew it had to be the Helena Dress. This dress is essentially a piece of art. The cut of the skirt, the draped top… the watercolor pattern… it could end up being a little bit over the top but somehow it all just works, so well! I cannot wait to wear it somewhere fabulous once things thaw out a bit.

Trent and I shot these photos indoors at the gorgeous Hotel Indigo… upstairs at their super chic lounge, Mr. Purple. Although it was the coldest day of the year (that biting cold Saturday during fashion week) we still managed to get out onto the roof to take a few photos! It was fun experimenting a bit with a new location and shooting inside.

Also, just for fun… a little Troubadour walk down memory lane for you… It all really started with this post (that built in necklace!!) and then it was this top and this jacket… and then this post (still one of my favorite dresses) and this post from this past Fall! Yup… I’m a little bit obsessed.

See what I mean when I say her pieces are like artwork? I guess you could say I’m a bit of a collector. 😉

(Because not every photo turns out as planned. As I mentioned earlier, it was the coldest day of the year and so incredibly windy up on the roof. Still, I thought this shot was pretty hilarious. My hair!!)
