A few weeks ago I learned about French Toile, today I looked into Chinoiserie. I had no idea how to pronounce it, but apparently it's "chi-noi-se-rie" ! Chinoiserie is the European interpretation and imitation of Chinese and other East Asian artistic traditions, especially in the decorative arts. Until recently I had only seen it in homewares & wallpaper, but I was excited to see the print pop into fashion much like the Toile.
I paired the outfit with my trusty Kate Spade Margaux bag, J.Crew belt, and these fun Mary Jane heels by Sam Edelman to play up the vintage elements in the dress.
