Tibi Love

Spring is finally here- and with that comes spring fashion!  Gimme some bright colors and patterns and I'm good to go.  Tibi, a line based in Soho, is one of my favorites.  Amy Smilovic, is the creative genius behind the brand and happens to be from St. Simons Island, GA (my hometown), and a fellow graduate of the University of Georgia.  The Spring 2012 collection is perfection: modern, beautiful, cool, and above all- effortless.  I have been a fan since the early days, and still inspired by the brand's incredible evolution, becoming one of the most popular contemporary lines in the world.  These are some of my favorite looks from Spring 2012 (photos courtesy of Tibi).  

Every season, I am amazed by the unique shapes, creative patterns, and wearability of the clothes.  I can throw on a Tibi shift with some flats, and need nothing else.  Living in the South, especially during spring and summer months, you can't beat the fabrics- they are so lightweight and comfortable.

Lucky for me, and other savvy Tibi fans, there is a Tibi outlet in St. Simons Island.  Yes, it's true!  Check out this post by fellow blogger and Tibi fan about the not so outlet, Tibi outlet.  This shop is must while in St. Simons for anyone that loves beautiful clothes.

Quote from designer Amy Smilovic- “I love fashion. I love beautiful things that are well made, with rich and luxurious fabrics. I’m passionate about art, music, modern architecture, and all things chic. And I think the girls of Charlie’s Angels were possibly the chicest on earth. I worship Charlotte Rampling, Jane Birkin and Lauren Hutton. I think women should dress in a way that’s effortless but never lazy. And nothing is sexier than a woman in a long dress with flats. I love it when I see an individual’s personal style reflected in the way they dress. And I always think a woman should dress in contradictions – youthful and sophisticated, masculine and feminine, bold and muted colors.”

I recently scored this bright, retro-inspired Tibi frock from Suska, a local designer consignment shop in Athens.  Perfect day dress for spring and summer (it has pockets too)!
