NEW ARRIVALS ALERT! 3.1 Phillip Lim Women

New 3.1 Phillip Lim styles just dropped today!
As you know we received a shipment a week back, and some pieces are already selling out like Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.
But fear not, because just this morning a small delivery of various new frocks from 3.1 Phillip Lim has made its way to wondermomo… including designs from his decadent 2011 RESORT collection!
Be sure to stop by to check it out before your size is gone :-)
There’s good reason why the 3.1 Phillip Lim RESORT 2011 collection received high acclaim. Indulging in reminiscences of young Bianca Jagger, heading to Studio 54 in her signature jumpsuits and maxis, the combination of refined '70s references and relaxed minimalism makes this collection majorly chic and completely in keeping with this season's most important trends. And the soft colour palette -- pale peach, meadow green, daffodil and cream -- easily mixes into any closet and stretches well into the seasons ahead.

• 3.1 PHILLIP LIM RESORT Jumpsuit with Open Tie-Back (RRP US$625)
Ballroom dinners, philharmonic concerts, boutique openings, fundraisers, private soirees at home -- you’re a social butterfly with fashionable obligations. If you’re up for an event where you’ll most likely be photographed, take a style risk -- this 3.1 Phillip Lim stunner, perhaps? It may be from his resort collection, but Phillip Lim’s sophisticated onesie is totally perfect for excursions of all kinds. And the peak-a-boo back will make for a pretty surprise :-)

• 3.1 PHILLIP LIM RESORT Cropped Wide-Leg Fringe Pants
(RRP US$375)
Skinnies may have a long life left in them yet, but this is the year in which flares are on-trend, and wide-leg trousers are right there at the top of the trend list. Kind of vintage yet very modern and practical, these pants -also made from Chinoiserie-style silk jacquard- will easily take you from the office to the bar.

See these hippie-elegant pieces in motion in this dreamy little clip featuring Belgian model Pauline Van der Cruysse.

• High heels provide a sleeker look for wide-leg trousers, but it’s by no means a faux pas to wear them with flat footwear - there are taller women who pull off the look with sass and style. High-waisted wide-leg pants are especially elongating of the leg line, so wearing flats won’t necessarily make you look dumpy.
• Pair with a slim-fitting top to balance out the volume on the bottom half. A soft, billowing blouse can also work well but is best broken up with a waist-cinching belt.
• Wear with utter 70s glamour: wide-leg trouser, platforms and a big floppy hat.

Or just look to vintage icon Bianca Jagger for style inspiration!
