Massimo Giorgetti, the designer behind MSGM, showed up on my radar a couple of seasons ago and I became a fan instantly. His signature look pays respect to great fashion tradition infused with elements of contemporary art and his love of indie music. The results are never too serious and very wearable.  This encapsulates my approach to fashion perfectly. I always like to include one outfit element that’s a little offbeat, but subtly so. While this dress is not exactly subtle, I still think it’s fun and I would wear it in a heartbeat. Typically MSGM’s price point is fairly moderate, but the floral detail of this dress does come at a cost. While scrolling through my blog feeds the other day, I came across this Asos skirt, thanks to Marlien Rentmeester of Le Catch, and it sparked my idea to make my own version. I already have the shirtdress and the skirt is on its way (I jumped on that one pretty quickly). Stay tuned for pics next week of how it turned out.
