For the Février 2010 issue, Carine Roitfeld styles the girls in Dior shorty trenches, Miu Miu kitty prints and Louis Vuitton military style tweeds, with all of the fantasy, inspiration, sex appeal and I want to be her-ness you could want.

I can’t say that I have ever really been a fan of the perfect match when we are talking colors and clothes and shoes and handbags. Sure, I am all for the monochromatic grey or black or dark blue when the mood is right and the textures and patterns varied enough to carry interest, but the flaming fuchsia dress with the flaming fuchsia shoes, or the yellow-yellow hat, handbag and halter dress…I think you’re going to have to convince me.
I have seen some matchy-matchy creeping into 2010 and I think I’m going to have to keep you posted on whether or not I can be convinced, but I have a feeling it's all about the shoes. Here is Anna Dello Russo of Vogue Nippon and London socialite Andrea Dellal in all of their gold and red matching glory, respectively.

One short, long-sleeved, little black sweater dress, some closet shopping and a dose of rethinking, all mixed with some temperamental February weather and it’s my own little self-imposed fashion challenge. Without any recessional motivations, just purely fashionably indulgent ones, I will style my winter-y LBD with the new, not-so-new, vintage, forgotten, high, low, re-discovered and random pieces from my closet. One little black dress, five ways.
