Inspiration


i particularly enjoy when an item has both form and function. dresses with pockets, for example.

Speaking of pockets, why don't they put inside pockets in women's coats like they do in men's? I have them in my parka, but not in any other coat, and it sure does come in handy. Is it so as not to obscure our female form? Because it's a big ass coat, it's already obscuring me, and I want a pocket.

Yes, both form and function is wonderful; I love the trend of placing pockets on the hip seam of dresses, although I can't stand short jackets with tiny pockets placed too high to be of any use.
On the same subject: why can't (most) handbags be made with enough internal compartments or pockets so I don't have to dig around in a cavernous bag for a ringing cell phone?

iheartfashion - you're a candidate for the down-sizing of purses that is (hopefully) going to catch on. honestly, i have a small bag and a large, roomy one, and i like the tidiness of the small and the opportunity to rummage through the large. but i have never been a fan of internal compartments or pockets in my bags... weird. in fact, neither of my bags have any pockets...
i don't like those useless pockets on jackets either.

carlene - i bet that will just never catch on. it's just one of those traditions. even younger lines. maybe it's something they're taught in design school...

I love a pocket inside a woman's blazer. I have a tuxedo which has the inside pocket.

And I do love dresses with pockets too, or anything with the slanted pockets that you can slip your hands right in.

candid cool - not just an inside pocket but on a tuxedo no less. ooo, that's good.

when i discover that a dress i'm trying on has pockets, if they're hidden, that seals the deal 99.99% of the time.
