Chic-ometry

A lesson in geometry - who said fashion and math don't mix? I always find mixing textures very interesting as it creates different dimensions and layers within the one outfit so in this case I opted for mixing shapes and their properties (there goes my inner-nerd rearing it's head again..).  Featured below is an Alexander McQueen crystal print dress from SS09.  I've always loved this dress not only for it's amazing draping but the shattered crystal print lends so much to enhancing the shape and cut of the dress.  To accompany and contrast the triangular nature of the crystal print, the Balmain belt was added.  Yes, it's geometry chic-lings so therefore triangle+circle+rectangle = one stunningly intelligent outfit! Not quite E=mc2  but it's all relative ;)

P.S Hairstyle is cool too... yeah I know that's what you were thinking.  I was off to a wedding so it's always convenient when your best friend is a hair stylist.
