Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice

I was really surprised with Unica Hija's collection for fashion week this year. The brand has been around long enough for me to know that its style is for the ultimate girly-girl. But their collection wasn't just about frills, lace, and ruffles; they showed us that they also do other looks but still manage to stay true to their signature style. In fact, they had 40's inspired dresses with matching bonnets, 50's shape-enhancing peplums, 60's mod shift dresses, corporate wear that wasn't boring at all, preppy blouses that tickled my fancy, trendy tribal printed dresses (worn by Charo Ronquillo) and of course feminine florals. My personal favorite? Charo Ronquillo's lace and aztec printed dress. How clever of them to use the tribal print fabric as a lining for the lace dress! This is the perfect example of merging together trendy and classic pieces. The dress is lace (classic and girly), the lining is in this year's sought-after print (tribal), the cut is mullet type which again makes it feel more "now". I think it embodies Unica perfectly! See what I mean? :)
