Timeless White Dress Shirt by Queen Anne Fontaine
There’s no other closet staple that’s as timeless or as versatile as the white button-down shirt. And who knows best how to make a white dress shirt look good on a woman? I have to say, the answer must be Anne Fontaine.
Falling in love with a brand is just like falling for a person. There must be some connection or click. There are a lot of people asking me to describe my own style. I always refer myself as fun, graceful (of course) and polished.
As you can see from the two looks I am wearing, Anne Fontaine designs are above all others. She is definitely the white dress shirt queen and her designs are so elegant, fun and polished. You see? Anne Fontaine is basically my fashion soul mate. 😉
Of course, you don’t just fall in love with somebody because of their looks (not that looks hurt). Deep down, you fall in love because you admire the person or that person makes you feel good about yourself. Anne Fontaine is certainly a designer who knows about womens bodies and how to make them feel good about themselves. She has the magic touch to make a basic white dress shirt look super sexy, but still elegant.
Just like this black ADONIA skirt I am wearing makes me feel so sexy without showing much skin! Can you believe how beautiful this cream ANOUSHKA blouse is!? There is no need to point out the elegance and femininity in this top, as it is her signature style. The puffy sleeves are so right now and add so much fun.
Let’s talk about how versatility. This BORIS collar is the perfect example to show how thoughtful Anne Fontaine is. You can wear it with a white dress shirt, a black one like I did, or an off the shoulder top…. There are endless options to use this collar and make every look unique and fun!
Anne really knows how to make her pieces looking good on any woman. For example, for any girl who has a D or D+ chest, button down shirts often are not an option because it pulls open from the front all the time. All the shirts by Anne Fontaine have more buttons on the chest area to ensure everything is in its rightful place.
When I think about buying a luxury piece, often I give up at the last minute because I hate the thought of having to dry clean every time I wear it. It is just too much time and effort for me. All of Anne Fontaine clothes can be machine washed. Score!
Now you get my point. I LOVE Anne Fontaine’s designs. I also admire her as a human being. I always wanted to be a fashion designer and this year I finally started to give it a try. 😉 On that note, it’s needless to say how much I admire her talents and hard work. Above everything, the thing that really speaks to me is her heart. In addition to her own life style brand (her white dress shirts and everything that goes with them), Anne Fontaine also runs a foundation to preserve the Mata Atlântica and save the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest.
How does she do that? She designed some products to raise awareness and uses the money from these items to plant more trees. The EcoBag for example, which was designed by Anne Fontaine, is a recyclable bag made partially from recycled plastic bottles. It contributes to funding the Foundation’s reforestation projects. By purchasing an EcoBag for $20, you can help plant 5 trees and at the same time decrease the use of plastic bags. This month, the 22nd is Earth Day. These bags would make the perfect heart felt gift for that day!
