Don’t they say, “Third time’s a charm”? Three new Alaia dresses arrived in stock to INA Soho, each cupcake frilled, full-skirted dresses.

Or in other words, a guest brought a mille-feuille cake to a holiday celebration, and a party game began of counting the layers.

The diamond weave of the pleats strung together elastically, relate to the diamond weave of the bodice, and could even complement a lizard-trimmed, suede pump.

Another party favor - an Alaia pony-haired platform. With an opening in the suede wedge, the platform is bridge-like. This wedge platform has the appearance of being scooped-out in the middle.

To wear an Alaia chunky wedge mule with an open toe, in coordination with an Alaia leather skirt, is to wear Alaia in its best setting - to compose a fashion ballad to INA Soho's favorite designer.
