seriously impressed with this collection by the row. the line is known for its minimalist point of view – putting quality and construction before trends – which is great – but they’ve been doing it since the line first debuted – so mixing it up with a few bold colors and FUR – was so refreshing. i also LOVE those leopard slippers featured in a few of the looks – a collaboration with TOMS Shoes. even better, they’re retailing at 150! if you can get your hands on a pair, they’re a steal of a deal – sure to get tons of editorial credits, and will probably sell out before they ever reach store shelves.
i cannot stop thinking about this collection. it’s is the most i’ve been inspired this season.. in such a good way. i love the color scheme. i love the quilt inspired sweaters and dresses. and i love the dressed with custom prairie plain landscapes. just as much as the clothes, i love the beauty. i don’t even mind that it is super similar to last season – it actually makes me love it even more because i LOVED last season’s beauty too. the side parted, messy chic bed head – with the little braids, and fan inspired brass hair pins – WOW. and the make up – hues of red clay, silvery blue, and gray. matchy nails and lips have never looked so good. i’m even thinking about coloring my hair that light brownish-reddish-blondish color a few of the models are wearing. i’ve been an extreme whitish blonde for a year or so now and i’m feeling a change is in my future.
what isn’t rachel comey known for… every season i fall for her prints.. her knits.. her amazing shoes.. even her quirky styling. i admit – i would probably never wear some of the combination this woman masterminds – but i always love taking a closer look and noticing the blouse under the sweater – or the little ties here or there. as a fashion conscious shopper, i also appreciate that her style never strays too far each season. so i know if i splurge on a pair of wooden soled shoes – they’ll be back on her runway the next season and probably the season after that.. making handing over a hard earned chunk of change hurt not so badly.. at lease that’s what i tell myself.
i thought this collection was alot harder than most dvf shows. i love all the black – that dress with the oversized polka dot dress – wow i would have never expected that from her. even the more commercial color blocked looks – especially the one with the amazing fur green jacket – looks more european than south beach. and how about the red sequin dress – that hue of red is unexpected and uber chic – cannot wait to see who wears that dress on the red carpet. finally. i just love this photo of the two designers – especially Yvan Mispelaere and his little red brooch – so many times adorable – and even better – i feel a diy project coming on.
how do they mix navy and orange and not make it look sporty – so good! those cubist prints are amazing too – simply want a sweater please. i also love how they have continued exploring this architectural mini skirt over skirt thing – i believe style bubble called it a ‘pelmet skirt,’ so we will too. i think it just gives so much interest and shape to their looks. finally – how can we not talk about that bead work – so tough, yet intricate, soft and pretty.
a different version of this asymmetrical dress, it was from la garconne, in the first look is what got me hooked on bodkin. now i love them for their boyish fit, and that hat – how it just sits on top of her head – pouf-ed like whatever – i just put this on – and i know it looks a little like a cone – but i like it. i mean – that’s what i would say if it were my hat..
i consistently love these guys. first, the colors are amazing. i mean the first orange dress – that orange is so vibrant and happy and just exudes confidence. and then the unexpected white jacket/pant combo with that hue of fur quirk-ily decorating the chest with the over-sized hat – and the lipstick – can-not-get-over-it. i also loved, loved, loved the steel blue, long sleeve dress that looks so effortlessly cool. i mean – come on – you have to just love how the dress wraps around the neck, makes your arms look long and lean, and then just floats, effortlessly everywhere else. love.

everything looks so fluid.. even when it is perfectly sculpted. this collection made me stop and pay attention to a brand that i worshiped as a kid… i pulled weeds for a week just so my mom would buy me a calvin klein pullover sweater. see more at style.com
you just feel cool, in the know maybe, when you wear karen walker… what else is there to say? it’s off beat, fun, and cool. plus i love how even just one piece can easily update everything else you already have in your closet for the new season. see the entire collection at style.com
Queen of bohemia — love Love LOVE Anna Sui. I was recently in this great vintage store, and they had a few pieces from her quintessential collections in the 90′s. And then I see this collection, so similar to the vintage pieces i was lusting after – i just loved it instantly. The way she mixes colors and prints is genius- and incredibly, she makes feathers, and tribal beads look like a summer staple, rather than a trend of the moment. My favorite part though, is seeing models with smiles on their faces.. it makes me smile and happy and reminds me why i love fashion!! see more at style.com
if i could wear any designers’ clothes… all the time… forever… phillip lim would be a close contender for the top spot. everything he does looks polished and portrays the effortlessness every stylish person i know attempts to achieve when getting dressed. i love his neutral palette, and those sheer dot pants are so good.. albeit maybe tough to fit into the wardrobe rotation.
the lips, the messy hair, the effortlessly pulled together-ness. i feel like they styled the girls exactly how i want to dress. i used to think of this brand as… you know the dated label with butterflies on everything and washed out florals/silks and whatnot… weather that really happened or if it was just in my head… i take it all back. love. oh and love to style.com for the supersize images…
too much to say here… so lets start with this.. for the first time rebecca minkoff is offering a head to toe look and.. i love it. i mean, with the clothes, there is no reinventing the wheel going on… but the styling made me want everything. Those shoes… so good.. uh if only i had those tan/sparkle shoes on my feet right now…. and the little boots and the ones with the thick black straps… also.. that nude dress with the black trim… oh and the leather with the red dress!! yeeps! thanks style.com
Yeeps! Something about that structural belt/skirt thing just makes me so happy! I love that it shows off the waist, but then the rest of it looks easy and effortless. Also, something has to be said for the ethnic bib-like thing going on.. it bares just the right about of skin to look feminine, but still has a cool-girl vibe.. love! thanks style.com
the palette, the lips, the hair, the shine with the sheers with the blues with the whites. thanks style.com
