Everything has Beauty

Leave a Little Sparkle

Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2013

Sorry I haven't posted in forever!  Some of the Pre-Fall collections are out and this one is one of my faves!  Rachel Roy is such an amazing designer, she is definitely one of my favorites!  This collection is inspired by Haiti and Kenya.  Rachel went to Haiti talk with local women about business ideas.  I love the way Rachel mixes patterns and opposites for example, she was inspired by cultures that are very down to earth but balanced it out with an urban, businesswoman sensibility.

Alexa Chung

My gripe is that a lot of young girls aspire to be super sexy and I don’t see why. What is attractive or alluring is not necessarily how much flesh you bare, but how good your brain is, or how much charm you have. Fake tan, fake tits - this porn thing has become embedded in our culture. It’s a shame. Maybe it’s because I’m a country girl, but I hate it when women only dress for men. I think it’s more exciting to reveal less. Maybe wear layers of smocks and then have super-sexy underwear on. Dress like a pilgrim on the outside and a whore underneath.

Erdem Spring 2012 RTW

Erdem is a wonderful young English designer.  His signature is florals.  Flowers are a symbol of spring and I love that he used blue, even though blue isn't really a spring color.  The contrast between the flowers and the blue gave this collection a very dreamy, light quality about it.  The girl of this collection is young, but loves to try on older women's clothes; she's trying to be mature.  I'm a big fan of Erdem and his dresses, they are always so feminine and elegant.  XOXO, Allie
