Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 RTW

Stunning. All Bond girl, all sex, all the time. And that purple jumpsuit? I swear, I will find a way to find it, fit in it, and wear it. So very well done ladies! Let’s bring in for the slow clap.

Actually, please don’t do that. Just like Terrance Howard, slow claps infuriate me.

Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 RTW

After looking at all of these collections, it all starts to run together sometimes. That’s why I love Rebecca Minkoff. Her collection has a sporty, fresh, vibrant feel to it. It makes me yearn for the Spring when Fall hasn’t even started yet. And I love the Fall. I also loved that the models all carried purses and strutted down the runway like they were about to keep right on walking out onto the sidewalk. Well played Rebecca.

Nicole Miller Spring 2014 RTW

I’ve always loved Nicole Miller’s clothing. Her collections are always a little edgy, very stylish, and somehow encompass all the different personality quirks I have. If I want to look refined, yet tough, I may choose the leather leggings, chiffon blouse and embroidered jacket look. Seeking a more demure look, any of the dress or skirt and top combos would work. It’s all very good and very wearable.

Kate Spade Spring 2014 RTW

Have you ever seen the classic Funny Face? It’s a great movie. Perfect for a girl’s night in or a Friday night when you don’t feel like getting primped and proper for a night on the town. Anyway, this collections screams Funny Face to me. Audrey Hepburn reinvented for the millennium. She’s quirky, smart, funny, and obviously still very, very stylish.

Tanya Taylor Spring 2014 RTW

When I first looked at this collection I had the strongest desire for a  piece of Fruitstripe gum. The stripes and colors just made my mouth start watering. Pavlov knew his stuff. That unnecessary information aside, I liked this collection and it’s kinda sorta preppy vibe. I see, much to my dismay, crop tops aren’t going anywhere.

Marissa Webb Spring 2014 RTW

I have nothing to say that would measure up to this collection. It was brilliant and exactly what I imagine myself wearing during the Spring, while living and working as a stylist in New York. Obviously, when I move to New York I plan to win the lottery or something so that I can afford these pieces, but that’s a minor detail. My dreams are big and who’s got time for realism these days?

Zimmermann Spring 2014 RTW

Um, can you say Sexy Bombshell? Cause, that’s what everyone will be saying when you walk by in any of these looks. The dresses…the pants outfits… the unitards  bodysuits for crying out loud! Who would’ve thought I’d be ready to don a bodysuit again. I used to love them when I was in 4th grade. I went through a luxe, baroque phase where everything I owned was crushed velvet, jewel-toned, and needed to be worn with a pearl choker. I repeat, I was in 4th grade. Way ahead of my game. I even had these tweed shorts I wore with tights and Mary Janes. Classic.  I like these bodysuits a little more. More refined and grown up. Perfect to go from the work to cocktail hour.

Richard Chai Love Spring 2014 RTW

This collection reminds me of the early nineties for some reason. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s full on nostalgia happening. Anyway, this show featured sharp middle of the head parts, somber expressions, and leather jackets everywhere. The fit ranges from close to body and tailored to loose and boxy. I loved the leather moto jackets and crop top/maxi skirt sets. Other than that, I feel like I’ve been there and done that.

Honor Spring 2014 RTW

This collection embodies everything that is Spring. There’s demure tailoring and lace and floral prints everywhere. It’s basically what you pick out to wear when you want to look good but also want to steer clear of side-eye from Granny.
