A collection with a point of view, but a minor detail - the choice of fabric, color-combination, or the print would make a good outifit, just meh. These were my favorites.
Before I talk about the good, I'll talk about the bad. I don't like the sandals. I love flats and I love sandals, just not these...especially because I have wide feet - don't need to emphasize that part. I even liked two other looks that I just couldn't put in here because the sandals bothered me so much. The last one is the only exception and that's only because there's a feaking' fur bib on the shirt. Yeah, let that sink in. I just loved that detail. As you can tell I pretty much liked the use of fur in this collection and even though it's real fur (I'm such a hypocrite though because when it's fur, I get kind of like oooh, I don't know, but then when it's leather - what?! Leather comes from animals, what are you talking about? It's so bad and I try, but...yeah.) I can get behind the design details. Hopefully you followed that abomination of a sentence.
By now you know me and my love of color, but I think I love the basics just as much, especially because this collection was pretty much monochromatic and it heightened the simplicity even more and brought out those awesome details, like the fur bib - not going to get over it. Also guys, Full House. Can't help but think of the Olsen sisters as cute little tiny babies sometimes. They have come so far.
I was a bit underwhelmed by this collection...maybe because it's Rachel Roy. I just expected something a lot of more exciting because I love her work. These were pretty much my favorites.
The amount of love I have for this collection is indescribable, but I'm going to try anyway. I would have put the whole collection on here, but you were saved by my laziness. I still ended up saving sixteen pictures. All the looks are just so wearable, like 'ready-to-wear' right from the runway. You just rolled your eyes at my lame pun didn't you? Anyway, back to the collection. Holy mother of batman, the prints are amazing, the colors are perfect and even the fabrics are perfect. I call it sleek femininity. Also, click on the image for a larger pictures or go to style.com, or nytimes.com (wherever you can find the largest images), so you can truly admire the beauty.
Like the cropped jacket.
Sheer skirts, yes.

Some really stand out pieces, like the zippered sweater. I liked how it seemed like the models were cocooned in the clothing, especially because I'm really cold right now... even though I have three layers on, and I'm in California and it's only 61 degrees. Yeah sometimes I wonder about myself.
