Stepping into Center 48 felt like stepping into a time machine back to the 1950s. Models standing around the room looked like the picturesque woman of that era. From corsets and bustiers, to cropped pants and full skirts, sophisticated elegance is back with the alice + olivia spring/summer 2013 collection.
|Full skirts are baaaaack|
|Add green to your closet for spring|
As if her clothes and shoes weren't fabulous enough, designer Stacey Bendet added handbags for spring! I mean is she a triple threat, or what?! I literally walked around the room at least three times admiring this gorgeous and fun collection. Leopard, polka dots, coral and vibrant prints are here to stay for at least another season. Stacey effortlessly blended primary colors with soft pastels for this collection, and what an unexpected treat! It just goes to show that in fashion, the rules are off limits. alice + olivia, season after season, continues to be a front runner for fun and flirty. If you want to make a statement or silence a room, put on an a+o party dress; I guarantee you will be the talk of the evening. Take, for example, the gorgeous lemon beaded dress. I mean, how amazing is this dress? I have already tried to find somewhere to wear this for spring. It HAS to come live in my closet!
