Rachel, Alex, Miuccia, Oh My!

The resort collections from Rachel Roy, Alexander Wang, and Prada have got me all happy and even more ready for summer.




Daria wears these clothes perfectly. The colors absolutely stun me, who could have thought that coral shorts and lime sequins could look so casually chic? Those slim headpieces are gorgeous as well, and I love the teal backdrop, it highlights the silhouettes of the clothes beautifully.



Choosing favorites from the Wang collection was damn near impossible. I love that it has such a plain, fresh, just about all American feel to it while still maintaining the Wang effortlessness I love and wish to emulate so deeply. These are the clothes I want to wear all summer.



Perfectly complementing pastels? Check. Sweet bow details abounding? Check. Gorgeously sculptural flowered heels? Check. Nerdy vests in punchy colors? Of course. The Prada collection makes me want to prance around in the Hamptons.

Any resort favorites of yours?

P.S. My current favorite songs are "Journey of the Featherless" by Cloud Cult, "Kurt Vonnegut" by Born Ruffians, and "Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood" by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. You should listen to them!

I'm loving the resort collections aswell! I think the only collection I've disliked so far is Calvin Klein. But I agree, they are perfect for summer. <3

And good song suggestions. :]

I love the black top of the second row in the first collection and the white top of the second row on the second collection! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! And your style so comes through.

The colors in the first collection are stunning. I love those strange headbands/tiaras too.
P.s. Yes, it was a Decemberists reference.

i like #1,3,and 6 in the first collection. Something I would definitely wear. I like #3 and #4 in the 3rd collection. A little retro but chic!

I love the coral shorts and lime green sequin top! It sooo oddly works.

I'm not a big fan of the Alexander Wang collection, though.

Your only 15! You look older, but your beautiful anyways. More time to grow! I hate how complicated love, and life, and boys can be! Why can't I just live with my own heart, my own hands, and my own head? Why do I feel the need for a boy?

Some things I'll never understand.. but one thing I do know, is that you look stunning in your green top in the previous post!

styleburst said...

This definitely gets u excited for summer.

Shenanigans said...

I have to say I like the prada collection.

Yeah, I finally say the comment you left on my blog so I have come for a visit on yours.

TheGlamorousEccentric said...

I wasn't all that blown away by Wang's collection. I really loved Rachel Roy's--- wearable and chic. She is one of my favorite designers. The Prada collection was also great.

Amelia said...

Re your comment: It's a tiny bit hard to explain what To the Lighthouse is about, because there isn't a lot of action/plot. It's basically about the everyday life of a large British family living by the sea. The descriptions are beautiful.

michellehendra said...

definitely all of them! but if i have to choose, it's gonna be.. Rachel's. :)
