Day 2 at the Tents + Tracy Reese Spring 2009 RTW

Hey Fashion Bombers!
So I took a day off on Saturday to avoid the monsoon like weather! Thankfully intern Adriana stepped in (aren't you just loving her show write ups??), and the sun came out on Sunday... I made my way to the tents. I kept it simple yet edgy in a Forever 21 black blouse, J.Crew Skirt, Jenny Dayco earrings, a Miu Miu Matelasse Bag from Bag, Borrow, or Steal, and shoes by Melody Ehsani. What can I say, black and white is always chic, and I like to throw in eye catching accessories to make it all unique.
I dipped into the Tracy Reese show...
..which is always a must see for me during Fashion Week.
Her collection, simply titled "Spring!" was an explosion of floral and nature inspired prints in watercolor pastels of vibrant colors like peach, blue, green, and purple.
Her attention to detail was flawless and unabashedly pretty. I appreciated the little details: buttons of shimmering crystal, delicate frothy organza flowers, gold brocade on classic trenches, leaf appliques, and lots of lots of girly lace.
My favorite looks:
I dipped backstage afterwards (as usual) and caught a picture with former Style File subject Brandy:
She looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress and long lashes. She's super sweet!
Adriana's going to Tibi and Miss Sixty tonight while I work on the first Fashion Week Real Style video. It's gonna be dope!
Stay tuned for more show reviews, video, and pictures from my 2nd Anniversary Party!!!
