Last time I attended Fashion Week to see the Fall 2010 collections I was turned away at the doors of Tracy Reese (I had an invite but the venue reached capacity before all guests could be allowed inside), so this time around, I was not going to miss it! And thankfully, I got in and took my place at the back in the standing area. Didn't have the best view but I was grateful to be there, just the same. I love Tracy Reese because her clothes are whimsical, youthful, colorful and wearable, and if you find her stuff on sale or sites like Gilt.com, the prices are not entirely out of reach.
The show notes read: "Clean, classic, mellow, groovy! For Spring 2011, Tracy Reese is inspired by the dream of glamorous travel and immersing one's self in a new and exotic location." Reese referenced the '70s with updated retro looks from tie neck blouses, poncho and Bermuda shorts, to high-waist trousers, earthy hues, mixed prints, and round-frame glasses every cool girl is going to want to wear. I loved most of the dresses but favorite looks included an army blue henley and cuffed shorts with layered chain necklaces and a floral shirtdress. Shoes were from Highline United for Tracy Reese, manicures by Sally Hansen and hair by Jeanie Syfu for TRESemme.
