Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Runway Show




On day 2 of fashion week, I attended the Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 runway show, filled with daytime sparkle and bold citrus hues that radiated against cool blues, grays and black. I guess it's a bit unfair (OK, very unfair) of me to only favor the floaty dresses and floral prints that Rebecca Taylor fans so adore, but I respected her decision to be edgier this season: Lots of asymmetry, hooded parkas and messy hair added interest to this very "directional" show, to borrow a word from my dear friend Angie of youlookfab.com, who I was so happy to catch up with before the show.

Off the Rack: September Shoe Highlights at Target




Finally, my Target has boots! I spotted the usual suspects: Tall slouch boots with a low heel that work well with dresses and skirts; black riding boots with elastic side panels that adjust to your calves; flat moto boots to pair with skinny jeans, suede shoeties for dressier occasions and work; the Steve Madden look-a-likes from last season. Actually, a lot of the styles looked like last season's offerings. That's why my favorites included some brown buckle-embellished flat boots (above) and some brown high-heel ankle boots - they offered a little something new. Browse more photos after the jump. Any favorites?
