1.) betsey johnson
2.) luella (<3!!)
luella is one of my absolute favorite designers of all time. possibly my #1?... but let's not get too crazy here. but it literally took every ounce of self control i have not to put every single look from the collection here. it's just all so perfect... the neutrals, sometimes soft and sometimes graphic, mixed with neons, polka dots, patent bows, and crazy eyeshadow... i want it all.
3.) marc by marc jacobs
4.) zac posen
i don't really have much to say about zac posen except that i liked the colors. and i think that's a pretty decent reason, don't you?
5.) temperly london
6.) moschino cheap & chic
7.) house of holland
yeah, i just thought the whole "house" thing was too clever. :) nice change from the normal old circular polka dots, in my opinion.
after a comprehensive study, i conclude that bows will be big this spring. and polka dots. you'd never guess that just from looking at the pictures, though, right? ;)
i also usually really love rodarte and d&g, but this time i thought they were a little disappointing. :( (what's with all the denim?!) and, of course, the alexander wang collection was all well and good, but shall be remembered for one thing alone: the wang braid.
and totally switching topics, i tried bubble tea for the first time yesterday! the place i went had all sorts of flavors, from red bean (?) to strawberry. (i got sour green apple.) it's really weird, cos the tapioca bubbles and all squishy and chewy. and i thought the "tea" part would be, well, more like tea. or at least like a smoothie. instead it's more like a slurpee... but still, really good. :) if you've never tried it before, you definitely should!
