five shows, one look

New York Fashion Week is still in full swing around here. I went to 5 shows today, and had to cut the day short before hitting the other 4 I RSVP'd to. Exhaustion set in early and I needed food for the belly and a bath for the back. Out of the 5 shows that I went to, each with somewhere between 25-35 looks, only one of the looks - and I mean ONE OUTFIT OF THE 125-175 OUTFITS THAT I SAW - stood out.

This outfit from Rachel Roy's collection:
                             -Linen silk flax suiting soft jacket with zinnia trim
                             -Natural white silk twill wrap top
                             -Linen silk flax suiting slouch pant

Unlike EEEEEEEEEVERY other s/s collection out there this (and every) season, this outfit just begs for spring/summer without being obvious. It's casual, it's elegant, it can be worn by anyone...it can be worn, period

So what is everybody else coming out with for spring/summer, you ask?

Florals for spring?!!! Brilliant! Original. Really inspired. 
(oh, that was sarcasm in case my bold, bright colors threw you off)

Welcome to fashion, people...ride the wave of greatness.
