This is somewhat of a follow up to my previous post about the Pantone colors.

Tracy Reese was in the news recently because of Mrs Obama's convention dress. Incidentally, I pined another version of that dress, the colorblock one.

I love the colors...but it's all so slouchy, waaaah!!!

Check it out: Tracy Reese S13 RTW

Love the colors, just not the cuts:

I'm afraid of the TR for Vogue Patterns that might come out of this.:(

And then there's Monique Lhuillier's Spring '13 Collection. Here's my favorite look from that:

My favorite look:


This one makes me think of that simplicity pattern whose number escapes me in the neckline:

This one is interesting too, textural color blocking, if you will:

I love the "emmanchures américaines" or cutaway shoulders but I am not sure if it will look good on me as I would like to believe:

What do you think?

For myself, I like the individual components of the first look, just not all together. And the side zip sleeveless top would translate nicely into a light winter month top with sleeves. Nice things to translate into 'mature' slouch around wear.

I like what you have checked off for yourself also.

On the last look....did you see the thread on the Valentino dress in the Pattern Modifications section? That dress has a cutaway inset of lush embroidery shaped just like this dress and constructed with a backing. The embroidered inset overlaid gently ruched wide bands that extended to the armhole. You might enjoy seeing it. A different take on the same shaping.

The nails on the first model are sweet.

Had to explain to the hubbie this weekend about the return of peplums. He was perplexed.

Appreciated your other post on the new predicted looks, too.

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.

I totally agree. You have to look pass the runway styling and pull apart the separates. I like all of them and could easily put my own spin on them.

Love the second and third Tracey Reese. I'm a fan of menswear inspired looks for women and "slouchy." That double lapel on the first Tracey Reese is really a beautiful detail. Vogue will likely not publish anything more from Tracey Reese besides more dresses,- so sad. Those are great jackets. I will definitely make a spin off of the second TR.
