So Fashion week has come and gone and I didn't so much as update a single post and I'm absolutely ashamed at myself. Although I have to say I have felt a bit somber about the whole thing being that its been quite the lackluster fashion week ever. The clothes, the parties, the presentations, all so somber.I didn't have time during the week to keep posts going and I could very well put all my favorite looks into one collage but thats like asking who is the better olsen twin. You just can't do that.
So I will as done in the past dissect each collection
I was most drawn to.

Now coming back to the last post I mentioned Charlotte Ronson's new collection to be quite different. Which would be an understatement. I have seen designers' departures from previous collections but this would have to be a catapult of change to what we are used to seeing coming from Charlotte Ronson. I love the dandy-ness of the plaid pants outfit and the faux fur lined "amelia aerheart" vest matched with a plaid dress. Which is a hint of the old Charlotte we've seen in the past but the rest of the collection, with all the heavy blacks and leathers, it like looking at a proenza schouler or balmain collection. I can understand the need to get an older target clientele but it took the Charlotte girl and made her a damn woman with sex appeal and a rendezvous in a seedy motel in the wee hours of the night with a seedy man.
They even managed to make the too cute to handle Anabelle-Dexter Jones a sexy leather skirt wearing woman with all cute-ness gone out the window.Theres parts to the collection I loved and theres some that left me feeling a bit damaged because the girl we looked to for sweet, adorable and girly has departed and left a woman of the night in her place. I just hope this isn't going to stick around for future campaigns. I want my charlotte back!!!

I know, just so unexpected from her!!! I actually got to see the collection in person and the material looks so much harsher on the website but separately they aren't so severe.
