This evening Jill of Glamamom and I headed to Center 548 for the Alice & Olivia by Stacy Bendet Fall 2012 Presentation. We arrived at the event space to find a long line because the doors had not yet opened. Fortunately, the Press line was moving rapidly and after a few minutes we were on our way up.
Alice + Olivia always has a fun party vibe at its presentations and tonight’s show was no exception. I loved the show, which had a sophisticated, sexy, and playful vibe. The focus this year was on outerwear and chic knit dressing, including calf length and body skimming dresses. There was plenty of edgy leather, jacquard embroidery, bold jewel tones, and color blocking. I love going to shows where I can afford everything, and I fully intend on buying the Bright Pink Cap Sleeves Shift Dress With Skinny Calf Skin Belt [pictured below].
Which Reality Stars Love Alice + Olivia?
For the show I slipped into Bisou Bisou’s Polka Dot Twist Front Top. I’m such a fan of a polka dot print as I think it’s a really sweet and pretty look. I paired the semi-sheer blouse with basic black slacks and heels.
It was also fun spending time with Pastry co-founder, blossoming fashion designer, and reality starlet Angela Simmons, who was fabulous in Alice + Olivia’s Alex Embellished Trapeze Top [$396], Alice + Olivia Andrew Skinny Pants [$242], and blue Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Suede Pumps [$795]. We talked about her upcoming clothing line “Angela Renee,” expansion of Pastry into a lifestyle brand, and her personal favorite fashion designers (YSL, Chanel, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Roberto Cavalli).
