Tory Burch Spring 2011

I had the honor of attending Tory Burch's Spring 2011 presentation at Fashion Week!  (Yes, it took me a while to post this... I do have kids that have kept me very busy lately, but that does not take away from how exciting and fun this event was!)  And, what a fabulous presentation it was... the clothes were hot, the music was pumping and I got to stand next to Tory Burch & Anna Wintour (briefly)!

Let's begin with the clothes... a definite '70's vibe mixed with a bit of prep and a dash of surfer cool.  The looks included flares, a couple of maxi dresses, flowing skirts that fell below the knee, a baja paired with glittery gold pants and, of course, the beloved trench.

The colors were invigorating!  It was a fresh grouping of navy, a very rich yellow, a beautiful tangerine, khaki, a beautiful blush, as well gold (we must have a metallic!)... the colors are the usual Spring fair, but the color combinations as well the prints keep everything looking new.

The accessories had a new & fresh vibe as well.  Large gold hoops were worn by just about every model.  The other option were large earrings or a statement necklace (which is a look I love, I am happy it is sticking around).  The shoes were high... platforms, stacked heel, thin heels, wedges as well as some great flat sandals!  Nudes & metallics are still popular footwear choices as well as a navy heel!  The handbags were all over the board... large woven bags, small leather bags as well as larger, colorful bags.  The bags were structured, but also fun.

The hair was very simple & polished as was the makeup.  Low ponytails with a bit of teasing at the crown was the hairstyle of choice, but overall the hair was simple and straight.  The makeup was dewy and very natural looking.  A pink lip and a little blush helped the girls to look fresh-faced and springy... a perfect complement to the clothing!

I am in love with the collection!  It was so fresh with a retro edge (I also love the '70's... so I was in heaven!)... I think that there were many investment worthy pieces.  Definitely keep an eye out for these pieces to start hitting the stores after the holidays... Tory definitely did not disappoint!!!
