Rebecca Taylor Spring/Summer 2012, New York Fashion Week (images from style.com)
Everything is starting to run together a bit now. I felt like there were too many trends all at once on this runway. Bright neons. Lace. Snakeskin prints. Bright gold metallic sandals. And lots of sheer. Not bad, but for the everyday, non-fashionista, one would need to be careful how to wear things from this collection. Should come with a warning label: Do not wear all of these things at once unless you want to look cray-cray. Also was not a fan of the slicked-back hair. I felt it didn’t fit right with the clothing. A lot of it was loose and sheer, and the opposite of uptight. Slicked back hair has always just looked uptight and greasy to me. But what do I know? I did enjoy the seafoam green nail polish and the bright eyeshadow. I only really liked dresses from this show, like the black dress with the floral pattern above, the blue cloud-like print, and the patchwork-esque silky grey/blue dress. The neon, snakeskin prints, and weird black lace I could do without.
