I’m a crazy Rebecca Minkoff fangirl.
See? That’s me with my favorite purse; the one that goes with every single thing in my closet, looks right for every occasion, and is never evereverever hitting the Goodwill pile. Ever.
And Rebecca’s Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear show only solidified my fangirlness, because it was beautiful.
Any show that opens with a live performance by Tennis (mixed with beats by DJ Cassidy) is a show that I’m going to love. Like the music, the vibe was sweet and fresh…but still unquestionably cool, like a 1960s Florida lounge populated by beautiful women wearing oversized shades and unironically sipping cocktails with little plastic monkeys in them.
Let’s take a look, in case that explanation didn’t quite hit home for you.
In a nice spin on much of Fashion Week’s fare, every single piece at Rebecca Minkoff was 100%, top-to-bottom wearable. Take, for example, the looks that paired feminine blazers with vintage-y rock tees: this is an outfit you can probably throw together right this very moment using pieces you already own. Love that.
An immediate standout: the subtly tropical prints. They’re retro in a completely elegant way, and would look gorgeous paired with anything from a white pantsuit to weekend denim.
In a refreshing switch-up from the skinny silhouettes we’ve been seeing for seasons now, pants had a gentle flare, and featured pretty floral detailing.
Let’s take a seriously long look at this outfit, because every single part of it is wonderful. I need to own those shorts immediately.
And finally, the highlight of the show for me: a red-and-cream bandanna-inspired confection with a gorgeously boho vibe.
On the beauty side, we saw textured waves, aqua nails, glowing skin, and some totally beautiful (and, again, wearable!) eye makeup: black eyeliner paired with a pop of mint around the inner corners (try applying Stila Eyeshadow in Cha Cha with a wet brush for a similar look).
Can’t wait until spring to wear Rebecca’s pieces? I can’t either. Here are some of my favorite fall-perfect Rebecca Minkoff items available on Piperlime right this very minute.
