For those of you who’ve been fighting the winter apocalypse, I am sure it can be a little challenging to get into the Fall 2014 Ready-To-Wear Collections that are coming out of New York right now. However, since I haven’t worn a jacket since last March, I welcome the boots and coats excitedly wondering if next winter will be the winter that I’ll get to wear them…
There are certain collections I look forward to checking out each season, because I know I am going to find certain “favorite” pieces in them. Jill Stuart is one such label, because she always fulfills my girlie needs without leaving me feeling like I’ve regressed back to second grade.
The Jill Stuart Fall 2014 Collection has party dresses that are flirty and fun and undeniably cool and for me really were the star of this show. Seriously, the one thing going through my mind while scanning the wares was “I want to go out with Jill Stuart – I know she know how to have a good time!”
Yes, there were ruffles and polka dots – two looks you will almost never see me in, but they were paired with leather and peek-a-boo detailing that made them feel much cooler than my toddler’s wardrobe. This empowered femininity is a balance that I am always trying to strike in my own wardrobe, but seems to be achieved effortlessly by the Jill Stuart woman.
And as a side note: Let’s all give Jill Stuart a round of applause for the amazing footwear. Year after year the design house puts out shoes I am dying-to-wear… why they haven’t yet graced my closet is beyond me…
What do you think of the Jill Stuart Fall 2014 Collection? What do you look for in a party dress?
