LG Fashion Week: Pink Tartan Spring 2012

I can’t believe it’s almost December, and I am still posting LGFW reviews! At least, as with other spring previews, it gives you (and me) something to look forward to this winter. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

So, on to Pink Tartan Spring 2012. French tunes leading the way, attendees were in for a Riviera-inspired treat. Chic black and white frocks, striped jackets, and cigarette pants were all perfect for trotting the streets of Nice, looking like you belong.

My favorite pieces included anything striped (obviously), shiny red (or blue) pants (so fun!), and dresses that looked office-appropriate, yet dressy enough for a night out on the town (best combo ever).

Overall, Pink Tartan Spring 2012 certainly wasn’t a groundbreaking collection, but I loved it nonetheless. Most pieces had a timeless feel (save for the shiny red pants) that I’ve been needing to infuse into my own wardrobe. In my opinion, the more wearable, modern classics, the better.

What do you think of Pink Tartan’s spring collection? Let me know in the comments.

Style Fille: Rachel Bilson

Ok, so I don’t even know what Rachel Bilson is famous for anymore (other than that OC show), but I’ve always been a fan of her style. There’s just something about Rachel, don’t you think? I really like this outfit from head to toe, but if I had to choose just one piece to rave about, it would be her hat. You have to have a special kind of personality to be able to pull off hats. 

Take last night, for example. I watched Liz Cabral (a fellow Style Fille) sport a wide-brimmed black hat similar to Rachel’s, and she looked so…natural wearing it. Point is – Liz Cabral wore the ish out of her hat, the hat did not wear Liz Cabral. Which wouldn’t be the case with yours truly. If I ever put one of those babies on my head, I’d look like an extra from the Three Musketeers! Fun fact: as a kid, I wanted to be a musketeer, or an American Gladiator.

Anyway, the actual point of this post is – I love Rachel Bilson’s outfit, and I want to be able to wear hats without feeling self-conscious and awkward. Is that too much to ask? Is it? IS IT?

What do you think of Rachel’s outfit? Like? Hate? So-so? Want to challenge me to an American-Gladiators-styles duel ? Let me know in the comments.
