Zac Posen Pre Fall

"The dresses are just AMAZING." gushed Leah.
"Gorgous, you need to see them, the Pre Fall Zac Posen Collection."
Leah isnt the type that cares ever so slightly about the latest runway shows, so hearing this from her assured me, this had to be good.
And For once, Leah was right. I loved the dresses, the whole collection was lovely.
Zac said the theme of his collection was "poodle ballet" that already sounds amazing to me, but the way he did it, it wasnt too strange, puffy, or "poodly" But the colors, the ideas, they where all simple, wearable, but still high fashion.
A few of my favorite looks:

This dress, in a way, reminds me of the Jessica Mcclintock dresses all the aberzombies wear to prom, but it catches my eye in a way those dresses dont. Maybe its the colors, or the thought and detail put into it, that you wone be getting on a $100 dress. It like a prom dress, but upgraded.

Wow. This top, this top is just so, wow. The colors are beautiful together, and very random, not used much elsewhere in the collection. Which i like. It looks almost like she is a "forest fairy" with leaves drped over her chest. Very different compared to the charcoal greys we expect from spring [like in the Akris Collection ]
And although i cant afford it, i have a good feeling that before i know it, forever21 will have their own version of this top.

When i think of fall, i think of, cold breezes, chilly nights, and what better for a time like that, than this adorable look? It looks extremely comfy, like a wool sweatshirt, but still fashionable. the Perfect blend.

here we go, a soft ballerina pink. on a simple satin dress, with totally awesome details. It almost reminds me of something Jackie Kennedy/ Jackie O would have worn. And the little bow in the middle is just the icing on the cake [or should I say bow on the present?]

My favorite of the collection. simple, elegant, a little bit funky. what more can we ask for? Without the coverup, it would be bit dull, but the coverup with the sheer, matador type sleeves really shakes things up.

Overall collection rating: 9 [loved it, but could get a little too plain]
