The pursuit of cute, full skirts (with pockets!) has brought me to this beauty by Rachel Zoe. The short and full silhouette is fun and flirty, and the simple color-way makes it easy to mix and match. I’ve found myself drawn to Rachel Zoe’s line recently, probably for a few reasons. First, she’s a blazer girl, and I can relate. Second, she’s based in LA, which gives me a bit of hometown pride. Not too long ago, LA fashion was epitomized by brands like American Apparel (which icks me out on many levels…Dov Charney…those ads…eww), so it’s refreshing to see some actual style associated to LA that’s not of the spandex or silicone variety.
I love that LA fashion is having a moment right now. Thanks to Bravo and their back-to-back-to-back lineup of The Rachel Zoe Project, It’s a Brad Brad World, and Dukes of Melrose, the Los Angeles fashion scene is getting some attention (even if it’s a bit comedic). And probably the biggest fashion industry shocker…Hedi Slimane, the new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent (now just called Saint Laurent), one of the industry’s most important French fashion houses, has snubbed both Paris and New York as his city of choice, staying instead in Los Angeles. Now we just need to get a decent fashion week going, and LA will be looking pretty stylish.
