I've finally moved in at Emerson and have been meaning to post my latest inspiration since I've been here. I was absolutely smitten with Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall 2011 collection, and loved that it was a mixture of rock n’ roll meets 1970’s vintage. It being only her second clothing collection, she did a marvelous job translating the vibe of her handbags into ready-to-wear pieces. One of my favorite aspects of her show was the outerwear that incorporated luxurious furs, smooth leathers, and metallic twill. I am also a huge fan of her diverse dress silhouettes, from bellowing chiffon to fitted jersey; I could see myself living in all of them! Here are the looks from her collection and things I would hope to do while wearing them.
