Spring 2011 Fashion Week-Lela Rose

Lela Rose's Spring 2011 collection may have been an homage to the vibrant culture and clothing and colorful handicrafts of Lima, Peru but in my mind, the collection was designed personally for me. I am in love. Every dress, sweater, top, gown, accessory had my name written all over it. The vibrancy of the colors used was perfect: rich tangerines, hot marbled pinks, shocking yellows and foamy jades dominated the collection. Each outfit is perfectly accessorized with beaded strands, Aztec belts, and oversize bib necklaces. I'm also in love with the gorgeous strappy sandals. Some accessories were even from her latest Payless collection. Beware: I will knock someone over to get my hands on these treasures when they come out. The ultra-feminine outfits had such interesting hem and necklines, patterns and fabrics. Overall the collection was a delight and a real inspiration for my spring wardrobe.

SKINCARE: Skincare line ARCONA for prepped the skin and made sure the models looked flawless. The skin was hydrated and prepped for the fresh makeup look with ARCONA moisturizers and mists (all which have delicious scents to them) to give the models a dewy, fresh look. I've just discovered the ARCONA and am loving their fragrant and effective skin treatments. The treatments used helped enhance the skin and bring out the glow, quality and elasticity of the skin.
