The colors are rich and pattern and shine are plentiful. Lipstick is dark and shoes are metallic. I kind of like the overall tone, even if it seems ornate and taking itself quite seriously, with full-on shiny glam.
And who can escape the charm of shined-up equestrian chic? You can go on a date straight from your afternoon horseback ride, just kick off your riding boots...
But seriously, I quite like the looks. I am all for dark costume dramas. I just don't lust after individual pieces. Either I already own them (navy blazers, tweed capris, leopard), or find them very hard to pull off personally (hello rug print sweaters). I would wear the shoes, but I feel like I can find more comfort for the price.
Too bad I could not wear the lilac shade. But it still works, I admit.
Another monochromatic look that I am digging. Love it, in fact. However, I can try to recreate it with what I already own. The multicolor Biennal is quite fetching, too.
OK, I do want that sweater. Looks super cozy and comfortable. Would go with everything. Hope this is not made from acrylic blend.
I hate the shoes, sorry. I also never cared for the tipped hacking blazers. Well, I lied. I bought them twice and sold both. And nobody would convince me to wear shorts with my blazers. Especially in the winter. But I like the blouse. I think this is a cami and I can already see it with my blue and burgundy pieces.
Overall, I am glad to see the deep color mix and that the burgundy is not going away. Neither are the patterned capris but still, I am not convinced I should get them.
In the end I decided I need two items: metallic heels and bold flowered blouse. Not necessarily from J.Crew.
That's all folks!
What's your take on the Fall 2013 collection?
