Tracy Reese SS14

Nothing gets me more excited about something than music.  It just changes your whole attitude/demeanor, right?  That’s exactly what happened when I sat down at Trace Reese’s SS14 fashion show.  To the left of the runway, bongos were set up, so you knew there would be live music.  And above the runway? A gorgeous chandelier.  I mean, if those two things don’t put you in a good mood, I don’t know what will.  Well, actually, I do. As the gentleman started to play the bongos, models began strutting down the runway and look after look was just gorgeous.  The collection was filled with Afro-Cuban inspirations that just made you want to order up a mojito and start dancing.  With lace trumpet skirts and flouncy dresses, Reese showed a more sultrier side to her designs than in collections past.  She mixed feminine with boyish/athletic pieces.  Tilted fedora's added some spice and flare to the collection.  And for Michelle Obama (a fan of Reese’s designs), and the other ladies who adore her signature fit and flare dresses, don’t fret, there are still plenty of those for spring.  From graphic prints, florals and even gorgeous tapestry-like patterns, you will have more than enough options to choose from for every spring event you have on your calendar.  My favorite looks are below.
