Tracy Reese Adds Pop and Sparkle to Sporty

Tracy Reese always puts on a beautiful show and her Spring 2012 collection rocked as expected. But before I wax poetically about the clothes, I must make mention of the celebrity presence as I sat across from Angela Basett, June Ambrose and Iesha Tyler. But enough about the A-list audience. We loved these Spring clothes because of the retro meets now appeal especially the tissue-thin floral jumpsuits and strapless hot pink and turquoise one-piece bathingsuits. If Tracy Reese's stylists have a say, big hair rules! That's cool. Some maxi dresses Reese accessorized with hats and she paired boxy, mid-thigh length safari shorts with glittering, off the shoulder tops, an unexpected, but beautiful twist on Reese's easy to wear theme. She mixed sheer fabrics with light sweaters so this layered collection can be worn from late March through August, and then again in fall. Parasols and matching maxi dresses with lingerie detailing were a hit. Colorful. Classy. Elegant. Sporty. Tracy Reese did it again.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
