NYFW Part 2: Alice & Olivia Spring Summer 2013 NYFW Presentation by Stacey Bendet

After I made my way To The Gem Hotel after a sassy veggie wrap, I spent a few hours catching up on work in my bed. After a while, I realized I'd been working for far too long and something must be wrong. Oops! Wrong time zone. I did not catch that my laptop did not adjust like my phone, and nearly missed (or so I thought) my next runway show! Checking the ticket again, I realized it was a presentation. I ended up making it to Alice & Olivia just in time.... to wait in line for a bit and chat with Keiko Lynn about her upcoming trip to Saint Louis Fashion Week.

I digress.

Once we made it in, we discovered a whimsical exhibition of Alive & Olivia's SS14 Collection. Stacey Bendet was being photographed to the west of the entrance hour nearly a hour, and I enjoyed a custom cocktail and made note of faces I recognized while on my way to view.

The collection was beautiful. I am really smitten with the white short suit, Stacey's demure version of the cropped tank and the formal-inspired maxis. It was really perfect for Alive & Olivia SS14! So excited for the season...

The formal wear was less my aesthetic, but darling none the less. Delicate lace with leather details is so Sandy of a 17 year old prom-girl. And maybe an actress or two could make it work as well. (It really is beautiful!)

But, these skirts stole my heart. Mainly because pairing it with a polo and that adorable model was genius, and I'm jealous I didn't do it first - but we all know it wouldn't have looked quite like that.

Which look was your favorite? Really though, if you had to select just ONE piece. What would it be?
