I knew yesterday's Tracy Reese show would be madness, but Ms. Reese and her people have always been good to SheFinds, providing us with seats and goodie bags at the past few shows. Unfortunately, this time, I was abruptly directed to the standing room line. Tracy, what happened? But that's ok, because while in line for 40 minutes, I was able to check out what my fellow standing fashionistas were wearing. And the one big trend at Tracy Reese — belts. From sweaters to dresses to jackets, ladies were belting anything they could get their hands on.
Once inside I could peer out from my third tier standing position at the front row and catch glimpses of Fern Mallis, who looked underwhelmed, Miss J Alexander, who left his afro at home, and Brandy who — as NYMag pointed out– was quite giddy (maybe tipsy?) throughout the show.
My favorite front row outfit was worn by this one unidentifited woman, who left before I could snap a photo: an oversized white bow tie blouse and crisp black blazer. It was more brilliant than the clothes walking down the runway.
