STLFW Night #2: Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue

Being a thrifty girl, designer clothing is typically something that I admire from afar, aside from the occasional amazing find at a resale or vintage store. So, it was an extra-special treat to see a runway show from internationally-renowned designer Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue! The fashion show even raised over $8,000 for the St. Louis Fashion Fund. While sipping Skinnygirl Wines cocktails, my girls and I checked out a few of her designs. Even though we have different styles, we each saw pieces in the collection that we would welcome in our wardrobes. Rebecca's seemingly effortless way of pulling together inspiration from a multitude of trends made the showcase a visual pleasure. She featured tribal and floral patterns, playful jumpsuits and rompers, and sophisticated silhouettes. I've never been a fan of sporty styles, but the clever pairing of sporty accents like mesh or stripes with edgy, colorful patterns may have signing up for spring training this year! Here were my wish-list outfits from the show. Which looks are your faves?
