Oh Rodarte. You never fail to intrigue me with your steadily evolving collections. I think personally that this season's clothes are...more raw? I don't know, Rodarte's inspiration has always been from different sources, but you could tell that this collection was more woodland/childhood themed, with wood prints and lots of contrasting layers.
And finally, something to contrast the woody vibe! Preppy seems like something that's in one collection or another, or so the style.com's "get the look" button tells me. This look is like Rodarte for people who want something more "wearable", to over use that term. I like the pattern on the pants, and just the simplicity of a shirt+pants combo.
I don't know if I like this collection more than previous ones, but for sure, there were a lot of interesting looks in this collection. And as always, Rodarte never fails to wow me with their shoes. (Seriously, go find a picture of their amazing wedges. You must!)
Also: This week is Banned Books Week and No-Makeup Week. I never wear makeup anyway, so that one is easy. I love banned books, though, because I am in love with the idea of free thinking. And anti-establishment. In fact, we're going to be reading one such controversial book next week!
