designer crush: lela rose


(lela rose with her doggie)
Lela Rose's spring line is just absolutely to die for. It makes me wish, even more than I already do, that I had some fabulous and formal parties to attend in the near future. The colors, the fabrics and the embellishments are exactly my style.

Yellow and pale gray have been a favorite color combination of mine for a while and these pieces are the hundredth reason why! The cut of this jacket is just fabulous and when paired with that delicate shimmering skirt is nothing less than drop dead gorgeous.

And these midnight blue numbers are just perfectly unexpected and completely classy.


And how beautiful are the embellishments on this dress and jacket? Downright luxurious!

And she also has a very sweet and softer side that is perfect for a little afternoon tea or summer wedding. If you can't tell already-I am completely smitten and wouldn't mind waking up to a closet full of her clothes.

Her bridesmaid line through Dessy Group is super fun, too. I've been eyeing one of the dresses for my shower, but at $300, I don't know if I can justify it! There aren't too many events I could wear it to in Steamboat!

I adore that saphire jacket. It is just beautiful. The grey and yellow one-shoulder dress is also adorable.

Great finds.

So I am in love with the color and style of that first dress-so so pretty! Looks like I've got another designer crush!

Abbie, I am with you. Living in Jackson going out to a nice dinner just requires changing out of ski clothes and putting on jeans...sigh.

I have never heard of her- great post! I love the soft pink dress at the end. I could easily wear that.

You should totally create your own event so you can wear stylish clothes instead of wishing you had somewhere to go!
Those blue lela rose dresses are hot, and the yellow jacket stylish. Maybe a wine party or a dress up party. I think it's acceptable to ask guests to show up once in a while in more than just jeans. :)

The cut of that bottom right dress is so perfect - I'll take one in every color. stat.

I was so smitten with her Spring 09 show, and I love each piece you posted! I think I would happily fill my closet with them all!!
