Pre-Fall 2013 Collections: My Favorites From Elie Tahari

Gals, let it be known that I am a HUGE fan of designing genius Elie Tahari. Like, BIG TIME fan.

Laser-cut leather. So soft it feels and moves like a t-shirt. GORGEOUS.

My personal moment with Mr. Tahari came courtesy of an event held for the Soho store launch last year. Now, in all honesty, sometimes attending these events where people want to dress you up like a Barbie doll can be scary. Like, terrifying? Why? Well, when you’re not a sample size, the expectation of coming out of the dressing room with people staring at you in expectation is a bit daunting. After losing about 45 lbs at that point, I was scared senseless nothing would flatter me.

Cut to the event and I slipped into a pair of wildly-amazing red wool trousers, in which looked like a million dollars. I still have them – and my eternal love – for this incredible designer to this day. I loved them so much I went back to purchase another pair.

Can we talk about this amazing skirt? CAN WE?!?

So, when I got the invite to attend a showing of his Pre-Fall 2013 collection (which will hit stores in June/July 2013,) I packed the camera immediately and headed straight for the showroom.

How much do you love these beautiful, bright colors?

Slightly obsessed with the lovely beaded chiffon swing top.

I won’t belabor his incredible talents. I won’t drone on and on about how amazing the clothes are. I’ll just let them speak for themselves.

I love the full zipper in the front of this dress, and the shape is endlessly flattering.

Here are some photos of some of my favorite items I think ALL of us should buy when they hit stores next year. Enjoy the snaps, ladies and gents. 🙂

All three pairs, please. Metallic snakeskin, gorgeous and flattering shape. Love.

I’m going to need to see someone about these ponyhair and leather ankle boots.

So pretty and flattering. Love his dresses.
