I think this may be my favorite grouping of your roundups. I'm really loving just how pretty and feminine each of these collections are in their own way. I especially like the softness of Badgeley Mischka.

Paolita@BerryHaute said...

Been a little disappointed I just haven't had a chance to follow FW this time around,
then the thought dawned on me...... I bet Sam has been going through every look and curating the Collections.
Sure enough..... as good as ever.
I kinda like the abundance of stripes, seems like every so often they come back with a bang, and they are always well welcomed.

Hope all is well, hun!

Gabriela and Chris said...

Adeola Naomi said...

I think I have a very specific style... definitely Packham and Mischka in this group. I love the colors, the silhouettes
