I'd never heard of Lela Rose prior to getting an e-mail from Payless touting her Payless line. The Payless shoes are nice looking...
But, frankly, I didn't think they were anything special. I think Abaeté line is more interesting. So I decided to check out her Spring 2008 ready to wear line to see what it was like.
I was pleasantly surprised....
(I admit that this one could be problematical if your hips aren't just right. But if the are - the tailoring on this one is amazing!)
I love the scallop work on her skirts in this collection! It's a sophisticated take on girly without the frills - I like that! It's perfect for the 50+ gal!
I've seen laser cuts used on paper goods - greeting cards, etc. - but never before on dresses. And these are simply beautiful.
On my just invented hanger rating of 1 - 5: 4 hangers to Lela R! I will definitely be looking forward to her Fall 2009 collection!
