Stella McCartney has always been an all time favorite of mine - as both a person and a designer. I appreciate her subdued feminine aesthetic and continually work towards recreating the sharp, tailored extras that provide a bit more edge to the lace and dainty details of some of her RTW. Ms. McCartney's Fall 2009 Collection was certainly no exception, proving that a little bit of lace goes a long, long way. I certainly haven't been one to shy away from a garment due to the price tag, but this was the first collection (with singular looks or pieces) that I could rationalize spending over 3K for. I know it sounds like a lot of money - but to me, it's an investment of a lifetime.
