Harveys?  I'm too in love with their collection. 

The husband and wife design team Dana and Melanie Harvey are the masterminds behind this ultra-feminine line.  Their mission is to "fill a void in the marketplace with all things pink and girly", and with their fall collection they more than succeeded.


Ladies dare I say it?  You know what, I dare.  After being witness to Harvey's Fashion show, pink is the color to pair with everything. I know some of you scoff at wearing pink in autumn and winter, but the rosy hue is perfect for brightening up the winter doldrums. 

 


Their entire collection had a tri-color palette:  charcoal grey, bubble-gum pink, in addition to the always classic black.  Everybody's touting the return of the little black dress; I'm saying it never left.  Ever since Audrey Hepburn wowed us with a simple black sheath dress and a string of pearls, never has something so simple been so darn perfect.


The little black dress is equivalent to a beautiful sunset, or chocolate-dipped strawberries, most ladies don't want to do without it including this one.


Thankfully Harveys is taking this classic one step forward.  There were thirty-six outfits in all, of both the quirky and elegant vein.  She paired white tanks with bed jackets and black velvet cigarette pants, ruffle-trimmed nighties with gabardine tuxedo trousers, elegant little black dresses with strappy stilettos, wool herringbone Âcuffed trousers with silk chiffon tops, and doorman coats which reminded me of the romantic costumes in the film The French Lieutenant's Woman. 


Last but not least the trend of the pencil skirt is not going away, Harveys has created some lovely knee-length pencil skirts to be paired with her adorable ruffled and cropped cardigans.  If you yearn for the "sexy secretary" vibe in your wardrobe, Harveys can deliver.
