I'm not sure why, but in all of my extended browsing of the Fall 2014 collections on Style.com, I never really gave much thought to Stella McCartney. I scanned it once and never revisited - my routine for collections that aren't season-after-season favorites - even though Stella consistently ranks somewhere in my top ten. The other day, though, I just so happened to click on one of those tailored-to-you based on crap you've looked at in the past banner ads for Nordstrom, where I eventually made my way to the fall Stella pre-orders. For some reason, the collection was so much more appealing in a retail format, and I instantly became enamored of a matching mélange knit sweater and skirt, a look that I have been obsessing over since sourcing material for this post. It's like a light bulb went off and all of a sudden, I couldn't get enough of the collection - the insane knits, the sexy minimalist fringe dresses, and THE starry flatform oxfords. My favorite look from the show is Look 21 - a matching wool sweater and trouser combo in emerald and black. This is the look I am most craving for fall - a two-piece knit paired with statement accessories, including a timeless (with a twist) top handle.
