Absolutely Bahhnanas

Last Wednesday, I was invited by Neiman Marcus to attend a private Rachel Zoe Fall 2011 Collection presentation, co-hosted by Ken Downings and the ever so fabulous Ms. Rachel Zoe. Upon seeing the collection in person, I fell in love with it all over again. Each piece encompassed the signature Rachel Zoe bohemian couture spirit. Well-tailored wide legged trousers, hippie-esque blouses and maxi dresses, and razzle bedazzled sequined dresses flooded the intimate and circular runway of Neiman's third floor.

While listening to Rachel Zoe's entertaining, down to earth and extremely conversational narration choked full of Rachel-isms, I realized that this woman's passion for fashion is undoubtedly genuine and utterly on another level. Everyone, she is the real deal. Once the presentation concluded, Rachel stayed for another hour-mingling with guests, sharing style tips and taking pictures with her fashion minions. I left Neiman's feeling inspired and on fashion cloud nine.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the Rachel Zoe Fall 2011 Collection

This is the perfect business suit. Seeing it actually made me wish I worked in a formal corporate environment.
The quintessential boho dress. I would wear it when feeling too lazy to accessorize but still want to look fabulous 
It doesn't get any more Hollywood than a structured cape complimented with a pair of fierce ankle boots and dark oversized shades
The Audrey Ankle Boots are TO DIE! I was so sad they were sold out of my size.
Baby Skyler makes an appearance! Daddy Rodger was also nearby.
The boots look painful but who wears over the knee boots for comfort anyway?
I'm obsessed with these wide leg trousers. "Legs for days" was what RZ said about them
A standout sequined jacket and dress combo

Very Chanel, don't you think?
This was one of the most popular pieces of the night. I love that it's a coat/entire outfit in one.
simple, elegant, and a versatile party dress.
