obviously, ann taylor has consistently churned out extensive collection for the past few seasons that i’ve been attending its previews. the holiday 2012 collection is no different and while it was really weird for me to look at a classic winter wonderland setting of christmas trees and holiday gifts while i was sweating in 90+ degree heat, the palette of black, red, and blue really had me psyched for chillier weather. the retailer has really thrown out great accessories and the chunky, art deco-like jewelry was particularly note-worthy. also, can i get a moment with that red petal blouse? i mean.
