Erin Fetherston F/W '10

Before the Erin Fetherston show started, I heard the head PR girl telling everyone that is someone "looked like the belong, to let them in." Well, I wasn't on the list and definitely had issues getting in, I guess I don't look tall and fur swaddled enough, sniff!Managing to overcome my hurt feelings, I got some shots of Whitney Port, Tennessee Thomas of The Like, and Karen Elson before the show started.The collection kept true to its uber-feminine aesthetic, and was inspired by the NY Chelsea girl in the 70's. A couple of the pieces, ruffled and poet sleeved, felt a little too '70s boho to me, but I really enjoyed her chic orange chiffon frocks and songbird prints. I also found her black and lace stripes and metallic copper wool to be just the right touch of sass. My favorite was a strapless silk pink dress with dot devore fabric peeking out - just the right mix of sweet and spice! Will they let me in next season if I wear this??
