Talkin' With Tracy

A Note from Jessie:
This past Wednesday evening, Sarah and I had the pleasure of attending the Tracy Reese Spring 2009 Press Preview at her boutique in the Meet Packing District. The event was absolutely amazing, tagged with a running theme of "Coney Island Circus Chic." From the decorations of candy-striped fabric panels, to the hors d'ourves of cotton candy and fresh pop-corn, to the attire of those assisting at the event from the boutique staff, all aspects were aligned and prim for presentation. Sarah and I had the amazing opportunity to spend a few minutes chatting with Miss Reese herself, discussing her inspiration for the collection, and her personal favorite pieces, one of which she was wearing, quite stylishly I might add, as a hounds tooth drop-waist jumper'ette. Her bright red lip really made a powerful statement as compared with the more severe tones of her ensemble, and she looked absolutely beaming all in all. One of the boutique assistants, Noah, really stuck out as a vibrant, vivacious and outgoing character. He spent a great deal of time chatting with us throughout the evening, and helped us select a few garments to try on towards the end. As a design graduate from FIDM in Los Angeles, and an aspiring NYC designer extraordinaire, Noah really pumped extra personality into the event. His personal style was fabulous as well, as you can see from our candid shot of him above.
The event lasted from 6:00pm - 8:30pm, and at the close of the night, I felt not only soo lucky to have attended, but incredibly inspired by the new carnivalle collection. Pieces from her current line can be found at stores such as Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales, so be sure to check them out, and score some amazing outfits while the product is still on the shelves. And don't forget to check out Tracy's site for a complete listing of all her current products at
