I love Tory Burch for her laid back, yet glamorous style. Inspired by her world travels, Tory always incorporates elements of far away culture into her designs that are fun and playful, yet retain an air of sophistication.

With a color palette ranging from classic tones to bright tie dye and floral patterns, Tory Burch is a all about looking sexy and polished.

Tory Burch Spring 2013

For her Spring 2013 Presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Tory Burch chose to have her models in simple make-up and wearing a look I absolutely love this season – a side fish braid!

“Spring 2013 is about the American prep remix. We were thinking about a stylish magpie who picks up special pieces while traveling around the world and always mixes them with classic sportswear.” — Tory

On her blog, Tory Burch has a post about Nian Fish the Model Whisperer, who kept the models inspired backstage at her show. Nian offered a sort of poem which contains some interesting words that I certainly related to like the very specific line  “You’re about to travel around the world…With your boyfriend! Go!”

Um, did Nian Fish read my mind or is traveling the world with your boyfriend just a common theme right now?  Either way, it struck a chord and made me smile and isn’t that the point – for fashion to make you happy and feeling inspired? I think so.
