FROM THE MIND OF CHRIS BENZ = HE REINVENTS THE PREPPY LOOK WITH A LITTLE QUIRK!


There aren't many collections that I can see myself wearing almost every piece, but this truly comes close, yes even the ruffled shorts!!




I admire how he takes the classic staples of business and adds a twist to it, the asymmetrical button down cardigan, the belted tank dress and the double breasted blazer are perfect examples of this.





My favorite piece is definitely the green dress, the peek a boo back makes this a perfect holiday dress. The fact that he chose to make it green makes me think that this dress could have been inspired by the lovely trees in the beautiful northwest, he is from here after all.

The green dress is my fave too. What's with that oversize blazer? Too '80s for me. I lived it the first time around, ya know?

OMG I NEED that green dress. Please. Green is my favorite color, and that open back is one of my fave details of clothing ever (if you don't believe me, revisit the IFB Dress Up Soirée Photo Album)!
