I always do my best to stay in the loop on new designers and new lines. Considering the amount of time I spend on the internet (too. much.) and paging through magazines, I’d like to think I do a pretty good job of that. However, I’m always so thrilled when I receive an email or blog comment from a reader or PR company introducing me to something – or somebody – new. (It’s one of my favorite parts of having a blog.) That was the case with Troubadour. This new-to-me line is designed by FIT grad Lindsey Carter (she was previously a designer for Madewell, so you know she’s got a good eye.). I took a peek through the fall collection and instantly loved the the classic, feminine feel. The designer has an eye for mixing prints and patterns. This dress was one of my favorites for that very reason. The color palette is simple (blues and grays), but she’s masterfully mixed two very different prints together – and it totally works. I can’t wait to see what Carter is cooking up for the spring season.
