New York Fashion Week is in full swing! Today marks day 5 out of the 7 day fashion extravaganza. Among the amazing shows shown thus far, there’s one in particular that’s still forefront in my mind – Jill Stuart’s Spring 2012 Collection!

   Jill Stuart stirred up a mean cocktail of rainbow brights & sherbet pastels that bring out our inner little girl!fashion mixology
