Each section had its own highlights. A swirling kaleidoscope pattern looked great on both a short belted shift and a longer sundress. Wearstler is promising to turn the print into a wallpaper. A silk jacquard coat faintly shimmered like the inside of an oyster. And in the dragonfly group, Wearstler showed a sweet black dress with net insets through which you could see her first attempt at underpinnings. You'll see Wearstler sporting that look in Malibu. In between there were nice-fitting overdyed jeans and faux leather skinnies that will win repeat customers. The padded shoulders on the T-shirts were a bit much, but happily they're detachable. Wearstler's confidence is on the uptick.
