When I worked Designer & Couture apparel for a nanosecond at Neiman Marcus I could usually be found drooling over the Temperley dresses. I’m a sucker for girlie embellished frocks and beautiful fine knit dresses. So I was a little disappointed. Where were the goods? Alice Tempereley showed a dizzying amount of day wear, handbags and belts which quite frankly, could have been anyone. I love a great handbag as much as the next gal, but bring on the glamor and glitz! It’s Fashion Week. Give the people what they want!
