This season I was too busy to jetset to New York to get a bird's eye view of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week's Spring 2012 collections. This is precisely why I have been a cyber slowpoke with runway reports. If I don't see them live, I don't wannatalkaboutit. It's like writing a review of a super cool concert I never saw. Bratty as it may sound, I am jealous of all the folks sitting front row and center, taking my seat and my bag of schwag. It makes me depressed.

Personal feelings aside... I did have a moment to sneak in video of the Tracy Reese Spring 2012 show and took notes, like you care. You have no doubt gotten your MB Fashion Week fix elsewhere. It's okay, you style snooze you lose.

Although the show marked the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, Reese brought a bit of brevity and good spirits to the Lincoln Center tents, injecting cheerful color and lightheartedness with flirty and feminine frocks, parasols, girlie hats tilted askew, pretty palazzo jumpsuits, lace edged shorts and retro one-pieced bathing suits suitable for Esther Williams herself.

I can't report firsthand, but I'm willing to bet that Tracy's grin-producing floral patterns, stripes, happy hues and time capsule-like collection helped to at least ease the somber mood felt by international fashionistas and native New Yorkers alike, who were in a tent just miles away from Ground Zero.

Celebrities Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Aisha Tyler were there. I was not. {Sigh}.
