Hair bumps were all the rage at the Whitney Eve Fall 2011 runway show, which was held on March 14 in Los Angeles. And as a whole, the sorta-eponymous collection was ALL Whitney Port. Like, if we spotted The City-alum rocking the distressed legging/mini-harem(?) pants and multicolored one-shoulder top from her fall line while sipping an ice coffee in Bev. Hills, we wouldn’t be surprised. As a matter of fact, we can see the 26-year-old designer wearing EVERYTHING from her new Africa-inspired collection. Seriously—tube dresses, wrap minis, knotted maxis…that’s Whitney all day! But, surprise (or not so much) she’s no stranger to being her own No. 1 fan—that cute striped, one-button blazer that she wore during the show was from her Spring 2011 collection. Walking advertisement. The thing we love about the line is that it’s vibrant, well-cut and seriously wearable. And given that it’s a fairly new brand, the likelihood of someone else wearing the EXACT patterned wrap dress is slim. Plus, the price point is decent (with discount codes regularly updated on their Facebook page), and we just have to respect a small company like this that already has a direct e-commerce element to its site WITH a fair return policy. Thanks, girl. LOVE YOU; MEAN IT.
