I must admit, I find that the the pieces are quintessentially Stella - the lace, rounded shoulders and tailored, crisp edges were shown in Stella McCartney's resort 2011 collection. Also, the quality of the fabrics is impressive- the magenta dress is a silk/cotton blend, the trousers are pure wool and the lace on the lace dress is cotton. I would not have minded paying the original prices for these fairly well constructed, designer pieces, but then knowing that they would be ultimately heavily reduced gave me the patience to wait.
* Sorry for the dodgy photos, Melbourne has been so overcast lately. Also, it didn't help that I took those photos indoors with even poorer natural lighting!
