Puritan Chic?

* Edited to add:  After writing this scathing review, I did go back to look at the collection again and saw a few pieces that weren't half bad. Still, odd on the whole.

I totally get fashion. I have been working in the field for over four years and have had a love affair with it for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, certain collections baffle me with their "I think I get it but I really don't" quality. Enter The Row by Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. With equal parts prairie princess and "seriously, wtf?" The Row's Resort 2011 collection has confused me with its stark puritanical overtones and what I'm just going to refer to as an austere aesthetic for lack of better words. Though Style.com calls the collection's quirks "divine little details," I beg to differ. Not exactly what I imagine myself lounging in at a resort. See for yourself...
