No, you don't need to have your eyes examined--Lela Rose's blurry plaids, "obscured" taffeta and splotched gauze and silk pieces are deliberately out of focus, all part of a diaphanous collection inspired by the work of contemporary artist Gerhard Richter. 

A wool overcoat had a band of hazy blue mohair at the at the hem, and delicate, slipped-off-one-shoulder cocktail dresses hugged the gifure in all the right places, cinched on the hip, one with a pattern of pencil smudges, in smoky grays. 

Shoe lovers will also appreciate the latest in a long line of collections for Payless--including the Allerton shoe (a blurred plaid cotton canvas Mary Jane) and the Madison bootie (wih flannel detail).
