BCBG Max Azria Spring 2013: Harnessed In.

Most of my favorite looks are the ones that escaped the harness.  It can look like a bit of an afterthought and probably has a lot of buyers begging the question 'it can be removed, right?'

I've been pretty impressed with BCBG in the last few seasons.  The label has really come into its own with a more grown-up and fashion forward style.  HOWEVER, are the harnesses a bit 'try too hard'?  Every review I read references freaking '50 Shades of Grey' and that alone makes me annoyed...but I also love all the dresses.  Someone once said take one accessory off before leaving the house and in all cases of this show, it's the leather harness.  Typical.
