no more fashion shows until paris – promise.

antonio berardi – f/w – 2011

Friday, February 25th, 2011

last season, i was introduced to the antonio berardi collection ( you know – by simply clicking on a random designer i hadn’t heard of on style.com ) and liked it so much that i made a point to find him again. although this collection is very different from what he showed last season – i love how it has evolved. the black and navy lace – paired with neon green shoes – actually really inspiring. i also love the coats. it seems like everyone is doing their version of a big – boxy – fur coat – and his, the long gray number with ‘patchwork-esq’ placed fur (i think it is layered over another jacket) is a great interpretation that might not leave us feeling like a big rectangle.

burberry prorsum – f/w – 2011

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

uhhhh what’s with the lack of separates in this collection? i mean – yes, it is about winter, so the emphasis on outerwear is sensible – but i mean, really? really, really? it’s like that was all there was. even so, i did manage to find a few furry coats that are sure to keep someone warm when the snow comes a-fallin’.

erdem – f/w – 2011

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

definitely not as feminine as spring – which is to be expected – but i love it never the less. i really love the idea of printed tops paired with printed trousers or long skirts. even though it all matches – it doesn’t looks boring.

mulberry – f/w – 2011

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

didn’t care for their ready-to-wear last season, but mulberry sure did step it up – channeling a cool british girl vibe. i love the printed dresses – felted jackets – and most of all the simple sheer-ish long black dress at the end. nothing revolutionary – but still very nice.

maybe the perfect gift for someone you know

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

on the hunt for the perfect wedding gift for a friend who recently got married – i ran into this amazing serving tray by michael angrove, a UK based artist and designer, at gretel. i love that for less than $50 you can give a beautiful, memorable gift that is also a functional statement piece. still unclear if this will be the gift for my friend – some people have a severe dislike for butterflies as decoration ( i think the tramp stamp was probably the beginning of the decline for the butterfly ) and i don’t know if she is one of them – but a great gift for someone, nonetheless.

the row – fall/winter – 2011

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

seriously impressed with this collection by the row. the line is known for its minimalist point of view – putting quality and construction before trends – which is great – but they’ve been doing it since the line first debuted – so mixing it up with a few bold colors and FUR – was so refreshing. i also LOVE those leopard slippers featured in a few of the looks – a collaboration with TOMS Shoes. even better, they’re retailing at 150! if you can get your hands on a pair, they’re a steal of a deal – sure to get tons of editorial credits, and will probably sell out before they ever reach store shelves.

rodarte – fall/winter – 2011 + beauty

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

i cannot stop thinking about this collection. it’s is the most i’ve been inspired this season.. in such a good way. i love the color scheme. i love the quilt inspired sweaters and dresses. and i love the dressed with custom prairie plain landscapes. just as much as the clothes, i love the beauty. i don’t even mind that it is super similar to last season – it actually makes me love it even more because i LOVED last season’s beauty too. the side parted, messy chic bed head – with the little braids, and fan inspired brass hair pins – WOW. and the make up – hues of red clay, silvery blue, and gray. matchy nails and lips have never looked so good. i’m even thinking about coloring my hair that light brownish-reddish-blondish color a few of the models are wearing. i’ve been an extreme whitish blonde for a year or so now and i’m feeling a change is in my future.

rachel comey – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

what isn’t rachel comey known for… every season i fall for her prints.. her knits.. her amazing shoes.. even her quirky styling. i admit – i would probably never wear some of the combination this woman masterminds – but i always love taking a closer look and noticing the blouse under the sweater – or the little ties here or there. as a fashion conscious shopper, i also appreciate that her style never strays too far each season. so i know if i splurge on a pair of wooden soled shoes – they’ll be back on her runway the next season and probably the season after that.. making handing over a hard earned chunk of change hurt not so badly.. at lease that’s what i tell myself.

diane von furstenberg – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

i thought this collection was alot harder than most dvf shows. i love all the black – that dress with the oversized polka dot dress – wow i would have never expected that from her. even the more commercial color blocked looks – especially the one with the amazing fur green jacket – looks more european than south beach. and how about the red sequin dress – that hue of red is unexpected and uber chic – cannot wait to see who wears that dress on the red carpet. finally. i just love this photo of the two designers – especially Yvan Mispelaere and his little red brooch – so many times adorable – and even better – i feel a diy project coming on.

preen – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

how do they mix navy and orange and not make it look sporty – so good! those cubist prints are amazing too – simply want a sweater please. i also love how they have continued exploring this architectural mini skirt over skirt thing – i believe style bubble called it a ‘pelmet skirt,’ so we will too. i think it just gives so much interest and shape to their looks. finally – how can we not talk about that bead work – so tough, yet intricate, soft and pretty.

bodkin – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

a different version of this asymmetrical dress, it was from la garconne, in the first look is what got me hooked on bodkin. now i love them for their boyish fit, and that hat – how it just sits on top of her head – pouf-ed like whatever – i just put this on – and i know it looks a little like a cone – but i like it. i mean – that’s what i would say if it were my hat..

costello tagliapietra – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

i consistently love these guys. first, the colors are amazing. i mean the first orange dress – that orange is so vibrant and happy and just exudes confidence. and then the unexpected white jacket/pant combo with that hue of fur quirk-ily decorating the chest with the over-sized hat – and the lipstick – can-not-get-over-it. i also loved, loved, loved the steel blue, long sleeve dress that looks so effortlessly cool. i mean – come on – you have to just love how the dress wraps around the neck, makes your arms look long and lean, and then just floats, effortlessly everywhere else. love.

jason wu – fall/winter – 2011

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

i never jumped on the jason wu train when everyone else did. in my place in life, i don’t have a need for princess dresses – i guess they just didn’t interest me that much. but when a friend suggested i check out the collection, i was so surprised to find a cool, sophisticated collection that any girl would love to own a piece of! i mean – maybe, i mean definitely – a lot of the separates reminds me of phillip lim about 4 seasons ago – or i can’t help but think of the black and tan sweater isabel marant did this fall – look 22 oh and stella did one too – look 2- but i guess….. a striped sweater doesn’t really count right – because everyone needs a striped sweater.. right… right.
needless to say – i’ll be tuning in next fall to see what jason wu churns out.

perfectly tied up in a pretty little bow. also- i love that the ends aren’t cut symmetrically – which lends this look a more down to earth attitude. i’m feeling this for spring, no?
