Oh You Fancy, Huh?

Friday, February 25, 2011

Oh how things have changed in a year. Last February I spent my days and nights outside the tents of Bryant Park during Fashion Week. Hearing the bumps of the music from the shows through my hotel window. This year, I’m living in the suburbs, knocking on 30’s door and putting on my Sunday best pitching a tent in my living room (I kid).

Drooling over the fall 2011 looks, I picked out my favorites.

Prabal Gurung• I die. DIE. The collar on the red/black combo, the potential red carpet dress and finally, the PINK COAT. AUGH!

Jason Wu• I would bet that Mrs. O liked this collection just as much as I did. I can see her in any of these Wu looks.

Jill Stuart & Charlotte Ronson
• I felt both of these looks were very wearable – right off the runway.

Victoria Beckham, Lela Rose, Nicole Miller
• I will call this group the wearable women.
• Watch this look from Victoria Beckham. The sweater / sweatshirt combo with a skirt beginning to trend – starting with spring 2011.
• Love the Lela Rose dress pairing with the knee socks.
• I’m seeing a lot of asymmetrical necklines! I enjoy the colors of this Nicole Miller.

Lace, Sparkle and Fringe…Oh, My!
