thinking about fall...

i'm completely in fall mode now. i'm going crazy though, because i have so many ideas but no sewing machine! i had a bit of free time today so i felt compelled to create some collages of some of my favorite looks from fall.

i think the one fall collection that i am obsessed with is givenchy. perfection for me-in terms of what i wish i could wear. the lace- my god the lace- that blouse or dress needs to be mine- someway, somehow... even that weird olive-ish coloured ruffled bib blouse- sooo pretty but tough in a way too. i want it all! leather pants? yes please! orthopedic velcro-strapped wedges? you know i want 'em! ruffled off shoulder blouse- gimme!

ysl is just gorgeous to look at. i don't know how much it will influence or translate into my own wardrobe, but it is pleasing to look at. the leather coat, the two tone blazer, the white blouse with almost leg-of-mutton sleeves... and the shoes are beautiful- those platform pumps and boots with oversized openings...

rick owens is a no brainer for me. the layers, leather, fur... check, check, check... something notable to consider is shorts over leather leggings...

i can't wait to start layering again...

it's winter here. so layering before I go out is the only option!

I know Canadian summers are insanely short ( hello Edmonton! ) so I know you will be layering in no time.

ah ysl + givenchy = pure love.

one of my favorites is haider ackermann... the leather leggings and chiffon layers are the perfect delicate/tough combo.

lisa- i know! we complain about the rain and then it's summer and we complain about the heat!

fawn lust- yes! i love that collection too! i got really tired and lazy to make any more collages last night though. i would kill for a pair of those leggings.

Great selection! I have not found anything with lace yet, it will be a tough one to pull off. Layering in Vancouver ?? It's a must :)

what about hair trends for the winter, Stephanie? I would love to read a post on that :)

I'm very inspired by all the shoes you listed too, probably due to the fact i'm a black obsessive. Talking of ruffles, lace etc i saw a beautiful chemise at Balenciaga today totally delicate and very beautiful, and i'm not normally tempted by things like that.....

Btw don't know if you've seen the Babylon Acne dress but i love it and have it, the pics on the site do not do it justice, it was love at first site in the store!!!

e.- hmm... i don't really pay much attention to hair or beauty trends, so i don't know... i will think about it though- thanks for the suggestion :)

xax- i know- i'm not usually a lace or ruffles kind of girl, but that givenchy collection has changed my mind! your acne babylon dress looks so great on you! you're making me want it even more now!
