Fall 2012 - Rick Owens + Shopping List

As much as I'm not minding the warm weather of summer, autumn and winter are really more my thing, so I can't wait to start wearing more layers. I've already made most of my purchases for fall, collecting things throughout the spring and summer.

I only have a few more pieces to pick up over the course of the a/w seasons:

- sweater dress
- knit beanie
- wool cape
- light grey long sleeve t-shirt

Stretch leather leggings are eternally on my wish list for autumn/winter. I've toyed with the idea of some low-cost options, but deep down I really don't want to compromise, and should probably start saving up for the elastic-waist Ann Demeulemeester version. They are exactly what I want: super soft, thin leather, elastic waistband, stretchy, and long legs to allow for a bit of stacking. The only thing that is holding me back is the price, obviously. Sometimes at the end of the season you can find a pair on sale, but mostly they sell out.

I can't really afford most in-season pieces until they go on sale, but I am in love with the buffalo plaid coats from Rick Owens as well. I think it would be easy to integrate one with my existing pieces, and it would provide a little graphic pop to my otherwise monochromatic wardrobe. Plus, I can never say no to new coats and jackets- I simply love outerwear.

I'm also intrigued by the knit face mask slash beanie hybrid (only available at Luisa Via Roma so far), but not sure if I could pull it off! It's a lot of look.

I noticed that with leather leggings, too. The good ones sell out at full (or slightly discounted) price.
I too saw that RO masked cap on Very tempting but...hmm..
