I have two critical questions after seeing the latest Fall Collection from New York’s recent Fashion Week:
“Is it Fall 2012 yet?”
“Can someone please make me a gadzillionaire already!”
Here’s some of the pieces that stood out for me from the designer’s Ready to Wear Collections:
Elizabeth and James
Remember when Michelle Tanner got all growned up, became two people and started a high end collection I regularly lust over at Holt Renfrew? Crazy stuff, non?
Not going to lie, I wasn’t entirely wowed by Elizabeth and James’ collection like I was expecting to be, but I’ve been all over pleated skirts as of about a month ago, so I’m obviously all over the look below:
Alice and Olivia
Another collection I like drooling over while at Holt Renfrew. It usually strikes my eye because it’s one of the rare designers I can actually afford (though I suspect this was because I used to get a very generous discount. tear!) Again, wasn’t impressed with the Fall 2012 collection as a lot of the pieces seemed like something you’ll be able to buy a knock-off of at Forever 21, however I did fall in love with the two dresses below. Perfect for any occasion, I’d wear those babies everywhere.
OMG! SO MUCH LEATHER I AM SO IN LOVE!!!!
If there is one thing that could motivate me to lose 40lbs, it’s someone telling me that if I lost all my body fat, they’d buy me Helmut Lang’s entire Fall 2012 Collection. Done and done. All I need know is an investor. My favourite pieces below:
How can one collection be a smorgasboard of things so hideous (more on this later) and also so absolutely stunning. Mind is blown. Someone buy me these four looks:
This winter wonderfland ice-queen thing the Badley Mischka collection has going on for them is beautiful. If I were a celebrity, I’d definitely be getting my publicists and stylists to give them a call about the following dresses for insert award show here:
Band of Outsiders
This western-themed hot-babe-cowgirl inspired look is totally badass and totally hot. I would obviously style that dress a teensy bit different by, ahem, putting on a bra (because omg how are those breasts of hers doing what they’re doing without any sort of anything holding them up like that?!) but it is absolutely beautiful, and the sweater and orange pant piece is something I’m saving up for because I NEED IT SO BADLY, darn it!
Rag and Bone
Because how can you even associate beautiful autumn colours and walking in the fresh breezy air, with your feet crunching down on the freshly fallen leaves without picturing yourself wearing anything but Rag and Bone?! swoon.
