Fall 2011 Favorites / 5 Things I Learned at NY Fashion Week


Ahh Milly........there is only one word for the first look: Perfection. The styling is amazing; the button details on the high waisted trousers, the blouse with it's ruffles and sheer panel on the belly and of course the spectacular color palette. Swoon!  Why else do I love Milly? Um hello? Do you see what I see? ....Culottes!! These particular beauties are made of cashmere corduroy. Doesn't that sound like the most comfortable and luxurious thing one could wear? I've already begun to imagine how amazing they will could feel.

Rachel Roy was one of my favorites.  This was a playful collection of textures, layering and coziness.  It felt like it was designed right after a trip to Nepal. I particularly like the braids  atop the models heads....which was seen in several shows and presentations for Fall 2011.

Four looks from four other shows I saw.  Full maxi skirts were all over the runway...not so sure I'm hopping aboard that train but I say that now.  I could be "swooning" over full floor length skirts this time next year.  Stranger things have happened.  Below are other looks I found worthy of my world famous blog.


Love the oversized blazer. Love the green plaid. My first born to the girl who can pull off this look.

5 Things I learned at NY Fashion Week.

1. Style trumps fashionability....but I still love insultingly expensive handbags.
2. Always bring your iPhone charger with you when spending days/nights in don't want to take the wrong subway back to the "wrong" part of Brooklyn and have no way of getting in touch with the friend you are staying with.
3. Not all NYC taxi drivers know their way around the other boroughs...but there are lovely, patient NYC taxi drivers who will use the GPS on their phone to get you where you need to go.
4.Under eye dark circles are BEST concealed by yellow based drug store concealer. Thanks Fran:)
5. I am one blessed and edgy maven.
