New York Fashion Week. I’ll probably never go and that’s probably a good thing. I think I’d totally freak out over a) what to wear and b) how to act. I’d likely have a nervous breakdown due to all the excitement. And make a complete fool of myself. And not pay attention to anything actually happening on the runway. However, I do LOVE sitting at home and looking at the photos from some of my favorite designers. I go back and forth from “Yes, I could actually wear that!” to “Gah! When will I be famous enough to attend a dress-worth event?!?!”
Keep in mind, I’m not a fashion writer. Unless I’m making fun of celebrity fashion, of course. I just like pretty clothes.
Naeem Khan has been a favorite of mine since last year. I loved the bright accent colors in some of the pieces and especially loved the funky jewelry.
I’d probably go on a cruise again just to wear this. On second thought, maybe a private yacht would be better.
The dress is beautiful, but I’m pretty sure the necklace makes this look. And her pretty hair, obvi.
Marchesa is what I always say I’d wear every single time I hit the red carpet. If I was the kind of person who hit red carpets. This collection wasn’t my all-time favorite, but I’m obsessed with this one-shoulder nude rosette dress. And I don’t think I’d have to wait for any red carpet invitation to wear it.
Birthday present? Please?
I might wait for the red carpet for this one. But I have a feeling someone else will beat me to it. I can’t wait to see who.
This is one of my top 3 favorites. My two fave dresses are clearly not the most wearable dresses, but that’s not what all of this is about. I just love how feminine and ruffly they all are. Swoon.
Seriously? Smile girl! You’re in the prettiest dress ever. Gosh.
I’ve never loved Monique Lhuillier so much as I do right now. Can you tell I have a bit of a thing for the rosette/ruffly look this season? It’s a problem because it’s a bit too fancy for my lifestyle, but I’m dying to get my hands on something like this.
The color, the fit, everything about this dress makes me feel all tingly. Monique said the inspiration for this collection was the “Garden of Eden.” Yes, yes, yes. I can’t even find the words.
Now this is a dress I could wear to a wedding, no problem.
All I have to say about Elie Tahari is that I WANT THIS JACKET. Right. Now. I would wear this every day of my life. Love. And I’m pretty sure no imitation would do.
What can I say– I love metallics and sequins.
I have a thing for the feminine simplicity of Matthew Williamson. There’s just nothing not to like about these dresses and I’d be quite happy to try them on and take them for a test run.
I love this style dress and the colors (which, in general, are so not me). I tend to drown in silk, so I love the belt holding everything together.
I can’t get over this belted v-neck dress. Cocktail hour, anyone?
It’s not like I don’t have enough similar coats, but this belted trench just screams luxury safari to me (is that possible?). Could be the hat. But the trench is beautiful.
Another dress that begs a red carpet event invite. Or a ball. Just something fancy. Please?
Jenny Packham just found her newest fan. All I can say about this dress is that it’s stunning. Out of control stunning. And that skirt is so me.
Oh hey Peter Sorn, it’s barely even fall here, and you’re already getting me super excited for spring. I’d wear this dancing around my neighborhood. That works, right?
There were many, many, many more. But I need to stop somewhere. Now I’m going to sit back and cry over the beauty of everything. And my inability to purchase any of them. But, if that Elie Tahari jacket somehow made its way over to me, all would be forgiven.
See? I do Fashion Week SO much better from my couch. (P.S. I’m wearing sweat pants and a hot pink cardigan).
