Lovely Lanvin…

So like I mentioned before, I’m kind of behind in looking at shows, but I’m pushing through.  I’ll catch up soon.

I’ve decided I don’t want to just post pictures of shows because I know the people who are interested have seen them before and I haven’t looked in to anything that’s not on Style.com yet.

But I haaad to post pictures from the Lanvin show, because they blew my mind.  So so so gorgeous.  I especially love the details and the jewelry and the shoes.

Lanvin s10 1

Pretty quilting.  The dress is so simple, but elegant, and all the chunky jewelry adds so much flavor, I love it.

Lanvin s10

A much more interesting alternative to a suit.  Obviously not quite right for work since the skirt is short, but the jacket is great.  And again, the jewelry!  It gives a nice edge…

Lanvin s10 5

lovely lovely lovely… great colors, great shapes!

Lanvin s10 4

I like the straps, it doesn’t feel too bondage-y, but it still has a toughness and chicness.

Lanvin s10 10

I’ve never been a jumpsuit fan, but this one i like a lot, very interesting.

so great, the colors are very neutral, but with the sparkles and bling and jewelry, it’s all amazing. Continue reading

Fashion Week!

So, I’m not ready to comment fully on fashion week or specific collections, but here are some images I saved from shows that I wish I were wearing right now…  (apparently I’m craving stripes and trench coats)

What I Wish I Were Wearing

Unfortunately, I’ve been working so many hours recently that I never have time to post here, wear fun things or really do anything other than sleep and work.

So here are some things I’d like to wear if I weren’t working all the time.

visual notes

Visual notes/thoughts on clothes/looks/styles for summer.  AKA my thoughts on getting dressed these days.  Also a wish-list of sorts

unknown 5

(I scanned, but I’m not sure from where, sorry) great basics for summer – simple shapes, light colors.  Looks great.  The bottom could be pants, shorts or a skirt and it would be equally as wonderful.

unknown 4

(again I scanned this from a French magazine, but I’m not sure which one) A more complicated summer look – the blazer is definitely too much for where I live, but still cute. I’m closer to embracing athletic apparel in non-athletic situations, but it’s been slow.

shopbopamericancrop

(from ShopBop.com’s lookbook) very nice and simple.  Ever since I saw Coco avant Chanel I’ve been searching for a great striped shirt.  This one from Rag & Bone on Shopbop.com is $115 – more than I’d like to spend on a basic piece like that.  Pretty, though.  Shorts are great too.

3.1 Phillip Lim resort 2010 3

(from Style.com) 3.1 Phillip Lim 2010 resort – I looooooove the jacket, and the skirt, and the shirt… ok, I just love.

jenni kayne resort 2010

(also from Style.com) Jenni Kayne resort 2010 – great colors and a great way to toughen up a sweet little dress/skirt.  I’m not sure how I feel about the lack of collar on the jacket, but I definitely like the general idea.

It’s nice to dream, but mostly it’s too hot to wear anything interesting.  My first concern is not melting and the second is looking good, and the third is not freezing in air conditioning.  Oh well, soon it will be winter and I’ll be wishing it were summer…

Torn out of a magazine, but I don’t remember which one… sorry – if you know, please comment and let me know

elle drew barrymore

Elle US – either this month’s or last month, the one with Drew Barrymore on the cover…

mood

Again, sorry, tore it out and didn’t note where it’s from. Basically I wish I were her, she looks like she’s enjoying being at the beach (plus she has great hair) and I’m stuck in a hot sweaty city…

So I’m wrapping up my year in Paris which means packing, studying and visiting things and places.  So I feel kind of like this:

But pretty soon I’ll get to do things like this:

I believe this is from FotoDecadent, I named the file Michael Oats, so I’m guessing he’s the photographer
