The weather has cooled down here in the Mid-Atlantic and I’m feeling relieved. I’ve been able to open my windows and enjoy some fresh air without being overwhelmed by the humidity. It’s also made me excited about the fact that Fall is finally manifesting itself- and fall cloths will soon follow.
I really associate sunglasses with Fall- which might seem a little odd to some people but makes perfect sense to me.
They’re the last thing you throw on before going off to run a million errands but they can so easily complete an outfit.
These picks are from the Linda Farrow Luxe line available at Net-A-Porter and would set me back a pretty penny but I just can’t help lusting after them. The Vintage line is also very, very, delectable!
And as long as I’m sharing things that I lust after. I can’t stop thinking about this leather jacket by Rick Owens (I posted about it a few days ago on HoneyCrate). I still don’t feel 100% okay wearing leather but this jacket seems so perfect for Fall. So soft and comfy! Maybe I can find a suitable knockoff of the faux leather variety.
More from London Fashion Week:
- Eley Kishimoto: Great fun but I would have preferred some of the dresses to have a more defined waistline- the smock dress can sometimes border on maternity wear for the average wearer.
- Jaeger London: It was wearable and I liked that. Sarah Mower, who reviewed the collection for Style.com, was not blown away by the collection. She hinted at the fact that Jaeger London might not make it into the reduced lineup (4days only!) at London Fashion Week next year because it is too commercial. I suppose because I am an average gal, the commercial aspects of the show didn’t bother me. I like what I like.
- Aquascutum: I really loved the looks that I selected from this collection (above) but will admit that the collection made it to my favorites because I was happy to see so many of my favorite models walk this runway. It’s nice to see that Aquascutum featured so many beautiful women of color!
I borderline hated Louise Goldin. And it really pains me to say that. I’m usually so impressed with her work (knitwear!!) but I just did not connect with her futuristic motif. I suppose that happens to me a lot- I have a low tolerance for futuristic designs as they often appear too space age for me and I start to think of them too much as costumes. The only thing that saved the collection, for my personal taste at least, was the jumpsuit that I pictured above. I’m not even sure what draws me to that- I would never wear it (not flattering) but it manages to intrigue me.
Any favorites from London thus far?
