Fashion Week Recap

{ Thursday, September 16, 2010 }
School has taken precedence over me obsessing over the runways this season- not fair! However, I've taken the time to pick out a two of my favorite looks thanks to the runway reports at

Marc Jacobs spring 2011

I love, love, love the use of pinks and purples for the spring! It's a great departure from the cliche creams, pastels, and floral prints that are expected of the season. Marc Jacobs uses a variety of fabrics as well, from structured, ruffled textiles to sleek, smooth satins. As you can see in the last picture, elegant rompers are obviously going to stick around for another season.

Anna Sui spring 2011

Sui never disappoints with her beautiful, folksy dresses and ornate headpieces. One day I will be the proud owner of one of her one-of-a-kind frocks. The sunglasses line is also noteworthy- I'm loving the retro frames.

Although I'm not a huge fan of runway couture, I admire the artistic quality of the designer's work. I'm much more of a mixed medium girl- wearing designer heels with distressed jeans or a boyish blazer over a feminine dress. I've never been a slave to the runways and never will be, but it sure is fun to think about wearing priceless gowns and one-of-a-kind pieces, isn't it?
