f/w 2012

I know everyone is getting in the mood for spring.  But the fall/winter 2012 collections have just been shown, and I just always love the palette and clothing of the cooler seasons.  Here are some of the looks that caught my eye.  All the photos are from Vogue.

Loved the retro looks and collars on the deep plum and mustard dresses (these were also shown in a deep red and cream).  The skirt on the last dress--gah!

I don't really see myself as a Kors type (he makes me think of fake tans and furry boots), but if you're going to show plaid, lace, and fur collared coats, sir, I'm all over it!

Unsurprisingly, this collection reminded me (in avery good way) of how I dressed (or aspired to dress) in the 1990s.  Great prints, love the boxy jacket, copper polka dots, boots with everything.  But the thing I love most, I think, is the plaid skirt, plain top, dark frames.

Pant and fair isle sweater vests paired for the "at my country house" look.  The knickers are so cute.  I'd never wear them again (yes, I did, once...), but they look great on the model.

Love the print on that first dress, the striped skirts, and the bow belts.  Lovely coats, too.



  1. So many gorgeous fall collections! I can't get enough of them!
    The Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren are two of my favourites you show here. And that plaid skirt combo with those glasses and boots! Hell yes!

  2. I've been hearing a lot about this Ralph Lauren collection. Too bad jodhpurs and plus-fours are so difficult to pull off! Darn hips...

  3. I really feel like this is Ralph Lauren's best collection in a very long time. Of course, what that actually means is that *I* like it better than his work of the past 10 years or so! Talk about an easy look to do in vintage! This is it.

    I'm also loving the Marc collection, which is surprising because he usually leaves me cold.

  4. nice group you have rounded up here...looks like Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren really hit the fashion nail on the head this time around! and we should be looking for bow belts soon? Seriously, I love all these vintage references (at least we can rest assured that our vintage favorites will be OK to wear into next year).
