fall09 reflections of the past

as has everyone else, i've lately been checking out the spring summer 2010 runways. who isn't?

but instead of getting me all excited for the future, which it has don't get me wrong, i've been thinking back to the fall collections for inspiration for the cold months ahead (there's at least 8 of them!)

i also think its strange how when i go back over all the photos that i saved from previous seasons, i don't love everything i loved 6 months ago. i know that makes sense, because personal style is always evolving, but its definitely interesting. some of the looks i saved now seem really boring because everyone has been wearing them for the last few months, and others seem stupid because no-one is.

i went through all the photos of all the runways and saved my favorites to show you guys. i actually printed them out on photo paper and stuck them to my wall for inspiration.

i am definitely going to have to buy some knee high socks and start wearing them, before that becomes a big high street trend, and everyone is wearing them...and i can't decide about the whole fur debate (not faux vs real; it would always be faux for me). i'm not sure that anyone should wear it? and if they do how it doesn't look tacky. help me out on this one...

anyways, moving on. these aquascutum ensembles are so gorgeous i can't even say.

the dsquared2 collection made me want to yell YEESS! It was so spot on. And 100% wearable. I want the twins to dress me always.

marc by marc jacobs was so heritage. the prints were divinely vintage inspired. the hats were cute. i want to live in outfits like these this winter.

others worth mentioning:
- anna sui was every bit the rock and roll legend as always, though this time with feathery beanies
- michael kors neutral dress with tan accessories. the neckline was divine.
- nanette lepore - this designer does not get enough respect. perfect colors, perfect lines.
- rodarte - AMAZING. its actually wearable art.
thanks to for all the photos and perfect inspirational browsing...
