louis vuitton s/s 2012

Editor's comments: There really is no better way to say au revoir to Fashion Week than with Marc Jacobs, Jessica Stam, Kate Moss AND the city of Paris, is there? Beautiful show. The carousel in the background was a whimsical, lovely touch. I'm obsessed with the flowers. They look plastic, but I can't be too sure. 

Until next Fashion Week! 


miu miu s/s 2012

Editor's comments: The show I've been waiting for. Not my FAVORITE Miu Miu collection ever, but I still love it. I love the lace pieces (that cape? HELLO?) and the knee highs. Miu Miu is the whimsical little sister of Prada. Also, the red eye makeup is pretty sweet and something I've always wanted to try.

valentino s/s 2012

Editor's comments: Romantic florals, mauves and filigree white leather. LOVE. I cannot wait to see leather maxi skirts and dresses in the spring, which is what most Paris Fashion Week designers have promised so far.

alexander mcqueen s/s 2012

Editor's comments: Lovely is an understatement, but these swan-like dresses were that and more. The Byzantine accents were stunning and classic McQueen, along with the elegant lace-like headpieces. I love what Sarah Burton has brought to the brand. 

chanel s/s 2012

Editor's comments: This collection was so ethereal and angelic. The colors were very sweet and muted, with the occasional pops of peach, tan and mint green (AMAZING). I loved the underwater theme as well. It was so serene and pretty. The classic Chanel tweed jackets and dresses were given a twist with some geometric prints, which were pretty awesome.

Miu Miu glitter booties- Net-a-porter
Super opaque tights - American Apparel
Miu Miu wool felt tote - Net-a-porter

costume national s/s 2012

Editor's comments: I can't say I wear too much bubble gum pink, but, man, am I drawn to it like no other. My eye just always goes right to it, so naturally the pieces in this collection I loved were the pink and cobalt blue colorblocked dresses and vests. 

yves saint laurent s/s 2012

Editor's comments: GORGEOUS mint green. I was obsessed with the first looks in the show. I love the crazy '80s style statement belts. Side note: it's crazy how practically unrecognizable Arizona Muse is without her bold brows. 

stella mccartney s/s 2012

Editor's comments: The LWD (little white dress) was equally important for Stella McCartney in this collection. What I love most about her designs is that they seem like they are so comfortable. They're unfussy, clean and totally wearable...if you can afford it.
