Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear Collections

Once again, it's time for the Fall ready-to-wear collections to be shown in NYC (and also in London). I would love attend the spectacle that is fashion week. I don't care what season or which designers - I just want to go!

I'm currently trying to make my way through the collections from the shows this week and I must say, it's quite a time-consuming task! I'm hoping to post my favorite looks from select designers, but for now, you can take a gander yourselves... here and here

So far I am in love with this Rebecca Taylor dress and it's one of the few things I could actually pull off and see myself owning. This bright plumy/fuchsia color has been a favorite of mine for the past few years now. I also adore the ruffly flowery details and the flowy drape of the dress.

Off the Cuff

I am loving this Erickson Beamon for Target jeweled cuff. At $59.99 its a total steal compared to their regular line which runs $400+. I may just have to make a quick Target run in the midst of my packing for Maui (I leave early Monday morning). This would be the perfect accessory for the rosy pink frilly dress I'm wearing to the wedding and I could most certainly wear it time and time again.

Can't Wait!

As I mentioned earlier, I am leaving for Hawaii in two short weeks! I started packing quite a while ago and think about six days of relaxing in the sun with friends about 20x a day!

Miu Miu for moi!

I am in love with these jeweled Miu Miu flats. They're simply gorge! Unfortunately they're not available any more. I think my next search will be for a similar pair.

Stylish Sandals

As I'm gearing up for my trip to Hawaii in two weeks (yay!), I am hunting for flat sandals. Some that are fashionable, comfortable and not traditional rubber flip flops. I also don't look very good in the full-on ankle strap gladiator sandals, although I always think they're cute before I put them on. I've found a TON of other styles that I adore...embellished, beaded, leather, strappy, suede, metallic, colorful, afforable and also quite pricey. You name it, I've found them and I want them. Below are just a few of the many.

I am usually pretty good at technological stuff and figuring things out, but I am at a loss - I don't know why my blog won't show it's updates on other peoples' blog roll. It has my most recent posting as one from last May. I know I've been slacking, but I have posted since then. Do I need to do something with the site feed or with Feed Burner? The updates show in Google Reader, but not on my follower's sites. Its driving me nuts! Help a sister out, please!
