pre fall fashions - hit & miss list

yay. I really like pre-fall fashions, mainly because it's extremely interesting to see what designers have in store for us this fall. Plus, it's great from the usual -spring clothes- in the brisk cold fall type of thing, which in this case, is actually clothes in weather where you would NEED warm clothes. make any sense?

LOVELOVELOVE-Jason Wu / He's one of my favorite designers. This is the first time he's worked with leather, so all the pieces should be pretty much a piece of living inspiration. And this particular dress is my favorite. It's very girlish, with the short hemmed dress, but just take a look at the gunmetal-ness of it all! I want this dress so bad, you don't even know...

Rag & Bone / another favorite designer brand of mine. I like their more colorful pieces, like the blue-ish dress a model wore at the Met Ball a while back, but this piece is pretty cool, you have to say. Their whole collection is all tight pants, basic top, but it was based on their consumers. Being veryyyy ready-to-wear and useful was a key in their collection.

Caroline Herrera / Finally, some color! Herrera herself said that she wanted it light, airy, fun, and more, with inspiration from the TWENTIES. that's right, the TWENTIES! [I just watched Singin' In the Rain, best. costuming. EVER.] I love this so much, veryveryvery chic.

MHMMMM-Narcisco Rodriguez / This outfit is boring, I don't like a lot. A lot of his other stuff was kinda boring, blah, put perfect for wrinkly librarians. I also don't think the shape of this outfit really suits anybody.

Zero + Maria Cornejo / Let's get straight to the point- honestly, who is going to wear it? I do give major kudos to it for being unique, but I personally think it's just working here. Not many celebrities or just consumers, really, want to wear a baggy dress.


P.S. What do you think of all these outfits, collections, styles, etc?

Singin' in the Rain--- best costumes in my opinion after the Devil Wears Prada. Didn't you just love "Beautiful Girls"?

These are great. Especially the color.
