I want a feather necklace and Godiva chocolates.

Oscar de la Renta. Fall 2010.

To me, Oscar de la Renta pieces represent the utmost elegance. They make me think of sophistication and luxury. Of the powerful and successful Upper East Sider. Of influential and respectable women. Of attending best universities and social elitism. It's almost royal. You just can't go wrong wearing one of his designs.

Madonna. Angelina. And Marilyn?

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2010.

I personally don't like it. Actually, the only thing that I truly loved were the fringed shoes and a dress. That's all. Everything else was either too simple, or too over-loaded(too shiny or too printed). There were these two extremes and none of them suited me.

Take these two for example. An example of badly used material. I can't help but think of that purple dress as a glimmered body-suit, like the ones ice-skaters wear and how probably, someone looked at it and said 'Oh wait, what if we put a darker coloured sheet over it? Wouldn't that make a gorgeous dress?' Well...I'd say no to that. And then that someone would say 'Stop! You're an eye-opener. We'll make it a one-shoulder sheet.' Yeah...I'll say no to that too.

Gorgeous, right? I don't think so. That pink dress is beyond my understanding. And the print in the second picture, something is just wrong with it. I get the point that everybody is now crazy about the leopard print, but who said an all giraffe print suit would work?

Isn't that cool? They used the leftover material from the coat's sleeves to make shorts. Nice! Imagine walking down the street wearing the coat and then standing at the stoplight next to a woman who wears the shorts. It must be a great experience. Let's not be mean, I actually liked the coat, but the picture on the right made me give it a second thought.

Done with the criticizing. These are the looks I actually did like. I'm crazy about the green shoes and I like how it all bonds in the picture on the left. Yes. That would be all.

Sass and Bide. Fall 2010. RTW.

Black and White. Prints and Patterns. Stripes and Cut-Outs. Studs and Feathers. Oh, and Sea Shells. Silver and Gold. Lace and Leather. Fabulous and Fashionable. That's all I've got to say. The pictures speak for themselves.

Next is...Mulberry.

I loved Mulberry's Fall collection for oh so many reasons. I loved it from head to toe, from the first piece to the last. Models walking dogs on the runway was a great idea. Those pugs strutted their stuff, almost stealing the models' spotlight. And they had matching outfits! Using bright bright orange and bright bright blue was another great idea. Those colors just...well...they brighten my day! More lovin'->that puffed up, exaggerated hairdo! Yes, I'm a fan. Also, the delicate sewn hearts, on cardigans or scarves, were making the outfits just more lovable. It's details like those which make the difference. So, enjoy!

Vivienne Westwood.

I keep seeing Fall 2010 collections and I couldn't resist posting some of my favourites, but also criticizing a bit. Although it's not even spring yet and I should be actually focusing on the S/S collections, I just had to. They're everywhere. I need to say what I think.
So, first is Vivienne Westwood. She is sometimes much too flashy for my taste, but for this fall, she has designed some pieces that I don't just like. I totally love them! She went just to the limit. My limit. Of flashiness. So I find them perfect. And I'm gonna share!

This one above is my ultimate favourite! x

And maybe I kind of hate this tacky blue bag and the checkered leg-warmers and I dislike the shoes. Or I could just say that I like it from head to skirt. **i'm talking about the one above, on the left.
Anyway, it's one of Vivienne's collections in which I love more than just one piece, so I currently have a high regard for her.
