these are a few of my favorite things: fall 2009!

fashion week starts in two days and i am soooooooo excited! i'm going to do my best, as i always do, to bring you great coverage and commentary of all of the fashion weeks: ny, paris, london and milan. i know there are tons of other fashion blogs out there, but i love fashion just as much as any other fashion junkie and i just love writing about it. thank you to the regulars who always leave me comments! you are all so sweet, i wish the world was full of people like you, hahahaha :)

anyway, every season i post a collection of items that i am looking forward to wearing. hopefully from these collages you are able to gauge my sense of style (since i don't do outfit posts) and i also hope you too like the pieces that i'm going ga ga over.

as everyone and their dog knows, every girl/woman needs to have that perfect little black dress. good old uncle karl over at fendi as reworked the classic item for us and produced the utterly magnificent fendi technical taffeta dress. i love the collar, the demure yet sexy plunging neckline, the cap sleeves, the length and the texture of the dress. the back of the dress is even better with a row of tiny buttons going down half of the spine. this dress is utterly timeless and can be worn again and again with the same dazzling effect.

fendi also produced a fun bustier top that could easily be paired with skinny jeans, wideleg jeans, bootcut jeans or a pencil skirt or swooshy slightly a-line skirt for an ace look. i absolutely love the sleeves on that blouse! and i am sooooo in love with the chloe polka dots leather bag. i've never seen anything like it. of course i've seen tiny shoulder envelope bags, but none with such a cute droppy bow detail adorned with gold polka dots! so chloe, and oh so me.

oh, and do you spy those $500 bijoux heart empire gold plated garland earrings? so beautiful! feel free to post it over to me anytime you like ;)

i love christian louboutin. such a shoe mastermind. i also love ankle booties. the circus 120 cutout boots that were featured in roland mouret's fall 2009 fashion show earlier this year caught my eyes immediately, and i predicted they would be popular. on the netaporter site i got a closer look at them and realized that between the black detail are nude colored mesh panels. i'm slightly disappointed at that. depending on your skintone those mesh panels could show up (unless you're pale/fair), but nevertheless i am still in love with the craftmanship of those shoes! the globe 100 suede boots are so delicious. i love their grey hue, their smoothe and warm suede texture and the slash detailing on the shoe itself. to die for!

if you don't have loubou money i would suggest trying out some cream/nude colored pointy stilettos and studded ankle strap flats, such as the ones i fell in love with from pink ice.

isn't the alexander mcqueen faithful leather glove clutch so kitschy, cute and classy all at once? that's a bag that you could wear for years. i absolutely love it. there is no way anyone can snatch your clutch from you with that nifty design. i can't wait to see mr. mcqueen's fashion week show!

okay, so i know vera wang princess was released a while ago, and the initial craze for it is over. she has come out with a new version of the fragrance called rock princess and let me tell you, i am in love with both scents. absolutely crazy about them. i really want to get vera wang princess. the bottle is so pretty and it's purply lilacy shade. i also eventually want to get rock princess. i am obsessed with good smells. there are so many perfumes i want to get. juicy couture, viva la juicy, the vera wang princess scents, calvin klein euphoria, stella mccartney sheer, missoni acqua...the list goes on and on. and i still love my hilary duff with love scent!

i FINALLY got a leather jacket. i'm getting another one soon. i'm going to try and wear them as much as possible. the tough zip jacket from pinkice is a good option. if you have a pay/half store near you they have great leather jacket options for under $30.

the beautiful diane von furstenberg arista sequined tank top would look great under a leather jacket or alone for fall.

along with the items i mentioned above i'm also loving medium sized rings such as the toasty floral ring (it's leather!) from pink ice as well as sequin berets (i tried one on and i looked so fab in it) as well as huge handbags/shoulder bags.

what are you looking forward to wearing this fall?

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.
