Vampy - This is an odd look to be attracted to after I've repeatedly mentioned wanting to explore more bright and flirty outfits, but what can I say when it comes to dark clothing I can't stay away. Plus after reading Dracula can you really blame me? (from left to right - Tadashi Soji, Zimmermann, Alice + Olivia)
Sweaters - If I'm being completely honest most of what I see on the runway is just vague inspiration because I know I'm going to be wearing sweaters practically everyday for 3 months. I'll spice up my winter uniform this year by playing with colors, graphics, and asymmetry. (L to R - Alexander Wang, Lacoste, Opening Ceremony, Thakoon)
Thigh high boots - I've always wanted thigh high boots but never really had a reason to get them. I feel like this will most likely be my impractical splurge of the season. (L to R - Cynthia Rowley, Herver Ledger, Alexander Wang)
Fur Coat - Every year towards the end of winter I finally figure out what kind of coat I want for winter time. This year it's a fur coat. They always look so cozy. (L to R - Band of Outsiders, Milly)
Last time I only picked one show that was going to be an overall inspiration, but I had a little trouble picking one this season. So I decided just to choose all of them.
I already new that I was going to be attracted to the DKNY show because the massive amount of black clothing. I especially love the coats and the relaxed feel of all the outfits. I'm curious to see whether I can work some leather and orange color into my wardrobe. Plus it was interesting and different for half the cast to be well known new yorkers as well as people pulled of the streets.
This show was one of the only ones that appealed to my girly side. The dresses and tight and cuteness of it all was great but not too feminine for my taste.
There is always going to be a little part of me that wants to dress completely from the preppy handbook. That's just how I grew up. Opening Ceremony lets me easily fall back into button ups under sweaters, stripes, and the occasional unexpected graphics.
I can't really pin point why I practically liked this show. The outfits just seemed to have that effortless cool factor that I always want to achieve, but never think about enough to actual work towards it. I guess I'll just keep it in the back of my mind.
