Fall 2012 Ready to Wear Favorites

The Fall 2012 RTW collections were really incredible this year, but these are some of my favorite designers and pieces.

My absolute favorite designer this season was Marni. I love the 1960's, architectural shapes, and the way the focus was not so much patterns, but the drape and choice of fabrics and the gold accents. Gorgeous.
The shoes!

I'm not always a huge fan of the amount of layering Missoni does, but there were a couple of pieces that were stunning in this collection.
I love the leather paneled pants and the bohemian coats and accessories.

I'm a huge fan of the Chloé collection. Smart, sporty, and sophisticated with just the right touch of flirty femininity.
The last two pieces are from See by Chloé, their new debut sister collection. More accessories, more affordable, love it. Flowy, drapey, feminine, minimal. Everything I love about Chloé, except maybe now I can buy it someday. ;)

Kenzo is always just so fun to look at.
The pants! The jackets! I'm in love. Sporty and hip, but also retro and sophisticated. Great cuts, awesome shapes. I want that tiger sweater sooo bad.

Last but certainly not least was Rodarte. The tailoring was perfection, very pretty, 1940's. In a word, I would describe this collection as poetic.
Fun fact: the sister designers heavily researched aboriginal art and the Australian landscape to inspire them to create this collection.

Rose Bowl Flea Market

I have been back in the California sun for 2 weeks now and find myself generously soaking up the warmth from its rays as well as the warmth of all my dear friends and family that I have missed so much. There is nothing like the comfort of old friends to cheer you up.
Speaking of old friends, my dear friend Jennifer from Portland moved down to San Diego to go to the Gemology Institute and we reunited for an adventure this weekend.
We went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena where my eyes were barraged with beautiful furniture, stylish people, awesome furs, and we even saw Gisele Bundchen shopping for antiques. (sorry for the low quality camera phone pictures...)
After that we headed out to Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood for the most delicious burgers at Den.
They also had the most incredible bloody mary I have ever tasted.
After an evening on Sunset we watched Shahs of Sunset. Yeah, this show is kind of amazing.
It is so nice to be out in the world again and not riddled with bronchitis anymore. Being sick and stuck in bed for a month is awful!
