If you can afford this, buy it. I love the structure, and rompers have been "in" for a while but are gaining even more ground. I sigh over its beauty. Just posted on Nasty Gal.

I freaking LOVE coats with (faux) fur trim collars . They're everywhere too. I know they're around every fall/winter, but for some reason I am getting a "special feeling" about them this year. I'm still searching for one that I like AND (key point) can afford. The one above (A Les Prairies de Paris coat seen at La Garconne) is beautiful, but made with real fur and out of my price range. Sigh.

I know I haven't posted in a while. And to be honest I haven't been eager to post (I've been busy!). But my heart skipped a beat when I saw this Preen jacket and I had to tell someone about it. I don't think the picture does it justice, and though that statement doesn't have any real value since haven't actually seen this jacket in real life, I just know I could rock it, and I can picture myself enveloped in its folds. Mmmm. Encountered at La Garconne.

I hate to be Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls, but sometimes I feel like telling fashion magazines to stop trying to make certain trends happen. Trend #1: casual floor-length dresses. Fashion editors have been shoving this silhouette down my throat for ages. A few people can pull it off, but I really don't understand how anyone finds this style flattering. Fashion editors need to be honest with themselves and their readers; the only people who can actually rock this dress are women who were hippies in the 60s, still live on a co-op or somewhere in India, and like to share amusing and surprisingly insightful new-agey advice with anyone they come into contact with. Trend #2: art prints. As I was reading the September issue of InStyle, I suffered from a mild episode of deja vu. The only explanation for this irritating sensation was the "Clothes We Love" article that listed garments fashioned in art print fabrics as worthy of adoration. I swear I've been seeing this trend listed in fashion magazines as one that should be taking off soon for over a year, and I just can't wrap my little brain around the reasoning behind this redundant prediction. When looking at these so-called "art prints," Benjamin is the only person that comes to mind: art reproduced on fabric is deprived of its aura and can only be classified as kitsch. Just because Rodarte is doing something doesn't mean you should too.
...And I'm done.

Alright. Hats of all sorts have clearly been the "it" accessory this summer, and I'm a sucker for this trend. I also believe it will be around for a while. As far as I'm concerned, Eugenia Kim has had the monopoly on this market thus far. But browsing La Garconne today I discovered a designer called Victor Osborne for whom I have already fallen head-over-heels. He even worked for Eugenia Kim once upon a time. He and his partner Zachary Barnett create ridiculously extravagant (and, therefore, amazing) styles, as well as wearable ones (such as the Ruffle Cloche hat pictured on the bottom that is now available for pre-order on lagarconne.com...uh, or not, since it seems to have sold out as I was writing this post [!!!]). Custom hats are also an option. Visit his website or his store at 364 Leonard Street in Brooklyn.
This Vena Cava Zenith Dress is feminine, bohemian, and subtly sexy (i.e. perfect). And, it could definitely work in both summer (worn alone with some heels and delicate jewelry maybe) and winter (belted with some dark stockings and a cardigan perhaps). From La Garconne.

I really love this Y's by Yohji Yamamoto Cross-Check Stole in black and white. Of course, by the time I decided it was worth the money, it was sold out on the only I site I know that it exists on (Totokaelo). My taste is just that good. Just kidding. But if you know any other places I can buy it, let me know.

So I'm sure everyone knows by now that latex leggings are the style of the moment, and they should be gaining momentum into the Fall. They also probably won't be sticking (no pun intended) around for long, so get away with them while you can! I just bought this pair by Kova & T from Shopbop.com.

Do you remember the blazer mania that erupted 7 or 8 years ago? I predict a return this fall. And while I am slightly disturbed that this trend may be a result of Gossip Girl, I'm still a fan. Look for shrunken wool blazers or tuxedo jackets in black or navy. Pictured: J Crew Wool Hacking Jacket (the jacket I would buy if there were any left in my size), Lux Little Brother Blazer (the jacket I recently purchased, available at Urban Outfitters).

I am in the market for some medium brown, platform sandals to wear with my high-waisted bell-bottoms. Barbara Bui has made them, but, alas, they are sold out at Shopbop.com AND in the Barbara Bui store in Soho in my size. I have scoured the Internet, and come up with nothing that satisfies my desire. Help me out!
