NYFW

Sep 24, 2010

SO ON TIME RIGHT?? I KNOW!!

I went on a business trip to San Francisco that absolutely wrecked me after my coworkers and I thought it'd be a stellar idea to walk from Haight/Ashbury back to Union Square with completely inappropriate footwear and shopping bags up hill, downhill, then uphill, and downhill like 17,000 times on repeat. All on the first day mind you. The next two days were limptastic with fully flared shin splints and the sweatiest armpits but coldest face from all the walking in the icy wind. Three exhausting days and a fat cold sore later I was back home, only to jump back into work and get not nearly enough sleep. I'm just now starting to pull out of zombie mode and have found a moment to finally post my recap of NYFW. I almost didn't because when I feel super behind I usually just hit the reset button and jump forward to whatever's current instead of even attempting to get caught up. Buuuut I knew you were dying to see what I had to say cause, you know, I'm totally important and shit. HA!

Acne
Isn't it obvious? ALL RED, yes. Plus you know my preference of wearing clothes I could potentially sleep in - very key for narcoleptics like me. No really. But those glasses - what's going on here? I don't think there's one fashionable person who's ever been able to pull off Matrix glasses. Not one. Ever.

Jeremy Laing
I'm going to admit I didn't know much about him until I saw the amazing bubble sweater, but I do love me some Laing now! Check out that weird sweater thing! Are you as confused by it as I am? It's love. Love makes no sense.
Jeremy Scott
Not usually a fan, but for some reason I always love his weirdo leather pieces. Like the cropped biker jacket from his Flintstones collection that had the jagged-cut bottom hem. Then there's this skirt, which is amazing but probably so expensive. So expensive, in fact, that you shouldn't even start dreaming about it and just go to your local fetish shop as I'm sure there will be something similarly streetwalker-ish there. Streetwalker is my dad's word for WHORE. And this guy...is it just me or does he look way self-conscious?

Preen
Can someone please tell me WTH is going on with the fake bangs? I'm thinking runway quality hairstyles are supposed to look convincing. That's clearly not what's going on here. Except for Abbey, who is looking quite boss with her new white hair. Did you notice her rogue toe though? I did. Those two dresses saved the day.

Proenza Schouler
TEXTURE! TEXTURE! TEXTURE!

Rodarte
Everything. I want everything. Two things I have a major weakness for. Wood and those blue/white porcelain vase prints. Dear Laura and Kate, thank you for combining the two and bringing joy to my eyes. Oh and Kate, I love you for wearing New Balances. ps. I have those. YAY! Shoe twins, high five!

TSE
Lately all I want are slouchy, comfy cardigans and anything with leather or leather trims. Oh hi, look it's everything I ever wanted! With bonus Wonderwoman cuffs. I can be the Cashmere Superhero, fighting the war against itchy wools and acrylic blends.

Alexander Wang
As trendy as the brand has become I've loved every collection because he makes such beautiful, clean, wearable things. Until now. You're no longer in the circle of trust, Alex. Unless you give me these awesome shoes. Then we'll call it even.

honestly i skipped everyone else's re-caps cuz i was like, hello, i can enter "style.com" into the address bar by myself... BUT i did go through yours, i think it was the added graphics that caught my attention. and also, you just admitted that wood is one of your favorite things ::snicker::
