NYFW Roundup/What I Want to Wear this Fall


I'm always amused at how the fashion "cycle" works. Just as I am craving spring, NYFW comes along and has me looking ahead to fall. This season was a bit different as it gave me a whole lot more to fall in love with and (eventually) look forward to.

There were three things I absolutely loved this season. First off, COLOR! It was really nice to see traditionally spring colors like pastel pink, blue and lavender on the runway, in addition to the fall staples of emerald, royal blue and other jewel tones.

My next love was the return of the turtleneck! I feel like the turtleneck has been shunned in the last few years, and I'm not sure why. I have always thought of the turtleneck (in the right cut and fabric) as one of the most basic wardrobe essentials, as well as the best friend to a great statement necklace (ala Natasha Bedingfield.) I loved Doo.Ri's take on the style in the form of drapey dresses and tops. 

Lastly this NYFW, I absolutely LOVED Christan Siriano's A/W12 collection. Oh me, oh my, it was an absolute dream. Because when I think of my dream wardrobe, it looks exactly like this collection. It's what I want to wear. Everyday. I need every piece in my wardrobe IMMEDIATELY (or as soon as fall rolls around.)

  1. I guess I never knew fashion was THAT far ahead haha- I am just starting to think about spring/ summer clothes as its still winter haha

  2. It looks like we're on the same page style wise (not that it's a surprise haha) and yes, I totally loved Christian Siriano! I actually think he's very underrated- I mean, look at those clothes, incredible! 
    I agree about color too, and think it's kind of a fun switch-up. I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to work it into my winter wardrobe but with AZ's weather, I probably don't have to worry about that until November!

    Hope you had a great (or at least doable) Monday :)
