Daily Inspiration: Rodarte and Yves Saint Laurant Spring 2012

  Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
I was going to post an outfit today but I didn't have time on Monday and I was too lazy yesterday, ha I'll have to photograph today's outfit unless something insane happens.

Today I'm posting some more Spring 2012 looks that could also work for fall because of their color palettes. First up is the Rodarte collection. I love how they used Van Gogh paintings as inspiration and the dramatic makeup used. And as you all know I LOVE wearing purple, so that makes me love this collection even more.

Next we have Yves Saint Laurent, once again TONS of purple, YES! There are a lot of separates which is great because you can then mix and match all these great pieces together for many more looks. I'm glad to see the jewel tone trend is going to continue because those are the types of colors that look great on me.
