On Monday when I had my day off work I got to drool over the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 live-stream! I was SO glad I didn't have to miss it. The show was amazing, especially the fake thunderstorm they had at the end, it totally caught me off guard and was the perfect finish to a perfect show!

Fashion season isn't over yet but I'm going to make a prediction and guess that this will be my favorite Fall/Winter 2012 show. I always enjoy a lot of shows but I know when a show jumps out at me this much it is destined to be my favorite. I wanted to post EVERY.SINGLE.LOOK in this post and had to resist…that doesn't happen often. I'll even go further and say this may be my favorite Burberry show ever, which is saying a lot. Burberry is always my favorite, I think Christopher Bailey must read my mind. He is simply amazing and never fails to disappoint! I need to either win the lottery or rob a bank so I can buy every piece.

The dark, muted, colors, textures, stripes, draping and everything about the collection was perfect.  I also loved the bow details, silver and gold animal adornments on the belts and bags and ESPECIALLY the owl print t-shirts. I don't care how much they cost but I am going to get my hands on one of those! I'm an owl obsessed freak…maybe it comes from my Harry Potter obsession but I think they are SO cute! The menswear was also perfection, I would LOVE if my (imaginary) boyfriend wore the whole collection, especially the velvet ones...I'm a sucker for velvet.

Here we go with my favorites (there were 58, including the men, I'm posting 32...I couldn't resist!) Click to enlarge.
