Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE Star Wars, so naturally I had to love Rodarte's Fall 2014 collection. The last 5 looks all had Star Wars imagery on them, I actually want to buy one! Too bad they will be far too expensive. Those are the kind of pieces where you either love them, or hate them. I am probably in the minority, as most people find them a bit too out there. Laura and Kate Mulleavy always take us to new places and this year was no different. So much pattern and fabric mixing, and it was done right. Sometimes mixing patterns and textures can go horribly wrong, but here it was perfect. See my favorite looks from Fall 2012 and Spring 2012.

And next we have Mary Katrantzou's collection.

I always love being introduced to new websites and brands, recently I discovered Brantano for shoes.  They have an amazing collection with tons of womens boots options, perfect for Fall.  I've taken the liberty of creating a couple outfits for some Autumn inspiration!  This year boots that hit just above the ankle are very "in," but I am still partial to shorter booties or really tall.  I will definitely experiment with an in-between length when I find the perfect pair.

Look 1: These shoes are pretty basic so I went with an edgy vibe for the look. When you wear simple shoes you can really pump up the volume in the outfit.  Even though it is monochromatic I think it is very complex. The pleated leather and printed sweater go perfectly together.

Shoes: Clarks via Brantano, Skirt: Burberry London, Sweater: Mary Katrantzou, Clutch: Michael Micheal Kors, Earrings: Kimberly McDonald

Look 2: For this look I decided to go for an animal, safari vibe.  Tights may be needed for this outfit depending on when it's worn but Fall is that time of year when you never know how the day will end up.

Shoes: Emilio Luca via Brantano, Jacket: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Dress: Mara Hoffman, Necklace: Deepa Gurnani

First of all, I want to say Happy 21st Birthday to my brother!! (not that he reads my blog) He makes me feel so old, we're only 3 years apart but thinking about the fact that I have 21 and (almost) 16 year old brothers is depressing!

Anywayyyy, ever since I bought these amazing Zara Floral print shorts I've been dreaming up ways to wear them. The problem is I don't have any of the pieces to do it! I've been out shopping a few times but never seem to find the exact pieces I want.  So today I decided to make my dream outfit, this is one of the ways I'd love to wear them. I went all out with a Mary Katrantzou top, so gorgeous! But I am most likely going to wear it more simply and ease into print mixing. I also tried to use the accessories to pull out some of the colors in the prints, like the Miu Miu heels that I've been obsessed with for months, such a pretty color!

I meant to start posting these a while ago but other things came up...anyway, here are some of my favorite looks from Fashion Week. This is going to be in a couple posts because there are a lot.  I won't say much about the collections because the post will be kinda long even without words.

Anna Sui: LOVE the Harry Potter-esque glasses and all the prints!

J.Crew: They just keep getting better and better...LOVE!

Mary Katrantzou: Awesome prints as always, but this time she didn't go as wild!

Oscar de la Renta: Beautiful and laadylike, as usual! I love the teal!
