Paris Fashion Week, Part 1

Chanel - I really, really, really tried to find something I liked in the FW 08/09 collection ... and pretty much failed miserably. Their image just doesn't jive with my tastes, but I won't knock those who like the clothes and accessories. I did, however, appreciate Lagerfeld's efforts to move away from the Chanel "cliches," like the chain bag and quilted leather, the interlocked C's.

Giambattista Valli - Though I can't quite understand the silhouette of the collection, there were a few very interesting outfits.

I really love this dress. I'm not the biggest fan of ruffles, but for some reason, this dress really stuck out. It's what I imagine a stylish 20-something young professional would wear (in an office with a more relaxed dress code).

Stella McCartney - Once again, Stella didn't let me down. I love, love, LOVE the winter dresses (though, honestly, you'd freeze to death if you didn't wear anything over them)! My only complaint is that the color palette, as usual for most designers, is really drab and colorless.

These shoes are gorgeous!

Givenchy - Classy, classy, classy. Mixed with a little pirate.
