Selena Gomez in Elle Mexico

I'm not a huge fan of Selena Gomez (I don't really think she can act that well... or sing, but hey), but I adore this Elle Mexico shoot. The lighting/filters make the images so dreamlike, and Selena looks gorgeous in the clothes -- some of which come from places like ASOS, so I was all, "Yay, I could actually afford something in this magazine!" Check it out.

Paul Smith F/W 2011

Well, I think I've figured out what I want to wear this fall. I could go on and on about this collection. I just love it! I've always been a fan of boyish (but not too boyishs) looks, and Paul Smith has absolutely nailed it -- as usual.

Key points:

  • Outerwear - capelike coats, bunched up cardis, blazers (double or single breasted)
  • Pants - loose! Cuffed to the ankle or above them, too.
  • Accessories - nerd glasses, slouchy beanies, a tie if you're really daring, tote bags inspired by carpenter bags, patent oxfords and black socks.
  • Patterns: Everything's mostly plain, but there are a few touches of polka dots.

Matthew Williamson F/W 2011

I think this is one of the more sedate Matthew Williamson's collections, in terms of colorways. Still, it's a lot more colorful than most fall collections.

Key points: Quilted leather, tapered pants, fur stoles. Oh, and minimal black!

More Pre-Fall 2011: Maison Martin Margiela, Marni, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Naeem Khan, Sportmax, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Thakoon, Versace, and Yves Saint Laurent

Ugh, I loves the Marni. How is it that they manage to be ugly, granny-chic, yet completely covetable at the same time? As usual, the mix of prints and colors are to be admired here, as well as the platforms. Demure hemlines as well... you could definitely take some officewear ideas from here. (Ew, how practical -- officewear.)

Oddly enough, my favorite is the "chic" dress... I think it manages to not be overly gimmicky. Would I wear it in public? Maybe not.

This collection reminded me of MJ of Dreaming Spires -- I think it's the hats? Lovely 70's vibe here, and check out that cape! Maybe this'll be the winter that I gather up the courage (and copious layers) to wear my cape.

That last dress -- wow.

Honestly, the main reason I posted this is because of the last outfit. Doesn't that look like the hat that guy from Yo Gabba Gabba wears?
