Sweater Girl

It's no secret that I love fall. It's my favorite time of year. Something about this season inspires me -- the golden sunlight, the spicy scent of leaves and dew, the crispness in the air.... AND I get to wear woolen sweaters! It's been in the mid 50s this last week, and the almost cool enough to break out my knitted goods and coats. I can't wait. But, I must admit, I'm a bit out of practice at dressing for this kind of weather. I've been honing my skills at dressing for high humidity and temperatures in the 90s.

So to prepare myself, here are some of my favorite looks from the fall/winter 08 runway shows:

The luminous sheen of the coats, the pulled-on, carefree fingerless mitts and caps, and gorgeous beryl shades from Burberry Prorsum

The kicky skirts with thigh high boots and chunky but still shapely and femme sweaters at Fendi

Austere color palette, bad ass headgear (three cornered hats!), and the perfect amount of slouch at Marc Jacobs

The vintage 70s look at Dolce & Gabbana, complete with wide wale corduroy

By far, my favorite fashion post yet! LOVE the Burberry Prorsum and Marc for luxe, yet with a thrifty feel. Just perfect! And, the colors! Like a steaming pot of beef stew or a box of pretty little chocolates!

I would feel like a million dollars, wearing any one of these outfits. I love this collection!
