The Wren Spring 2010 lookbook is filled with way too many cute and covetable pieces for me to handle. My Spring wishlist should not be as long as it already is. Fall just started. I'm going to lose it. Wannnnnt pretty things nowwwwwww. On the plus side, my hair will have inched closer to Ingrid Sophie Schram's length by Springtime. At least growing your hair doesn't cost a thing.

It's good to be a girl.

A round up of the shows from London and Milan is a bit over do. London goes by so quickly and suddenly we're well into Milan. It certainly is a lot to look at. So far, my favorites have been the girly, ultra feminine collections that manage to avoid veering into looking childish. I imagine the girl in these clothes to be soft and demure, albeit whip-smart and capable of kicking you where it counts if you give her any trouble.

Gianfranco Ferré SS10

Yet again I'm setting goals to wear more pale shades. No need to toss out the red lipstick though. I mean if Miuccia Prada says it's okay...

No seriously, you're perfect.

Apparently Lara Stone is sick of being "the fat one" and wants to change. To this I say...OH HELL NO. Lara, girl, you are seriously the most gorgeous model working today. Your features are so unique. No one comes close to your level. You're an icon.

Built By Wendy SS10

I need some pretty little clothes to cheer me up today. The Built By Wendy SS10 lookbook images are doing the trick. Wendy Mullen really seems to be progressing nicely when it comes to prints and patterns. I'm excited to see these pieces in person, and they seem like quite a difference from past collections. She has a tendency to use the same shapes over & over so it's refreshing to see a bit of a departure from what's we've seen from her prior to this.

Just a few more...

I have so many photos it's hard to resist posting them. But now I promise, I'm done with NYFW until February. Now we've moved on to London, which always leaves me more confused than anything.

Lovely Lewis

I was so excited when Alison Lewis asked me to come and take some photos at her SS10 presentation of her eponymous line, Lewis. Can that green one-shoulder dress be any more perfect? And the peach floral print--she designed it herself! Just as I was beginning to embrace my Fall sweaters and tights, each and every one of these pieces have got me longing for Spring.

Quiet chaos

More of my backstage shots from the shows. These girls fascinate me. Running from one show to the next, being manhandled, photographed, filmed, and interviewed, and still maintaining an element of grace.

Sweet Vlada

Among the truly breathtaking models I've had the pleasure of shooting this Fashion Week, Vlada Roslyakova, backstage and on the runway at VPL. Her eyes are otherworldly and send a bit of a chill down my spine.

See more photos I took at the show over on Dossier.

Pretty faces of NYFW

The gorgeous Irina Lazareanu and Daul Kim with their new short 'do's backstage at the Erin Wasson x RVCA show. Being able to photograph them was surreal. NYFW in general has been surreal in general, thus far.

Also, check out more of my photos of the Erin Wasson x RVCA show over on Dossier Journal. Deanne of Dream Sequins also wrote the review and has many more, some of which I'm contributing to, so definitely add Dossier's style blog to your blogroll.

More to come!

Vena Cava! NYFW! It's all happening! Ahh!

Just a quick one before I sleep. Vena Cava's collection surprised me and subsequently stole my heart with these three dresses.

Swoon! I also picked up one of their limited-edition-from-one-of-ten-archival-prints dresses at their Fashion's Night Out event tonight. It properly satiated my appetite for the designers I simply adore. Went to a couple other events for FNO, got tipsy on wine, and now, well, it's time to sleep as the alarm goes off at 7:30am and NYFW continues.

Hardcore cravings

I spent a good part of the weekend wandering into shops, fondling clothes, and leaving rather sad. All I want is new things for Fall. I know I insisted that I would streamline my wardrobe and focus on a few basic pieces, but it is so hard not to get overwhelmed by all of the lovely things for the change of season.

Furthermore, I have nothing to wear for NYFW. The summer clothes seem inappropriate now, while it's still too warm for the cold weather things. Money! Why must you elude me?!

Still killing it.

Inès de la Fressange seems like a genuinely awesome lady. You've got to have some serious cojones to walk the runway at 51. I hope when I'm in my 50's I've got half the character that she does. The gorgeous Parisian apartment of every girl's dreams wouldn't be bad either.

Hello, lovers

Oh mahhhhh the words of Rachel Zoe, I die I die I die. Beloved Martin Margiela degrade boots, I vow to keep you forever. I will never take you to a bar and let beer get spilled on you. I've dreamt many dreams of you and here you are. Now, what the hell am I gonna wear you with?

Perricone MD with DMAE Skincare Giveaway

I love any opportunity to host a giveaway on my blog, and this time around I'm offering up a bottle of Perricone MD's Amine Complex Face Lift. The product is meant to restore the skin to a healthy appearance, using DMAE and Vitamin C Ester. As the cooler months approach, it's time to up the ante on our skincare regimens. While I look forward to nice, straight hair in the winter, I absolutely dread the dry skin.

To enter, just leave a comment below (be sure to include a way for me to contact you!). Tell me why you think this product would do you some good, what you've been using in terms of skincare, and anything else you'd like to include. The contest is open to U.S. residents only and will end on 12 p.m. Eastern Time on September 17th.
