Runway: 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2011 RTW

It's no secret that I love Phillip Lim. I'm loving the mix of fabrics, the colour palette, and the unique silhouette we've all come to expect. I'm noticing a lot of brightly coloured pants lately... might need to invest in a pair like these bright green ones. It's nice to see that the sweatpants look isn't going anywhere, either, because I still haven't totally jumped on that bandwagon but I might pretty soon. I want those peach cropped trousers too! Ah, I just want it all.

Runway: Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 RTW

I'm loving the contrast in this show. The first half is so 1970s youth with dreamy prints and amazing accessories, and the second half is typical MbMJ being sleek and beautiful and something that the cast of Gossip Girl would wear. Both are so beautiful, but the juxtaposition makes the differences even more pronounced and makes you appreciate them more.

Runway: Altuzarra Fall 2011 RTW

I must say that Altuzarra's show didn't really do that much for me. They've never really suited my taste, and although I'm loving the layering and the mixing of patterns, the entire show was kind of unremarkable for me. The strength is definitely in the dresses, and I'd like to see some more of that, especially the rose silk one and the long argyle one.

Runway: Carolina Herrera Fall 2011 RTW

I want the sort of lifestyle where I can wear Carolina Herrera every day. Her silhouettes are always to terribly elegant and feminine, and I fall in love with every dress I see. I think I need a sugar daddy or something to buy these things for me.

Runway: Alexander Wang Fall 2011 RTW

I'm just totally speechless over how perfect Alexander Wang's show was. There are so many things I want... the boxer shorts, the sparkly pants, the leather jackets, the knit sweaters, the tuxedos, the silk dresses that look like they've been sent through a shredder. Gimme!
