For a fashion junkie like myself, there are always those certain pieces that elicit a feeling much like what a crack addict might feel upon that first hit... a high like no other: my stomach jumps for joy, and I YEARN for the clothes. Yes, I am a style addict, and I'd like to share this seasons addictions with you. After days and days of poring over the Spring 08 shows on STYLE.com, I have finally finished and have chosen those certain pieces that hit me hard like heroine.
A friend of mine worked the Lanvin show in Paris and said it was absolutely fabulous and was the first show of Alber Elbaz's to get a standing ovation. Of course, some of his pieces are interspersed in my favorites, and later, in my Spring 08 trend post. Stella McCartney was lovely as well, and I'd kill for some of Alexander Mcqueen's feathered pieces. So here we go, the beginnings of several Spring 08 runway blog posts...

Stella McCartney- A lovely and simple floral dress...perfect for a laidback sunday brunch
Kris Van Assche- I recently bought a well-taylored black blazer from Maje in Paris, and love wearing it with my black skinnies, a white tee, and black patent high heeled oxfords, so menswear chic.
