ALL SAINTS

How much do I regret not visiting the All Saints store when I was in London last year? Umm a lot. But now I can salivate over the gorgeous pieces from the brand's website, and MAYBE even purchase a few, as one British pound is now equal to $1.48!!!
Here are my fave All Saints pieces:

Saturday

Holla Colla

Today marks the first (real) snow of the year in NYC! So bundling up in my black Isabel Marant military coat is a must, as is a cozy, neck-warming knit.
Luckily I got my hands on this AMAZING Lutz & Patmos sweater from Barneys before they sold out

but now I'm searching for the perfect neckwarmer

Eugenia Kim Liv Neckwarmer, $223.30, Hortensia grey chola knit collar, $178

Luckily, for the recessionistas out there, there's a little site called ETSY, where lovely creative people such as Camille from Childhood Flames create handmade pieces that are easy on the wallet.
Right now I'm lusting after this little hooded creation by IONTACH

I'm such a sucker for chunky knit sweaters and scarves, and apparently hoods too.

Fall-ing in Love

The pre-fall 2009 collections make me so very excited, first because they remind me of the warm weather to come, and second because they are just a little tasting of the amazing fall runway shows coming up!
So first off, my faves from Burberry and Chanel, the two classiest labels in existence. Salivate away!

Just Browsing

I decided to do a quick update since I havent written an article in... oh.. forever. I've been crazy busy in my senior year and am starting production for a shakespeare play, but of course I've been shopping all along, not even my crazy 9-7 schedule can keep me from doing that! So here are a handful of things I've been lusting after online.
PS- I've been trying to do a Spring 09 post but I am completely inept at Photoshop, I apologize. Do they make a Dummies Guide to Photoshop?
