Inside Fall Fashion Magazines: InStyle, Lucky, Elle

It's September! Which means one thing... Fall Fashion magazines...each of telephone book sized thickness! I thought I'd share my favorite ads and features of 3 September 2009 Fall preview magazines: InStyle, Lucky, and Elle.

To start- Marion Cottliard for Dior: Old Hollywood Glamour..

Ralph Lauren - I love how feminine this is. The combination of the embroidered and beaded bodice with the dirty pink skirt makes this quite vintage:

and here are the shoes... sigh...

Emma Watson for Burberry: Showing that sophisticated can be young. I love the jacket, bag and bracelet in this ad.

I love the color of her coat in this one- it's the perfect shade of tan, I really wish I could press her coat though..

I'm officially ready for trench coats.. and coffee.. naturally the two go hand in hand..

I have to say that besides the Burberry trenches, I have yet to find a trench for fall that I love. I was hopeful for J.Crew but what they currently offer doesn't seem to excite me.
A trench should do something for a woman; asthetically it should fit like a shirtdress and work to perfect your shape, and psychologically it should make you believe that when you put it on, you look exactly like Eva Green in last year's Mont Blanc ad.. ;)

I love, love, love high waisted pencil skirts with demure blouses. This outfit was featured in Lucky September 2009 issue. The blouse is Armani Exchange.

I'm so excited about the return of camel.. Its sooo retro and chic. The look is definetly in for coats but I'm even more thrilled to see camel pencil skirts.

Max Mara ad: Camel coat and pencil skirt

Another high waisted camel pencil skirt.. This one is from Ralph Lauren's Blue Label collection (from Lucky September 2009 issue)

If I could live in any other time it would be in the 40s and 50s so I could dress like this on a daily basis for no good reason.. (Lucky Magazine September 2009 issue)

I think this ad for the OPI Espana Line embodies brunette glamour.. After checking out the line I decided to buy the color Manicurist of Seville, after checking out this picture, I think I'm going to make an oversized red rose for my hair. :)

Well thats all for now.. busy working on new designs!!
