Fall is the season where I create my best “runway hippie” outfits. If you’re wondering what on earth that means, allow me to explain. I am as equally drawn to free flowing bohemian apparel as I am to the decadent, high-fashion designs we see on the runway and am thus constantly integrating both styles into my outfits. For example, I am on the hunt for a Penny Lane inspired suede coat with fur trim (mine was stolen about two years ago) and am also coveting everything from the F/W Prada and Stella McCartney runways.

Runway. Hippie. Get it? HAR HAR!

Anyways, as I approach my closet every morning, excited about the fact that I can finally layer my favorite clashing styles, I look to these images for inspiration. Intricate and ornamented Balmain, bohemian Kate Moss, gypsy feathers, armored fingers, oy! I love Fall!

Shopping BFF

It’s no news that I love me some designer goods; but as we all know, they’re not exactly affordable, especially when you’re living on a budget. Sure, I’ve scored some pieces after browsing through pages upon pages on ebay and sifting through racks at consignment stores, but it’d be nice to know if a certain store was going to have those last season Chloe shoes I wanted so badly before actually going there. That’s where Bluefly comes in. I admit that up until now I’d never really spent any time on Bluefly. I’ve always known what it was thanks to that catchy commercial tune (“that’s why I blueee flyyyyy” - come on, I know you all know it), and for being a sponsor of Project Runway, but other than that it was pretty foreign to me. However, after seeing the pair of leopard calf skin Miu Miu platforms I’ve been coveting for almost a year on sale, I realized that Bluefly may just be my new shopping bff.  Yes, I still plan on doing some spring shopping of new collections (Rebecca Taylor I’m looking at you), but it’d be nice to finally add a few of these gems that I’ve been longing after for so long to my spring wardrobe. Here are some of my Bluefly finds:

  1. Love Sam Sequin Blouse - $298 $208
  2. Geren Ford Navy Silk Romper - $294 $176
  3. Wyatt Navy Stripe Button Down - $108 $65
  4. Loeffler Randall Squiggle Short - $225 $121.99
  5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Diamond Stripe Skirt - $198 $119
  6. Miu Miu Gladiator Sandals - $540 $432
  7. Emilio Pucci Geometric Clutch - $590 $472
  8. Miu Miu Leopard Platform Sandals - $790 $632
  9. Prada Cut-Out Tote - $1,495 $1,196
  10. Tom Ford Chase Sunglasses - $380 $206
  11. Chloe Eau de Parfum - $96 $86.50
  12. Linea Pelle Studded Belt - $140 $126
  13. Parker Silk Floral Dress - $250 $149

Loving Lara

Don’t get me wrong, I love Freja, Bregje, Hanne and a dozen more but when it comes down to my favorite model Lara Stone easily takes the cake and it seems I’m not alone in my obsession as she was just named model of the year at the British Fashion Awards. While I’ve mentioned my love for a gap-toothed smile before (see here), it’s Lara’s uncommon model figure, sensual eyes and lips, laid back style and sassy attitude that puts her at the very top of my favorite model list.

She’s played the role of muse to Karl Lagerfeld, opened and closed shows for the biggest names in the fashion industry, and has been the face of countless advertisements like Givenchy and Louis Vuitton. And while that may all sound normal for an average sized model with a perfect runway walk, Lara Stone is so far off the typical model spectrum that her place in the fashion industry could easily be paralleled with that of Kate Moss. She’s frequently referred to as “busty”, “curvy”, and “voluptuous” and makes frequent cracks at her inability to walk in heels which obviously poses a bit of a challenge when it comes to walking the catwalk. And yet despite her atypical attributes, Lara has managed to make the fashion industry fall head-over-heels in love with her.

Here are some of my favorite images of her but to be honest it took me over an hour to narrow it down to just these - everything she does is perfection.
