Fall in Love with P.S. It’s Fashion
Happy Fall everyone!
With the onset of cooler temps come cooler clothes and fabulous fabrics. Velvety suede, buttery leather, camo hues and darker tones… Absolutely my favorite season AND my favorite time for fashion! I just can’t wait until the leaves match my hair!

Jad Ghandour Grows Up
My sole memory of the Jad Ghandour show last season is of two adorable tiger cubs that jumped and pounced inside their cages. But the clothes…. wait, what clothes? The cubs were just so cute and funny that I have no memory of anything that was shown on the runway.
And perhaps Ghandour realized this, as this season’s show was allocated to the opulent Cipriani, nary a baby animal in sight. While the awkward double-turn on the runway seemed unnecessary, the clothes were beautiful, so maybe Ghandour wanted to make certain that they would be imprinted on your mind.
Ghandour showed a large collection, touching on everything from edgy Angelina Jolie-esq second-skin leather dresses to beaded bodice flowing brightly-hued gowns that would not look out of place on the most elite red carpets. His fall/winter 2012 collection was inspired by the screen sirens of old Hollywood: Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Gandour’s interpretation of “old Hollywood” into updated, modern shapes helps prevent the collection from feeling dated and stale, and invites young Hollywood to don his dresses at their next event.
Sometimes inspiration can be found in the strangest places. In my case, the inspiration for this outfit came from a picture of a child I saw on Tumblr. (For the record, I’m not a fan of children, so those that know me would find this even stranger).
With nippier weather, this outfit offers a cosy, casual and warm weekend look that is perfect for running errands as well as curling up in front of the fire. The maxi skirt offers a long line for a flattering look, as well as offering protection from the outside air.
Layering is key when you’re running around, as temps change from location to location. A long sleeve thermal and edgy zip-up vest offer substantial warmth without adding much bulk. Keeping them in the same tonal family is also flattering, and black is a universal color that works on all skin tones.
Topping off the look with a thick knit beanie and gold-tipped cat-eye sunglasses keeps the casual and edgy theme running from head to toe.
