Fall is near ..

.. and I know exactly what to buy!

FALL. My style isn't that mind blowing, and sometimes it's just plain dull. When I went through the fall/winter shows back when they went down the catwalk, I honestly found the fashion-industry's "OH MY GOD"-shows (like Alexander McQueen) .. well .. ugly. So not for me. But maybe that's just because I'm a color-girl. I love colors, especially colors on the legs. So colorful pants and tights are big hits in my fashion-book, so in one way or another fall actually turned out to be my season this year. Maybe not in the "I know all about fashion"-way, but in my own little way.
And what's the fun in liking the same as everybody else?
Even though I didn't like the collections from Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Lanvin or Marc Jacobs, I did find some things I NEED to own. Here's a look:

Turquoise is definitely my color this winter. Perfect way to lighten up the sad and grey weather:
1. Temperly London, 2. 3.1 Phillip Lim, 3. Lacoste, 4. Lacoste, 5. House Of Holland.
I already have a pair of turquoise tights, but I definitely need more in other shades of turquoise. And at least one dress!

Look at these amazing shades of blue:
1. Karen Walker, 2. Lacoste, 3. 3.1 Phillip Lim.
I need to get my hands on a waist-skirt in that exact color, and that pair of Phillip Lim pants is just waiting to be in my closet.

Bordeaux is a fab color - specially on the legs:
1. Lacoste, 2. Proenza Schouler, 3. Viktor&Rolf
If any of you know where to get a pair of pants that looks like the ones from Victor&Rolf, please let me know!

The shade of red this season is very crazy, so I definitely need to have a very light or a very dark color to go with it, to make the coolest contrast:
1. Jasmin Di Milo, 2. Victor&Rolf.

I love frills - and this collection from Moschino is fab fab fab, and full of frills, but also very Sonia Rykiel-ish:
1. Moschino, 2. Moschino, 3. Moschino.

Sonia Rykiel is known for her knitwear, and I personally own some of her amazing work, and I love it. On the other hand Karl Lagerfeld is known for .. well .. tweet, but he did make some lovely knitted dresses in the Chanel fall show:
1. Sonia Rykiel, 2. Sonia Rykiel, 3. Chanel, 4. Chanel.
The loveliest thing about Sonia Rykiel's show was the smile on the models lips. LOVED it! Who knew they had such cute smiles?

I've never actually been that into waist-belts, waist-skirts, or anything waist at all, but lately I've realized what an amazing waist I happen to have, and that I should show it to the world:
1. Jovovich-Hawk (look they've made two of my fall favorites in one: waist and frills!), 2. Valentino, 3. Valentino,
4. BCBG Max Azria, 5. BCBG Max Azria, 6. BCBG Max Azria, 7. BCBG Max Azria.

And then there's the leftovers:
Green is a lovely color, I'm sure I'm gonna use a lot this winter, same goes for purple and the curry-yellow. And as for the tights from Chanel - aren't they just fab?
1. Proenza Schouler, 2. Proenza Schouler, 3. Alberta Ferreti, 4. Chanel.

Gosh, I'm sorry this post got so long. I got carried away.

I'm not sure I'm going to keep on writing in english. What do you think?
Most of my visitors are danish, but .. some of them are not. And what about them?
