Chloë Sevigny.

I find Chloë Sevigny's style extremely inspiration and it is old news that she has designed a collection for Opening Ceremony. However, I do love her designs and I think the clothing is a good reflection of her own style. There are a few quirky pieces and lots of florals. The lookbook is also stunning and provides great inspiration.

Ruffles and frills please.

At the moment, ruffles and frills say to me femininity and romance. I would love a cream blouse with ruffles to go with my new tiered floral skirt that I bought the other day. I'm thinking perhaps a sheer blouse, a la Selina from Flying Saucer. I think the two would really work well together in the girly mood I'm in at the moment. I should really make the most of the pretty romantic trends this spring and summer because it looks like all change next autumn.

Not that I'm going to let that stop me.

Accessories: Brown Leather Belts

At New York Fashion Week, the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection was full of sophistication. (In fact, that has nothing to do with this post)

Something made dominant was the leather belt which was worn knotted. It seems this is a new trend we'll all be getting to grips with soon.

I love the brown belt worn with high-waisted skirts, but I also love it worn with feminine dresses as in Karen Walker in her Spring/Summer collection. I think the use of the looped brown belts here are perfect, especially with the floral dress.

However, this way of wearing belts is not completely new. It is very popular with the stylish Swedish girls, particularly Emma Nyren. I think her outfit choices are amazing.

EDIT: As J'adore Vogue pointed out, the top row is actually BCBG Max Azria. I think all the different collections must have confused me. Sorry!

First Look: Erin Fetherston F/W 2008

New York Fashion Week has just got underway and there is literally hundreds and hundreds of photos for me to pour my way through. Always an admirer of her girly and dreamy creations, Erin Fetherston's collection entitled "Love Sprung" was once again full of innocence and romance.

Her collection featured some rather lovely peacoats and a beautiful brocade coat-dress. However, it was her dresses that caught my attention. The colour palette contained some richer autumn tones than previous seasons. One of my favourite looks is the fern-green dress which, together with the floral hairpiece, is reminiscent of romantic woodland scenes.

The theme of nature ran through the collection with vivid floral prints bringing an essence of the garden and once again, romance. Ruffles and tiers also gave a sense of this. Florals look set to feature strongly next autumn as well as this spring.

The collection was not missing Erin Fetherston's trademark mini dresses which were worn with opaques and ballet shoes. The hair was beautifully done with romantic curls giving the feeling of innocence. This collection was young and girly - something we come to expect with Fetherston.
