In other words: summer. Basically. That awkward season where you’re not buying fall or spring wardrobes, but retailers still want you to shop. And mayybbeee you’re thinking about making some fall-esque purchases.
Or maybe it’s just to tie us over until the Fall shows in February.
Regardless. I give you this. The best of Pre-Fall 2012 from this week.
Well, we could pretty much just stop at the below image, because I’m not sure what in life is better than this Dsquared look. Green Velvet blazer. LADY BOW TIE. Chic pants topped with pointy toe pumps. This is everything.
OR WAIT. This gothic-meets-Upper East side cape. The lines. Jason Wu. Be still my heart. There aren’t really words.
Rag and Bone. I love the colors shown in this collection. The varsity jacket reappears. I want to wear that multicolored skirt everyday in August. And you can bet I will start saving for those red boots…..now.
Thakoon. I really love the muted color palette and how it creates a sweet and romantic aesthetic. Great shapes and textures. Furry pockets are always a plus.
Proenza Schouler. Loving the 2 piece crop top look.Class PS silhouettes.
Givenchy. Major boots. Re-visitation of the Rottweiler.
Prabal Gurung. GENIUS.
Dsquared. It’s like they captured my soul. This dress is DIVINE. And I want to wear that outfit everyday I’m NOT wearing that dress.
More things like…Collars. The good news is that collars are here to stay, at least throughout the summer. This reaffirms my ceaseless need to wear a collar every day from now AT LEAST until my birthday in late August.

Cool Outerwear. (from L to R: Carven, Rochas, Rochas, dSquared) I love how each of these coats have an outdoorsy feel, but how they were all styled femininely with pointed toe pumped and skirts. New vibes.
If none of the above satisfied you, then I will leave you with this. A onesie from Stella McCartney. Also, if you’re on Pinterest, I have officially become obsessed and created an entire Pre-Fall board for your viewing pleasures.
