London Fashion Week Day II

19 Sep

I have been looking forward to the beginning of fall since Beijing’s first summer day that reached 100 degrees.  Hallelujah!  Fall is here.  The morning air is crisp and the breeze adds just the perfect amount of chill down my spine.  So…why I am already wishing for spring?? I suppose I should blame Jonathan Saunders and Ms. Vivienne Westwood for that!

Here are my favorites from Day II of London Fashion Week Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear:

Sheer nude dress with yellow detail by Jonathan Saunders.

Printed romper OR separates by Jonathan Saunders. Honestly, I can't tell if this is a romper or not. Either way - I think it is a fun casual look, but of course, I hope it is a romper!

Silk nude and baby blue dress by Jonathan Saunders. I love the femininity of this dress.

Look by Jaeger London. This hat is fantastic. The perfect outfit for widow shopping on vacation or meeting the girls for lunch.

Look by Jaeger London. It would definitely need a camisole to be PTA appropriate, but I think this colorful short suit could work at a number of daytime events.

Romper by Jaeger London. I like how they added a pop of yellow in the shoe; however, I think I would have preferred it at the waist with a thin bright yellow paten leather belt.

Jumpsuit by Julien Macdonald. Simple and chic. Plus, how convenient are the pockets!

Sheer gown by Julien Macdonald. Okay - so you need a knock out bod for this dress - but isn't it stunning? I love the heavy feel of the fringe details at the bottom on such light and sheer fabric.

Perfect safari chic look at Vivienne Westwood Red Label.

WOW me RED at Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Look by Nabil El-Nayal shown at Fashion Fringe. It is not overly "springy", but the volume of the blouse is great, and the pencil skirt is the perfect proportion to the top.

Dress by Issa. A great, easy everyday dress. It is borderline too simple (for me anyway!) but I think this would look good on a lot of different women, and I love the cut.

Jumpsuit by Issa. Can you believe it? I like another jumpsuit. Shocking. But seriously...this one is super cute.

Cerulean blue gown by Issa. This gown has such a beautiful flow. It looks effortless - which makes it perfect for vacation or for a last-minute fancy dinner date with your husband!
