me, next fall


Of all the fall looks that came down the international runways over the last month, this one from Isabel Marant ranks way up there for me. The reason? It's an outfit that I could see myself wearing all the time, going from a school run to a meeting to a photo shoot--pretty much anywhere. The vintage-looking lace top is pretty and feminine and the oversized coat makes a very Fall 2012 statement. I am thinking about pre-ordering the whole schebang on Moda Operandi, which is staging a trunk show today through March 15. But I actually already own a bunch of vintage lace tops just like this one, which I've culled over the years from various flea markets (the best one being the Vintage Expo in Santa Monica, a thrice-yearly sale staged at the Santa Monica Civic Center, and the next one happens on May 5-6, woo hoo!). I have a feeling--given how much Isabel Marant pervades my style consciousness--that I will be on the prowl for more. So good.

It is hard for me to imagine fall but I love that look too!

Looks like it's in SF, not Santa Monica...

Oops - thanks for catching that. I fixed the dates.
