NYFW RTW Spring 2012: Catching Up!

I always do the same thing with Fashion Week: I suck up the first day or two of shows hungrily, devouring each one as it shows up on style.com, but then after a while I get overwhelmed by SO MUCH FASHION and kind of give up on even trying to keep up. Then, when it's over, I go back and catch up.

This is the catching up phase! (I look at EVERY single show, but I only post looks that really grab my attention. There are so many shows that are on the verge of greatness that I keep expecting to be copying the next look to post about, but that great look never comes. It's frustrating!)

Bill Blass Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

I WANT this coat from Bill Blass. I feel like if I wore this on a cruise, they'd let me steer the ship. Or maybe it would get me through airport security super fast?


Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

I love the combination of the lines on this Carolina Herrera dress combined with the lines of the belt!

Jeremy Scott Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

I've mostly just posted things I've loved so far, but I have to bring THIS up! Jeremy Scott is always kind of kooky, but this collection is just pure sillyness. The thing is, I like quirky runway shows a lot in general, but only when there's a really solid foundation of style backing up the sillyness. This collection is just TOO campy.

I mean, you guys, THIS happened:

Jeremy Scott Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

I just don't GET it. At all. You could totally do the cheesy hillbilly vibe WELL so many ways. Why do it like this? It's not even avant garde, it's just... bad.

Josie Natori Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

This Josie Natori look is just spot-on!


Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

Nanette Lepore makes me want to pair up orange and sky blue!


Rodarte Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
I love Rodarte. I love Van Gogh. I love this Sunflower-y dress.

Rodarte Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
Seriously, Rodarte S/S 12, let's make out.


Thakoon Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
I'm not a fan of the mustardy dress, but I so want this Thakoon blazer! This collection makes me wonder if we'll see a lot of cowboy/western-inspired fashion when Spring comes?

Thakoon Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

Love this backstage shot, too!

Thom Browne Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

Dear Thom Browne, I would like an oversized jacket with lobster claws for my birthday, please.


Tracy Reese Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
I need this Tracy Reese dress, too! And the shoes!

Vena Cava Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
Love this Vena Cava outfit! Other than the white shorts, this would be awesome for my New Orleans trip!

That's it for New York! Time to start drooling over London!

That Tracy Reese dress is super cute! I'm still making my way through all the shows. I don't want to get too excited since the clothes won't be available right away :)
