Eeeek A list already for spring!! You guys will make planners out of me yet :p

Ta-Ta - I like your idea of printing the pieces and saving them. Unfortunately, I've just started creating my collage for fall, though... inspired by tFS, but slightly behind Your current picks are beautiful! I think they'll go over well with Ms. Helena, too

Your way is probably better, Curious ... you are enjoying the current season to the full Unfortunately the weather at a minimum is preventing me from doing that ... we are still seeing lots of hundred-degree (or more) days here ... I was really hoping the hurricane would bring us some cooler weather, but that didn't materialize. Nor did a single drop of rain ...

Quirky, you're right, this method does help eliminate impulse buying, though not entirely--and sometimes that's good, and sometimes it's bad. Like just recently I bought this sweater with crocheted straps and a handkerchief hem, and it's really cute & a pretty color ... but I'm beginning to think it was a mistake. First, I look very, very busty in it, and secondly, I want to layer it, but it doesn't work with anything I've tried so far. Really I need a shrug so that the Vs at the bottom can be seen ... first time I've ever wanted one ...

What I've found shopping (mostly) this way is that I spend more, but get much better results.

i do the same thing as you: i make a collage with pics from style.com/magazines of my favorite looks/pieces (see one here from f/w 04)...and since i don't live in nyc, i have to call ahead to get pieces i want (like calvin klein's black mary janes from f/w 05)...i've also started spending more on pieces, but quality things...things that i'll have forever...
i fear i'm getting to that age!

i am making a list...i haven't had time to sift through the european collections yet, but out of new york, there will definitely be some calvin klein, proenza schouler and narciso pieces in the mix...i will return to post some pics...

I know what you mean, kimair, about calling ahead ... it's frustrating when designers don't really show their stuff on the runway ... because if you live in the relative hinterlands, how will you ever know it exists? I think we both are in/near big shopping cities too, and it's still amazing how much you don't have access to. We have Celine, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, etc. here, and I keep feeling like there's some fashion power that I should be able to bargain with to trade these for designers I really want

I was hoping for lots more in terms of personal wearability from the European collections ... here's all I'm adding ...

This Lanvin pin (to go on Lanvin resort blouse if I can get my hands on it & it fits)



These YSL platforms (these I should actually be able to find locally)

So as mentioned in the new Gothic thread, I've bought this Marc Jacobs resort blouse for spring (the sleeves are actually puff sleeves to the elbow, they're just styled oddly in this pic):



I've also pre-ordered the Anna Sui blouse I posted above (plan to wear with black silk pants, don't know what else yet):



I also like this Alberta Ferretti skirt:



So, as you can see, all neutral colors.

Here's where I would like some advice. I came across some ruby jewelry that made me think that a raspberry color would make a really nice accent. Will probably do some ruby earrings and lipstick.

There's a bespoke shoemaker here, and I was thinking of having her make me some shoes. My first thought was grey, but it's tricky ... it can be yellow, it can be blue, and I only have one piece so far, and her lead time is 6-8 weeks. Let me see if I can get a pic of the shoe design I'm thinking about ...

So here are the shoes ... and my question is, what would you think of them in a raspberry color with the kinds of things I've posted--greys, ivories, black? As I've mentioned, I'm going for an Edwardian/20s look, my version of neo Gothic for spring.
