What outfits from the SS06 runway shows can you wear IRL?
In what degree do your personal style overlap with the runway outfits? For instance, I like the YSL show, but I can wear none of the outfits IRL. Meanwhile, I think that I can wear lots of outfits in the Hermes show (if I can afford them). What outfits can you see yourself wearing? Pictures are more than welcomed, and I will post mine tomorrow

I actually thought the opposite ... I would have nothing to do with Hermes clothes IRL, but I could wear some of the YSL, to be specific, the suede with pompoms, the heavy linen jackets or whatever those are, those are very wearable ... just not practical for my climate. I could also wear this if not for my climate (Lanvin, style.com):



I could also wear this Prada (but not with all the buttons buttoned!) ...



Already posted in Spring 06 shopping list items from NY runways I wanted. But overall, wearability is a huge problem.

YSL I'm talking about ... this jacket:



same thing I believe in black

^I think that the jackets are cool and wearable, but I am afraid that I can't replicate the YSL styles without the ruffles. I'll look trying too hard if I wear ruffles in Boston I guess NYC is ok

I loved the YSL and Lanvin collection esp. Lanvin along with others, but since I'm only 13 I can neither afford it or wear it.

Here are some of the looks I liked

the edgy ones:
Ann Dem outfit...at least the top
Balenciaga Tshirt
Maybe a CDG top

ladylike ones:
Moschino skirt
Chalayan jacket (b/w edgy and lady)
Hermes skirt (lots of my daily outfits are like the ones shown on runway...just my standard office style)
Roland Mouret top

Dresses:
That Lanvin dress; Chanel white dress (I was wondering if I could use it as a wedding dress...I don't want to wear something with a little edge); and most of the dresses made by Alberta Ferreti;that Miumiu LBD.

I always have an ambitious wishlist and then it will be slimmed down gradually

Caffeine, I looked several times at that Moschino skirt too! It's cute. And I think the Chanel would make a nice wedding dress. Nice picks. I also particularly like the other flat grey Chanel boots that were shown with that poofy grey/black/white plaid outfit.

These would be pretty wedding dresses too:



For me, I like this jacket--same issue as before (you can see what I was wanting, yes? )



These are the boots I liked:

^I like those, Ta-ta. Thanks for the wedding dresses. They are perfect for a beach wedding, I guess. Is that ok for a girl to use RTW dress as a wedding dress though? I don't really know the wedding culture in the States much. But at least Chanel has my size!

I like that jacket as well. I'll actually take a look in the trunk show to see what exactly the material is. It's interesting. For some reason I always thought that Chanel is slightly cheaper than YSL...maybe I'm wrong. I wish there was a YSL store in Boston so that I can look at the clothes closely.

I'm not that tall, so I prefer the boots with a little heels. I am not sure which pair of booties I'll eventually get, so I'll try them on at the trunk show as well.

talking about wedding dress, I think that this Roland Mouret dress will be perfect for a Chinese wedding

Well, I've seen people wear all kinds of things for weddings, but yeah, the long white dress is pretty common for the first wedding (not that you're going to have more than one ). I like it, it's very dramatic, and the bow really looks like you. I'm sure you're not going to like the typical wedding fare ... I think you should go for it

My impression of YSL/Chanel is different, but I'm sure as with anything else it depends on the pieces you're comparing.

I'm just about exactly your height but I liked the way the ties wrap on the flat boots--they look spunky. Don't get me wrong, I like the ones with the heel too

Runway for Everyday
I haven't been paying a lot of attention to designer collections since around 2000-2001, but I love fashion and I really want to get back into it, now that I've graduated from university.

You guys are probably the perfect people to teach me more!

Can you guys do me a favour, and post your favourite casual/everday outfit by designers (or separate pieces from outfits, that you like in particular.) I mean the kind of outfits that you or I would actually wear, or like the kind of outfits that celebrities wear in their candids. But I'm looking for runway outfits, obviously.

I hope this is not a repeat of a thread - if it is, I apologize and delete it.

I just thought it would be interesting, and completely separate from any elaborate designs or gowns that you or I wouldn't really wear normally.

I'm just looking for real fashion/style inspiration!

^ Me too, and the fact that Devon, being like a head shorter than all the other models, looks so cute in it

Thanks for the karma (that was unexpected lol)
