This daylight savings time is really messing with me. Yesterday I had a poke around the Soho shops and before I knew it, it was super-dark outside and I decided to head home, have an early night. When I got home, it was pitch black outdoors and I was exhausted, so I thought I'd go to bed... until I looked at my clock and saw it was only 8:00 p.m.! Thanks, DST.
Anyway, I popped by some of my favorite stores yesterday -- Seven New York, APC, Via Bus Stop, and Kiki de Montparnasse -- and I haven't been shopping in ages, so it was super-nice to see all the new fall-winter merch in stock.
There are so many nice things in shops for fall! But, unfortunately, a lot of the things I loved loved loved are definitely not slimming! Like this empire-waisted deep-V plunge mini from Kiki (top right) -- sooooo cute, but not for girls with boobs or anyone with big thighs!
I also love this dress from APC, which is available, in store, in more colors than just pink and black. The super-light fabric and subtle ladylike not-at-all fussy pleating vertically down the entire length of the dress ought to be slimming, but because it's cut straight up-and-down, it's not really made for anyone who has boobs or hips. Gorgeous, though.
I also love this Jean-Pierre Braganza chunky woolly sweater wrap top, which can be worn as a traditional belted cardigan (bulky but so nice!) or wrapped around your neck (hot!). It's not the geometry of the origami -- I have that great Rick Owens wrap cardi that can be worn in similar ways. It's just that since this particular knit is so bulky in and of itself, wrapping it makes it look rather cocoon-like. Who knows, maybe I'll buy it anyway, it's so gorgeous. Anyway, I always think it's a good idea to invest good money in knitwear -- I tend to wear my favorite sweaters and cardigans year after year, since good shapes never really go out of style.
