little black cat

I am literally dying of anticipation for the Jason Wu release tomorrow morning! I recruited my roommate (who is more sexy Brigitte Bardot than gamine Audrey Hepburn) to help me scrounge up as many of the following items as possible… I think what finally did me in was that little black cat with the red bow–cute beyond words! Are any of you waking up bright and early to face the inevitable mayhem at every Target? What do you hope to pick up?

After what seems like years of either androgynous or bohemian-inspired looks ruling la monde du mode, it seems as though ladylike elegance is packing a strong punch for Spring 2012. This is particularly exemplified in Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 RTW Collection, which seemed to go back to its classic origins (doubtless in part due to the Galliano controversy earlier this year.) Regardless, I have always been a huge fan of Dior’s ability to create classy and timeless pieces that incorporate modern elements in shape and construction (cases in point: the leather skirts, and sheer blouses.) And it certainly doesn’t hurt that wearing Christian Dior feels like stepping closer to channelling Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco…. Enjoy!
