Jill S, 2011


I must admit that I am terrified at how fast time goes by. Not only, is it scary that we are in the second month of February 2011, but New York Fashion Week has confirmed that time just flies. Officially, we haven't entered Spring, let alone Summer, yet we are fast forwarding two seasons and going straight to Autumn/ Winter 2011/2012. But, hey! This is nothing new. I don't know about you, but I am sick of the sight of big body covering capes and thick heavy coats. I want freedom in my clothes!

However, there was one Autumn/ Winter collection which wasn't suffocating. Enter, Jill Stuart. Enter sleeveless knits, pretty dresses with a touch of gold colour, fox and owl printed dresses. Of course, there was coats, but they looked light & easy to wear. Oh, and I spotted bum-bags. (I really must start wearing mine now! If you want to have a look at my bum-bag d.i.y effort, click here). The Irish weather may not allow for such 'skimpy-ness' in the winter, but I would definitely suffer the cold to wear that sleeve-less knit jumper, clinched by that gold belt, of course! Jill Stuart got it just right with this collection. Amen.

What do you think of this collection? What collection has been your favourite so far?

thanks for your sweet comment, babe (:
well, as much as i love fashion and everything that comes with it, i hate the fact that we have to face winter clothes again although winter is not even over, really.. at least not where i live ha.
other than that i'm looking forward to some gold crust on my dresses and colours are always nice in wintertime (:

Hello, and thank you for another really kind comment on my blog, and for following! It really does mean the world to me.

I am going up to LFW next week, but i am still trying to get my head 'round looking at clothes for winter, when i have only just started planning my summer wardrobe! Crazy times. However, i am definitely with you on this designer! My favorite 'look' definitely has to be the last. Gorgeous! :)

I like the bright colors played with nude or black. I love wearing a silky dress in winter, but I must add some fancy knitted cardigan or a fur vest for warmth.:)

Lee Oliveira said...

I absolutely love this collection Sarah. That dress in the last photo is stunning.

I love your notes! I think I'm not enjoying looking at pictures of the shows so much because I'm dreaming of summer, not autumn/winter! Thankyou for your lovely comment!
