From left to right Miu Miu, Lanvin, LV, Chloe, and Collette Dinnigan – Ready to wear Spring 09

I think we are heading into a season of pairing suit jackets with shorts

I love it all, from head to toe! Minus the black cowboy hat ofcourse.

JB can testify to that… 

We were shopping on Friday before the fashion show, in hopes to find me a winter hat and all she kept saying hat after hat was “I’m determined to find one that looks good on you!” Only by the end of our shopping attempt her words of stylist wisdom were, “Melissa, a hat for you? Not so much…”

So it’s confirmed, clearly I don’t do hats!

Well kind of sorta; not really.

But how I wish…

It was ONLINE, but in my defence they would have showed at Paris Fashion Week because they do every year, they just opted not to this year.

But you are still invited…

What! VIKTOR & ROLF presents their Spring 09 collection
Where! The House of VIKTOR & ROLF
When! all day October 2nd, 2008

Basically the two decided to debut their Spring 09 collection online on their website, inviting the fashion publics at its entirety to their show.

Brilliant idea i’d say. Great outside the box thinking from their PR person, why not embrace new media?

And NO, don’t be silly — this is not the death of fashion as we know it, it is making use of other mediums available to creatively reach their audiences.

In an ideal world I would wear these to work…

Jean Paul Gaultier RTW – Spring 09

The fun, sophisticated, and fashionable office girl. Suited up to look professional from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the versatility to look city chic for happy hour. 

*Loved the accent with the belts, the use of the tie up sandals, and the sophistication of the suits.
