(please enjoy with a large dose of Not Taking Seriously Juice™)
SOOOooOoOoO many people are all, “HOLLY OMG whaddya think of fall 2016 runway lewkz PLEASE TELL MEEE” and I’m turrd of repeating myself slash just a turd, so here are some of my faves:
I hate to spoil things SPOILER ALERT! but fall 2016 is all about tiger stripes, animal print, etc. etc. AS IF this was remotely revolutionary. Animal print has only been “IN” since the dawn of time. Adam, Eve, and Lisa Frank, amirite?
Here are some more zebra lewkz. I want those pants. Also I am hella flattered that my bae Izzy liked my new Docs so much she put them on all her models.
I have never heard of this person but I am LIVING for these dots, pastel pink, and the fun runway (FUNWAY?!) background. Also Olly straight up stole the different-color-socks idea from Tavi circa like 2008. Did I mention I’ve been reading Tavi’s entire blog from the VERRY BEGINNINGGGG? It’s only the entire inspiration for this entire post and I am loving it in its entirety.
No idea who/what Preen by Thornton Bregazzi is, but pink sequins AND a long fluffy peach coat? YES PLEEZ.
Saint Laurent is me if I were rich and best friends with a snow globe filled with glitter and also the ’90s PLUS had no fear of flashing the whole world when I sat down because DAMN those mini dresses are mini! Am seriously considering wearing bike shorts under tunics/dresses all summer long even though that is like the epitome of uncoolness.
Jake says I “would like Chanel” or Scream Queens or both but we’ll have to settle for this collage. Apparently Karl Lagerfeld is the most powerful man in the world/god himself etc. so he made his runway look like an airport. Or something? I have no idea but I like the fishbelly pink look of #3 and the bright colors in #1 and #4. Rich Lady in the Security Line, aka #5, I could take or leave, but her sunglasses-esque blue eyeshadow is nice.
Never heard of Akris either but remember what I said about animal print/leopard spots/tiger stripes? PROOF! Also that hooded cape/coat in #6 is the most badass Trinity-from-the-Matrix-goes-on-a-safari thing I’ve ever seen. Aaaand now I need tall orange boots. Curse you, Willie Akris (or whoever you are)!
Obvi I won’t be BUYING any o’ this BUT I’m hoping to go back to thrifting a lot. Revisiting Tavi’s blog makes me want to layer lots, mismatch prints/patterns, find vintage skirts on Etsy, and generally not give an eff. Also wear colorful socks with sandals. Easy to do when you’re 13 and 4’11” and freakishly elvin-cute, less so when you’re 32, but we’ll see…
