Don't Wake Me I Plan On Sleeping In

What I learned from the Haute Couture shows: I'm looking forward to a monochromatic, but not boring Fall wardrobe. Just look at the rich hues and attention to texture.monochromatic, color, bright, tights, runway, fashion, style, match, shoesmonochromatic, color, bright, tights, runway, fashion, style, match, shoesmonochromatic, color, bright, tights, runway, fashion, style, match, shoesmonochromatic, color, bright, tights, runway, fashion, style, match, shoes

Pictures via Style.com, outfits from Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture 2008.
For now it's not quite fall and I feel a bit like a dysfunctional 50s housewife in this outfit. Something about the shape is classic, but the colors feel fresh. It's the best I could manage after waking up two hours late for work! Yikes! I'm making up the missing hours by cutting my lunch, giving up my breaks and staying after work for awhile.

  5. How bizarrely ironic. I was listening to that song as I clicked onto here!

    But I am loving the monochromatic look. I've always thought that monochromatics look really smart when they're put together well.

    Your outfit is adorably cute. I love the skirt!

  6. I absolutely love the pattern detail of the white (or pale blue?)skirt, it's a brilliant idea ! The two last pictures are fantastic.

  10. I love the idea of wearing a monochromatic outfit in lots of different textures!
    I think my favourite is the purple silk dress from the Givenchy runway; I love the way the fabric folds

  13. great shoes, and lovely faded photos! oh i hate when i oversleep, it rarely happens but when it does my composure for the day is wrecked. last year, when i went to cambridge, england to do a little summer study program, the first night i set my alarm, but forgot to turn it on! oops, so of course, being jet lagged and all i got up 2 hours late, it was humiliating to show up late for the first day of classes :\

  14. I love that outfit, you look very classy and funky at the same time.

    Where do you work?

  15. Absolutely love the Jean Paul Gaultier dress, the colour just jumps out at you and the detail at the hem is interesting. Your outfit is lovely, and the checkered detail is a pleasant surprised. I realsied that you have very unique taste in your jewelry, all of your pieces are beautiful.

  17. Beautiful pictures! I love the monochromatic look!

  18. those buttons on the collar look great! subtle but oh-so-interesting to look at (: i think i can suggest that to my friend who has been quite compulsively collecting stray buttons

    ReplyDelete
  19. I loved the head to toe pink look. It reminds me of being 5 and refusing to wear anything other than pink.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really want to try and pull off an mono colour outfit, but its hard as the only thing that works for me at the mom is boring black :/

    and love the coral necklace in the first pic.

    ReplyDelete
  21. great colors in those outfits. an di love your skirt, the checkered details are darling.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lovely outfit as usual. :] & the postal service lyric made me smile.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I remember this collar! What an ingenious idea for a diy project. I've sewn many a-button in my years, but it is always because I have a tendency to mess with them and they fall off :\

    ReplyDelete

  27. I love the song you have quoted in the title of today's post . . . but I forget who sings it? And the plaid lining of that skirt is truly unique. Would you like to trade links?

    ReplyDelete
  28. im excited for monochromatic outfits too!

    ReplyDelete
  29. God I ADORE those photos you have up of the runway. TOTALLY the look I am going for. Oooh did you spend a very very very long time looking for them?

    Oh and darling do you mind if I pinch 'em and put them up on my blog, just for posterity y'know? I'll do it now and take it down if you object :)

  30. I love the button collar on the shirt - so cute & creative!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like the pictures you made!
    The colours are so bright!
    What kind of camera do you have?
    I'm trying to find a good one!

  32. Hey, great previous post and i agree with you on all aspects of it. Personally i think we should all stay out of "celebrities" Lives and i don't believe it's fair that we constantly feel the need to delve into their lives, when really it's private to them. I do however believe we can admire their style, after all it's none of our business to judge them on a personal level, as you said none of us are perfect.
    A wonderful post and a great topic to discuss.
    I love the outfit you are wearing in this post and i love the coloured tights on the models. I have to get some!
    Bye

  33. The matching tights are...TIGHT!!! It looks like we're going back to matching, which is fine. It takes away a lot of the hard thinking!

  36. I'm starting to look forward to fall now, and I'll keep all my coloured tights!

    Great photos, as always, I love the composition of the last one!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah the all one colour look is still hot then! The photos you have taken are really quite lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The uber chartreuse outfit looks awesome. I really love the whole monochrome look but it's surprisingly hard to achieve esp. if you add tights into the mix.

    Your outfit is so lovely. I love the hint of plaid in the wrap around skirt and those gorgeous coral necklaces.

  43. i think i would look like a complete fool if I tried to wear monochromatic outfits. maybe i will try it for halloween?

    the necklace is gorgeous. reminds me of Brasil. sorry to hear you woke up late for work and have to deal with all the extra stuff.

    hope your 4th weekend was super fun!

  46. i really loved all the textures in the haute couture, and all the effort+incredible sewing it needed!your necklace looks really cool, same with your button collar!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Most of your photos are really vintage looking, very pretty and unique.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Necklace! Pretty! Gasp!

    I wouldn't have thought of the "dysfunct 50s..." if you hadn't brought it up first. But yes, am looking forward to monochromatics in all their bright glory. I have seen that with a little detailing and texture in place, monos are actually quite easy to accessorize.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Two things I love are bright colours and couture, so I'm loving the above looks too.

    You look lovely, as usual. I like the red necklace.
