Back in September, I spent hours pouring over SS13 runway photos from NYFW (and a few from the following week in London). I created these collages of my top five looks from lots of designers I love, but I never actually got around to posting this because I was too busy using these photos to help me clean out my closet. Maybe you think I was crazy for caring about spring/summer fashion when fall was around the corner, but having some inspiration in front of me as I was putting away my summer clothes was a pretty good indicator of what I probably wasn’t going to wear again. It enabled me to donate and sell some clothes and shoes instead of cluttering up my space by storing them for the winter.
The entire month of September went by in a blur, and then I figured it was way too late to post these, right? But now that its 20 degrees and snowing, I’m ready for spring. I’m ready for crisp white, bold stripes, watercolors, fun dresses, shorts, sandals, sunglasses…you name it. So even though this is technically six months late, I’m posting this now. I obviously won’t be wearing any of these exact items in the upcoming months, but I am using all this inspiration to create a bit of a wishlist. (Before the next Fashion Week happens in two weeks, and I have to start all over again.) =)
