The Spring 2012 Collections

So, after the dust has settled a little bit from the chaos that is " Fashion Week", we now have a pretty good idea of what the fashions for Spring 2012 are looking like. Can I just say that as much as I love and adore fall fashion, I am pretty excited about all the of the vintage style influence on the runways. Pretty much everything from the 1930s Great Gatsby look on Ralph Lauren's runway,  the pretty pastel pallets on Jill Stuart's and Alice & Olivia's, to the 1960s mod looks at Milly.  It made me so giddy  to see a full appreciation and so much inspiration coming from past decades, and a journey thru all the ones I love, at that!. As a long time admirer of Kelly Wearstler's interior decor abilities, I was so happy to see her style flow into the world of fashion. Since collecting vintage clothing is nothing new to me, I am happy to report that I  have quite a few pieces already in my collection, "to play with," that are very similar to what fashion is looking towards for spring 2012. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the collections. These lovelies caught my eye and make me really, really antsy for the coming season.
