Spring in Bloom
Yes it's actually Fall (though they're forecasting an Indian Summer heatwave here in L.A. this week), but the Spring '12 runways were all about the big blooms in Europe. Look at this dress, it looks just gorge. But, as the temperatures finally start to drop am I really going to want to wear florals when it's maybe raining and cloudy and achingly cold? Well, if I wear some ribbed tights, a fur snood (yes, snood, it's a round scarf that you throw around your neck), and wonderfully warm boots, then the answer is yes. I think if you Fall-ify these looks then they're really destined to last for seasons on end, doesn't matter if they're technically "Spring." Add in some darker, and more importantly textured pieces (think flannels, knits, and yes, cashmere) and these blooms may just blossom during Winter.
