Fall 2009's new LBD: the leather dress

Fall 2009-Winter 2010 season has an exciting offer of LBDs - the ultimate staple of the feminine wardrobe. Among the "plethora" of sophisticated and very flattering black dresses, the leather(y) ones put a contemporary spin on the iconic LBD, although the "now" factor won't prevent them from becoming classical items themselves.

Pre-fall collections predict a neat season

Fall 2008 fashion shows have already begun and in this crazy and wonderful spin from rtw to resort to couture and again to ready-to-wear I took a peak at the pre-fall shows that ended just two weeks ago. If these pre-shows are meant to predict next season's trends, well, I have to say it looks like we'll have a smart sophisticated fall season, with structured silhouettes and muted metallic shades or rich, autumn floral hues. 'Seasonless clothes' says Michael Kors, great next vintage buys, I'd add.

Here is a list of my pre-fall faves.

I love these cropped jackets at Akris and the cream beige - soft gray color combination.
