pure perfection

I know I'm a little late considering London Fashion Week ended just about a week ago, but now that I finally have some free time to look through the fall shows I just felt the need to show some looks from Mary Katrantzou - the artistry and intricacy that go into her prints are really just astonishing! I love looking through the London shows, as there is so much more freedom and whimsicality that go into their collections as opposed to the, albeit more wearable, much more sales-driven New York shows (I mean, this isn't true across the board, but have you looked at the Central Saint Martins show yet? Fascinating, but probably not going to be seen walking down your average street any time soon). 
  
I haven't really been a fan of the peplums that have been cropping up all over lately, but surprisingly Katrantzou kind of makes me like them - that sleeveless dress I showed second with the box-like drop waist or the gown at the end? Absolutely gorgeous, and if I had a spare couple thousand dollars sitting around, I'd wear both in a heartbeat. And back to her prints - the ornamental lawn dress? How amazingly detailed is that? It's really quite breathtaking.

And there end my raptures on Mary Katrantzou. To give you a little update on my life, today I went down to the new pie shop near Georgetown and bought myself a miniature pumpkin pie, then went back to my room to watch some How I Met Your Mother. So, needless to say, it's been a pretty satisfactory afternoon. Hope you're all having a lovely week!
