Anthropologie - Paean Flats
After a long weekend of cleaning out closets, we’re so ready for a day of shopping and wish we had a fairy godmother who could wave her magic wand and POUF!, the perfect fall fashions would fall from the sky to complement our basically black (and sometimes gray) wardrobe.
Tory Burch - Audra Dress
But all we have is each other, and while that’s a good thing most of the time since we’re brutally honest (“When are you ever going to wear that?!”), we tend to be a bit conservative when it comes to color.
Mary Katrantzou - Exotic Vines Cashmere Scarf
Bijoux Heart - Cristal de Corail Pedant
So this time, we’re vowing to add some of the beautiful jewel and spice tones we’ve been seeing in the pages of fashion magazines this fall and get out of our black (and sometimes gray) rut!
J. Crew - Cafe Capris
Tell us… where do you shop for fall fashion and do you shop solo or with a friend?
Milly - Suzanne Yoke Top

Mary Katrantzou's Delightful Details
One of the cool things about having friends in the fashion industry (besides the free handbags which we get on occasion!) is learning about trends six months before the shows. And since our flowers are “couture for the home”, we always take into account what designers are buzzing about before we put a collection together. So while fall isn’t even on our doorstep, we’re looking at what spring 2012 has in store for us (at least according to Accessories magazine.)
Anya Hindmarch Clutch
Sweet Tart: the fresh face of royalty (yes, we mean you, Kate!) brings a modern twist to classics, and sassy accessories in candy-colored hues add a certain eccentric vibe to the mix.
Antonio Marras Scarf
Prairie Dust: a nature-lover with a Bohemian flair, this free-spirited galwears airy cottons and floral print chiffons and pairs them with hammered silver and stones from the earth.
Blydesign Liza Cuff
Classic Ease: an easy, breezy California style embodies this all-American girl next door and while she dresses with a certain minimalism (she likes to borrow from the boys!), she adds feminine touches like a gorgeous floral cuff.
Christian Dior Tropical Sandals
Tropical Traveler: this globe-trotter is attracted to tropical flora and fauna and isn’t afraid to wear splashes of color, especially citrus hues. Rio, here we come!
Matthew Williamson Clutch
Disco Diva: pull out your glitter, sequins and rhinestones and strut your stuff on the dance floor – this fun-loving star loves to attract attention with her bright and bold accessories and makes a statement wherever she goes.

Mary Katrantzou‘s surreal, three-dimensional Spring 2011 collection uses digital prints of images taken from Architectural Digest and World of Interiors to “put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room.” Makes you want to say “shut the front door!”
Or a garden?
Inspired by botanical plates collected in the eighteenth century, Carolina Herrera allows a girl to bloom in a modern yet feminine way. Her Spring 2011 collection is a garden full of flowers, no watering required!
We’re on the proverbial fence – would you wear one or the other or both?
