My biological clock seems to go about 100 times faster than real time, thanks to things like fashion magazines and the internet and working in retail. This means I'm already both thinking about fall fashion (debating what sweaters I might knit) and wishing it were here. Ironically, my fall/winter wardrobe is sitting in the living room, still waiting to get put in storage! If only I could live in a world with no reminder of time or date.
Surely I'm not the only one with this problem, right? Anyone?
If you're interested, Vogue did an excellent article about this phenomenon in the last issue or so, the one with SJP on the cover.
In the meantime, I've dug up some fantastic WWNDW fall inspiration.
This is my new all-time favorite photo for several reasons (it is also now my desktop). First, the lady looks a lot like my Aunt Pam, who grew up in the 60s and still has a similar hairdo. Second, the outfit: amazing orange sweater, cute trompe-l'oeuil tights and THOSE SHOES. I must have them. Third, the car is just smashing, and lastly, it is an awesome example of a regular gal in a candid shot with some great fashion going on. Definitely a George Fayne outfit.
This girl on Flickr, Marciné, has a delightful style, somewhere between Bess and George. The plaid coat with the brown 60s-style outfit underneath is now jumping to the top of my want-to-have list.
I am coveting a pair of Darlingtonia moccasins on Etsy. Moccasins would be very George, but I think the blue ones with the flowers are more Bess. Would Nancy wear the navy with taupe flowers then?
