Are You Ready for Fall?

I am! Well not just because it's hit the triple digits outside lately, although that is a good enough reason for me. Either I'm in the pool, heading to cooler beach climates, or cranking up the A/C. But really, fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is moderate, the leaves are turning all shades of gorgeous colors, the kids are going back to school and it's time to pull out the cashmere once again.

Dolce & Gabbana have put together one smashing ad campaign for the '09 fall and winter season. All shot in the glitz and glam of a casino. Looks like fur is still going to be popular, large shoulders and statement jewelry. But I particularly ♥love♥ the turbans, and yeah did you notice the glove on her headpiece? What a fabulous idea!! We've got a lovely turban hat listed here if your so inclined.

Shoulders ladies! I'm glad to see the architectural use of the shoulder as a focal point. Not just big shoulders but pleats, tucks, and different sewing techniques combine to make the shoulders sexy again. Do you like the pom pom fur treatment above or the coverlet below?

Masterpieces are worked into stunning fabrics, textures abound. And look at that scarf! I've got some mismatched gloves around here that are now going to be fashioned into something wearable as art.

Meow, I don't think leopard prints ever go out of style. And the wide obi style sash belts.

PINK and Black have always been a favorite color combination but PINK fur? It sure looks like monkey fur to me, I wonder if it's real or fake. And again the turban style hats.

Something about this just evokes Old Hollywood Glamour to me. The pose, the fur, the opulence.

So are you ready for fall or do you need to go shopping?

Models: Maria Carla Boscono, Heidi Mount, and Edita Vilkeviciute for Dolce & Gabbana fall/winter 2009.
