I’ve Got Issues…

The arrival of my September issues in my mailbox is as exciting for me today as my back-to-school outfit and school supplies were when I was a little girl.

First day of kindergarten.

Since then I’ve become a loyal subscriber of all the fashion mags and can’t wait to devour them every month – especially the September glossies – now stacked on my nightstand, ready for my review. Here’s the quick & dirty of the season’s September covers and a fall fashion forecast for you, darlings:

Trends for Fall 2011 in a nutshell: there is a 60′s mod-chic vibe that I’m simply bananas for, along with loads of leopard, all sorts of fur (faux), booties, boots (knee-high and OTK), stacked oxfords, shifts, miniskirts, leather leggings, sequins, sweaters, knits and blazers. The season’s sartorial shades include bubblegum pink, buttercup, camel, classic creme, winter white, grey, and black – as well as deep and shocking shades of peacock blue, bordeaux, and the always perfectly pretty Pantone picks.

And of course no Fall collection would be complete without a fabulous coat – every girl knows that!

A fave Fall memory: Mini Medestrian rocking a white (faux) fur coat & matching hat, with her stylish Sis in an autumn plaid coat with matching cap.

    Oh, god, Jenn – the pics of you and your sister in those coats are so very 70′s and so very priceless!  Love.

    Even stylish back then!!!  Wish I could find a coat like that in a Womens Small (or medium).  :-)  Thanks for sharing.
