"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel

It's been a while since my last post, which itself was, ahem, brief, but it's something I feel strongly about, and is a huge part of my fashion ethos. Currently I am in the middle of ACA financial exams - something that is not pleasant. Only a week and a half to go now. Then I will have my life back.

Sometimes I think I must be mad. It's only just started to become colder, and the days become longer, and I'm now thinking ahead to Spring/Summer 2011. That's always been me though, willing time on, rushing on to the next thing, and well maybe that's the whole of the fashion pack.

Before I start detailing trends for next season, which I will be doing in future posts, I will share with you a few things that have caught my eye, not least the avant-garde Prada show:
See the monkeys on the top?
I love the turquoise offset by the beige in Burberry's show:
This lilac Tommy shirt-dress I particularly like:

I NEED this shade of lipstick from Jill Sander's show:

The pulled back, sleek bun I also love!

This Jill Sander dress also:

And her orange sixtie's style shift:

A few themes are already emerging, no? Off-brights and pastels, beige, belts, tropical.
The word that comes to mind now?

Clothes are not just clothes. When they conjure up memories of places and people, they become much more powerful and are suddenly important.
