“Something Mysterious This Way Comes”

Hands down, this is my favorite editorial to date.  The intrigue, the setting, the look, the CLOTHES. Although the styling is very futuristic and alien even, there is something very timeless about it.  Who wouldn’t still wear ANY of these looks?

LDV <3 Gucci for S/S 11

Women:

Gucci encompasses our favorite trends for spring in this line; it’s bright, sleek and oh-so-70s luxe.

Men:

With crisp trench coats, leisure style suits, and bags as strong as your jawline, nothing says class and cool like this collection.

.normaluisa f/w 2011

The last few days I’ve been sick in bed, which has given me ample time to peruse my new Indie Fashion Blogger friends blogs (hey guys!).  While doing so I stumbled upon this lookbook a couple of times and was floored.  The clean, classic, modern take on the 70’s romance trend is very unique.  I know I’ve been yelling for spring to come, but this line makes me very excited for fall again too.
