FashionStreet Spotlight: NYFW F/W 2012

 
    
 
Fashion Week is now synomynous with street style. I remember the time where I got most of my inspiration from the shows, but now I find myself more and more engrossed in the world of street style. To top it all off, I was able to glimpse some of the greatness that is the street style during NYFW. I picked some of my favorite looks below, plus, I added a special Sh*t Fashion Girls Say video after the jump. Enjoy ladies!

FashionNew York Fashion Week F/W 2012 Picks, Part Two

New York Fashion Week may have drawn to a close, but the designers certainly threw down the fashion gauntlet, bringing fantastic looks ranging from ready-to-wear separates to opulent gowns that dreams are made of! So let’s take a look at some of our favorite looks for Fall 2012!
 

 
Easy breezy bohemian print dresses that we all love to wear weren’t the only look on Charlotte Ronson’s runway. The sophisticated streamlined knits were not only wearable, but fun!
 

 
Project Runway winner Christian Siriano has shown his beautiful designs at NYFW before, but this time he brought out the creatures of the night with his vampy designs! The inspiration was the 1933 B-movie “Vampire Bat.” This came across clearly with flowing capelet gowns paired with dark pouty lips and subtle prints
 
 
Fashion rookies, Creatures of the Wind, evoked whimsy and wonder when their fantasy-inspired looks took us to another world. The collection’s inspiration was the seventeenth-century book, The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Fairies, which comes across in the quirky outwear paired with unabashed bright colors and patterns that clashed wonderfully. The ethereal white gown took our breath away! 
 

School-girl chic dominated Derek Lam’s show with vintage wallpaper florals paired with sleek leather pencil skirts. It was like taking a very fashion-forward trip the library! The gold-dipped oxfords are definitely a must have!
 

 
Floral-embroidered lace, berry-hue dresses, and patent platform boots stood out at the Jill Stuart show, pairing soft and sexy elegance with a bit of an edge. The outlined collars were a great spin on the peter pan collar trend!
 
Monique Lhuillier
 
 
It’s very easy to get excited for the coming Oscars after seeing Monique Lhuillier’s fiery gowns! With lava-like prints on long and lean silhouettes reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour, Lhuillier’s collection did not disappoint!
 
What were some of your favorite Fall 2012 runway looks?

FashionStreet Spotlight: Sao Paulo Fashion Week

 
I am a huge fan/follower of street style around the globe. I love discovering local flair and being able to be inspired by it and interpret it into my own wardrobe. So I thought it was about time we brought some more street style fashions to the Lulu*s blog so you ladies could be inspired just like me!

A couple weeks ago Brazil had it’s fashion week, and Facehunter, an awesome street style blog, caught some amazing fashion and flair from the patrons of the shows. Check out some of my favorite outfits below!
