Jessica's Basically Amazing Essentials
Jessica De Ruiter's Basic Essentials lookbook for Shopbop is awesome.  I would wear every item she lists here.  They are very classic, well tailored, timeless pieces.  Among my favourites are the 3.1 Philip Lim pointy flats, BLK Denim Wool Blazer, Maison Scotch Tailored Camel Coat, and the Tibi Tess Jacquard Pencil Skirt.....Who am I kidding?  They are all my favourites!  Read Shopbop's full interview with Jessica here.

Soft and Sweet Fall 2012 at Jil Sander

Soft and Sweet Fall 2012 at Jil Sander
Jil Sander's Fall 2012 RTW Collection by Raf Simons is one that keeps catching my eye in magazines this month.  Every year there are a few pieces that get plenty of editorial space.  This year, many prints and patterns are getting due attention, but the two tone coat (above and below in different shades) in this collection trumps the aforementioned pattern play in my opinion.  The billowy sleeves and the generous volume of fabric in the body create a simple fashion cocoon.  I think that this coat is something that you could have in your closet forever, that you could wear whether 20 or 65.  There is something beautiful and timeless about a well cut coat.  Below, are several more pieces that stuck out for me in this collection.  I was especially drawn to the soft knits and pale colours that were chosen when, typically, designers come out with the deep plum, green, black, brown, and red shades in droves.  Do you like soft colours in the fall?

Camel Coat Craze - Globe and Mail
This Saturday, the fantastic Style section of The Globe and Mail featured camel coats as the craze of the season, which they undoubtedly are. The lovely ladies of Smythe were consulted for the article, and Christie Smythe offered up the tale of when she first fell for the style - it was a Calvin Klein double breasted camel coat for those interested. In any case, I loved that the first coat featured was the Wilfred Cocoon Coat. I posted about that coat here. I think that the photos done by the Globe showcase it even better! What a gorgeous piece.
