This collection looked like it came straight out of Meredith Melling Burke’s closet. LOVE.
Let’s have a little blogger love for Just JR. After stumbling upon this blog over the summer, I’ve been completely obsessed with it ever since. A master collager, the pieces are mini mood boards that combine bold graphics with black and white imagery, each perfectly conveying the feeling of the designer, place, or person. Add in the killer Photoshop skills, and you’ve got one fantastic artist. Below are some of my current favorites from the blog, and a look is definitely worth the time.

Louis Vuitton, Spring 2007
Did I mention that Spring 2007 was one of Marc Jacobs’ best? Louis Vuitton’s runway was full of breathtaking garden girls layered in pastels, gauze, and cotton. Beautiful floral fabric head wreaths and oversized candy-colored totes full of fresh flowers complemented the light-and-breezy nature of the clothes, and added to their covetable appeal. The wearability of each piece, despite the heavily layered styling, speaks to the talent of Marc and the Louis Vuitton team, and proves how timeless fashion can be.
Dolce & Gabbana, Spring 2008
Marc Jacobs, Spring 2007
Marc Jacobs has always had an eye for the original and unexpected. Spring 2007 was the epitome of this talent, and the layered all-white outfits that dominated the runway still stand out in my memory as enormous successes. Tinfoil hats, plastic flowers, and deceptively complicated shoes (one model famously removed hers mid-walk) finished out the show, and the perfect Japanese-bag-lady-going-to-the-beach look was born.
Oscar de la Renta, Pre-Fall 2011
Like all of Mr. de la Renta’s work, this collection was another phenomenal success. The standouts for me brought to mind Little Red Riding Hood, complete with bright reds, textured blacks and grays, and of course plenty of fur. Perfect for your holiday parties, the cold winter ahead, and running through the forest! He really does think of everything.
Tory Burch, Pre-Fall 2011
If Laura Ingalls Wilder lived in 1960’s Palm Beach, this would be her wardrobe. In other words, pure hippie chic at its finest. Congratulations Tory on another fantastic collection! I’m off to buy a vintage paisley mini-dress and some granny socks!
Lanvin, Spring 2009
In honor of the recent Lanvin x H&M collection, here is one of my favorites from the fantastic Alber Elbaz. He can do no wrong!
Erdem, Spring 2011
Erdem Moralioglu is definitely one to watch. I’ve been a fan of his since he first started and each season I can’t wait to see what he’s come up with. I want every single piece from this collection and it was very difficult to narrow it down for this collage! Check him out if you’re not familiar. Wouldn’t he be a fantastic choice to design the royal wedding dress? He’s so deserving of his own Jason Wu moment.
Diane von Furstenberg, Fall 2009
Who doesn’t love DvF? She consistently makes beautiful clothing that flatters women of all shapes and sizes, and brings a bold sense of confidence and empowerment to the wearer. From the wrap dress to a ball gown, Diane von Furstenberg can do it all. Plus she is the only person who can make me lust after a giant pom-pom hat! (I’m still dying for one…)
Alexander McQueen, Spring 2011
