In Love Again ...

It's "beyond words" collections like Gucci's fall 2011, captured in such a tone that Garance Dore has achieved here, that made me fall completely in love with fashion years ago. And now, I'm falling in love all over again. This collection gave me that same feeling I had when Tom Ford was brand new at Gucci and Madonna wore his blue velvet hipsters and silk blouse so famously to the MTV music awards in the 90's.
My hats off to Frida Giannini for keeping an amazing spirit of glamour with this collection. I love that her influences for this season were Anjelica Huston and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine (love her voice). And appropriately enough for Oscar's weekend, Oscar co-host James Franco interviews Frida in the latest issue of Harper's. It's a good, interesting read.

If I could dive into Gucci, I would. It's just that good. I'm obsessed with the blue Gucci coat Heather posted on her site. I think it may be my new life mission to aspire to wearing Gucci on a daily basis. I just need to find the high paying job first.

I know that feeling 'in love again' - seeing something that makes you forget all the tired things you flip though.

This collection, especially the bottom two looks, light a spark for me. It's wonderful to see something like that - and then learn their influences (Florence and Anjelica ... two generations of bohemian chic) - and realize that you love those things too. you know what I mean?

These shots are so unbelievably awesome, I am almost in tears. Could I love/obsess over/want to be Garance any more? Florence Welch is SO the it girl right now, her voice and hair just give me chills.
