The show I look forward to the most out of all the Fashion Weeks has been Saint Laurent. Ever since they dropped the "Yves" and appointed Hedi Slimane as their designer, I've been in love with the collections. It isn't, however, the traditional Yves Saint Laurent everyone has been used to, but at the same time, what do you expect from Hedi Slimane? The new collection did have some lovely leather pieces and is much more androgynous than past collections, but overall, last season was better. And the season before that.

Dr. Martens has released a new video showcasing their newest collaboration with model Agyness Deyn. The one minute video is really cute and shows off not only a new shoe collection, but an array of clothing styles designed by Ms. Deyn as well. Shop the new collection, which was just released this week, HERE.

Songstress M.I.A. isn't the usual Fashion Week face, although I'm sure she gets plenty of invites. This week, however, M.I.A. was spotted in Paris Fashion Week on her way to Balenciaga's Spring/Summer show. She also let slip some very interesting information: she's collaborating with Donatella Versace. While it's currently speculated the collaboration will be for Versace's sister brand Versus, which has seen quite a few guest designers, the collaboration will no doubt be epic. M.I.A. also did mention the line would be released in two weeks. Now whether the actual line will be available or if it will just be officially announced, we just don't know. More information in two weeks for sure though.

New York Fashion Week wrapped up this week with the usual suspects present at every major show. NYFW isn't the most impressing when it comes to all of the fashion weeks. New York has a very tailored and classic approach. Being safe with tailored separates was the norm pretty much everyday. The shots above, however, stood out the most. Still very tailored, but fun prints and accessories made the outfits stand out much more. London Fashion Week is up next.

My brand of the moment For Love and Lemons released a new lookbook for their collection entitled "Interview With A Vampire." I'm basically obsessed with it. All the lace and velvet, dark lips and black velvet chokers, not to mention the model is absolutely stunning! With all the items starting at around $150 though, the price can be a bit over bearing, even though I've already bought the Vienna dress (the one in the fourth photo). All the dresses are to die for and you can actually shop them every Thursday at the For Love and Lemons store in Downtown Los Angeles. The shop is inside their creative studio so it's pretty cool to see all the magic happening. Visit the For Love and Lemons website for more details and more photos from the lookbook HERE.

It's been a while, but finally an all girl group that's really worthy of being a bunch of foxy muses. Meet the band Haim, the beautiful union between three equally beautiful sisters: Este, Danielle and Alana Haim. While these Los Angeles natives have garnered quite a bit of attention for their looks and style, their music is what's really pushed them out into the spotlight this festival season. They opened for Phoenix on their tour earlier this year and are playing the Austin City Limits, iTunes and Treasure Island music festivals. What I really love about them though, is there's at least one always wearing Dr. Martens and all three don the unofficial Haim uniform of ripped jeans, head-to-toe black, dark lipstick and sleeveless tee's. Oh, and leather. Lots of leather. And how can you not adore three girls like that?

Right around this time of the year, when it's over 100 degrees and too hot to function, I start longing for winter. It's this time when my jackets suddenly look so gorgeous. Just hanging there, crying out to me. And I miss them. I just bought a denim jacket and destroyed the hell out of it. Then I put a patch that says "Eat Shit and Diet" on it, and just wait for the temperature to drop even the slightest so I can have any excuse to wear it. And for some reason lately I've been wanting a black faux fur goat hair coat. The kind that Jarvis Cocker wore in his Harry Potter cameo. Anyways, it seems tumblr agrees with me, since the only posts I've been putting on the tumblr blog are all about jackets: custom or otherwise.

So if you haven't heard 3.1 Phillip Lim is finally debuting his collection for Target next Sunday September 15th. The full collection has been released on Target.com, although you obviously can't buy anything until next weekend. Kind of like internet window shopping. Anyways, the collection has some pretty pieces for girls, but the guys pieces are what I'm really jealous over. The perfect motorcycle jacket and sweaters have been reserved for guys, although I'm not sure whether or not the chelsea boots are unisex or not. I honestly don't care, I plan to buy them either way.
