More often than not, ordinary dressers (like me) refuse to wear designs from runway shows for the following reasons:

  • The designs are very out-of-this-worldly, it’s quite embarrassing, instead of uplifting, wearing them in public.
  • They seem to be patterned to a modelesque physique alone.
  • The costs are pretty expensive for average earners.

The last one being the most common, which also explains why many of us sacrifice personal style. We have to admit that better-looking clothes carry hefty price tags. We have to take note though that we don’t have to buy LV or Chanel-like garments  just to be considered in style; it is also a big NO-NO to buy fake ones, and worse announce that they’re authentic. There are alternatives to looking great without burning holes in your pocket, all you have to do is know the current trends and their look-alikes.

Time flies fast and soon we’ll realize fall is back,  and  the best labels to turn to for inspiration this season are Burberry Prorsum and Valentino. i’ll focus on Valentino in this post as I can’t get enough of the label’s 2011 pre-fall collection.

This reminds me of the Adams Family.
