Shearling and leather and dragons, oh my. Staying on trend with many other Fall 2012 collections we’ve seen, Vivienne Tam used rich colors like burnt orange, eggplant and forest green to meld ethnic prints with sleek tailoring. Mongolian fur collars topped wool coats worn over skirts and pants of lustrous fabrics. Lace dresses were paired with wool trousers for daytime-chic outfits that could carry into the night. For the working girl who doesn’t want to compromise her free, ethereal sense of style, Tam’s collection will have the boho-pros lining up around the block.

I stole my first pair of platforms from the Spice Bus in 1997 when Anglophilia was all the rage. Collector of vintage bags, vinyl and kitchen appliances. My dream of becoming a butcher is momentarily on hiatus so I can teach you how to wear muumuus and apply false eyelashes. Follow me on Twitter @CrystlMeatballs.
