Burberry Fall 2013 1st Take From Me...

watched the live show via video this morning, and these were my thoughts
as the models cruised the catwalk.

leather skirts, very very nipped in and narrow, longer hemlines,
blouses tucked in, ladylike styling,
low heeled shoes with everything, literally everything,
heart-shapes on everything

classic trenches with gold or silver metallic embellishments

burgundy polo shirt tucked  into an embellished skirt, like with short fringe

military precision

giraffe prints with bold stripes

but, somehow, seemed a very somber collection,
except for his love affair with grommets.

normally we don't think of Fall when Spring/Summer for us has not yet appeared,
however, I do believe seeing these collections gives us a very good idea what our
transitional looks, and outfits which can be worn 12 months a year, like here in Texas,
can be filled in with for now.

these longer hemlines and low shoes....

I love it !!s

now, I'll wait until writes their commentary
to see if I came close to their review.

Always such style and class here at your blog, Marsha. I think I want every single outfit on this page!

Thank you for your visit today; I am flying out to see some family, but will take in a little rest and read, read, READ!

Much love, Anita

I like the lower heel...Victoria Beckham's collection showed the lower heel too...I'm not a fan of the collection here...but I'm still loving my trench ;-)
Have a great week, Marsha.

I'm not much of a grommet or giraffe sort of gal and I'm still trying to figure out that first skirt, what is going on with that thing? Love lower heels big fan of those!

Enjoy your evening Marsha!

I think it's leather at the top with a plastic (yes, PLASTIC) bottom. Even had a coat in this material. Yawn.

Marsha, Burberry is classic! My Burberry coat is close to 40 years old, came from Cathy, Dave's first wife and the coat still looks fabulous. It's a lot better constructed than the Burberry's being made now and I still feel like a million bucks when I wear it!
Yay Burberry!

I'm all for the longer hemlines and low shoes. '-) That said, I can't envision my body in any of these.

I´am totally in Love with this style,Marsha!
And the color palett is mostly favorite for Autumn...
It´s modern and comfortable low shoes,may be not so much glamour and sexy,but very sweet and very wearable!!!

Hugs to you,
