Yes yes I know I am already "late" with blogging about NYFW and you've probably already looked through the collections and picked out your favorite pieces, but since I think of this blog of somewhat of a mood board I'm still going to post my favourite pieces from the collections. After all, this blog does have "in my time" in the title!

Harems, drapey grey tops, chunky boots, leather and knotted belts - well done Gwen! Great, sexy yet wearable pieces. I want them all.

Proenza Schouler
I've loved all their previous collections and my feelings were no different for this one. Loved the colour pallette of gorgeous jewel hues, loved the sheer insets and strokeable fur trims. Babydoll dresses and chunky shoes = i want! And the icing on the cake - suspender stockings - the thigh's the limit!

Rag and Bone
Capes, shrunken jumpers and man shirts, cosy knits, thigh's on show, tweed and plaid just work should be a visual oxymoron but they are harmonious. And just in case my fairy godmother is out there, please please please can I have some of those knitted knee socks and chunky ankle boots with straps - that's not to much to ask is it?

More lovely harem pants and ankle boots I am lusting over. I want/need that ruffle skirt and fur trimmed hood jacket. Will def be incorporating a little bit of Thakoon-appreciation into my autumn wardrobe - doesn't it just look so pretty and poetic?

Alexander Wang
Although I didn't love this collection as much as his last, A.Wang still put together some great pieces. I adore those velvet dresses with draping details and sheer panelling - perfect for Xmas celebrations. His tailoring is superb and I'm glad to see another designer who bringing attention back to that frequently underestimated body part - the thigh!

Charlotte Ronson
Velvet, harems, grey tweeds, lace, a classic camel coat and a pop of blue - seen elsewhere I know, but that doesn't stop me loving them and I think Miss Ronson did an excellent job putting these pieces together. I will be buying some boots just like those and tucking my harems into them with pride!

Even though I am getting well and truly sick of this winter, the recent autumn/winter collections have given me a reason to look forward to wrapping up warm! I've also picked my favourites from LFW and MFW and can't wait to show them to you all soon.
