Unless you are a southerner, you don't know what it's like to anticipate snow. A good snow at that. Here in Asheville, the weather is so bipolar that one day it is 60 degrees, and the next it's 27 with an inch of snow (hey that is a lot for around here). But right now they are calling for 8-10 inches! I hope it does so I can sit inside all day with a never-ending cup of tea, analyzing that day's fashion shows. Speaking of all of this snow, it makes me wish that I was in the Swiss Alps skiing with Regina Lampert in "Charade". That is where today's inspiration comes from, the queen herself Miss Audrey Hepburn.
I love the way that Givenchy has her in a full fur outfit, not counting the chic brown leggings. If only I had the courage to wear a fur hat in the winter. Since I've been glued to any electronic device that this past week looking at fashion week, I'm starting to see a little pattern in the Fall 2014 shows. Fur accessories. Don't get me wrong, a fur coat is flawless, if executed the right way, but I do think that it can be a little over killed. A fur clutch or scarf is subtle yet unexpected, a contradiction which I think will go a long way. Here's a look at some of my favorite snap shots from the runway.
