Dreaming in Couture

I must have been a Parisian socialite in a past life because I love to see gorgeous couture creations and daydream that I have somewhere to wear them. Ellie Saab's one shoulder dress (top, Fall 2009 Couture Collection) is so classy and beautiful. The detail and handwork that went into this is obvious, and the billowy sleeve creates a lovely and sensual shape. The last two pictures from Christian Dior's Fall 2009 Couture Collection are equally sensual with the bits of lingerie peeking out from the deconstructed lines and over the top hats. I adore the elbow length gloves, I wore a pair of leather ones with a vintage fur stole to a Christmas Party this past year and I couldn't help but feel like I belonged in Paris. Dior's collection screamed 40's pin-up, to see more go to and view slide shows of other designer's couture collections for Fall.
