Milan Shows: Back in Black March 1, 2009

2279gacarblkOkay, the fashionista in me is starting to stretch and yawn in waking. Maybe it’s spring nearing. I don’t know if it’s the recession/depression (ugh!) or the change in format from runway hooplah to presentation, but the New York fashion week was REALLY QUIET. But I’m starting to get inspired by the snowball effect of New York followed by London followed by Milan. And there nothing like The Sartorialist to give a girl a little street fashion kick. Wow, blazers and skinny jeans, big time. I do love that rock-n-roll glam look. And why do people always look so much prettier in Italy?

Get your sartorial inspiration from Milan here.
