Me Wants It: Brian Atwood, Temperley London, Diane von Furstenberg and more.

Well, the weather is finally starting to cool down a bit now.  You’d think I would be thrilled because that means fall styles are around the corner, but now, all of a sudden, I find myself clinging to summer.  A few more 90 degree days won’t hurt anyone!

Nevertheless, this week’s lust list is all about fall and includes a few pairs of amazonian heels, lace and military-inspired trends and a dragon!

Let’s begin with this Temperley London tunic.  This is probably my favorite piece out of everything listed here.  I love the cutout shoulder and the way the intricate beading detail is incorporated into the design.  It’s such a fun piece, and if it didn’t cost $1,250 I would buy it in a second.  Alas, that is (quite) a bit out of my price range.

I love the silhouette of this Diane von Furstenberg navy pinstripe dress and the zipper down the back adds the perfect touch of unexpected character. Professional yet flirty.

Lace is a big trend for the fall.  This Ports 1961 sheath would be perfect for work.  The lining is a great autumn color, and the gorgeous lace overlay adds a nice touch of delicacy.

I love everything about this Diane von Furstenerg Pilton felted lace coat.  It’s the perfect shape for someone curvy and the lace panels give it a fun and unique look.  I would rock this all winter.

On the flip-side of delicate lace, this grey biker jacket offers a unique take on this fall’s military trend.  Instead of the expected leather, Isabel Marant’s design is made of a wool-blend.  Perfect for layering!

Moving on to footwear…. I admit I have a thing for Brian Atwood pumps.  I love the embellishments he adds to his designs.  These Harrison pumps are not only chain embellished, they are also braided!  And mauve!  Love.

These Christian Louboutin Bibi 140 suede pumps have a 5.5 inch heel with a 1 inch platform.  So what if I am 5’7 – I love tall heels!  These can be dressed up or down for the fall.

The unique shape of these Elizabeth and James Mason metallic pumps is what draws me to them.  I like the way the platform is designed, and the lizard-embossed pewter color isn’t too bad either.

Finally, I’ve always wanted a dragon cuff.  I love the way John Hardy incorporated some 18K gold into this design for the eyes… it really makes the dragon come alive.

How do you feel about autumn’s impending approach?  Excited?  Or are you still hanging on to those last moments of summer?

    the atwood detail is swoon-worthy! gurlie, after my own heart, adding extended height to an already tall frame. *big hug*

    I ADORE the Christian Louboutin Bibis…did a big blog about asking the fashion gods to post me all the things I want for Autumn/ Winter so they'd be there when I got back from my hols. Firstly, I should have added those shoes, secondly..nothing has arrived yet..but I live in hope!x

    OH, the Brian Atwood pumps. That braiding is just spectacular, and I love the color. Ugh, I wish I could properly walk in heels. (Also, I wish I could actually afford these/the Louboutins. Someday, someday.)

    This summer has been fun, but bring on fall! :)

    The Atwood shoes are soooo sexy. I'm daydreaming about a lace trench for sure. I've never forgotten this Versace one: http://wendybrandes.com/blog/2009/12/enthralled-by-versace-pre-fall/

    Oh, that first dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love the unique details.

    You're right about those heels, the embelishments are so unique and eye-catching.

    Beautiful post!

    I tried on the Elizabeth and James heel in black calf hair. Probably the most ankle breaking shoes I've ever tried. But they did look damn good. I was kinda sad I didn't feel like I could wear them without killing myself (something was off in the weight distribution, I kept feeling like I was going to fall forward) E+J is usually always a winner with me.
