Fashion Friday #31 - Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 Pret -a-Porter

It was not until I looked through my post did I realize that it has been almost a year since my last Fashion Friday post. All I ask for is your forgiveness. I know there is being late with something but this is ridiculous.

  Anyway,  I can't believe that this coming fall fashion collections are coming out when we are not even done with this winter, but they are. Ralph Lauren has shown his Autumn 2015 Pret-a-Porte collection and I, like real fashion critics, love the clothes. Then Ralph Lauren does not go over the top on the artistry of his clothes. In other words, his clothes don't go straight from the runway to a museum to be looked at Ralph Lauren's pieces go from the runway to the street or some gala. Granted most of us can not afford the straight to the street pieces let alone the gala pieces but they all look wearable.

  Some of his pieces look to have fur but there was a statement at the bottom of his New York show notes that read:

"Ralph Lauren has a long commitment to not use fur products in our apparel and accessories.
All fur-like pieces featured in the collection are constructed of shearling"

  Nice to know that is not fur. I used not to have a problem with fur wearing but I have out grown my fascination with fur and feel that it is okay to wear if it is part of your way of life i.e. Eskimos, Aleuts,etc. and native inhabitants of other countries close to the Arctic circle or in mountainous regions where it gets bitterly cold (no I do not mean the Northeast and Northern Central parts of the U.S. right now).

  Alright off of my soapbox now. So...without further ado I give to you some of Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 collection.

Silk crochet and fringe


  A friend said, roughly, when she saw this photo, she never would have thought of putting a Fedora borrowed from menswear with a lace dress, but on her it works. I love this white floral lace dress with the Fedora too.

To me this next outfit is 'Annie Hall' or Dianne Keaton taken up a notch.

This one kind of is 'Annie Hall'-ish as well.

Minus the shearling hat THIS is 'Annie Hall'

Socks with sandals? Really Mr. Lauren? Sorry love no dice from me on the footwear but the rest is okay.

If your flat on top great look but if your not...Nah...not a good look.

Almost looks like something is molting behind the model but it's just the jacket that was shown before this outfit.

The molting jacket/coat

Feel of the 1970's. I would so wear this if I didn't think I would either wash out or match it but then the white/off-white would be worse on me.

 The hat with this dress escapes me

Last one
