Fashion took over New York City last week. High heels, tall women and lots of flashbulbs--all in celebration of clothing and accessories. We followed along with the fall 2011 fun, and we even found a few items we'd add it to our closet (plus a few items we just want drool over). Let's talk about ways to integrate these looks into your wardrobe Kicking things off with the sheer look. It remains important into fall. Need proof? Check out BCBG--this is completely wearable when layered as shown.

Fur and draping were on display at the Donna Karan show. We loved all of the feminine suits and this yummy pearl gray color. Isn't the neckline gorgeous? Donna always knows how to make a woman look good.

Michael Kors sent this jumpsuit (or is it 2 pieces?) down the runway and I swooned. I love the neckline and think this could be very flattering on many figures as an evening look. Pants were VERY important in his collection--I'm adding evening pants like these to my wish list.

Pamella Rowland designs very dressy clothing. Hard to interpret for my life, but had I a ball on the calendar, this is what I would wear. The fabric is dreamy and do you see a trend in the neckline? Looks similar to the Michael Kors above.

Nanette Lepore may have had my favorite collection of the season. Her fall collection was delicious. This flowing top was a favorite. I'd like to see it in a tunic length to make it more wearable--but the color? Sublime! Everyone can add a touch of aquamarine for fall.

Ralph Lauren has China on his mind when he dreamed up this collection. As a Ralph Collector, my top investment would be this dragon red smoking jacket. I'd wear it with leather jeans or a black pencil skirt to make it a little more racy.

L.A.M.B. walked some amazing prints down the runway. I'm trying to embrace print mores, I think this dress might break me of my boring solid ways. I'd pair it with tights and ankle boots.

Vera Wang was one of many designers to hightligh fur. I guess that means the economy is bouncing back. Don't know if I could pull off the fur, but mark my words we'll be seeing plenty of lower-priced faux that'll look great without the guilt.
