As aforementioned, I am in love with some of the new looks cascading down the runway at Fashion Week.

Especially those in the spring and summer collections (Zac Posen's new shapes are so smart. They make me want to host a sweet little garden-party shindig with sparkling limonade and petit-fours, followed by sips of mascarphone-topped flutes filled with raspberry champagne). Of course, this could just be my wishful thinking - that summer could last forever - *sigh* but alas, we'll just have to be tied over for the next 9 months with these views from the catwalk:

And so, a tip to the wise - ruffles are in!
