Sweet Memories: Betsey Johnson for Opening Ceremony

Betsey Johnson is having a total fashion moment right now...the look that she helped create in the 90s is now more popular than ever and this month some of her special archival pieces are getting a second life with an amazing new collection for Opening Ceremony. Here are some of my favorite looks!

Black Heart: F21's Faux for Fall

I'm really getting into shaggy fur vests for fall, and surprisingly Forever 21 has this great option, plus a rad studded motorcycle jacket. Not to mention they're cheap and animal-friendly!

Knitwit: Stolen Girlfriend's Club A/W '10

Halfway around the globe, New Zealand Fashion Week predicted the trends for that hemisphere's upcoming winter season. Stolen Girlfriend's Club hit it out of the park yet again with their knit-heavy collection, featuring badass western touches!

Slacker Generation: Snoozer Loser Fall '09

I'm so psyched about the contrast of sweet and tough in these pieces from Snoozer Loser's latest collection! They make studding look totally fresh.

Dark Horse: New from Bona Drag

One of my favorite online boutiques, Bona Drag, just got in some amazing pieces for fall from Obesity and Speed, Scout LA, and much more! Here are some of my top picks.

Flower Child: Moschino Spring 2010

It's so refreshing how lighthearted and fun Moschino shows always are! The designers don't always seem to take fashion as seriously as others, but still manage to create some lovely pieces. Plus, I'm a sucker for anything with hearts!

Young Love: Christopher Kane Spring 2010

Christopher Kane was able to make gingham actually interesting with his artful new collection, which was inspired by Lolita--a kind of subversion of ladylike, innocent looks. I thought it was a fascinating group of pieces, the kind you couldn't take your eyes off of!

Cut+Paste: Louise Gray

London Fashion Week is in full swing, and fresh talent abounds! I love the kooky colorful designs that newcomer Louise Gray showed--they're a welcome respite from the moody, goth looks that tend to dominate these days.

Acid Trip: Mary Katranzou Spring 2010

Mary Katranzou continues her mind-blowing patterns this season, but this time it looked as if the dresses were living, moving, breathing organisms. She should have handed out 3-D glasses at her show!

Know Your Numbers: ThreeAsFour Spring 2010

I'll never tire of ThreeAsFour's exquisitely abstract and sculptural designs, and this presentation definitely delivered on the design team's signature style. This collection was full of ethereal pieces that were so fun to look at! I'd feel like a superhero wearing any of these looks.

Delicious Dish: Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2010

A few bits of perfection from the Marc by Marc Jacobs show--I loved the jumble of colors and patterns!

Good in the Hood: Lindsay Thornburg Cloaks

Read about Lindsay Thornburg on Daily Candy today, and I'm completely in awe of the amazing "cloaks" she creates. I'm a total fan of the Navajo prints used for each style, and the draping gives them such a great dramatic look!

Suited Up: Jeremy Laing Spring '10

Jeremy Laing always does things a little differently, and this latest collection stays true to his unique perspective. I loved all the flaps and layers going on in each look, and everything looked simple and pretty in a modern way--just how I like it!

Peek A Boo: Showy Undergarments

Is it just me, or are lots of designers taking cue from American Apparel's new lingerie looks? The diamond-patterned mesh and lace bras, jumpsuits and undies were launched recently by the retailer and, as shown, they're perfect for layering!
