New York, New York F/W '11

It seems that New York fashion week has come and gone in a flash again! It was as exciting and as great as ever, and I liked that the public got to feel more connected to the shows through Tumblr and the 24 bloggers they sent to NYFW. I loved seeing all their pictures, and combined with twitter and live feed shows - I felt like I could really be at all my favorite shows! So before I get behind the pace and the rest of the fashion weeks finish before I can post I wanted to share my favorites from New York. I really couldn't narrow it down, so here's my top ten!

Proenza Schouler - No surprise here, I'm absolutely obsessed with everything the Proenza Schouler boys make. This collection, no words, just love!
Marc by Marc Jacobs - Love the color palette used here so much, and I love the animal prints - the leopard print and the deer motif prints!
3.1 Phillip Lim - another favorite designer of mine, love the pops of color here and the raglan sleeves are a great touch!
Rodarte - Rodarte is definitely becoming one of my favoites. While the pieces may not be as easily wearable as others, there's something about them that is so feminine meets tom-boy that I love.
Vena Cava - 90's? check. Black? Yes. Rose-tinted hues? YES. Three of my favorite things at the moment all together in one place!
Jill Stuart - This color palette is simply amazing - the navy, mustards and oranges are definitely something I can see myself wearing. And I can't help but absolutely love the fox and owl (hello, I love owls!!) prints.
Jenni Kayne - Jenni Kayne is a designer that I came to really love thanks to my internship at Glamour, her stuff is just so cute and wearable. I loved all the mini dresses in this collection and also the pops of bold hues.
Rebecca Minkoff - What I loved most about Rebecca Minkoff is the over-sized sweaters. Those are basically my staple item right now so I can't wait to keep wearing them next year! I also love the subtle colors mixed with neutrals, definitely every-day wearable.
Band of Outsiders - This collection speaks to the grunge-y side of me! The oversize sweaters, the neutral colors and long hemlines all look so good together.
Timo Weiland - Another designer that I learned through Glamour, I was excited to see what Timo Weiland would do for F/W. I love all the jackets and metallics!
