Musings on Fall Fashion

Eighties influences are all over these days from slouchy boots, balloon skirts and shoulder pads to Katie pegging her jeans and Mary Kate wearing leg warmers. This summer Chanel gave us florescent nail polish and Marc Jacobs gave us the perfect purple handbag. Now, we're nervously wondering, who's bringing back paisley? Trust us if you can't remember yourself, there was a time in the late 80's when everyone was wearing what looked like shower curtains and bedspreads. Hell, we had our own pair of Guess jeans with a faded teal paisley print and skinny zippered ankles.

Here's how it could happen: DVF will show a beautiful flowing dress in a just passable light blue paisley, and instead of letting that dress stand alone, everyone is going to copy her, especially Liz Claiborne and Ann Taylor.

Funny thing is we found this top at Banana and, well, it's totally do-able. Who's a slave to fashion?
