Runway Monday: Wear Flowers In Your Hair - Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2013 & San Francisco Fashion Week Schedule

Okay, to say the least that was an interesting weekend indeed. Not bad and not extremely great but . . . interesting indeed. I would not go into details BUT it would be one for the books . . .if there was such book about weirdly interesting weekends.

ANYWAY, This week is San Francisco's very own fashion week. It's not as big as New York nor as hectically scheduled but I'm quite excited to see the line up. Unlike, New York which is by invite only, anybody can also purchase your tickets here!

So if you find yourself in San Francisco why not check out a few shows and events.

Speaking of San Francisco and wearing-flowers-in-your-hair, we have Vivienne Westwood's Spring Summer 2013 for today's Runway Monday Review. If you're familiar with her shows, it is always a production. For Spring/Summer 2013 though, it is surprisingly toned down. We still see the usual suspects which are the quirky details and styling, and loose silhouettes on the more tailored pieces. But to my opinion a more cohesive collection than the previous season. The collection's more tailored looks consists of pieces that can be work friendly but yet fun enough to be an individual. On the other hand, the casual looks consists of great slouchy shorts,  plaid tunics and great prints that equally looks as handsome as the rest of the collection. I absolutely adore the worn in sweaters and the paper bag waist pants but would pass on the pieces with geometric prints. The accessories, especially the clunky bug necklaces and butterfly lapel pins are both fun and great statement pieces. The collection also showcase her signature slip-ons/ penny loafers and an interesting three tongue snickers. Eventhough I didn't miss the I-love-my-country feel to her collection this season, I thought it is actually a nice little break.
