Fall 2012 Ready to Wear Favorites (Things I Could Actually Wear in Real Life & Not Look Totally Ridiculous)

So, I always do fashion-week-favorites-type posts, but this time I thought I'd organize them by theme instead of designer.

To start, I thought I'd throw together some of the looks I'd wear in real life. Or should I say - I'd wear in real life without many alterations / changes / whatnot. Truthfully - if I like the dress or outfit: I'd wear it. No matter how outlandish or costume-y.

If I somehow got my hands on a gorgeous evening gown: I'd wear it to the movies if I didn't have a ball to go to.

An extremely low cut dress or one featuring tons of cut-outs: perfect for sitting around putting together a blog post.

Right? Why not. I've never been one to shy away from wearing something I love just because I don't have an "appropriate" occasion. That being said, the following looks would fit into my day-to-day / typical Mallory life a little more seamlessly than some of the other ensembles I'll eventually feature..... now if only I could afford them. Ha. Ha. & ha.
