Fall Fashion Shows in New York

File this under Another Good Way to Waste Time on the Web. Along with this week’s Olympics, which I’m crazy for, are the fall fashion shows held in New York City. I love heading to the New York Times website and looking at all the clothes. I kept finding things I wanted to share with my sister Christine, who is there in New York currently serving a mission, as she has such style and embraces different ideas in fashion easily.

This is not representative–just what I like this morning.
First up is Anna Sui:

Ralph Rucci had some interesting things going on with accents of textures. The jacket is pretty straightforward, until it comes to this gridded jacket front. Detail below.

 Okay, carry on. I’ve done enough time wasting this morning. I had a late night last night, staying up to watch the Men’s Figure Skating Finals, loving that Lysacek’s style of skating won out over the jumping Russian Plushenko.

As I watched I was also able to quilt on my long-long-long-term quilting project: my appliqued Medallion quilt that I began in Washington DC. For some reason the quilting is taking FOREVER. One reason is because I was trying not to use pencil to mark up the quilt top, trying to use masking tape to keep my lines straight. Last night I said to heck with it, and with a ruler, drew the quilting lines. It’s amazing how much faster I can go if I’m not struggling with strips of blue tape all over the place.

Last bit of news: we had an earthquake this morning, rattling my nerves. Ever since I was in the HUGE earthquake in Lima Peru as a child, any little shaking makes me tingle all over.
