The Dresses That I Wish They Would Make In My Size: #4 Autumn/Winter Dresses

Here is the fourth installment of clothes that I really wish they made in my size. If I could get them, they would make up the staples of my wardrobe. No. #13 A tweed riding jacket with tails, black velvet accents, buttons and mandarin collar, suede elbow patches, puffed sleeves and frilled cuffs. A thick jersey, burgundy, draped tulip skirt. No. #14 Three-quarter sleeved newspaper-print wrap dress with bow closing in matte stretch satin. The crossover goes all the way around the body again to define the waist. No. #15 Bardot-style off-the-shoulder¬† tee-shirt in ribbed cashmere. Purple tartan wrap-around kilt with leather buckles. No. #16¬† Berry coloured cable-knit, turtle-neck jumper dress with pockets. Teal leather cut out, three-strap waist belt.What clothes would you really like for Winter? Do you have that one idea of a garment that you’ve been searching for forever? As usual, if you see any clothes similar to these in plus-sizes, let me know!

A/W 2012 Trends Wardrobe Inspiration

Here is my inspiration for my Autumn wardrobe – the best of the runways in my opinion. There are some things here that we have come to expect from a/w collections – such as pumpkin colours, leather, tweed, tartan – done in a new way, and some very new, very 2012 things – oxblood, cobalt blue, 20’s style, pewter, embellishment and lots of gold brocade (especially from Dolce and Gabbana) and statement makeup – and some things that I¬†just really want – a kilt, a 40’s suit, a good jacket. What you won’t see here is lots of white, zoot suits, or plenty of other trends that I’ll be giving a miss!

What are your favourite trends for autumn/winter so far? What can you not wait to buy?
