Pre-Fall '11 had both of those things in spades (lucky me).
Some of my favorites from the collection - which was HUGE- with top marks given to the perfect penny loafers, printed canvas wedges, and red sheer polka dots.
As you can see, we DO have a similar wavelength (with me erring on the side of BANANAYS) wearing some newly thrifted favorites. An enormous reversible cape-coat (black cotton/red wool plaid) and a sheer button-down in fluoro pink with giant white polka dots!!! A more perfect shirt has never been manufactured. Sheer polkys for all in 2011!
