Who knew the boring old squirrel, with the fuzzy tail could become somewhat of a fashion icon this Fall? Thanks to Lagerfeld, the squirrel is definitely the animal du jour, but don't count on it returning for a long time.

Karl Lagerfeld chose the squirrel for Fendi's icon this Fall for its dilligence and playfulness. The embriodery hardly looks like a squirrel doesn't it? In fact, it looks kinda chinoserie-meets-artsy at first blush.

And Marc Jacobs has some acorns to hoard when the cold hits.

There's also the charm bracelet to match.

I'm not a fan of these though. They look too teeny bopper.

Urban Outfitters

Lux All Over Print Modal Turtleneck, Harajuku Lovers Printed Thermal Top

I'm loving the knit-tops from Urban Outfitters. Unlike the luxurious plain-coloured sweaters on runways, they come in young, lively prints with mod touches which really channel some Austin Powers kitsch but still all so lovable.

Vintage touches

It's never expensive to add vintage touches to your wardrobe. Scour Salvation Army shops or flea markets for rare finds from the past. But if wearing someone's else's clothes makes you uncomfortable, shops nowadays stock up on designs that have old-school style. It takes out the fun of a digging for a good find at those dinky stores though.

Guess Willy Wonka made more than chocolate in his movie. A fashion statement, he did, with Luella Bartley showcasing those round bug-eyed sunnies for next year's Spring.
