A fabulous Fashion-isha friend recently requested that I cover Paris Fashion Week. And boy did I enjoy researching and preparing for this post. For someone like me who loves beautiful and refined fashion, I had such a great time going through all the delicious photos of runway looks, street styles and even the best shoe picks from the collections.

As I was going through the photos I realized some of the collections were from Paris Fashion Week of last October, showing the Spring 2012 Ready to Wear looks that are clearly defining the sorbet colored, ultra fem trends coming out now for spring. And, some of the collections are from the Paris Fashion Shows of last week where some of the most glamorous haute couture that I've ever seen was presented (as in the Ellie Saab photos below). 

Note: Many of the styles of this season are ethereal and use lots of shear fabric. I personally love these dresses for for their inspirational purposes but would wear them fully lined for a more refined and tznius look.

So take a moment to enjoy the looks that I've put together, and please let me know which ones are your favorites, and how you would update your spring wardrobe using some of these trends.

To me this is a dream collection...these colors define spring 2012
