Runway Inspiration: Whimsy

whimsy — n ,
1. a capricious idea or notion
2. light or fanciful humour
3. something quaint or unusual

whimsical — adj
1. spontaneously fanciful or playful
2. given to whims; capricious
3. quaint, unusual, or fantastic

Whimsy is one of my favorite words in the world. Perhaps it's because I love fairy tales and magical realism or because I'm a bit unusual and capricious myself, but I love all things that can fall into the whimsical bucket. Since it's Halloween, a day filled with magic and wonder and fantasy, I'd like to celebrate my favorite whimsical looks from the Spring RTW runway shows. I hope you can see why I find each one whimsical, even if I can't quite explain it myself. :)
