Yesterday, as I was carted around town in a refrigerated container meant to keep me from melting (Note: Not as effective as you might think in triple-digit weather), I stumbled across the Burberry shop on East 57th Street.

I was, as you might expect, stuck with a serious case of the Swoons when I saw in real-life detail what we have in store for the F/W 2012. More specifically, check out these excellent bow belts that bring Burberry’s signature tailored looks together in all their uber feminine glory.

The Fashion gods have intervened, and thus given me ample warning to prepare my own versions of these awesome belt/jacket combos. Fashion waits for no one, my minions.
