When I was little, I spent the majority of my shopping experiences in stores like Talbots, The Bay and Holt Renfrew. Obviously, I wasn't shopping for myself, but I used to spend hours and hours in those stores with my parents. My mom went to Talbots so often that when she walked in, the salespeople would greet her by name, and I knew the layout of the store like the back of my hand. Back then, I wasn't interested in fashion at all, and shopping with my mom was absolutely dreadful. My mom has stopped shopping at Talbots for many years now, and I pretty much dismiss it as a store for the older demographic, and as a store that doesn't quite "get" fashion. But while sifting through style.com yesterday, I saw Talbots under the list of recent Fall/Winter 2012 collections, and I decided to check it out. Wow! Talbots seems to have moved away from their usual shapeless tops and overly classic designs for something more fashion conscious! Maybe they made this shift years ago, and I just never payed attention, but either way, it's a shift for the better. Here's a look at some of Talbots' best Fall 2012 looks:
