New Shoes...from my closet

Sometimes the best place to shop is in your own closet!  With the amazing early Spring we've been experiencing in the NY area, I've been doing an early reassessment of my Spring wardrobe. Really glad I did since I found these shoes which I had totally forgotten about.  Never even worn before...  Especially love the chic stiletto, metal heels!

Leather...for Spring?

For the past few seasons (especially for Fall/Winter), leather, either in trim or full pieces, has been an increasing trend on the runways.  It was a leading trend for FW'12 on the Paris runways for designers such as Balmain and Valentino.  Wanting to incorporate leather into my spring wardrobe (no way I'm wearing leather shorts!),  I love this leather vest by Karl (Karl Lagerfeld's new label).  The off-white, perforated panels keep it cooler and give it a great "sport" look.

Also love this Marni for H&M jacket (see below), especially the patent leather panels.  Great for cool evenings and will take you right into the Fall!

Not leather, but I had to include this Marni jacket! (see below) Similar in look to the one above from their collection for H&M, but with twill instead of leather. It's a great combination of a preppy, sporty and urban chic look.

Earrings - Love these!

Love the simple (ridiculously so, you might say), clean and sophisticated look of these earrings.  As a bonus, their lightweight design gives your poor earlobes a break from the big statement earring trend this spring.

My Alexander McQueen Scarf

Just bought a chiffon Alexander McQueen scarf which I had been admiring for a long time.  I love it!  Now I want it in every color combination!

Shirt: White Tank from Vince (have this in 2 other colors and wear it with everything!)
Pant: J Brand "Houlihan"(many seasons ago)
Shoes: Chie Mihara (last year's)

Topshop Floral Print - Inspiration #2

If yesterday's post was floral print inspiration #1 (ok, maybe inspiration is too strong of a word...), then this would be my #2.

Check out this cute (and very affordable) shirt I found from Topshop.
With skinny jeans and these Yves Saint Laurent sandals (see below), you really can't go wrong.  Also, makes for a great high-low mix!

Floral Print Trend...How-to?

Have to admit, the whole floral trend thing has been scaring me.  It conjures up images from my childhood of 
Laura Ashley dresses that wore me rather than the other way around.  Since my personal style preference tends to be a mix of minimal and urban chic, I've been trying to create different ways of adding a little edge to the floral print look.  

Below is one outfit idea:

My Celine Mini Luggage Bag

The new addition to my family (of bags): Celine mini luggage bag in smooth black leather

This bag has been sold out everywhere!  Waiting lists, etc.  Decided to visit the Celine store in Manhattan and voila!  There happened to be one left waiting ...for me.

The Oversize Clutch: Love it!

There's nothing more cool and sophisticated than the oversize clutch which is a hot trend for Spring and Fall 2012.  Ok, forget trend...this look is timeless and will always look great!

Even if the bag is not a "clutch" style, throwing it under the arm as in some of the pics below, gives your look instant chic.
