Ok, with 70 degrees predicted for Friday, it's officially time to get the Spring wardrobe together. After a major closet overhaul with all the "sorta/kindas" going in a bag to be donated, I've got a few empty hangers and about 4 inches of folding space to add some new pieces.
I WANT soooo much, but really need very little. Spring on the East Coast is over in the blink of an eye and I'd rather save my money and splurge on a few amazing pieces I spied on the runways for Fall '11.
So here is what I'm doing for my Spring add ons:
|I'll probably wear these J Brand Bette jeans every other day.|
They may be the only jean I wear all spring.
|These abstract leopard cargoes from Zara were too fun to pass up.|
I'll wear these with all my American Vintage tees.
|This Alexander Wang skirt is an alternative to my black|
Leger that I've worn to death - plus the color is more "Springy."
|You should always have a few novelty tees in your closet to|
keep your wardrobe current. This one from Helmut Lang is a keeper.
|Love this easy chambray dress from Zara. I could wear this |
today layered with a long sleeve tee, blazer, tights and booties.
|I want to wear this Shiplet & Halmos silk tee tucked into my |
Bette jeans or a brighly colored pencil skirt.
|Ok, so I bought this DVF top because it looked really good with the|
Alexander Wang skirt. but I'll also throw it on with my white sailor
pants and back to a fuschia pleated skirt.
|Great for work - Edme & Esyllte skirt. Bought this to|
wear with my Marni colorblock heels.
|Fun little skirt from Fei. Cheap and cheerful -|
couldn't walk away from this one.
|This 3.1 Philip Lim sweater will replace my favorite American Vintage|
sweatshirt. I love the pleat detail in the back!
|These Pelle Moda wedges are a no brainer at under $200.|
|So here's the Mac Daddy splurge. I LOVE these Zanotti wedges.|
And at $1100.00 I'm committed to wearing them 24/7.
Note: I have decided to pass on the Givenchy wedges even though I think they are quite marvelous. I've opted to keep the more budget-friendly version from Pelle Moda. I will be donating the difference saved to The Japan Society's Disaster Relief Fund: https://www.japansociety.org/japan_earthquake_relief_fund .
I urge you all to make a small sacrifice and give what you can. Every dollar makes a difference.
