Yay! Spring is here! Crap what do I wear? It’s cold enough to snow during the morning commute, then, by lunchtime warm enough to get a tan. Confusing.

Cotton sweaters in ribbed chunky knits are about to be everywhere this spring. Black and white – you know I’m a huge fan for its seasonless versatility bridges the color palette gap between hot and cold weather. White is fresh and summery and black is always a chic happy color.

Chunky furs are a must and if you’re not willing to experiment or splurge with a bright fur go for a black cropped bolero jacket. Now is the time buy that teddy coat or that chubby you’ve been coveting because it’s on sale.

Black jeans are always beautiful. These 4 way stretch denim from 1961 make all my outfits  look sharp.  I mean, they fit in the waist, they don’t sag in the tusch or bunch up in knees which that means you look good all day. My secret for looking great in jeans? I buy them one size up so I look fitter and trimmer.

Designer sneakers: to buy or not to buy? Depends on how much money you have really to spend on a disposable shoe. Sneakers alas do not last…. BUT if you don’t have that Gucci money, but you want that Gucci feeling – mainstream brands like Nike and Jeffrey Campbell are chasing Gucci hard on the Fashion front. My kid hooked me up with the new Nike Air star studded comfy sneakers and they elevate every casual jeans outfit I own.

Ahh the “It Bag”: to buy or not to buy? That is the question my friends that plagues every fashion girl and her budget. I can’t stand to make a major investment in a handbag and then see myself coming and going with every third fashionista passing me on Madison Avenue with the same cross body or pocketbook that costs as much as a mortgage payment dangling from their wrists.

Call me crazy, but I do like to hunt and dare myself to take chances when it comes to getting a new bag. This baby from Tibi has all the elements that are trending hard for the fashion insider set: Menswear motifs in the plaid, bright mixed colors in the handles and corner detailing and a very functional size to boot. I’ve had this bag a month now and it turns heads or even invites envious stares where ever we go.

To recap:

  • Black and white bridges the gap between seasons.
  • 525 America is a treasure trove for sweaters.
  • Now is the time to invest in that great cropped fur chubby. Think the outnet.com
  • Premium black denim jeans make everything look smart. Loving DL1961.
  • Desinger sneakers from Nike or Jeffery Campbell save the day.
  • Hunt down a lesser seen unique It Bag Tibi and Agnes Badaddo are fashion insider favorites.

Happy Shopping And Happy Spring!
