Fendi packed a punch on the runway last September for spring 2013. From the color palette, textures and cuts to the accessories and makeup. Out of this world! Probably the best Fendi collection yet.

One of my favorite color pairings was an unexpected mustardy-daffodil yellow and bright peach. Delish! As for the accessories, the handbags slated for spring are gorgeous. Those studded dice attached to a few of them — eye catching fun, that may never hit the stores. However, the bangle bracelets will. And they are definitely on my list.

You know how I feel about Chloé. Well, you can bet that I'm also diggin' the See by Chloé line. It's pretty fantabulous!

Light leathers hit the streets this spring, providing many options to toughen up your look. The continuing trend of pattern on pattern allows plenty of room to take a little risk (come on, you know you want to). And this practical, not to mention adorable, jumpsuit equals instant chic. For those in search of comfort with excellent styling, this is your collection.

While we're on the subject of lingerie, can I please share one of my all-time favorite beauties with you?

Helena Christensen, you are delicious.

This bodysuit by Helena Christensen for Triumph (directly below) will be available soon. Along with other pieces in her stunning collection. The danish fashion model, who forever changed video with Chris Isaac in Wicked Game, continues to bring innocently sexy to you.

If Helena doesn't make you want to buy beautiful lingerie, nothing will. And February's the month to do it, so go already!

pinklingerieDelicate. Feminine. Beautiful.

I am crushing on this Mimi Holliday by Damaris Bisou Bisou Cherie lace lingerie set, just in time for Valentine's Day. It's just so pretty. 

I envision wearing this under a pencil skirt and blouse. Or, jeans and a tee. Or, under a fur coat with nothing else in between. 

There's something to be said for wearing frilly extra specials under ordinary clothes. They don't have to be seen to capture attention. And they don't have to be for anyone but yourself. Of course, if your significant other happens to catch a glimpse, the better.

Available at Net-a-Porter

janbathingsuitIs it that time already?

Believe it or not, yes.

For the best selection of bathing suits, January is the time to shop. You'll also get a little extra attention in the stores, as only those heading off to tropical destinations are buying swimsuits.

Resort season is on
, so take advantage of what's out there. You don't have to commit immediately. Just an hour of your time to see what strikes your fancy.

Not sure what shapes serve your body? Check out these suggestions. And consider picking up a bottle of self tanning lotion!
