Oh the adventures to be had in this dress!

As much as I have a thing for white dresses, so do I with prints!

Enter: Marimekko.

Brought back from the 70s, the Kirjo print is a certain showstopper. Founded by Armi Ratia in 1961, Marimekko is a play on words — an anagram of Armi's first name and 'mekko' which means dress in Finnish. Marimekko's use of print and color is world-renowned for its forward-thinking aesthetic. 

I am captivated by this dress. For more reasons than one, as I will be living in long dresses all summer to shield my veins from the sun due to my EVLT and sclerotherapy sessions. As bad as my timing is, the experience thus far has been awesome, and hey, I will look cute (during the process and after)!

If you didn't get into sneakers last year (or the two years prior), here is your chance. 

With so many cool styles to choose from, you are sure to find something to delight! For me, it's Valentino's open sneakers with luxe detail. Crafted from smooth white leather and featuring a single metallic pink strip, in addition to those signature pyramid Rockstuds at the heel, these sneakers are in a category to themselves. As for color ways, there are many to choose from. Oh, the endless wardrobe pairings!

With the craziness of my schedule, I'd end up wearing these on the daily.

Over the moon for coils.

This style earring has been out for years. However, I am just coming around to it. As predicted, minimal floats my boat.

Thanks to Maria Black, there are so many beautiful choices, in a variety of finishes. This Danish-Irish designer launched her first collection “MBJ” in 2010 built on ambition and passion for precious metals and a fashion-forward approach to conceptual jewelry design. Maria continuously innovates the perception of body adornment in a contemporary prêt-a-porter approach.

I am loving these delicate and effortlessly cool 18-karat gold Lila Twirl earrings. They are handcrafted to curve around the lobe. And the 0.056-carats of diamonds sparkle in the light beautifully!

It's January and 70 degrees outside. What a tease.

Though I love winter (yes I do) the break has been nice. This month every year my focus shifts to spring pre-orders for clients. And guess who made my list?

Azzedine Alaia is one of the world's most respected fashion designers. Honest. Shy. Yet doesn't bow to the pressures or demanding timetables of the fashion industry.

The spring collection is full of sculptural silhouettes and meticulous craftmanship. And, oh the shoes!

If you didn't notice, the bomber made a big comeback this fall. And into spring it goes

While there are many to choose from, I am most excited about these. Valentino, Saint Laurent and Kenzo bring on the style personality with bright, cheery colors and prints, just in time for spring. These lightweight jackets amp up any outfit, from jeans to flirty skirts. And if you happen to prefer dark solids, they have those, too.
