During New York Fashion Week I ran into a super stylish girl sporting these Celine frames as eyeglasses, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. I always lean towards tortoise for thick frames because they don’t look as heavy on my small face. I love that these frames have the best of both worlds, solid and tortoise. As sunnies or everyday eyewear, I’d wear them around the clock.
Bonus! They are on sale right now, get them here
In recent years, my style has become streamlined and paired down. Focusing on simple and strong silhouettes in an edited color palette makes for a classic and timeless wardrobe. Keeping these things in mind when shopping for Spring 2013, I found that H&M’s brands have a lot to offer. The newest addition to the H&M group entitled, & Other Stories has amazing shoes and accessories that would fit seamlessly into my existing wardrobe. I’ve always been a fan of Cos‘s simple, and quality designs for years, this season is no exception. Unfortunately for me, neither brand ships to the US so. Fortunately though, H&M‘s Spring 2013 Conscious Collection has some amazing pieces that I can buy right here in New York.
Now that Fashion Month is over, phew, what a marathon, I can focus on Spring style! Do you remember last fall when I told you how to Update Your Chunky Fall Sweater Look? Well I’m here to update this look for Spring. Change out your chunky sweater for a boxy tee and your booties for a simple one strap sandal. The flared skirt has staying power, so if you didn’t buy one last fall, you can still invest in one without fear of it going out of style. All of these pieces act as basic building blocks for the rest of your Spring wardrobe.

The only thing better than white, is outlining it in black. Proof? These white items which would be simply boring basics if it weren’t for their black piping.

I mentioned yesterday that my birthday is coming up (agh!) and the weeks leading up to it were filled with mixed emotions of denial and excitement (excited about planning the party). All the while building a birthday wish list that turned out to be fit for any fashion blogger, and doubles as a must have list for New York Fashion week.
1: An iPad for working on the go and this amazing Narciso Rodriguez Envelope Clutch from Barney’s to house it in (is it wrong that the clutch is more expensive than the iPad?) / 2: An abstract black and white iPhone case designed by Raja Ashraf / 3: Sure to catch street style attention, sunnies by Oliver Peoples, Annaliesse frames in matte ivory with spice brown gradient / 4: My favorite metal of the moment to adorn my nails, Penny Talk from Essie / 5: Keeping my stylish schedule straight with the Marjolein Delhaas Basic Diary weekly planner / 6: Any and all Respossi jewelry is always welcome / 7: When burning the midnight oil, I wouldn’t mind the company of a burning Jason Wu Orchid Rain Candle / 8: Tickets to the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference next week / 9: A much needed post-fashion week massage
