Spring 2012 Wishlist

Today it finally felt like Spring ! I cannot tell how excited it makes me feel, watching a sunny sky, feeling a warmer breeze, dropping a layer of clothes … it’s just wonderful. Mostly I’m excited for the part, where this Spring, I’ll pump up the volume in my wardrobe. I feel like trying new things.

I could say it’s almost a new beginning, as I’m switching from all the blacks and the greys and …let’s say neutrals, to COLORS …finally, I cannot way to put on colors and more colors …

For that, I’m thinking a pastel (or bright colored) pair of skinny jeans, pumps or stilettos covered in citron or bright orange, and cute color-block clutches and bags.

I might be slightly late on some trends, but hey … I guess everything happens right when it’s supposed to. Besides colors, this Spring I’m developing a mild crush on Peter Pan collars, as they look so sweet and girlie, that’s the nerdy me talking, and also on jewelry with tribal accents and motifs … I guess that’s the boho part of me reaching out.

To all this, add gold large cuffs, statement necklaces and maybe a slightly more casual Little Black Playsuit … and the result, is my also written in paper, Spring 2012 Wishlist. To get an idea of what I’m imagining, I put up a mix of cute and affordable items, that strongly resemble the picture inside my head :

Brands : Topshop – Leather Rhinestone Collar; Tall MOTO – Jamie Jeans; ShoeMint – Veronique pumps in citron; Topshop – Patterned Arm cuff; ALDO – Virga Clutch Bag; Topshop – Full Skirted Playsuit with Cut Out; Topshop – Mask Stud Earrings.

For more inspiration I turned to Pinterest and here’s what I found:

Nina Dobrev – Nylon & got2b Party

This week, cover girl Nina Dobrev, joined the Nylon & got2b Party Celebrating the February Issue, in New York City, looking all sparkly and sweet, in a Jenny Packham mini dress.

Nina-Dobrev---Jenny-Packham

The nude sequined mini number, with a V neckline and three-quarter sleeves, was paired with the gorgeous black suede ALDO Echard Platform booties.

Our favorite raising star, sported a simple high ponytail, neutral smoky eyes and a bright coral lip color.

This is what I call a comfortable, but sexy look, perfect for us young girls, celebrating at any sort of party, in style.

Party Like A Rockstar

“There’s a place I know, If you’re looking for a show, where they go hardcore and there’s glitter on the floor” … sounds familiar ? Of course it does, for mainly two reasons : 1. it’s Kesha – Take It Off (great party anthem) and 2. it could be the place everyone’s talking about these days, or haven’t you been already asked ” Where are you going to celebrate the New Year’s Eve ? “. Sure you have, it’s the top question of the month.

So, all throughout the year I’m IN for the comfort, the flats before the heels kind of comfort, always (almost), and that of course has got to change. It’s just got to. And I’m going to end 2011 and start 2012 with a fresh approach, like a lady and instead of wearing super duper comfy shoes, I’m gonna go for heels, black ones. That’s just because I don’t own anything glittery, I would have loved to add some sparkles to the fresh start. Maybe next year.

But that didn’t stopped me from virtually “shopping” or better yet “researching” for the perfect matching heels. What I found were 16 beautiful pairs of shoes, perfect for New Year’s Eve celebration, or any other celebration that is, so I thought I’d share my findings with you, for a little bit of inspiration.
