Spring Dream Wardrobe

By taking a closer look at some of my favorite Resort 2012 collections, I found myself inspired enough to add some key pieces to my dream wardrobe, and if I will be lucky enough, I will find pretty substitutes for all these designer pieces.

For me, this Spring is all about color – neons, pastels, bright hues, you name it – sheer materials, maxi dresses + skirts, leather (but of course), floral prints … and the rest will follow :

Jessica Alba – V-Day Cocktails and Conversation

Returning to her flirty ladylike style, the beautiful Jessica Alba, attended the V-Day Cocktails and Conversation with Eve Ensler event this week, donning a custom Carolina Herrera creation.

Her tomato red CH duchess satin cocktail dress, had a sleeveless fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt with pleated details, that resembles a party dress from the glamorous 1960s.

White Giuseppe Zanotti soft ruched satin peep-toe Court shoes and a Stark box hooker creek printed clutch, accessorized the lovely look, together with a GRAY Gallery Vintage bike chain bracelet.

Beauty wise, Jessica opted for straight hair, with a sweet side part ending in a soft wave, smokey eyes and pink glossy lips. Picture perfect, can’t you just adore her ?

2012 Must-Have – The Little Red Dress

It’s a brand new year, a fresh start, we already feel different and start planning for 2012, wishing to make some changes in our lives and maybe even our wardrobes (trends change and so do we). If you already started working on the “Essential Items for 2012 List” or the otherwise called “I Wish A Lot Of New Stuff This Year” I suggest you make some space on your list and in your closet, for one of the 2012′s must-haves : The Little Red Dress.

I’m not saying it will be replacing The Little Black Dress forever, but this year it could be an inspired choice for so many different events, saving us time and helping us look effortless chic.

Amongst the designers that introduced the little red dress for 2012 were : Elie Saab, Donna Karan, DKNY, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Naeem Khan and Carolina Herrera.

Those dresses are beautiful indeed but I don’t know, actually I do know, I’ll never have the chance to wear them outside my imagination that is. Luckily, we have other options to shine as bright as the stars do, but wearing ASOS, Romwe and Topshop as they are some of the most affordable and fashionable brands. My top 4 red ASOS picks are :

ASOS 04

Not bad at all, right ? Let’s embrace this trend and look beautiful all throughout 2012, it’s a special year, I’m telling you. XO

The elegant yet sweet sleeveless dress showcased Jessica’s incredible figure, after only three months since she gave birth to her second daughter, Haven.

The Swarovski Winter Garden necklace and the Barbara Bui snakeskin pumps completed this dreamy look.
