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:

ShoeMint – Say Hello To Janice

Right before the Holidays, ShoeMint decided to add a new pair of must-have shoes to their debut collection, as if our wish list wasn’t big enough already. It’s time to meet up with Janice, this lovely and versatile pair of ankle boots (ankle boots, yes !!!). You can choose to buy them in taupe suede or black suede, or add both pairs to your collection, if you’re lucky enough. The “Janice” are almost sold out, no wonder there, so you’d better hurry if you want to grab yours before they’re gone.

One little thing I might add, I just love how I can see Rachel Bilson, in each and every pair of these shoes, how she managed to deliver something so close to her style, that style we all find so inspiring.

ShoeMint – 2012 Winter Debut Collection

If you’re planning to expand your shoe collection next year or better yet, you’re still searching for the perfect pair of shoes for the Holidays, you should definitely check out ShoeMint.

I posted the news about Rachel Bilson’s own shoe line created in collaboration with stylist Nicole Chavez and legendary Steve Madden a while back, as they were planning on releasing a full collection only next year. With 2012 just around the corner, the amazing trio decided to give us a hint of what’s coming with a winter debut collection focusing on three designs, that come with two different options each.

The first design is a pair of lace-up statement wedge booties named Jolly after a “special woman Nicole and Rachel met while visiting Uganda last year”. They come in Taupe Suede and Leopard Pony and look just like this :

ShoeMint---Jolly

The second design – Pauline – named after Nicole’s grandmother, is a pair of suede platform booties with a gold corset detail. They come in Wine Suede and Black Suede looking perfect in both colors :

ShoeMint---Pauline

And the final design called Edith, after Rachel’s grandmother this time, is a beautiful pair of statement heels. You can find them in Black Suede or Blush Suede (my favorite pair).

ShoeMint---Edith

We will definitely be seeing more of ShoeMint on the blog, I cannot wait for the entire collection to be released and for the girls to start wearing the shoes.

Sense Of Style – Rachel Bilson

The Sense Of Style category will be dedicated to all our favorite style and fashion icons that daily surprise and inspire us in more than one way.

I thought the best way to celebrate their style would be a recap of each icon’s ten best looks in the past months/years, cause no words could better describe their fashion aesthetics.

And to make things more interactive you will get the chance to vote for your favorite look :)

Poll closed. See you at the next one.

The first Style & Fashion Icon I chose to grace this new category is our sweet and adorable Rachel Bilson, I already know some special girls who will enjoy this post as much as I do .

Best words to describe Rachel’s style : casual chic, bohemian, vintage. And off we go :
