these are a few of my favorite things: spring!

every time a new season starts i make an entry where i post a few of the things i'm looking forward to owning or ogling at for that season and what items i would love to see on others or myself. so, here are a few of my favorite items for this spring.
♥ me


i am loving all things floaty, slouchy and bohemian. and i guess i'm loving light pastel colors too because a majority of the things in the collage are light. i really want to own some type of folsky, bohemian, floaty dress. i want to find just the perfect one, but most likely that perfect dress will be $200+ dollars when i can barely afford $20+. anyway, let's start off my going throw some of these items and why i love them so much!

ok, i LOVE leather jackets. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. and yet i don't own one. that's because everytime i see one i think i'll be able to find it somewhere else for cheaper, and i never really can. i really ened to stop being a cheapskate. anyway...i usually gravitate towards brown or black leather jackets, but this white faux leather bomber jacket from charlotte russe really caught my eye because i love the simple design on it (it has fab layering potential) and the unexpected color: snow white! this will be so refreshing to see in spring and even summer. and yes, don't be afraid to keep wearing it into fall.

i also absolutely adore those fab lilac sergio rossi suede platform sandals. they are so feminine and sexy, and i love that light, dreamy shade of purple. they would look so fab with floaty bohemian dresses or sexy bandage dresses. they would look great with anything really....particularly my feet. come on sergio rossi people! throw me a bone!

the marni leather slouchy shoulder bag has me drooling. i love the supple leather, the ingenious ruching and the soft faded rose pink color. *drools some more* it's so roomy, and so cute, and so...perfect! i really want it. it's just the perfeect bag for spring!

the DVF flutter sleeve dress and amazing white chiffon top are so breezy and beautiful. you'd look like a dazzling wood or water nymph draped in these ultra feminune and laid back luxe designs for the amazing diane von furstenberg.

equally dazzling is the kara by kara ross python petal ring which features an amazing gem in the center of a gold flower petal overlaid with pink python. pretty punk. it would look great with that cute black bandage pencil skirt from pink ice, or the beautiful black fringed and embellished dress from the same site. really, the ring would look great with anything because it has such a classic yet interesting design.

spring is the season of freshness and renewal. i don't know about you, but when i think of the word fresh many scents come to mind, such as the scent of rain, pine, mint...and baby powder. go back to your diaper days with the baby powder scent from demeter. and get a good spring glow on your cheeks with the every popular mark good glowing blush in love rush.

hope you enjoyed dears. :)

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.
