Key Lime Kate

$149

Nothing says spring more that a green and white polished dress. I scooped up this Kate Spade dress from TJ’s and sported it during our photo shoot! 

Paired with gold earrings, a white, beaded flower bracelet, and blood orange heels. This look is perfect to wear to a Sunday brunch, a graduation party, or even the Kentucky derby! Just need to find a nice, extremely large, hat.

Our favorite Blair Waldorf wore a similar spring’esque dress in a scene for Gossip Girl. 

Kate Spade designed this (almost identical to my magical dress) Verandah Place  purse!!

Kate Spade Original Gem: $445

What’s your favorite dress to wear for the spring? Have you picked up any Kate Spade pieces recently?? Let us know!

Yippee for Yellow

$79.99

As Brad Goreski calls it, a “POC”.

In case you  missed Brad’s new show It’s a Brad, Brad World on Bravo, the stylist frequently talks about how every outfit need a pop of color, hence his clever abbreviation, POC.

On several occasions I have paired this bright yellow winter jacket with jeans, dresses, leggings, etc.

This time I threw on a vintage grey fur neck wrap. How much do you love the grey/yellow combo!!??

TJ Maxx in NYC was the perfect place to wear this lemon yellow beauty one last time before I store her away for next winter.

Gaga wore a yellow Valentino Couture vintage jacket similar to mine on her Thanksgiving special!

It sure did get quite some use during the winter.

DVF is so kindly bringing back the yellow jacket this fall.

Color Me Fur

$29

This fashion week was all about fur, fur, fur! Either on a hat, a scarf, gloves, and yes, of course jackets! Besides the usual black and camel colored fur, I decided to take a walk on the wild side and purchase a blue fur coat from Ann Taylor LOFT.

Now, you may be thinking I resemble our good ole pal cookie monster, but trust that this coat was a HIT! 

I wore this outfit to the Rock & Republic for Kohls show. I think the coat went quite nice with my silver body con dress and matching tights, gold sequin wedges, and my neon yellow Cambridge Satchel bag! A bit wild, but it definitely turned heads…in a good way!

Gucci sent a nice turquoise fur coat down their runway!

Even Kim thinks it’s appropriate to wear a blue fur jacket in NYC. She wore hers while filming Kim & Kourtney Take New York.

This blue fur creation by the Row is amazing!! Might not be an everyday throw on jacket, but the ad makes it look so appealing!

The guys from Gossip Girl seemed to enjoy the blue fur. They are just as stunning as the coat!


Original Ann Taylor LOFT Gem: $118

Hidden Gem: $29

What do you think about this jacket? Would you dare wear it? Have any colored fur? Are you drooling of the GG hunks?
