Barneys Picks

I always love when my Barneys catalog comes in the mail, it has such attitude. The photography and styling are awesome and it inspires me to start compiling a "if i had this, then i would buy this" list. Here are the top three shoe picks on my list for spring..the metallic wedge, the buckled, open-toe wedge, and the cork want.

From Day... Night

This gray, harem-style onesie from Cop.Copine is a total favorite of mine, and goes so easily from downtown daytime outing to Saturday night birthday bash.

For day, I belted it with my coin-studded Furla belt, put on my stripped Marc Jacobs cardigan, a couple of bangles, a primary color vintage scarf and my Stuart Weitzman t-strap sandals and I was ready to go.

For evening, I layered it with my Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent metallic, drapey top, accessorized with my World Market earrings and cuff, Nine West jeweled bracelet and my own ring. And then finished it off with my MaxStudio heels and Barney's Co-op clutch.

Trench Try-On

I picked up these four different style trenches, all pretty classic in color, and tried them on for a little show-and-tell. The 3.1 Phillip Lim trench was a less structured, more feminine interpretation that made me feel pretty while the Calvin Klein version had clean lines and felt very crisp and fresh. I loved the fuller shape and shorter hemline of the H&M version that was a nice variation on the classic, straight lines. And of course the classic Burberry made me feel extra sophisticated and like I was wearing a coat that knew exactly who it was supposed to be.

3.1 Phillip Lim $695

Calvin Klein $128

H&M $59.95

Burberry $795

The Trench

Carine Roitfeld has a zebra one, John Galliano closed his Spring 2010 Dior show sporting one, Scott Schuman photographed 100 stylish people wearing them and for years Burberry has been telling us to own one, the trench.

For Spring, Burberry and Dior showed modern, feminine interpretations on the classic trench, with ruched sleeves, leggy hemlines, and softer colors.
