Fall Trend: Crocodile Handbags

If there’s one ‘it’ bag you need for this fall season, it’s a crocodile handbag.  I know it can set a fashionista back several thousand dollars but there are many faux croc options available that are just as beautiful.  When I think of a crocodile handbag, it instantly brings thoughts of luxury and sophistication like the iconic Hermes Birkin bag.  I personally love a classsic top handle satchel bag, but designers have created some amazing crocodile handbags in all kinds of styles.  You will no longer be limited to brown and black with this closet staple.  Tory Burch has a beautiful cobalt blue tote as well as a juicy red choice by YSL.  If you really want to be funky, try a two-tone bag like the Dolce Gabbana pictured below.  Either way, you can’t go wrong with purchasing this timeless classic which will continue to be relevant for many seasons to come.

How to Style A Bustier Crop Top

The arrival of a new season means new trends and one of the hottest trends this spring are crop tops.  Most crop tops have a boxy silhouette which isn’t always flattering which is why I love the bustier crop top.  It’s sexy and feminine but can be intimidating for many women to wear.  If styled the wrong way, one could be confused for a streetwalker so here is some advice on how to style this trend.  I chose this black and white lace bustier crop top by Topshop.  The color was easy to style and the lace made it a little more interesting.  Sporty chic is going to be big this spring as well and adding a ladylike touch to a men’s fashion inspired look is always cool.  A silky bomber jacket, leather jogger pants, and wedge sneakers will help create a feminine yet sporty feel.  You can add this bustier underneath a sophisticated white suit to add a little sexy for a nice dinner date.  Lastly, you can take your crop top to all the many festivals that come with warm weather.  Just add some high-waisted shorts, booties, and a moto jacket and you’re good to go!

The ‘It’ Shoe for Spring: Slip-on Sneakers

Introducing the shoe of the season……slip-on sneakers!  This retro comfort shoe is making a comeback in a fierce way.  This once kind of dorky shoe has received a fabulous update from designers like Saint Laurent, Sam Edelman and Vans.  I love all of the varying textures and prints there are to choose from.  I’ve already snagged the floral print slip-ons from the Peter Pilotto for Target collection and can’t wait to sport them this spring.  You can pair these with flirty dresses, cute capris, or casual cut-offs.  Which ever style you pick, these babies will leave your feet feeling fancy through the spring and summer seasons.
