Recently the topic of spring trends arose and I remained a bit mum on the subject as I largely felt Spring 2017 offered a lot of “been there, done that” styles.  Furthermore, some of the top runways looks – neon, bra tops, etc. just aren’t wearable for most us on a day-to-day basis.  But today I decided to sit down and cherry pick a few top trends and identify ways to give a fresh spin to the styles that have been around a couple seasons.

Labels to Love: Alexis Bittar

While working at Keaton Row I became familiar with the jewelry of Alexis Bittar and used many of his pieces in my client look books.  This talented guy started designing at 22 and opened his first boutique in 2004 at age 36. In recent years he’s been described as “One Of The Greatest Jewelry Designers Of The 21st Century”.  He’s taken part in numerous collaborations with top designers and his work has been showcased on the cover of publications such as Time and Italian Vogue.  Pieces range from clean & classic to innovative, bordering avant garde.

Resort Wear 2017 – Evening Wear

Welcome to the last segment of our 2017 Resort Wear series!  The focus this week is on evening looks.  Whether you are planning a candlelit dinner on the beach or a night of bar-hopping, we’ve got your looks covered.

Romantic Waterfront Dinner Date

You’ll look stunning for your waterfront or beachfront dinner date in this silk one shoulder by BCBG.  The dress is paired with low-heeled, nude sandals – one of my favorite pieces to travel with as they go with virtually EVERYTHING you might want to wear in the evening.  Black, white, brights, pastels, skinny jeans; these sandals will work with them all. Dramatic drop earrings and a Caribbean-bright clutch complete this look.

For a night of bar hopping in town, I found an strapless maxi dress with an amazing knot detail in the back.  Throw on a pair of flat sandals and a denim jacket and you’re ready to go.  The white Everlane backpack can be used while sightseeing during the day and carried by it’s top strap at night.
