Alejandro Ingelmo Nude Gladiator Sandals – The gladiator trend just won’t go away. I guess that is a good thing for those of you who love the trend. Some of the styles are not my cup of tea like the gladiator boot that goes all the way up the leg to the knee. I just don’t get it. However, sandals like these nude gladiator sandals with a heel and a lace up style are very feminine and can do quite nicely for a spring wedding or a summer stroll in Paris. So take heart for those of you who still own your Gentle Souls Gladiator sandals from last year, pull them out and wear them again. They are back or never went away.

Olivia Palermo wears Lanvin Sneakers High Tops - This is great – this past weekend Olivia Palermo was seen walking around New York City wearing a pair of Lanvin high top sneakers, a fur lined navy coat, red jeans, and retro tortoise sunnies. I love the fact that she is STILL wearing these Lanvin high top sneakers. These are from last year and she is still wearing them. Olivia Palermo has also been seeing using bags from past seasons and mixing with newer season styles which is great for fans. It is not great for people who want the newest styles all of the time, but it is great for those people who love her style and want to follow her style, but don’t want to buy something new all of the time. Great that she mixes everything in a high low way too for fashion.
Pierre Hardy Black Messenger Bag MUST HAVE - For all of you New York City dwellers who do not want the Hermes messenger bag with the big H on the front and want something a little more sporty and less dainty, look at this French designer. Pierre Hardy has something Hermes does not – Pierre Hardy is offering a minimalist look with a signature style. His magnetic slide in closure with his soft rectangular shape in a grained nappa black leather with the sporty adjustable black shoulder strap is so chic that you will find yourself wearing this bag while pretending to be a bike messenger cruising to your office job AND taking it out at night over your black capri pants, minimalist platform sandals, and a black jacket. It is so New York City chic, you will want to wear it all of the time and it will fit your lap top to boot. I am not a fan of the colorblocked Pierre Hardy bags but this one is definitely a must have that you will use again and again.
RtA Leather Cobain Black Pants - Channel your inner grunge and bring back the late 90′s by wearing a pair of sexy skinny black leather pants with a great worn in looking rock and roll t shirt with a pair of open toe barely there sandals and you are a groupie bandaid in the making. Think Rihanna and Kate Hudson as your model. Definitely a reason why they named these leather pants the cobain leather pants. Kurt Cobain would approve. Looks like you are wearing these skinnies with a shirt wrapped around your waist but it is actually a piece you can zip off. RtA Leather Cobain pants for $1232.
Saint Laurent MINI Sac Du Jour Bag – So I love this MINI Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour bag for so many reasons I have to just list them for you.
1. It is a minimalist version of a classic Hermes birkin bag, but cooler and edgier.
2. The regular size version is carried by Angelina Jolie.
3. It has 3 compartments so you can keep everything organized.
4. The design is very minimalist so it can go with everything in your wardrobe.
5. It has a crossbody strap so you can carry it hands free and use it all of the time in every single situation.
This is my favorite bag of the season for Spring 2014. I love it. It is my favorite body style of bag that is now made in a smaller size so you can carry it everywhere when traveling and not worry about overloading yourself on a trip and you can keep hands free.
Sophia Webster Clementine Leather & Suede Lace-Up Sandal Boots are very fashion forward. These types of sandal boots that lace up all the way to the knees are very popular among fashion bloggers, celebrities, and pop stars at the moment. I think Kourtney Kardashian rocked a pair a few months ago and since then Rihanna has also rocked a pair or 2. I am not the biggest fan of this look, however if you are going out to a club with your short shorts and mid drift top, I suppose these sandals are definitely what you should be wearing with the outfit.
The newest collection of the Chloe Marcie classic bag is now the perforated version just in time for Spring 2014. What is lovely about a perforated bag like this is the fact that it will go with all of your white eyelet dresses for spring and summer. This bag has a light spring and summer feel. Remember those great perforated chairs that you sat in while visiting a beach house in the Hamptons in the summer? This bag will go great with a Jackie O pair of oversized sunnies, a white perforated dress, and wedge sandals.
Givenchy Swiss Metallic Sandals for Summer 2014 look like something that Kanye West or Kim Kardashian will be sporting this spring into summer. They are metallic colored Birkenstocks basically, but for those of you who could not get your hands on a pair of Birkenstocks from the black leather on black leather collection that was only sold in Germany, get these instead in the metallic or the black and squelch that hankering and wear them proud this summer.
