Like Jennifer I am doing a bit of spring shopping and will buy mostly from the resort collections. I am waiting for a Celine top and skirt and a Derek Lam top (that I already know will not be right). However, now that it is cold my recent purchases are in the spotlight. Even though I loved a lot of the fall offerings, I bought carefully and for the most part am thrilled with my purchases.
Hit: Louis Vuitton “Delightful” bag. I never ever thought I would carry a monogram bag, but this is the ultimate hobo and I have done very little bag rotation since I got it. It gets 5 stars!
Near Miss: Jeans have been my bugaboo. It is a bad sign when I buy something and then start tinkering with it and take it to the tailor more than once. A few pairs of jeans got shoved into the Goodwill box after I tried to recut them without success. Believe it or not, I bought a pair of jeggings and unless you bump into me on a school run or in Whole Foods, you will not see me in them. I was desperate to find a comfortable alternative to yoga pants for doing errands and jeggings fit the bill. Enviably, Elle above wears the perfect pants for running around.
Miss: Lanvin moccasin boots. Loved them and was willing to wear them despite the fact that they gave me elephant legs. Fortunately I came to my senses and returned them before I had worn them.
