Spring Forward: Cute Trench Coats

So I’m headed to New York next week. Yes, I know. Hopefully all will go well and I’ll stay healthy. But, anyway, I was thinking about the weather and well, it’s a great time to wear a cute trench coat for that in between can’t decide what season it is weather. With all that is going on in the world right now, retail therapy may be just what you need. I found a few coats that I just had to share.

  1. Sam Edelman Green Double-Breasted Trench Coat $180

          2. Simone Rocha Frilled Trench Coat $2815


3. Alice and Olivia Monique Pleated-Back Trench Coat $660

Black and White on the Runway for Spring 2014

Black and white is definitely still the perfect color combo for Spring 2014. Cushnie et ochs seems to have made black and white its signature color combo and others like Louis Vuitton have simply done full shows in black or white recently. Balmain sent a beautiful black and white houndstooth coat down the runway (shown above) while Alice and Olivia put together a gorgeous black and white jacket and blouse (shown below).

The moral of the story is keep collecting your black and whites. They are classics and won’t be going anywhere. Check out my Black and White Collection on Lyst here and shop black and white basics from Alexander Wang here.

Absolut Open Canvas Art Event in Brooklyn


Talk about street art. This past weekend I stopped by the Absolut Vodka Open Canvas Event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where artists Olek, Katsu and others transformed a whole street into an art display. Ice sculptures, knitted bikes, and graffiti filled the street and it was kind of amazing.

It was also really hot outside! Summer finally hit New York and I stayed cool in a white bustier, a white lace skirt and jewelry from various places including I-Ella’s List and Lea Jefferson. Absolut Vodka stirred up some great cocktails and I was able to meet Olek and her friend, the first person I’ve ever spotted wearing the new Google glasses! Check out more photos from the event below.
