Work Book: BLUE

Feeling blue? Don’t be! Springs deepest color offers a shade to suit anyone. Light feminine silhouettes and strong classical shapes walked down the runway into the streets. Designers like Salvatore Ferragamo and Yves Saint Laurent both sported dark blue ensembles. On the other hand... designers like Vince Camuto and Peter Som flashed a more subtle, sophisticated fit.

First, this Torn by Ronny Kobo dress is a beautiful mix between light and dark. Recently seen on Melissa Gorga, proof that the tight icon dress is NOT out of style, in fact, here to stay. Perfectly accessorized with a jacket.. while not a pleated princess lined one? 

BABE IN BLUE, That’s right....This GORGEOUS pleated jacket features a crew neck and a 4 hook-and-eye closure. Princess seams at front and light pads at the shoulders that give a classical feel. Long sleeves and lined, perfect for all events. I absolutely adore this entire look! From the necklace to the shoes... jeans and top- This outfit is a keeper in my mind. 
We cannot forget the jewelry for any outfit! look at all these rings, first Marc Jacobs styled a perfectly simple square ring that prices at $78.00. Next, DARA ETTINGER! 
What I Love? This Dara Ettinger Stacked Ring. Set of 3 24k gold-plated stacking rings. Bead detailing at each band. Bezel-set agate stone at one ring. Simple and elegant. Buy the stacked set or why not two? The next oversized cocktail ring features a hammered setting at the amethyst stone... Guess what... Also Dara Ettinger. Thats right. Told you to buy two! I wan’t joking... Style your fingers with these rings and show all your friends your creative side! Mixing rigid and smooth stones? Only a new spring trend of course! Try it now!
OF COURSE every serious wardrobe needs a goofy cute keychain! Well, found a perfect one for you! I've always loved whales... something about them is so graceful and strong... Their size and sway just absolutely amazes me... so when I saw this Jonathan Adler whale keychain, I just melted inside and ordered myself one. The perfect gift for someone just to show you care. Go out and buy one for yourself too! 
Now moving on to the shoes... 
Hyperventilating. Don’t blame me if I wear these every day of my life. Alexander Wang did it again. These high heel sandals are my absolute obsession. They compliment simple outfits but why not accessorize a print with these shoes too? For all occasions I vote Alexander Wang- Simply because he is a man of many talents who never seizes to amaze me. These shoes with it’s mixed textures... is the whole package. Pricing at $525.00.Want a more simple style? What about Guiseppe Zanotti's Platform suede pumps that caught my eye while scrolling through shop bops shoes.
The height, the look, the cobalt.. ALL JUST SO PERFECT. We all want those legs that Adriana lima strolls around in.. but not many of us are blessed that way....So why not buy a perfect pair of shoes to attempt? Starting at $795.00... I can understand why thats not always such an easy buy. CURSE HIGH PRICES! SO UNFAIR. The 5.75’’ shoe compliments any outfit you can create! 
 Lastly, I've found the greatest flats of all time! Tory Burch, you've done it once again. Listing at $225.00, these cobalt blue sandals perfectly compliment any given spring outfit. If you don't believe me... TRY IT YOURSELF! Always a fan of Tory Burch.
Lets make our way back to the top... Blue tops and tees? NO PROBLEM! I've got you covered. Whether wanting to sport the stripe or polka dot trend, I've found the perfect of both. 
The over-sized l/s striped Rag and Bone tee is perfect for a casual outting with friends. OR lets spruce things up and get a polka dotted sweater to wear on a evening out? A.L.C school girl sweater prices at $400.00 but makes one helluvahhh present.
Rag and bone... Also known for their wonderful jean collection competes dramatically with Current/ Elliot jeans... and well... Here are a pair that I fell in love with right away. These feature 5-pocket styling and a single button closure. Worn edges and a grungy look! Repeat after me... COLOR IS GOOD! Spice up you spring wardrobe with minty blue jeans! yummy.
Bold statement? Try blue shades! Everyone’s wearing brown or black.. occasionally red framed glasses... why not try the new blue trend on your face? Not just with eye shadow but with sunglasses! Prism designed a perfect round metal frame for a price of $421.00. Who will be daring enough to try this? I sure will! Sign me up.
Last but not least, one of my ultimate favorite accessories... BAGS! Lets start with the smaller of the two... Rebecca Minkoff's Mini Mac Bag in navy is the perfect size for everyday (and night) usage! This soft leather handbag has a spring lock flap at the zip front pocket and gold hardware. Extra long zipper pulls and a detachable chain strap. Lined interior features zip pocket and three patch pockets as well.
Second of the two, Foley & Corinna. 3 words...JET SET BAG. No big deal, only $550.00... just pull that out of my back pocket... UM?! I wish! This gorgeous croc- embossed leather handbag features a zip pocket at the front and buckled strap details at the front/back. Snaps gather at the sides for a more classical look. Metal feet and double rolled handles make it sturdy and comfortable.
