My Latest Spring Purchases… And No, I Don’t Regret A Thing

SAM EDELMAN LOAFERS

I tried on these Sam Edelman loafers in the frenzy/ hellish zoo that was Lord and Taylor’s…. on a Saturday in March… during a sale of course I was unaware of. Unfortunately, they didn’t have my size so I ordered them but these are THE MOST comfortable/stylish loafers I’ve put on my little tootsies in quite some time. It makes any work outfit or weekend brunch with friends outfit a bit dressier. I feel a bit like a Newport, RI resident in these shoes… and I don’t hate it.

DEBORAH LIPPMANN SPRING NAIL POLISH

At Salon AKS last week, my long-time hair salon in the city, I came across a brand of nail polish I’ve definitely come across before and have in the past admired. Deborah Lippmann is hands down a new nail polish line to look out for. HOT and trendy shades, definitely recommend a lighter yellow, purple, pink shade.



NINE WEST PUMPS

So I’ve been eyeing nude pumps for MONTHS now… after narrowing it down to a few select pairs, I wound up with Nine West’s rustic nude pump for the spring. They are deceptively hot — you look at them and they look as though they’ve been your favorite pair of heels for years which in this case? Is oddly hot and not shabby. I didn’t want the bright shiny patent leather ones — I felt a bit too bowling alley-ish in those, so I think these were a much better fit.


MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS GOLD WEDGES

Ok. I will confess. While I hate the act of physical shopping? I love purchasing and browsing all MICHAEL Michael Kors heels — whether it be his winter collection or his spring, he is just a genius in the shoe department. I remember a pair of lucite/wedges I bought of his a few years back.. I wore them SO much? My mom threw them out while I went out for a run. Damn you mom. Anyway, these are ridiculously comfortable (the cushy sole is the key) and so hot — a shoe that looks this good but that allows you to walk more than one city avenue? Is a keeper in my mind.


ESSIE — MINT CANDY COLOR

Reminiscent of Breakfast at Tiffany’s — this color is one of the hot spring trend nail polish colors. I can’t say it is very “versatile” by any means but if you’re headed away on a romantic warm weather vaca or even in the mood to pretend your cubicle is San Tropez? Buy this shade and be instantly happier — trust me.


GOLD SNAKE RING WITH ONYX CENTER

I don’t like animals for the most part and I most definitely don’t have a love for snakes but these snake inspired wrap rings just had me hooked. I got mine at ABC Home Furnishings — sounds odd but if you haven’t been you can’t judge. They have THE MOST INSANELY unique jewelry lines there. This ring is for example so unique — mine actually is adorned with an onyx stone where the snake’s head should be — so hot. Damn.


JUICY COUTURE LACE DRESS

Once trying on this dress, I literally knew I could NOT leave it behind. From the hot cream eyelet swatch to the amazing zip up bow in the back? I had to have it. I will say, however, the fact that Juicy STILL PRODUCED VELOUR AND TERRY CLOTH TRACK SUITS make me question me giving their company my money. I would like to personally burn each and every jumpsuit in the US that unfortunately is still a relatively popular purchase for Long Island moms.


NANETTE LAPORE WORK DRESS

I wasn’t able to find the color of this dress I purchased, which sucks, so I will do the best I can to rave about a dress/color you aren’t able to visualize. The Nanette Lapore 2011 spring dress, which I purchased in a beautiful stone grey, is called the “Work-A-Holic” dress and boy is it spot on with the customer who is purchasing it, that’s for damn sure.


FRENCH CONNECTION SKIRT

I feel so much like an Austin Power’s Femme Bot in this skirt but it’s extremely ideal for the trendy PR work setting I find myself in 5 days a week. I love it tucked in with a short black sleeve and black blazer. You can also definitely wear it with a hot colored blouse and pumps out on the weekend. Very versatile very hot.
