Bill Cunningham New York:: a documentary film about Bill Cunningham – the famous fashion photographer in New York. He is known for riding his bike through New York City, capturing fashion trends for his column in the New York Times, “On the Street”. It’s an inspiring movie on how he documented fashion during his career. As Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, puts it: “We all get dressed for Bill”.
A must-see film!
Nordstrom recently shared Spring 2011 best trends and I loved them all so much I wanted to share with you all! What trends have you started to incorporate into your Spring wardrobe?! Here’s a snapshot of some fabulous Spring trends:
Pale neutrals: From camel to white and add a pop of color with a bright bag or scarf.

Fit and flare dresses: Flirty and feminine with a vintage touch.
“Kitten” heels: A “retro-inspired” heel that is easy to wear all day! And perfect if you’re like me and don’t like to wear 3+ inch heels!
Romantic blouses: Very ladylike and I love pairing a romantic blouse with a pair of jeans.
Satchels: A well-defined structure bag that is perfect for work! My favorite is the Brahmin bag that I recently purchased from Nordstrom – it’s great for work and a night out in the city. And my second favorite is the amazing Kate Spade “Fisher” satchel:
Flared and wide-leg pants: Hello 70’s! It is going to be hard to switch from my skinny jeans but there are definitely some cute flared pants out right now (I am especially loving the flared white jeans!)
Maxi dresses: Long dresses are so hot right now! Perfect for during the day or a night out on the town. One of my favorites is the Hinge Silk Maxi dress – beautiful!
Statement rings: I always think of one of my best friends – Kimmy – when I think statement rings! She always has the most gorgeous rings and knows how to rock this style! I love the stones and metals in some of the rings out now.
Minimal jackets: Perfect to pair with a t-shirt or tailored shirt!
Modern oxfords: Love these! And I recently bought a pair that I wear almost everyday (to work and out!) I bought these by Boutique9 – love! A classic look that looks great with skinny jeans, a silk tshirt and blazer.
Peace, love and Spring!
The two biggest times of the year for fashion are Spring and Fall. As we are now in a new year, Spring is going to approach quicker than we think!! If I had to choose my favorite fashion season it would be Fall (although, I get to experience Fall fashion almost year-round living here in San Francisco!) I do love a lot of the dresses and the shoes in Spring, but I’m a true fan of the Fall coats, boots and scarfs. I wanted to share with you a glimpse into Spring 2011 fashion courtesy of InStyle Magazine:
– The Jean: Trousers – A Sophisticated look for denim. I am the biggest fan of skinny jeans, however, I do own a pair of ‘trouser jeans’ from Banana Republic. I think this is a great look for work and/or more dressy for a weekend dinner when it’s still too chilly to wear a dress.
– The Shoe: Wedges – A more ‘chunky’ style; I love the wedges that tie around the ankles (I own a great pair that I got at Zara in Florence, Italy about 5 years ago!!) If it has a good heel height and tie around the ankle, then you can have more of a ‘classy’ wedge look.
– The Detail: Fringe – Bring on the Western look with tasseled jackets, vests, pants and more! I don’t know how I feel about this ‘trend’ – I think the closest I may get to ‘fringe’ this Spring may be with a bag!
– The Print: Exotic Floral – On a nice skirt with a simple top, this could make for a chic Spring look. I’m not a big fan of ‘floral prints’ but let’s see what’s in store for us this season.
On a side note around accessories, one accessory that I’m liking more and more these days are – glasses! I have been wearing my Kate Spade glasses and think it’s a great accessory to pair with jeans and a classic t-shirt.
