New In

As you know, there's nothing that I love more than a good bargain! This is definitely the bargain time of year as stores transition into spring. I'm scouring every T.J. Maxx and Marshalls in my area, to take advantage of their red and yellow-tag clearance items.

New York + Company has also gotten a lot of my business lately. They've become my go-to store for jeans.

Marc by Marc Jacobs "Toggles + Turnlocks" Link Necklace; available on for $59.99; also Ebay.

I found this necklace on clearance at T.J. Maxx this past weekend. It's such a nice piece, and is unlike anything that I currently own. The rose gold was a big selling point for me, it's such a "fresh" look. 
Yellow Box "Echo" Embroidered and studded Ankle boots; available on for $49.

I found these at Marshalls a couple a days ago on clearance. I'm usually not a fan of suede, but I love the vibrant color and detail---they're also a need.  
Soho Jeans - High Cuff Boyfriend - Rip and Repair, $69.95 (buy one get one for $10)

I featured these in a post a couple of weeks ago, but purchased them this week. Not only was I sold on the cuffs, but the rips with the darker denim peeking through is a nice touch. They're nice and soft, with that well-worn feel. 

Soho Jeans - Patchwork Flare - Released Hem, $69.95

This is one amazing pair of jeans! Not everyone cares for flares, but they do me proud! Out of all that I've recently purchased, these are my absolute favorites----the patches and released hem is "it." Most flared styles do run long, so a heel is usually required.

Lounge - Striped Cowl-neck Tunic, $22.47 (50% off)

I picked this up in-store earlier this week. While it's description say "lounge," that's not my intended purpose. I'm  not into the athleisure trend, nor would I wear this around the house. I find it a good transitional piece to pair with jeans and flats on a casual day. 

Lounge - Cold-shoulder Pullover, $27.47 (50% off) (

Like the top above, I'll wear this in a casual fashion with flats and jeans. The reviews aren't so good, as some don't like the fact that it fits "full" and loose, stating that it's too big. I don't have an issue with that, as it's perfectly suited for skinny jeans.

Street Style: Paris Couture Spring 2016

And so it begins, as the "perennials" take to the streets clad in the latest designer wear. As you'll see here, the photographers couldn't get enough of Anna Dello Russo (no surprise there!), Olivia Palermo, and Miroslava Duma.

Anna Dello Russo is wearing a Schiaparelli coat, Dior Boots and Fendi bag.

This coat is absolutely breath taking! It's just what I would expect to see on this street style veteran. 

Miu Miu coat, blouse, skirt and shoes.

This is another standout look. It just works.
