Spring wardrobe updates

Canadian shoppers, BCBG is having amazing sales on their dresses right now!

 

I picked up this lovely runway piece (looks much better in person, gorgeous embroidery) for under $300. I had eyed it months ago, but it was completely out of my price range at over $700.

 

I also found the most gorgeous, fire engine red mod style trench coat with white contrast stiching at a vintage store. So funky and I plan to wear it in a more modern/chic way with nude stilettos and oversized sunglasses. (Although was tempted for about 5 seconds to buy white go go boots to match lol.) It reminds me of London, which I miss.

 

Still on the hunt for a good pair of tall riding boots through an end of season sale and debating getting a used Danier leather jacket for $35 off of craigslist. I love craigslist!

 

What have you ladies been buying for the warmer weather ahead?

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

Oh wow I had to look at the date for that collection a few times, I couldn't agree more...it is very somber. Although I do typically wear a lot of neutral tones, incorporating fun pops of color is a must for me come spring time. I'm very excited that neon colors are very big this year.

 

I've been stocking up on colorful jeans, I definitely need a break from denim. Colorful denim is an unexpected statement piece, although I've found that pairing them with just the right garments is quite a bit of a challenge. I've also been looking at edgier pieces to add to my wardrobe, which seem to be really big this year. Studded rings, loose fitted tanks, distressed shorts, and flowing sundresses all seem like they're going to be especially big this season.

 

San Francisco is what I like to call a 'layering' city. So spring is usually a great time for me to stock up on things that are 'off season' like boots, tights, sweaters, etc. Since the weather can be very unpredictable, I tend to pair tees with scarves, long sleeve cardigans, or wear dresses with knee high socks.

 

I'm not really a fan of flip flops or sandals, but I'll usually buy a pair or two for trips to the beach and for days that are insanely warm.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

I love bold colours and prints, but whenever I'm looking at a piece, I ask myself if I can see myself wearing it 1 year from now, 5 yrs, etc. and what I'll think of it then. If my hypothetical future self declares that it isn't up to snuff, then I pass it by. It's a strange way to evaluate fashion, I admit!

 

@janinebt I love layering - Toronto tends to have a very short spring before the temperature reaches sweltering. But we don't let that stop us Smiley Happy You'll see people in open toe shoes when it's -5C or colder.

 

@dianabt LOL I also have band tshirts that are way too large for me but I can't part with them. Too many good memories!

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

I'm so excited for Spring!

My birthday was late February, and my parents got me a pair of red jeans. I'm wearing them right now! LOVE.

I'm going clothes shopping this weekend and hopefully will be able to snag some new things for spring! Some things i want to update my wardrobe with are...

-Something the color Seafoam/Mint Green 

-A Bright pair of flats

-A new spring-weather jacket...not sure exactly what yet

As for stuff I already own, I'll be rotating in a lot more short sleeve shirts as well as my chartreuse peacoat I got 1.5 years ago!

I'm jealous! If I had to pick one pair of coloured denim, it would be a dark cherry red.

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

Seafoam/Mint Green sounds SUPER CUTE.. in a dress, shoes.. OH even a coat! Smiley Happy I've been on a pastel kick.. I bought two shirts, one in a pale peachy color (a knitted short sleeve loose sweater) and a tangerine and white floral printed shirt. Thinking of the Pantone collection apparently! Smiley Happy

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

@pocketvenus: That sounds so awesome too! And thanks!

@dianebt: Thanks! Pastels seem to be very in for Spring, whether you follow trends or not, so kudos to you! And that peach knit sweater sounds amazing!!!

 

 

Re: Spring wardrobe updates

Speaking of updating wardrobes for Spring.. Smiley Wink

 

I had one of my best friends go through some of my clothes with me. I must admit, I am a clothing junkie but still love to stick to just a few staple items. She used to work at a Buffalo Exchange (where you can sell your clothes for some cash) and has a very good idea on what I can sell and will be bought, as opposed to things that won't be bought that I can just donate. I found an entire bin in my closet full of things I will NEVER wear!  But I can't depart with my beloved band and concert tees no matter how outdated.. LOL.

 

I did buy some new shoes (in black, that's one staple I can't get rid of year round!) a bright yellow dress and like Janine, colored jeans! I ended up with bright red jeans and a pair of soft pink jeans, both skinny legged and look great with heels. I might as well liven up my wardrobe a bit since the weather is changing Smiley Happy

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana
