One of my favorite lines this Season is Nina Ricci. Satin, Roses, Sweaters and Lace; its pieces are retro feminine with rose embellished pencil skirts, sheaths, and long gloves. Here are my favorite runway looks & editorials from the line and some inspired pieces you can wear right now.

It seems like every year around this time I keep my eye open for great plaid and tweed pieces. It isn't an easy task- as plaid can be so masculine or cheaply made, but I keep an eye open for fitted plaid pieces and feminine ways to wear them. Here are my favorite so far..
Rebecca Hall wearing Jason Wu-Instyle October 2010 Field Day
These 2 embroidered blouses by Oscar de la Renta and Valentino have been in nearly every other magazine this season. Although beautiful they are very pricey- so here are 3 deals of the week for embriodered and lace blouses. I chose 3 since anything with lace is all a matter of taste.
Isabel Marant was named the designer every woman can wear by Elle UK and its no surprise.
This line is appealing to me is because it takes basic pieces and with a little styling turns them to sophisticated looks. Aside from sequin pants, you can create this look by freshening up items you already have in your closet and then if needed, do some side shopping to supplement missing items. Here are my favorite looks from this line + how you can create the look yourself.

Cropped Pants. Super flattering cigarette and slim leg cropped pants and jeans. Grab a pair of your favorite slim leg pants and roll the cuff until 2-4 inches below mid calf. This length is the most flattering and lengthening. If you don't have any slim leg/cigarette pants here are a few- 3 of which are under $50.

You can wear this look all year round as it is seasonless.
Here are some photos of Isabel Marant's spring line:
To get this look you don't have to buy new clothes- Shop your closet instead. Put on your slim pants, roll the cuffs and pull out your mirror. Use these Runway and fashion editorial photos as inspiration and start trying on different layering options: olives, taupes and other neutrals, shimmery pieces, sequin, cropped tops, long and short layers, over sized jackets, even cable knits, etc. Tuck tops into the pants, and try on a belt and pair sequin pants with longer layers. Add Some Liquid Eyeliner, and chandelier earrings. Then pile on some bracelets.
