7x7xBarneys

Last night my friend Micki Turner invited me to a hip party at Barney's hosted by 7x7. We sipped cocktails, watched guests channel Rachel Zoe in a styling competition and chatted about our favorite spring trends. Micki and I agree, we couldn't be more excited about color.

spring ahead: rainbow bright


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned pastels are a hot trend for Spring. Well, it turns out super bright and bold also happen to be on the forecast, in a huge way. I was at Bloomingdale's yesterday and the colors popped out at me everywhere I turned. Chartreuse, turquoise, magenta, poppy, neon, neon, neon. I think I saw bold hues from every single designer they carry. I'm guessing the head-to-toe color block look isn't for everyone, but I challenge those who prefer the black/neutrals safe zone to branch out this Spring and play with color. Accessories can go a long way. Try a vibrant scarf, colorful earrings or bright ballet flats. 
Even Vince, who is often known for muted tones, is going bright this season. I especially love the mustard shorts. 
A trend so strong even Bloomingdale's will modify their little brown bags.  
Dolce Vita suede turquoise booties. They also come in bright red.

spring ahead: asymmetry

Asymmetry

Asymmetry by missioncloset featuring an asymmetrical dress

Designers like Charlotte Ronson and Vera Wang played with asymmetry for Spring. Think angled shirt hems, one shoulder tops, and imbalanced skirts. I love the look of a flowy, below-the-knee skirt with a slightly longer backside. Or the blue dress above with the long shawl-like half would be stunning for a wedding or cocktail party. I also loved this 10 Crosby dress but couldn't pin it to Polyvore for some reason.

general store


Nick and I joke that we need to LTM (Leave the Mission) more often, so we jumped at the chance to go to brunch at Outerlands in the Sunset last week with a couple friends. The food was delicious (especially the chocolate chip cookies) and afterward we wandered down to General Store . It was my first time visiting this cool shop and I loved their selection of housewares, clothes, jewelry, and stationary. I'll definitely LTM more often if it means discovering gems like General Store.

I love those woven baskets. My friend Molly has a large one with a lid for a pretty clothes hamper.
