Runway Finds (Spring 2011)

These statement strap-toe wooden platforms (seen in earlier Prada and Celine shows), are quintessentially chic. Wear them in the cold with dress-socks, opaque stockings or tights. Go bare-leg in warm weather. Interchange them with all kinds of skirts, jeans, shorts, trousers and dresses.

It’s all about accessory overload. Pearl-n-Chain necklaces add much-needed dimension when you pile them on. Choose a subtle blouse when re-creating your own version. Easy enough to wear, they go with almost anything. Bib-chain necklaces are much bolder and lend a fanciful visual display, so try them with evening attire or demure day-wear.


This mohair short-sleeve blouse has a charming decorative neckline. Soft in texture, mix-n-match with anything from trousers, jeans, shorts, skirts and everything in between.

Italian folklore will tell you this horn choker necklace wards off an evil eye, but we just like the way it looks. The plunging long-sleeve lace button down is outright flirty and oh-so-sexy. Paired with black shorts for a playful demeanor and devilishly subtle strappy nude sandals.


From work to an after-hours party, this number has absolute staying power. Comprised of a sleeveless semi-sheer satin blouse with skinny trouser pants and t-strap heels, the details are as equally stunning together as they are when worn separately.
