Classic looks for early Spring 2012

Classic looks for early spring are feminine and light-hearted. A bit retro (French 1960s), practical (no vertiginous heels please) and classic, these pieces will take you from early spring, with its chill in the air, to late spring and afte the summer, even into fall and early winter. I chose these pieces because they’re timeless and flattering.

The mid-heel buckled pumps are from Prada. They look much like the suede Celine pumps I bought in the late 1990s back when Michael Kors designed their collections. The ballet flats are made by Attilio Giusti Leombruni. I have worn these flats for three years. They are the most comfortable, stylish flats I’ve ever owned. You can buy them in the US at Nordstroms. The Prada shoes are seasonal so if you like this style, get it now as they probably won’t make them again.

Bags: The aqua blue is Dior, which is pricey but maybe worth a splurge. The lip-shaped bag is Lulu Guinness, who makes the most feminine, playful bags in the world. The pink bag is Dolce e Gabbana and the purple one is Loewe, the luxury Spanish brand, whose bag designs have been improving year after year.
