I found this striking Prada knit strapless sheath at Jeffrey in NYC on a recent trip. I love the play of light blue stripes against the darker blue body. The stripes are placed perfectly to create a waist that appears smaller. Typically, I shy away from stripes because they create width, but this is an example of how you can use stripes to help create that hourglass shape. The only drawback? It's strapless. And unless you are extra perky, I don't recommend wearing this with more than a C cup. But, one can dream! This dress is definitely a Pra-DO for most!

You can create this look by adding a constrasting belt to a darker colored sheath dress.

On my recent trip to New York, I did not get to do as much shopping as I would have liked. How on earth, I could have become so busy that I couldn't indulge in my favorite past time of shopping for handbags I can't imaging, but I did manage to see a few incredible ones!

Loewe is fast become a hot label in the U.S. When I stopped into Jeffrey in the Meatpacking District, I found a large selection of Loewe handbags. These Spanish beauties come in several different shapes and sizes. I love their classic styling with fashion forward vivid colors!

I love this turquoise shade for spring and summer. Since turquoise is a univesally flattering color, any woman can carry this bag! Keep an eye out for more stores to begin carrying this brand. It's one to watch!
