I was curating the perfect collection of clothes and accessories for a trip to Paris and Amsterdam in June. THAT'S NOT HAPPENING ANYMORE! I guess I'll have to model the 20+ looks in the house. Here's a few of the stand-out pieces in my "cancelled trip to Europe" suitcase.
I had to move mountains to get these Dior D-Trap ankle boots (available at Dior). These fishnet cutout boots were a key piece on the runway. The reinvented combat boot has a leather flap with double buckles and a few signature Dior features - the bee, gold Christian Dior logo and black star on the sole. These boots would have turned heads in Paris - maybe next year..
I'm a HUGE fan of Moschino t-shirts. They're high quality and make a statement. I was planning to pair this Moschino BULLCHIC! t-shirt (available at Farfetch) with a Tibi turquoise jacquard midi skirt and the Dior D-Trap boots. It would have been my Carrie Bradshaw in Paris moment. No worries - this t-shirt will not go to waste.
My sunglasses collection is overflowing, BUT I managed to fit one more pair in there. These DiorCamp aviator sunglasses (available at Farfetch) were made for me. The straight pink arms don the CD logo and the slightly tinted pink lens adds sofiticaticon. LOVE!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to snag this Christian Dior Book Tote (available at Dior). It is gorgeous. The Toile de Jouy embroidered pattern was inspired by Mr. Dior's muse. I love the complexity of the pattern, along with the grey shades and Christian Dior signature on the front.
The Dior book tote is timeless and while it is reinvented each season, the old ones never go out of style. Interesting fact - you can collapse these totes and pack them nicely in your suitcase.
The iconic Moschino teddy bear has a three dimensional effect and a playful vibe. The teddy bear makes an appearance each season and is super cute. I like that this one is bursting through a piece of art. From a fashion obsessed state of mind - this Moschino teddy bear t-shirt (available at Farfetch) is a piece of art.
I have a very basic hairstyle - a slightly slanted bob, colored black. It's chic, but you can't do much with it. Albeit, hair clips do add a little flare. I purchased this Off-White two-toned hair clip (available at Revolve) to hold my tiny strands together and add a little contrast. The white and black clip holds my thin hair nicely and looks great against my black hair.

On the runway these urban modern Diorcamp boots are paired with an all-white look; donning white, framed glasses and a short feather-embellished anorak. Of course, I had to have these boots. I'm a big fan of the cargo-style and off-white is my go-to shade.
When I opened the box to unveil these must-have Dior boots, I was surprised that they were rubber and had print along the sides. The print says CHRISTIAN DIOR PARIS and MAINTENIR LE DOUBLE LACAGE SERRE. There ya have it fashionable friends - double laces are on trend..
There is also a bee printed at the back to arouse curiosity and a black star on the sole. These rubber boots have a reinforced neoprene sock for comfort and of course, can be worn in the rain.
I initially thought the Diorcamp boots were your average, cargo-stye - NOPE! I'm thrilled to don these unexpected, statement rubber boots.
One of my new favorites - Baum Und Pferdgarten, one of the leading Danish fashion houses. The collections are colorful and fun. I saw this Baum Und Pferdgarten Cassiopeia knitted sweater on the runway and patiently waited for it to become available online. This slightly cropped chunky knit has a round neckline, dropped shoulders and contrasting print that says LET ME DANCE.
Every few seasons, I latch on to a new designer and Dior has been my favorite for a while now. I LOVE this Dior off-white, embroidered camouflage saddle bag. This bag design is synonymous with the brand and while the saddle bag shape remains the same, each season this style is reinvented. I'm obsessed with camouflage, off-white and well.. this is a match made in b.a.gorgie heaven.
Oh Dior - I'm so obsessed with Dior! The latest J'adior cotton oblique bracelet set in my collection is black and white. These bracelet sets are perfect for layering. I like to wear one cotton set, along with a delicate palladium finished bracelet and beaded bracelet.
I was recently shopping in SOHO, NY. After Dior I decided to give the AMEX a break. Until this Balenciaga Ville xxs top handle handbag begged me to take it home. I wouldn't consider myself a Balenciaga fan, but this mini bag was just too perfect. I love the pale pink shade and contrasting white Balenciaga print.
As I'm writing this My Must Haves post, I'm realizing that I'm into clothes and accessories with words printed on it - The boots, sweater and bag. Hmm.. didn't even notice that was a trend in my Spring collection till now.
While I often stray from my Fendi obsession, I always come back. These Fendi sunglasses have a gold-toned frame, pink lenses and the iconic mirror-effect Pequin motif. This sporty style is modern and unique to my sunglasses collection.
