Spring is here! They say springtime represents new life, a renaissance of sorts. I see it as an opportunity to revamp our closets and breathe new life into our daily wardrobe. A time to put away our sweaters, coats, leggings and boots in the dark colors of winter and re-emerge in the flirty dresses, tops, tanks and sandals in the warm colors of Spring. Particularly, the pastel colors that herald the start of this new season.
I teamed up with Farfetch to bring you my inspiration for springtime. I put together a wishlist/inspiration board that represents how I see myself in these coming months.Each piece is not only a spring silhouette – think crop tops, vests, and dresses – but also is in a soft pastel color that matches the warm weather that Spring brings us.
I am most of all obsessed with the Alexander McQueen off the shoulder mini dress. Nothing says Spring like a ruffly mini dress in a warm cloud blue that shows off a little shoulder and a little leg.
Take a look at my wishlist below and be inspired to revamp your own wardrobe with some pieces that evoke the warmth and renaissance that Spring brings!

In November of last year, John Galliano lost a wrongful termination suit against his former employers, Christian Dior and his namesake label, John Galliano, both of which Galliano was the head designer of until the two fashion houses fired him after a very public anti-Semetic rant that occurred in a Parisian bar in early 2011.
This week, Galliano has appealed the decision of the court. Galliano had originally claimed that LVMH, which owns and operates both brands, knew of his dependency on alcohol and drugs and that his termination was wrongful, as such he was entitled to damages.
John Galliano has lost his wrongful termination lawsuit against Christian Dior and his namesake line, John Galliano. Let’s go back a couple years to 2011. One of the biggest stories to hit the fashion industry: John Galliano was arrested for an anti-Semitic tirade in a Parisian bar. This led to his suspension and eventual termination of his tenure as creative director for Christian Dior and John Galliano, both owned by LVMH (Galliano, however, retains 91% ownership of his namesake brand).
Galliano then sued both brands in 2012 for wrongful termination claiming that LVMH had no cause for terminating his employment and asked for nearly $18 million in damages. LVMH attempted to dismiss the lawsuit to commercial court arguing that Galliano was a subcontractor and not an employee. However in February of this year, the French Labour Relations Court held that it would hear the case in its court.
