Joyann King's Shopping List for spring.. and what I want for spring

I live and breathe fashion, even when I am wearing my yoga clothes from 2 days ago! One way I keep up with fashion is on Harper's Bazaar on-line. Joyann King (Fashion and Lifestyle editor extraordinare) lists her Spring Wishlist. Here are some picks that I love too! This is just a springboard, a lot of this is TRES CHER but good to know about so the next time you are at TJ Max or fighting the masses at the Nordstrom Rack you'll know what to look for. As a wardrobe curator and stylist this is something that I do constantly; find what is chic and flattering and then find it at all price ranges for various clients.

1. Updated Denim Jacket 
Rag and Bone denim jacket $495 (we will be look for lessing this one I'm afraid Joyann...)

2. Pattern play
J.W. Anderson Sweater 

3. Transparent Tote
Fendi Bag

4. Mod Style sunglasses
Illesteva glasses 

5. Cool pumps
Pierre Hardy holographic pumps--LOOK out--you have to call on these bad boys: 646-449-0070

Storming the Third Street Promenade...and a Forever 21 Ensemble

The Equinox where I exercise is located right next to the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. After an all too quick 20 min jog, I raced out in the rain on the hunt for some fun items for my wardrobe that were not expensive but just pure fun! My first stop was the new Madewell that just arrived in our hood this week!

Here is what I found there as far as accessories:
Tracecraft Bangle
Bracelet on the left, right side only in stores

Next I made my way over to Forever 21 looking for some inexpensive fun jewelry for clients. These are what I found:


These were in the store.  I was looking for this style (I love every color!)that is sold out but was happy with these for $5. I love the way these look on. The perfect size and shape--just don't sleep in these and heaven forbid you should shower in them..it's a gamble but they are a fun way to update your earrings for a great price.

Matte Stud set 
(I will not be wearing most of these but love the wings--for $3.50 I am happy to pass on the rest).

Faceted Diamond Shaped Studs

Lacquered Anchor Studs

THEN...I found these items:

Let me preface; I spend a lot of time looking at very expensive clothing for clients. When I see something that is practically free at Forever 21 I buy and then I buy in additional sizes for clients and people who will want them too. This jacket is awesome. It is buttery soft, faded out denim and the fit is true to size and fab. The dress runs small but is really cool. The Asymmetrical cut is flattering and French chic and the faux leather on the front panel is perfect-not too shiny and more matte than it looks like in that Elvira photo below.  I am an XS and this is a Medium. I needed a bit more length. Also, I have a small black slip like this that I am wearing underneath to make that underskirt look a bit longer.

Here is a photo of my ensemble on the way to parent teacher conferences.  Photo by Luke(age 5). Not bad Luke.

Ignore the pasted hair and no make-up. 

Here is a Lookbook on what I am going to wear with all of this under $60 goodness:(High Low mix)

Great finds via The Scout Guide, AND GEORGE

The Scout Guide is a great resource for shopping local and finding gorgeous things near you and in the places you visit.  They have a "library" with guide books on all the local haunts of cities around the US.  Check it out!  Also, this post on Valentines Gifts is fantastic--I want that tote!
