Spring 2010: Belle's Top Ten

This column was originally supposed to contain my Top Five Spring Must Haves, but as I searched the Interwebs for ideas it quickly morphed into my ten.  Clearly, I should not be allowed anywhere near a computer or my credit card for that matter.  But I digress, here are my Ten Spring Must Haves.

The Fun Work Shoe

Betsey Johnson Calandra Pumps (Nordstrom, $149)

These defy the three-inch high heel rule.  I care not.

The Cute Printed Flat

Lela Rose Printed Flat (Payless, $30)

Yes, they’re thirty dollars.  I will race you to the Metro Center Payless.

 A Clutch That Doubles as a Purse

Rebecca Minkoff The Clutch (ShopBop, $330)

Having a large clutch that will fit into your handbag is the perfect thing to bring on trips.

 A Versatile Printed Blouse

Kyoto Medallion Blouse (Anthropologie, $188)

This blouse is perfect under a suit jacket or with a pencil skirt and sweater.  You could wear it with jeans too, if your boss will let you wear jeans to the office.  Mine won’t. 

I’m not bitter, not bitter at all.

 A Nude Racerback Tank

Maggie Ward Tank (BunnyHug, 37 BP)

Having a nude tank will save your life. 

A Structured Cardigan

Steam Trunk Cardigan (Anthropologie, $288)

 This cardigan has a slight Chanel vibe which I like and will be perfect with a white tee and jeans or black pencil skirt.

The Combo Dress

Rebecca Taylor Metallic Tweed Dress (Neiman Marcus, $244)

I bought this at the Cusp sale, and I cannot wait to wear it!!!

The Striped Dress

Striped Wrap Dress (Kate Spade, $355)

How adorable is this dress?  It combines the nautical stripe with the seasons must-have color, grey.  Too precious for words.

 The Colored Trench


Doubled Breasted Trench Coat (Newport News, $69)

I have a khaki trench, so this season I am branching out.  I’m thinking fuschia.

 The Statement Ring

Judith Ripka Blue Quartz Ring (Saks, $450)

Talk about a statement.

    I love the statement ring- I bought one myself on Monday, a vintage bloodstone signet, dating from 1900. Extremely affordable!
