Spring 2008 Wish List - Spring's Best Items

3.1 Phillip Lim Fringe Sandal
I love the way these sandals are in tune with spring's "explorer" trend and yet aren't too overtly high fashion (ie. one could wear them to a fabulous party or camping). The fringe detail is a fun seasonal update on winter's fringed boots.

3.1 Phillip Lim Happiness Boyfriend Tee

This shirt looks like one of those fun 80's finds someone would buy at a thrift store in a movie (you know, those mythical thrift stores where you don't need to rummage through the stained, plus size sweat suits to find the good stuff). I love the slightly too-long sleeves and the fun graphics - cute!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Cashmere Colorblock Dress

This dress is so fun! It's girly and trendy, but still wearable. I love the pairing of the turqouise blue with the navy - an odd combination and yet the white blocks in between break it up and make the combination stunning. Plus, it's cashmere and thus super-comfy.

Marc Jacobs Collection Peep Toe with Misplaced Heel

These are controversial, yes, but I would wear them! By keeping the color scheme simple, Jacobs allows the heel to be the focal point. These are definitely shoes for getting noticed, but with a simple shift dress, they would look excellent.

Topshop T Bar Shoe

Topshop is the love of my life. Not living in England, I have to make due with Topshop binges every time I'm in London (which is unfortunately every few years). These shoes call to mind Restoration era plays and witty banter. The tassel detail updates the t bar and keeps it fresh.
