Looking forward to Spring: Jason Wu

My Harper's Bazaar arrived yesterday, and it had a spring fashion preview! I decided to escape from the cold and imagine what life will be like in a few months by skimming style.com's index of spring fashions. I picked out a few of my favorite looks to share. First up, I am quite a fan of this Jason Wu dress. I like the slim cut, it is classic and it shows off a woman's curves. I also think the two tones give the illusion of two pieces, like you are actually wearing a separate skirt and shirt. If you needed to extend your outfit from work into evening, this dress would be useful because you could easily throw a jacket or cardigan over this dress and slip on some flats to make it more conservative, and then switch to a wrap and heels in the evening. I am a huge fan of the shoes paired with this dress on the runway, I suspect they are black patent leather Manolo Mary Janes. They make the model's feet look so tiny!
