As we shove winter out the closet door and make preparations to send all that heavy fabric off to hibernation, there’s no denying that spring fever couldn’t come sooner for 90% of the NYC and northern states’ populations. But as we enter the transitioning season of snow melting to flowers, our clothing attire needs to refrain from jumping into the crop top bandwagon right away.

Black was the standard color of this dreadful winter and what better way to say “SEE YA” than with a bold red tote. Right now, this bag does all the talking and has the right to showboat. As the temps get warmer each week, the color transition won’t appear quite as harsh. But for the time being, I feel the need to make an appropriate statement right off the bat.

    Red is quite the mood AND game-changer, huh 🙂 adds a whiff of freshness into any glum day outfit. Not that yours is any form of dreary. It’s incredibly chic and sleek. And I’m so shooting myself in the foot. Sigh. Anyhoo, hello. I’m a new fan.
