Get Inspired [Spring 2010!]

The only thing getting most of us through this horrible cold and wind is the prospect of warmth and sun in a few short months- its almost time to escape from the sea of black wardrobes with leather and studs and move to a more cheery and fun look. The Spring 2010 runway collections from our favorite high end designers will motivate you to play and experiment with your look with colors and print and shed the serious skin of winter dressing.

Erdem's spring collection caught our eyes for their stunning use of floral prints in layers-also their dresses are perfect with a pair of simple sandals in the summer but can also be dressed up with heels for a night out!

Richard Chai mixes prints and solids for a unique style that will set any girl apart from the crowd, loving the use of floral for a cute, wearable jumper!

Brights are so refreshing to see! Time to change from black to bright.
Marc Jacobs embodied the spirit of youth and playfulness in his Spring Collection at Louis Vuitton-a quirky mix of fabrics and prints inspires us to use our wardrobes to create a whole new look!

Another great look from Louis Vuitton Spring 2010.

Proenza Schouler used surfing inspiration for their current spring collection- adding texture and print to a simple babydoll dress makes it feel new and fresh.

Stella McCartney's spring collections have always been one of my favorites- a sense of uninhibited femininity with a bit of edge makes it stand out.

Loving the exaggerated ruffles and voluminous skirt, another great look from Stella McCartney.

I've long been a fan of Marni's use of colors and prints, heres a perfect example of a fun summer dress paired with white boots.

Chris Benz injects youth and creativity into every look, pairing sheer fabrics with a perfect color pallet thats great for a work look thats more exciting than the typical black and grey drab style.

Sophisticated and fun all in one from Chris Benz.

A bright burst of turquoise is reminiscent of the sea and the summer sky, an effortless look thats perfect for a casual day dress. Proenza Schouler Spring 2010.
