You probably saw this coming, but a bevy of spring denim looks are popping up everywhere. Glory be, if more tastefully-done denim (not just chambray) dresses make it out to retailers in the coming months. I’ve already seen some lovely Acne/Lanvin 2010 reveals. Yummers! And, what makes this year different in the world of accessorizing your fave denim looks, is, the shoes aren’t getting any smaller. They may be phasing out large vehicles like The Hummer, but super-sized shoes aren’t going away anytime soon. Haven’t they injured enough girls on the runway yet?
My Pick: Acne/Lanvin 2010 Ruched Shoulder Dress.
