Hanah Snavely, Los Angeles
nnMike Gonzalez, available at Diavolina, Traffic, and Ron Herman.
n“I'm convinced I need every single piece from the SS11 collection of Los Angeles-based designer Mike Gonzalez. I can't get enough of his take on spring's lightweight tribal aesthetic: black and white geometric prints, splashes of bright yellow, and slate undertones. I intend to fully mimic the turban/statement necklace/layered tee/leather bottoms look all season.”
The Feast/First Rite
Katie Hintz-Zimbrano, San Francisco
nFirst Rite Ladder Dress, $190 at Villains Vault and Shotwell
n"When I first heard about local designer Nikki Garcia's First Rite debut collection, this was the piece that really got me. I love that it's minimal, but has interesting details like the striking pattern on the back and the folding of the skirt. I'm excited for it to arrive in stores in April."
The Feast/Mimi and Red
Chantal Gordon, San Diego
nBB Dakota Fletcher Dress, $86 at nMimi and Red
n“I adore the slinky ease of this dress. In the pale limestone pink, it's a blank slate ideal for accessorizing — with a gargantuan cocktail ring and an interesting pair of wedges perhaps, or with a geometric VPL bra underneath. Or, you could wear this with nothing else, and it’s still a head-turner.”
The Feast/Bergdorf Goodman
Laurel Pinson, New York City
nProenza Schouler Shibori Chiffon Dress, $880 at nBergdorf Goodman
n“With all respect to the new minimalism, I like prints for spring. Erdem, Peter Som, and Proenza Schouler created some of my favorites, and while I can't afford PS's $6K neon lace shifts, this feather-light printed shift captures the mood of the collection nicely.”
The Feast/Pixie Market
Tiffany Davis, New York City
nOlive Layered T-Strap Dress, $119 at Pixie Market
n“I’m as psyched to wear tights now — and long skirts through summer — as the next fashion lover. But I simply can’t wait to go out and buy up dresses and skirts with off-kilter hemlines. Tulip, ballet, cascading, asymmetrical — bring it.”
The Feast/Joie
Daisy Simmons, Chicago
nJoie Floral V-Neck Dress, $334 at Trillium
n“It's silk chiffon and has a cotton lining, so no slip needed. I like it because it's a great transitional piece: You can wear it on colder days with boots, a belt, and a long cardigan, or on its own into summer, as a loose spring dress with bright flats."
The Feast/Net-a-Porter
Marni Katz, Boston
nIsharya Short Gypsy 18-karat gold-plated earrings $295 at Net-a-Porter
n“I think all the green on the Golden Globes red carpet got to me. I’ve been off earrings for a while, but can’t get these gorgeous gold and emerald chandelier stunners out of my head.”
The Feast/Opening Ceremony
Megan Baldwin, Connecticut
nChloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Winnie Sailor Baby Doll Dress, $390 at Opening Ceremony
n“I love Chloe Sevigny (she's a Connecticut girl) almost as much as I love polka dots and baby doll dresses. So this super sweet combination is tip tops on my spring lush list. I wish I could pair it with a Chloe's higher than heaven Mary Janes, but they’re way too tall, and way too expensive, so I'll probably end of opting for a more wallet friendly pair of wooden platforms from the upcoming Hasbeens for H&M collaboration.”
The Feast/Anthropologie
Kandace Cornell-Nadelberg, Boston
nRiver Fish Dress, $298 at Anthropologie
“I'm loving this River Fish dress from Anthropologie. The colors are so bright and festive, the drapey silhouette is lovely for spring, and the sequins are designed to catch the light and resemble fish scales.”
The Feast/Koko & Palenki
Melissa Cantor, Miami
nTwelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Maxi Dress, $428 at Koko & Palenki
n"Floor-sweeping dresses in colorful prints are perfect for weekends in Miami. I love the way this is styled -- the belt streamlines the silhouette, and the dark vest and purse add a little 'downtown' to the outfit. The result is more polished, but just as comfortable."
The Feast/Sarah Cecilia
Nicole Aguire, Washington, D.C.
nSarah Cecilia Fishhook Necklace, $40 at Etsy
n“Local designer Sarah Cecilia works out of her Washington, D.C. studio making jewelry for men and women by hand. I love this fishhook necklace because it's edgy and delicate all at once. I'm really into gold jewelry right now, but I prefer more subdued designs to statement pieces.”
The Feast/Nordstrom
Julie Davis, Philadelphia
nTory Burch Isabeli Printed Chiffon Caftan, $450 at Nordstrom
n“I'm on the hunt for the perfect maxi dress, and this printed chiffon number by Tory Burch meets all of my requirements: The one-piece style makes it a chic, yet no-fuss option for everything from running errands to dinners out with family and friends.”
The Feast/Anthropologie
Lisa Petty, Dallas
nSeamingly Maxi Skirt, $98 at Anthropologie
n"I'm gravitating toward stripes this spring, and plan to mix them up with prints or bright colors. To balance the bold contrast, I'll keep the accessories neutral -- that's 'neutral', not boring."
