Because of my affinity for ballerinas (owed entirely to Edgar Degas), I became outrageously excited while discovering photographs from J.Crew's September 2011 catalog. It featured ballerinas from the St. Petersburg Ballet doing their points, positions and pliés while clad in J.Crew cashmere. What struck me most about the photographs was the stunning color palette. Ivory tights and ballet pink slippers were paired with a variety of muted neutral sweaters, from heather grey to light camel. Eager to wear these beautiful colors in spring, I've put together a collection of ballet-palette sweaters and skirts.

Every once in a while in fashion a trend arises that's absolutely polarizing. The perfect example? Birkenstock style sandals. People seem to either love or hate them. Personally I've never had a strong stand on the hippie shoes, but after seeing them worn by some of my fashion icons, the style is growing on me. Amy Astley, Teen Vogue's Editor-in-Chief, recently posted a couple of images of her sandal-clad feet on Instagram. The thick-strapped shoes looked super fresh in white and also very comfy. I may have to treat myself to a pair!
