Cherry trees in blossom, birds happily singing even late at night, tulips blooming around – nature finally opened wide its sleepy eyes unfolding all the spring colors for us.
Inspired by the lustrous petals and aroma of flowering trees, I knew the It Purse of April had to BE Dior!
This superb Dior creation brings the fresh modern take on a timeless elegance. Structured silhouette adds a new urban tone to this sophisticated handbag. Luxurious black satin-finish calfskin adorned with the exquisite strings of gilded flowers creates a striking effect. The tiny colorful flowers, like climbers suspended on the ropes, intrigue the eye and make you come closer to admire this dainty motif and the subtle red “CD” incorporated in the marvelous decoration. The bold red handle pops up against the lavish black and offers an extraordinary contrast to the remarkable Dior signature charm enveloped in bleu céleste leather. Embellished with silvertone jewelry, this purse exhibits the essence of sheer artistry in design. And yes, it is equipped with a longer strap so you can wear it as a crossbody bag too.
Let’s toast it with some outfit ideas!
Chic Girl’s Picks
The Dior Be Dior bag just emanates a fresh spring air with its little flower cascades and pop of cheerful colors. It clearly calls for a company of some seasonal accents like this Betsy Johnson Print Stretch Midi dress ($89) that perfectly attunes with the floral design of the purse. Beautiful allover spring print in vibrant watercolors coupled with the stylish midi length make for a refreshing attire that you can easily dare, both for your company meeting and outdoor Sunday brunch. Pair it with these Jessica Simpson Claudette pumps ($79) in lipstick red and you will surely make an entrance wherever you step in. A graceful half d’Orsay silhouette and lush red patent leather seduce the eye leading it from the stiletto to the succulent red handle of the bag. To complement the look, all you need are some flowery jewelry pieces to add to this feast of blossom: Pandora Shimmering Rose Stud earrings ($60) and Pavé Rose ring ($65), Pandora Dazzling Daisy ring ($60) and Nadri Nouveau Vine bracelet ($78) – all in silvertone to marry the hardware of the handbag. This sharp Coach Tristen Multi Dial Bracelet watch ($186) provides a chic balance to the delicate, feminine elements of the outfit. Glittering crystal indexes bring an extra sparkle and the sky blue dial joins the blue Dior logo charm in a match made in heaven.
This harmonious combination of modern florals, elegant shapes and classy accessories will definitely make you ready for any spring venture in the city. So grab a cab and off you go! First stop? The Whitney Museum of American Art which officially opens tomorrow May 1st in its new location in the Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Get ready!

Sophisticated Lady’s Picks
The Dior Be Dior purse alone is a sensational “flash-turner” and an immediate paparazzi’s favorite, especially when paired with this asymmetrical Jay Godfrey Tama Stretch Crepe Peplum sheath ($325) featuring a structured hourlgass silhouette and the sweetheart-neckline bodice, and these spectacular fire red Prada Suede Triple-Strap Wavy sandals ($830) that spice up the outfit with a brilliant pop of color that matches the red handle of the Dior bag. Bare shoulders tops are so on the menu this SS15 offering the opportunity to expose beautiful décolletage and exhibit stunning jewelry like this magnificent Oscar de la Renta Delicate Silver Tulip necklace ($595), earrings ($185) and bracelet ($350). The silver tulip-inspired artwork adds to the spring bouquet of the purse bringing a refreshing touch to this sophisticated outfit. Slip your fingers into the Ippolita Venezia Diamond ring ($995) and Kay Diamond Tulip ring ($119), and you are flash-ready to walk the Met Gala Red Carpet.
