For what to wear to an weekday event, when the dress code is Cocktails and the weather is still unpredictable, we adore these three smart sheaths from Bergdorf Goodman.  Break out of the black and into a rich deep blue to celebrate the upcoming season.   Each of these are a perfect pallette for a stunning statement necklace, from two of our favorite designers,  Oscar de la Renta and Ashley Pittman.  For bags, we couldn’t resist the Valentino Chain Pochette with just the right amount of edge.  B.Brian Atwood Pump continues the pop of color or choose Alice + Olivia Asymmetrical d’Orday which provides a little more attitude and is one of our MUST-HAVES for the season.
