Perfect Transitional Pieces

Boots - The months may be moving along, but there's still snow on the ground (sorry!) and the thought of wearing a peep-toe practically gives us pneumonia, so its still appropriate to be shopping in the boot category. We're not saying that you have to be completely practical though - and that's why we love these Maison Martin Margiela silhouetted ankle boots (above, size 36) SOLD, and these classic brown suede Fiorentini + Baker triple buckle stompers (below, size 37) SOLD.

Something Black - There are still a couple of cold weeks left before the thoughts of prints or pastels or short sleeves should cross your mind. We would rather opt for this gorgeous black Balenciaga dress with swinging ruffled hem (left). The other piece is something that everyone should have in their closet - a cashmere asymmetrical wrap sweater by Michael Kors - while one side flaunts a modest drape, the other hangs like a scarf down to your ankles, giving you infinite options for wear. BOTH PIECES HAVE BEEN SOLD.

Blazer - This is a look that is never tired, and always gives you the appearance of being held together. Starting off this season's aresenal of blazers are the tuxedo collar version by Dsquared2 (left) and 3-pocketed charcoal wool by Rag & Bone (right). D2 SOLD. Rag & Bone SOLD.

Crisp White Shirt - At Eva Gentry Consignment, we can't settle with the expected, so we offer your two (there's more in shop) options for updating this classic. To the left is a tunic length shirtdress by the ever so popular BOY by Band of Outsiders. To the right is a perfectly pirate-y deconstructed shirt by Vivienne Westwood. Westwood is SOLD.

Pleated Skirt - and not the schoolgirl variety. Black by Balenciaga, and bronze by Diane Von Furstenberg (SOLD).
