Issue: #42April 2014

  Okay, it's April, and I think we can agree that, despite the cool rainy day here and there (and I hope it's not too frequent), it is Spring!

  I feel like I just put my summer clothes away, but now it's time to bring them out, remind myself of what I have, and what I'm missing. There are always those favorite pieces that just can't make it through another season, and must go to clothing heaven! I have to review what shoes I wore with what, which little sweaters I used to top which dress, and then there's New, New, New - great, tempting, perfect pieces I must invite into my closet.

   Spring is full of promise and fun occasions - weddings, showers, dinners, graduations - needing the perfect outfit or thoughtful gift.

   And we are here to help!

New Dress from Texture!

   You are always welcome to bring in items you're hoping to match or coordinate with, trying them on to get the full effect, as well as our expert help! With the work of over 200 artists, we have a fabulous selection of all sorts of accessories and jewelry to complete your outfit. And we have added more clothing for you to choose from, all small designers who produce in the U.S.

   So whether you need to freshen and add to an outfit, or are starting from scratch, stop by soon and embrace Spring!
