Pop of Color!

This  is the season to add that pop you have always wanted (but were afraid to add!)

From tops, bottoms (if you dare!), to any accessory you can imagine-you can be bold and bright...


           red cork heel     purple sweater         coral peasant top

             Payless Shoe: $19.95            Old Navy: $17.50            French Cuff: $89.00


Whites Rule!

This  is the Spring and Summer staple.  Pull out those white jeans and wear them with your metallic shoes and purses.  Look what we found...


      white tank                           white trench                                                  

Banana Republic $45.00                      Nordstrom $118.00


Stripes are Right!

Be careful with this trend.  Find a cute tank like the one below and wear a cardigan or jacket over it so that you won't look wide.  Stripes are great going vertical too.  They come in every color and in lots of shapes...

Garnet Hill $48.00                              New York & Co $22.95



Fashion News

This is THE month to look at magazines for new Spring Trends.  The styles to look for this season are Bright and always there are some looks to avoid. 


Long Skirts:  The length is odd to have for spring/summer, but it is here.  Make sure the length hits between your mid shin and ankle...any higher and you will look dumpy.

                   Express $44.90                                              Athleta $98.00


Dresses are still long (as in the maxi).  This is a tough look to pull off.  Make sure the dress does not drag on the floor or make you look pregnant!


Cargo pants, shorts and jackets are everywhere.  That means there are pockets on everything.  Always watch out for the placement of these little buggers.  On a jacket- if the pockets are right over a full chest-they can make you look rather large.  On shorts and pants-they can make you look hippy.   

What to buy this month

CAbi - This is the best time to get in on the great new spring style offerings from this line.  Get your order in soon for best selections and sizes.  You can contact Veronica Peckham at  I was particularly fond of their Grey jeans, print tops and shirt jackets.

News from Rebecca

I am doing so many shows for private groups that I don't have time to do one for myself.  If you want to get a small group together at your home, let me know.  I will consider bringing the trends to you. 


Thanks for all of your well wishes for my back.  It is definitely working- I am almost 100%.
