Fashion is what you are offered four times a year. Style is what you pick out of fashion….”



The world of fashion is ever evolving, and sometimes it is hard to keep up with. Designers release their new line every season with a whole new range of styles, trends, fabrics, and color palettes in hope that the world would welcome each trend with open arms….. Who wouldn’t want unique pieces in their wardrobe?? I know I am dying to get my hands on the latest and greatest must have pieces of the season…

Do you prefer pastels or neon’s; will you go graphic in squares & plaid? Or will you mix and match patterns this Spring/Summer? Before you make those all-important decisions, let me guide you through the season’s must haves..  Let’s talk color. Here is what to look for… Spring/Summer 2013

Expect a feminine, chic silhouette that is appropriate for office as well a night out in the town.  Versatile piece like a dress is very easy to transform from day to night….

Collarless blouses are a must have staple for spring. It is definitely not your grandmother’s blouse….. Designers everywhere have replaced the stiff business shirt with the most elegant, soft, feminine collarless blouse. It is about time… Wouldn’t you say?

Can’t go without talking about SHOES! I mean we all know that shoes can make or break an outfit. Give a girl a pair of shoes and she can take over the world. This spring it is all about pointed shoes, metallic’s, chunky heels, transparent heels, architectural shoes and eye-catching heels. Indulge in the most fabulous heels this season and I promise that you are going to be the “IT GIRL” everyone wants to be…  So, put your best foot forward and do it in style!

Who said only women get to have fun with fashion?? Let’s be real… there is nothing sexier than a man who knows how to dress!! Let me tell you, a well dressed man is my weakness! Every woman wants a man who is dapper.. Can ya blame us??

Similar to women’s palette, the menswear colors for Spring emphasize the need for balance with soothing neutrals accented by an array of energizing bright colors. So, gentlemen…. Don’t be afraid to have a little color in your wardrobe! As we all know it a little color doesn’t really hurt anyone….

Fashion is not about spending Million bucks to look good. Fashion is about learning to mix and match high-end pieces with your everyday steals. Fashion is about being yourself and unleashing your personality.
