Happy New Year and Happy New You!!! The latest fashions flying out the doors of "retailworld" all revolve around two key trends for Spring: flowers and stripes. The flower trend will continue to make a BIG presence in the Spring via prints of all sizes and accessories (shoes, purses, necklaces). Be glad you invested in those adorable bib necklaces with all the rosettes made out of tulle and chiffon, you can carry them into Spring and really jazz up a striped tee and jeans outfit, or go with some really fun floral shoes with a striped tee/cardigan to give some femininity to the manly nautical look. If you are really bold, like the runway models and fashion designers, pair a stripe top with a floral skirt or vice versa. Key point with stripes though: accessorize to avoid looking like a jail bird on the loose! The nautical look is also emerging as a key transition trend into Spring, based on the Fall's military trend, so keep that cute military jacket around; it will look darling with a girly floral skirt or over a striped tee! Just remember: don't over do it, own your fashion, and don't just get dressed ladies....get OUTFITTED!
I'm a stay at home mom who loves to do anything crafty and creative. Born and raised in Tulsa, OK and an avid OSU Cowboys Fan and Alum with a Bachelor's in Apparel Design, got married in October of 2000 and wound up here in Houston. I love being a wife to my best friend and great husband Chris and a mother to my two beautiful kids, Olivia and Nicholas. The kids occupy most of my time, but in my few spare moments of kid-free bliss I love to scrapbook, sew, draw, read cheesy novels, listen to music, workout, and most of all shop! As far as the Fashion Design degree goes, I enjoy finding the latest trends and making them mine on the cheap!
