Brightening Up Your Closet

We talked a few weeks ago about how tie dye was one of this summer’s hottest trends, but there’s another trend that we also need to discuss – bright colors! Now, I know that it isn’t a surprise to most of you that the bolds come out as the weather warms up, but I wanted to show you which colors seem to be the most popular for 2010!

Moving away from the greens and blue, the hit colors for this season seem to fall more into the citrusy spectrum. Pinks, oranges, yellows, that’s the colors that people seem to be clamoring for. Like the orange tank below from Green Dragon, $83, or the Green Dragon Tang Wap, $87, under that, when you go with these colors, you’ll be able to taste the juicy oranges and grapefruits they’re inspired by.

Pulling off this look is simple. You can pair bright color with simply jeans or with crisp white pants for a refreshing put-together look. For accessories, I would go with black, the contrast will really make the colors pop. Maybe a simple black beaded necklace, black drop earrings – they will really accent the rest of your outfit.

Don’t be afraid of color – everyone can pull it off, even if it’s just adding orange pumps to your feet. If you’re unsure, just start small, a touch here, a touch there.

The Final Touches – Accessories

We’ve brought you the best little black dresses and the most stylish shoes to wear when you go see Sex and the City 2 this weekend (if you haven’t been granted a preview – that is), so now all that’s left to do is to round out your outfit with a few great pieces of jewelry.

These bangles (a steal at only $14, also available in a gold tone) are a great way to finish off any outfit, whether you’re going for dressy or casual. The tiny beaded hints of color will match any shoes that you choose to pair with your LBD without being overkill.

Anything from Seasonal Whispers is going to impress your friends with it’s exotic (yet somehow familiar) style. The elegance and class is evident in the pieces, making it suitable for such a movie. We have a great selection in store for you to browse and try on, like these stunning earrings below.

Since you went classy and simple for your dress, you can afford to go a little wild with your jewelry. If you go with a neutral-tone shoe, you can even go a little crazy with color. Chunky pieces like this Kenda Kist necklace, priced at $65, is the perfect mixture of texture, color and style. It’s a fun, flirty necklace, something that you can easily see Carrie wearing!

Whatever you end up wearing, just remember to have fun ladies!!

Smart Shoppers love Savings…Code Sweetdeal!

As Fashionistas everywhere change their spending habits and purchasing styles….everyone is looking for that magical wand to help them get the best savings.

This is nothing new….just alot more prominent now that we have gone thru a major recession.  Everyone seems to be shopping for the best “deals” these days.

Hmmm…..a DEAL!….what exactly does that mean?

I would say that a deal is a “wise” purchase on something that will either add value to your everyday life or give you savings towards something that is a “desire”……

Now….I always admit to all of my customers…that most of us really don’t need ANYTHING! (other than air, water, & love)….but it’s the replacement or substitution of something that is already in our lives that will help us to live better, BE better and maybe just maybe add a little zing to our everyday steps:)

Hence, Spring Shopping seems to be now in full bloom….ladies are excited about warmer weather and the chance to update and revive their tired old winter look!

So….ABRACADABRA!…..if you’ve been on complete budget lockdown….let the savings begin

I mean really?!?….how LONG can a girl go without New Shoes!:)

yes….we have to change the shoes, the tops, the jackets…the accessories….a bit of a chore but done a little at a time…you’ll be the girl that all your buddies wonder “how she does it?”

Two things that can easily change the look of your wardrobe are a Spring Jacket and Shoes….

Spring Jacket

Stylish Spring Jacket

These are the pieces that will be worn over and over in your wardrobe….

Sooo…..get something you will love to pull out of your closet….

This Stylish Silver Jacket is a TRUE BARGAIN at $51.00….

It’s not always about price….you MUST consider the value of an item to you rather than going by PRICE alone!

If you will wear the more expensive item more often and it seems like a good fit for your lifestyle….then it’s not necessarly a budget DON’T!

There are plenty of inexpensive items out there…..but my advice is to buy what will give you the best value….
