Dress Option for Spring

So, every once in a while, I get asked to do a bit of fit modeling at work.  I happen to be the sample size and 5’5″ so it’s convenient for me to jump out from behind my computer and try on some of the new things our buyer is thinking about getting for Spring.

This lovely dress is inspired by one we had in the store last year, but with some improvements.  We made it a bit longer as well as more fitted in the bust area.  Now the only question is:  What colors do we want to get this dress in?  I personally think it would be fabulous in black with the bottom panel in a stark white. (Can you tell I have a think for the B&W trend this Spring?).  We also discussed nude with a cream trim and coral with a cream trim.

Please feel free to leave comments and let me know which color combo you would buy!

4 ways to wear your chambray shirt

One of the hottest, must have items for the Fall was the chambray shirt.  So, how can you take this wardrobe essential and refresh it for Spring?

Take some hints from these 4 looks:

Look 1: This simple yet flirty look pairs the shirt with short black shorts, opaque tights and flat, brown, lace up boots.  The emphasis here is on the legs, so keep the shirt buttoned all the way up.

Look 2: Take a more feminine approach by layering your chambray shirt over a floral blouse and using a skinny belt to accentuate your waistline.  Relaxed fit, faded jeans and some platform wedge sandals complete this soft spring look.

Look 3: Mix preppy with flirty by layering a striped, scoop neck sweater over your chambray shirt.  A floral pleated skirt and strappy sandals complete this springtime look.

Look 4: Class it up with high waisted, pleated shorts or trousers and a tucked in blouse.  The chambray shirt acts as a casual accent and gives the look just the edge it needs.
