The millenium spin on these classic staples now come in an array of bold candy colors for the spring and summer.
Wear them with anything! I chose these amazing loafers by Dolce Vita for their vibrant lemon color and cute details.

We are in a fashion time warp, the 70’s flew pass and now we are in the 60’s! I blinked myself out of existence! This trend calls for sheers, and flowing numbers. We will focus on a few key pieces to add to your wardrobe and i promise you (and my sister) I will keep it short.
1. The Full Skirt
Dropping just below the knee and flaring out while minimizing the waist is the best feature of this skirt. The skirt can be pricey and hard to find at mid-range price:
Gorgeous and a piece I even covet!! We can’t afford Jason Wu’s $1,595 dollar Bergdoff Goodman number but here are a couple that come close:
INC for Macy’s has come up with a slick black variety that lacks fullness but does match in hem and hip hugging action – price 49.99
For a more sportswear look, Ralph Lauren at Bloomingdale’s for much higher price of 159.99 (on sale right now but I am not telling how much)
New York and company had the lowest price at 36.99 but unless you are a 0, 12 or 18, you are out of luck.
The dirty little secret here is Sears which has a remarkable variety ranging from 19.95 to 67 dollars.
The next series in this set is the sheath dress, a staple for the 60’s housewife and now for glamor enthusiast…
The one thing you can say about this summer’s trends is that it is incredibly diverse from lace and silk to camouflage and animal print. The Oscars were a prime example of when the fashion police start handing out so many tickets we all run out to buy the latest trends.
A January trend that most fashion designers skipped was seen in Anne Hathaway’s beautiful red dress. The vibrant color, silk finish and ruffles are reminiscent of the long gone trend. For a paired down look of the trend, check out Jennifer Lawrence.

The most recent trend to hit the spotlight is flocked with lace, trim and sheer fabrics in blush tones. Stars like Scarlett Johansson embrace the lace but go for a more deeper color.
Halle Berry, Hailee Machesa, and Natalie Portman all take a chapter from this trend from trim to gossamer fabrics.
So here is a test for you, are the celebrities in the video embracing one trend or another or just expressing their own style:
The latest entry in our Spring shoe trend are wood platforms. These chunky heels are sexy, comfortable and are a throw back to the seventies! They go great with dresses and skirts and will take you from day to night without having to drag another pair of shoes with you, and you can wear them well into summer! I chose these two platforms because they look way more expensive then they cost so anyone can get the look without spending a lot. Also because the detail of the floral bow on the second platform is perfect for spring!

I’ve noticed the similarities since I saw tapes from my big brother’s favorite show back in the day Drexel’s Class. Actor Phil Buckman had the same long hair and rocker style as the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers,
Anthony Kiedis. They look frighteningly alike. Strangely Phil is now also a musician. You be the judge.
