Bright colors are definately in for Spring and Summer. If you are the type of woman that is scared of bright colors, you can introduce them into your wardrobe gradually by adding a bright colored hobo bag for the daytime and a clutch bag for the evening. And if that seems like a big step, you can add some color in your jewerly, with canary hoops and a braclet.

If you are a bold girl, add some color by wearing those emerald shoes with the handbag to match. Adding bold colors can be as simple as adding a bright belt to your sweater and a necklace to match. Another way to add color is wearing a bold colored jacket. The whole wardrobe doesn’t have to be packed with color, it can only be one piece. Color is made to brighten us up and help bring sunshine to our look. Adding bold colors adds a new appearance to you! So don’t be afraid, color is our friend.

Casual Footwear for ALL types

30 Mar

As the seasons change and we find ourselves scrambling for lighter footwear. I have come across some new styles from one of my favorite ‘not-so-expensive’ shoe companies. Vans has some nice styles that are not in your local shoe store. As a fellow Trendsetter, I usually find myself surfing for those limited-edition or custom shoes, sometimes even the sales section will introduce you to some styles that you just haven’t seen before.

Take these black leather limited-edition vans for instance, they have a rather clean, neutral look to them, allowing you to wear them with almost any casual outfit. Whether its jeans and a t-shirt or a pair of bermuda shorts and a cute top. These leather vans add a splash of sophistication that only a follow fashionista or trendsetter would acknowledge.

What I love about Vans is that they are a shoe that you can just throw on. You can also wear them without socks on those warm summer days. And because they are super comfortable they can be an added plus to your toosties on those days where you are just strolling around with friends.

BEYONCE “FREAKUM DRESS”

Beyonce “Freakum Dress”

Beyonce has done it this time! This video is perfect! All the dress changes excites me as a designer. Each dress has it’s own personality gold, red, orange, mint green, green, midnight, and pink. Backless, long split at the side, tube top, key hole in the middle, and definately short. It doesn’t hurt that she has a little runway in the middle of the video. Her accessories are flawless gold hoops, gold choker, and gold pumps to match.

Enjoy Ms.Beyonce doing what she does best!
