Hello again fashion lovers!

There are so many great trends that have popped up on the runway for Spring 2011. It full of pattern, neutral colors, and 60s and 70s inspired prints and styles. But there is one trend that is so feminine and girly, it goes right along with the beautiful weather of springtime! It’s Lace!

Lace may be the one staple fabric that exemplifies a woman and her girly ways. Women love lace because it makes them feel sexy and youthful…and it’s easy to wear even in the summer heat.

Lace has been timeless for years in the fashion world with its glamorous and elegant look. Like all great fashion trends in the industry, it has come back in full swing for spring and summer 2011. It is becoming popular in dresses, long and short,skirts and in shoes.

 

Here's Olivia Palermo, star in MTV's shows, The City wearing a short lace dress for a flirty look.

Since the style of lace in clothing has been around for some time, the trend this cycle around is more about antique-style lace. Generally, for this season, you should go for a wider net, a more unique pattern, a sturdier fabric – rather than a thin stretch lace.

Lace is also so easy to dress up with, my favorite, ACCESSORIES!! If you have a simple white lace dress, it’s so easy to go for some big, colorful jewelry that accentuate the overall feminine look of the lace. It’s a perfect summer or spring date night look! Check out this cute lace, strapless dress Joey Eric is featuring right now!!

 

This JE lace dress is so cute and easy to wear! Pair with some great heels and colorful jewelry, and you're ready for a cute spring date night!

Lace is the perfect way to look feminine and classy! Try it out in tops, dresses and skirts and see how you can wear it best! Let me know what you find! Happy shopping! 🙂

Until next time…LOVES

Spring Trend Alert: Flatforms! Fashion Do or Don’t?? March 28, 2011

Hello fashion lovers!

The spring weather is slowly making its appearance this season, but soon it will be here to stay! And don’t forget the summer heat is just around the corner! Time to drag those spring fling dresses out of your closet and pack up the heavy sweaters and boots for the season! What a relief!

As I was recently flipping through some recent trends in fashion magazines for the spring, I came across a trend that broke on the runways of many designers for Spring 2011 collections, and I have to say I’m not sure what I think? Take a look…

It’s called the “Flatform.” A cross between the beloved ballet flat and the easy-to-walk in platform wedge heel. It allows the average woman, who may be afraid of donning the ever-tricky stiletto or platform heel to give herself a little height without the fear of falling over. It has a flat bottom, just raised a few inches to give the wearer height and add a little feminine flair to a spring dress.

Check out these different forms of the "Flatform." They're comfy and easy to wear!

Now while you may be thinking, “What’s the difference from my wedge platforms??” Well, the Flatform has a more “ballet flat” feel to them, giving the bottom of the shoe a completely flat look, just on a platform. It still makes the wearer feel as if she’s wearing her favorite ballet flats. Many designers such as Derek Lam, Michael Kors, Prada and Chanel have given their flatforms different looks ranging from a wedge look to a sandal, to even a regular boat shoe.

Here are different examples of Flatforms previewed on the runway for Spring 2011.

The easiest way to wear a Flatform is with a flirty skirt or lace top, or even a cotton dress…all from Joey Eric boutique, of course!! JE has also got some FABULOUS new jewelry in for the spring, so check it out! You need some bright, funky jewelry to accompany your fashion forward Flatforms!!

So, what do you think?? Ready to rock your Flatforms for spring and summer?! Let me know what you think..are these a Fashion DO or DON’T??

Until next time…LOVES
