Splash of Prints!!!!!!!!!!!!

Abstract prints, geometric shapes, color everywhere!!!!! No, I'm not talking about a new art exhibit at the National Gallery, but I'm talking about this season's hottest dresses and flirty tops! Art and fashion have indeed found a way to coexist. Flirty, flouncy, dresses with adorable, yet defined prints that are sure to have all eyes on you! Check out the April issue of InStyle "Art of the Matter" page 234. I am really digging the following designers artistic expressions: Adam(formerly Adam & Eve), Alice & Olivia, Vince, and Mint by Jodi Arnold. Check out the dresses and tops that caught my eye. Spring is all about making a splash! Make your mark in a piece of art!!!!

Chevy Chic Eats!!!!!!!!

Looking for a cute little spot to catch up with the girls? A pit-stop between shopping the chic boutiques of Chevy Chase? Look no further than M Cafe' and Bar. A swank , trendy, cozy cafe' tucked away in the corridor of the Collection at Chevy Chase. Not only will you find this yummy little eatery, but high-end retail and restaurants too. The food is tasty. The service is great(ask for Elvis) and the atmosphere is quaint and relaxed! Oh and did I mention parking is available and they validate!!!!! That's what I call fabulous!!!! Dine indoors or take it al fresca when the weather warms! Enjoy, catch up, shop, dine!!! Do it all at the Cafe'!!!!!

Playing the Right Card's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so the weather outside is not so delightful, but you're ready to toss that burly winter coat and trade it in for something lighter! I can totally relate! You just got your favorite, figure flattering, DVF wrap dress out of the cleaners and its all set to be flaunted, but you need a light little number to keep your arms toasty? Try a Cardigan!!! Oh, not your grandfather's, old-school cardigan (those are pretty are hot too), but a fun, frilly, ornate, stylish, little number!!! Cardigans are the perfect alternative to a heavy winter coat and are perfect for layering(check out the cute young lady above). They are a great transition piece from winter to spring and work wonders for those summer nights out in the chilly movie theater! Cardigans can be very versatile...From classic Jcrew numbers, to embellished, fun-filled ones from Anthropologie. I even spied some great, inexpensive Card's at good ol' Forever21!!!!! They can be worn with a simple pair of skinny or wide-legged jeans or over the perfect summer frock! Don't think Mr. Rogers, but Carrie Bradshaw chic...You are sure to have a winning hand!!!!!
