Last night I took part in a focus group session for Real Simple magazine; one of my favorite go to resources for all things, Easy Living! The group consisted of real, everyday women, from various walks of life and style!! It was very apparent to me, that all women, regardless of age, socio-eco status, or race, just want to be stylish! So that was the topic of our discussion...Style! It appears that Real Simple is looking to add more fashion to their current layout, which I am not at all opposed to so long as it keeps with their current tradition of Simple Living!!! Keeping all things style related, the topic of favorite places to shop was brought to the table and of course the likes of Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Macy's, Saks and others were mentioned! To my surprise so was Talbots! And funny enough, I had just received a style stalker email from WWW regarding none other than...Talbots! Well, apparently Talbots has revamped! They have truly updated their more conservative look and took on some of the more obvious trends(belted dresses, trench coats, and eye-popping colors) and they even have a waaay cute blog. I was pleasantly surprised and inspired!!! Truly, we have all been inspired by our First Lady, who is the number 1 trendsetter of late. One should never rule out old fav's! Always remember style is in the eye of the beholder and we all have a little bit in each of us! And the options continue to be unlimited!!!

Check out my new favorite sweatshirt....It's the Chrissie and it's part of the 1971 collection from Reiss, which is a great Euro Store my Canadian friend(Thanks, Ana) turned me on to!! They are a mix of Karen Millen(another great store for the ladies) and Club Monaco! Monochromatic at its best!!! This sweatshirt is a great, weekend essential. It mixes two hot trends of the moment: jersey fleece and exposed zippers!!! Why not try one on for fun? It has so much potential...Wear it long over leggings or cropped, with short shorts!!! Unlimited looks for $140 bucks!!!! It's worth the investment and you will be one hot number in it!!!!
Live Long and Don't Sweat the Details!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Military inspired looks are on the fashion radar for Spring/Summer 2010!!! Think cadet jackets and cargo pants, more and army fatigue less(although, I have been seeing lots of fatigues from JCrew to Gap). Think green and khaki colored anoraks for Spring and bright yellow and fuchsia utility short shorts and shirt dresses for Summer! Here are some looks from the Gap, to keep you inspired, as you anxiously await the coming of warm weather. Some of us may even be welcoming home a loved one from their tour of duty...Why not salute them in style!!! Try a military inspired look today!!!!!!
Check out the newest locations of one of my favorite shops!!! What a clever concept...And probably a lot more cost effective! Cusp Boutiques open in their parent store, Neiman Marcus! Now open in San Francisco, Dallas, and Atlanta!!!! If you don't have one, hopefully one will soon be arriving in a Neiman's near You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Attention to details is what one thinks when they see what's hot and new in Spring footwear! Stud detailing is showing up on just about everything, just below the ankle! From booties to towering pumps and everything in between(I'm all about the in between, personally). My favorites come from the likes of DolceVita. They definitely have made their mark on this trend! Check out Neve, my favorite. Great details, with studs and zipper, flat, comfy...What more could one ask for in a shoe!! This shoe just might be my spring/summer staple!! It will go perfect with harem pants(sure to be making another appearance for spring and summer), boyfriend jeans, or high-waisted skirt! The looks are unlimited! Whatever you may choose to pair them with, you'll be looking good, girl!!!!!!!!!!!!
