Dear readers, fashionistas and lovers of all things French & European,
We find ourselves again with a new year ahead of us. Endless opportunities, wonderful times with friends & family and hopefully the blessing of meeting new people from all over the globe!
My baby is almost 14 months old. Amazing how fast last year went dealing with a little person almost 24/7! One of my goals this year is to get back into the full swing of business! This mama is ready to work, work, work and introduce women to the best fashion for them… depending on their lifestyle, body shape and coloring. If you know anyone in Southern California who would benefit from personal time with a stylist and image consultant, I appreciate your referrals more than you will ever know!
Besides my goal to meet new people this year, I will be creating a Facebook page for
A Rendez-Vous with Style before April. I also have a TOP SECRET styling service that I will be launching later in the year! More to come on that in the next few months so please stay tuned!…
What goals do you have for this year? Dreams? Wishes?
My goal & dream is for our little family to journey to Europe this summer and create wonderful memories with our little angel since last time I was there (summer of 2009) she was growing in my belly. I will definitely not have the excuse “hey, I can eat however much I want b/c I’m pregnant” this time… but let’s not fool ourselves… I will certainly be indulging!
OK, let’s take a quick dive into fashion trends for Spring 2011. I will go into more detail for you over the next 4-6 weeks.
Fashion Trends Spring 2011:
- Color Blocking
- Feminine Suiting
- Transparency & Sheer Layers
- Minimalist Chic:
Choose a classic cut dress in one of the hottest desert colors for Spring! Rust, sienna and sand.
- Military-esque Jacket:
You know you have something similar in your closet that would work! Even a jacket, take it to your tailor and have them take the arms off! Viola… a military inspired vest!
- High waisted flare jeans:
Put your skinny jeans away for the season and say hello to these beauties! Pair this style of pant with a chunky heel… no flats unless you are over 5’10″!
- Mixing prints:
We’ve seen this for the past few seasons. If you are daring and try it… I still encourage you to edit, edit, edit. If mixing 2 or 3 prints keep accessories to a minimum!
“Part platform, part wedge and a whole lotta awesomeness, these are the comfiest cool-girl shoes we’ve seen in years. Your feet will thank you for giving them a break from painful pointy stilettos, while your wing-women friends will be happy that it’s easy to spot a much taller you in a crowded room.”
Michael Kors, spring 2011
- The Trench Dress:
This is a trench coat and sheath dress wrapped in one. Depending on cut and fit… this could be a new MUST HAVE, staple in every woman’s wardrobe.
Comfy & Pulled Together:
absolutely must wear heals with this look
