I haven't blogged in a while, but now I'll be making a post every Saturday! Yay! The best day of the week! So, of course, since I haven't been able to share my most favorite new trend, I thought I'd showcase my recent fav...

Photobucket

I just love, love, love this concept! A sweet scallop, mixed with a lot of leg, throw in a high waist...& there you go! Sweet, sexy, and trend-setting! You can make these pieces as dressy or as casual as you want. For a casual look, tuck in a tank, throw a striped cardigan on over it & a pair of gladiator sandles! You can even make a semi-formal look with the black ones...just tuck in a pretty silk top, lots a pearls, & stunning shoes...there you go!


Let's see how the A-List celebs style their scallops...

And for a more casual approach...

I love them all! Check out our scalloped shorts (& you will love the price)!

Do it Yourself: Recycle & Recreate Cork Wedges

Photobucket


Last night I was packing for Miami and going through all the shoes I want to take and came across my most comfortable shoes. When I looked at them I couldn't help but make a face of disgust because the cork wedge was torn & worn. I knew I could never wear them again because they were not presentable but I hated to see them go because they were my go-to shoes. I knew it would look worse if I tried to get paint or a sharpie the same color to fill in the spots that were messed up.

If I was going to throw them away, I had nothing left to loose by trying to give them a fresh paint job. Sooo, I choose to give it a go and paint the wedges gold. I used a little bottle of regular acrylic paint that you can get for about a $1 at craft stores. It was fast and easy and now they are fresh and new! I am not sure if I am happy with the exact gold color. I may go buy a different gold to use overtop with less bronze. But I am pleased that I was able to restore my favorite wedges! You should try this too!

Spring 2011 Color Trends

With 2011's fashion trends on the horizon, it is time to look forward to this season's color trends that many designers and labels are using to shape their collection. This year's colors were chosen to give an "uplifting" and "soften, energize, and excite" mentality due to the recent financially tough times. The new spring colors are mostly named after flowers which include: iris, viola, daffodil, poppy, and geranium.

Photobucket
You can see some of our newest dresses (below) have colors taken straight from the Spring palette. We are always keeping you up-to-date with the hottest trends!

Judith March Spring & Summer Preview


Photobucket

Ok, so here's the deal...
Judith March came out with a new style dress that gives you limitless options. You will see below several different patterns & colors they have in the dress. Each dress comes with the neck piece shown on the orange dress. You can then purchase other neck pieces to make the dress look completely different. This way you can wear the same dress with different neck pieces at the beach, to a wedding, carolina cup, or anywhere else you can imagine! But it doesn't stop there...they also have a wooden beaded neck piece that you can change out the flower attached to it OR you can wear it as a necklace or bracelet. Pretty exciting huh?

(This is the basic neck piece that will come with each dress.)

This is one of our favorite dresses. I love the colors because it looks great on dark or fair skin and with light or dark hair.

Photobucket
They now have shorts! The length is perfect and the details on the back pockets are to die for! They carry these in 3 different patterns. We are sure to get these in!

Atlanta Market

Hello everyone!
Hope you are having a great Monday morning! I know I am having a busy one! Siobhan, Missy, and I were at the Atlanta Market this past weekend. We saw so many great lines, & amazing clothes! I wanted to share a different line each day with you to let you see what you can expect this spring & summer. Let me know what you think, what you like, and dislike. Every time I go to market, my friends always ask what it is like & where it is held & are always curious about it so I thought today I would show you where it is held.

Photobucket
This is the center of the main floor where they have fashion shows throughout the day to preview the upcoming trends. Judith March sponsored the fashion show this year and showed off tons of new styles that we will be showing you tomorrow!

Photobucket
Each floor has showrooms all the way around so you can only imagine how fast pace we must be in order to see everything we want to see!

Photobucket
Here are some models dressed and ready in Judith March for the fashion show.

And that is market!
Continue to come back each day this week to see a new line! Tomorrow I will be showing off Judith March's new styles of dresses that you won't want to miss! You will be so excited!
