Stripes in Fashion

When fashion finds something that works for everyone, the trend tends to stay around and this year stripes have gone from fall, to spring and now summer. I am loving how the chic, laid back style of stripes can work for just about any occasion. Check out this Alexander McQueen striped dress, made famous by the ever stylish Rihanna.

If you don’t have this dress in your closet {its sold out} try this Splendid Slub Shadow Stripe Waist Tie Top in navy/red combo. {It’s shown here in green/red} It would be a great piece for spring and summer and could easily be worn with shorts, capris, or leggings.

Another great look for summer is black and white small stripes. Seen here on Sienna Miller is a Chanel version of this trend.

I feel like my closet just has too much Chanel in it, {you probably feel the same way right??} so I have opted for this more understated Laurie B. Gable Stripe Cardigan. I love the zipper detail and the wide sleeves are ultra flattering.

If you haven’t tried stripes, now is the time! They are oh so chic and are so adaptable to most any look. Have a fabulous weekend!

Fashion Trend: Charm Necklaces

All fall and winter your neck was covered with adorable scarfs or turtlenecks.  Now that it’s springtime, it is time to decorate your neck with a little bling vintage style.  Double strand necklaces are the perfect fashion statement for you neck- especially with a boat-neck style top.  To go purely vintage check out Chanel’s clear crystal sautoir.

While this vintage piece is exquisite some of us may not have the $1,495 dollars to spend.  If that is the case maybe you will like my interpretation of this necklace.  Retailing for a very reasonable $30 dollars.

Jewelry Designer Rosanne Follman's Double Strand Charm Necklace

Jewelry Designer Rosanne Follman's Double Strand Charm Necklace

Vintage Fringe exclusively is selling  jewelry designer Rosanne Follman’s double strand charm necklace. I love the use of soft green mother of pearl shells along with silver charms to create a beautiful vintage inspired, but very fashion forward piece.  The length of this necklace is 24 inches, it is a  copper chai with a toggle clasp.

I would pair this necklace with Velvet’s Daree Wide Sleeve Boatneck Top in Milk (ivory)

I think the mother of pearl green shells with silver would pair perfectly this with boatneck top designed by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  What do you think? What would you pair this necklace with?

Bag Trend: Cross Body

In case you haven’t noticed, cross body bags have been all the rage in fashion accessories as of late. Everything from solid, patterned, textured, sparkly, embellished and plain is available.Celebrities love this look for the same reason I love this look, it is chic and totally frees up your hands to carry children, groceries, shopping bags{full of shoes right!} or whatevver the case may be. Busy mom on the go Reese Witherspoon shows us a basic bag looking chic.

For this summer, I am totally into bright colors and a pop of color in abag is the perfect place if you are scared to do too much color. I am a busy mom, so I am always looking for bags that can hold a bit more stuff then just chap stick and my iPhone and that is why I like the MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Braided Grommet – Mini’ Crossbody Bag. Nice and roomy for a crossbody bag and I love the yellow color.

I love the super soft leather, all the extra details and the totally functional pockets that are on th outside and in of the Shy Coquette Bag. The understated gray color is a great neutral that will complement any outfit.

Whether your style be bright or neutral or something in between,if you haven’t already, try a cross body bag this summer. So tell me, are you loving the cross body bags or not so much??

Finding Fashion at the Beach

Don’t worry I am not talking about swimsuits just yet {prepare yourselves, the time is coming soon} but rather the cute things we wear on top of swimsuits. Since it isn’t quite full blown summer just yet any swim outing will probably require some sort of cover up and depending on the type of gal you are you might always require a swim cover up so lets look at some fashionable, versatile, and comfortable options.

Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress

Ok, first we have the full coverage of a maxi dress, which is super flattering for most body types. I love this Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress because it is casual enough for the beach yet elegant enough for a night out. I love pieces that can work for lots of occasions and this dress surly does that. Imagine it with aviator sunglasses,  beaded gladiator sandals and a bright yellow bag-cute!

Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress

If you want something that shows a little more leg, try this ultra cute Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress. Again the empire waist is a flattering cut that hides imperfections, and can easily transition from beach to going out. This dress can completely change looks with different accessories. 

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

For those of you that are daring enough to show a  bit more leg, I love this Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top, perfect for throwing on over white jeans right after a fun day at the beach. The bold black and white print is classy yet youthful.

So what is your cover up style? Less is more? Or more is more?

Athletic Wear to Inspire

Now that summer is really getting close it is time to get serious about our fitness routines ladies! I for one am always more motivated when I have something cute and fashionable to put on for my workouts, starting with super comfortable and functional shoes. Workout and running shoes have really come a long way in the past decade and we have so many more options available, clearly too many to discuss, but I will highlight a few that would be great for getting in shape this spring. 

Nike 'Shox Qualify+ LAF' Running Shoe

Nike 'Shox Qualify+ LAF' Running Shoe

I love the color combo of this Nike Shox Qualify + LAF Running Shoe, and it is a bonus that the yellow is supporting those living with cancer. This is a lightweight, easy to wear running shoe that will for sure put a smile to your face and hopefully want to make you go outside and be active.{or just go get in a hard gym session!}

Onitsuka Tiger™ 'Ultimate '81™' Sneaker

Onitsuka Tiger™ 'Ultimate '81™' Sneaker

Ok, these shoes are just too cute, I love the colors, and I love the retro vibe of the styling as well. The Onituka Tiger Ultimate ’81 is a reproduction of the original shoes that came out it, you guessed it 1981. These shoes would be great for most any active activity and are so cheery and fun.

FitFlop 'Fiorella' Sandal

FitFlop 'Fiorella' Sandal

If you are less into hard core sweat sessions and more into walks, the FitFlop ‘Fiorella’ Sandal would be perfect for spring and summer strolls. I love the added fringe of the flowers which makes these sandals easily go from brisk walk at the park to lunch date with the ladies.  Whatever your style, a active life is a healthy life so find something you enjoy and go out there and sweat! {and be cute while you do it!}

Fashionable Tank Tops

The sun is shinning and tank tops are out in full force. Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably notices how many a celebrity have been showing some very toned arms lately. Buff or toned arms are the thing right now and to show off all that hard work tank tops are everywhere. First, lets get a little arm inspiration and then I will show you some darling tanks to showcase your own arms! Jessica Biel showing off her fabulous arms.

 I am loving the berry color and ruffle detail{which is super hot right now} of this Sweet Pea by Staci Frati 4 Tiered Ruffle Tank. It is a very versatile top, which as you know I am all about anything that goes easily from errand running to date night.

If you are looking for a very casual, very typical California style, check out this Kelisha Long Tank Top by Velvet. Yes, it is very basic, but the extra length makes it perfect with skinny jeans and think of the accessorizing possibilities. Gladiator sandals, and over sized hobo bag and  long necklace would be oh so chic!

What Makes a Dress Perfect for Spring??

Like the flowers and buds in my front yard Spring Dresses are in bloom everywhere.  But as I sort my closet this spring I decided to create some criteria for what exactly qualifies a dress to be perfect for Spring.

First Fabric:  Spring is light and airy not thick and structured so the perfect spring dress needs to be a light fabric.  A great example of a lush fabric for spring is Splendid’s Modal Jersey V-Neck Dress.

Modal Jersey V Neck Dress from Splendid

This adorable dress can always be paired with leggings on the colder days, but it is a perfect choice for the spring dress.  I especially love the sleeves on this dress they are long and whimsical.

The second criteria for the perfect spring dress is color, I am particular to the pinks and greens for spring time this year.

Aggie B Neck Ruffle Dress

Aggie B Neck Ruffle Dress

While I love this Aggie V Neck Ruffle Dress dress for any season I think the emerald green is especially hot this spring.  The sleeveless detail also makes it a great spring or summer dress.  Also good to mention Ella Moss designed this dress with enough attention to detail you’ll never have to worry the dress is fully lined and hits just above the knee.

The final critieria I came up with for the perfect summer dress was the sleeves: short sleeved or sleeveless both scream spring to me.

Blair Widesleeve Dress from Ella Moss

Blair Widesleeve Dress from Ella Moss

This Ella Moss designer dress has widesleeved cap sleeves with a crew neck detail.  I love love love the pleats by the sleeves and the keyhole neckline.  While the model is wearing this dress in the admiral (navy) and White combo Ella Moss also designed it  in Lemonade (yellow) with Grey contrast.

Find these adorable dresses and many more perfect for Spring at Vintage Fringe!!

Accessory Obsession: White Watches

When fashion gets ready for spring and summer, white is always on the scene and this year a big trend is a white watch. Think of these watches not only as super useful tools to help keep you on top of that busy schedule, but also a cute accessory. Big, bold watches also make your wrists and arms look thinner because they are oversized, you look undersized. And lets be honest, who doesn’t want to look undersized?? I have always liked Michael Kors accessories and he doesn’t dissapoint with his line of watches for spring and summer, check out this beauty the Ladies’ Chronograph Resin Band Watch.

If you are wanting something a bit more whimsical and girly, try the Badgley Mischka Bow Watch. The oversized bow is such a cute detail and will surely help you stay on track because it is so fun to look at!

For those of you that just can’t handle the plain white, check out this Zodiac ‘Baby Desert Falcon’ Rubber Strap Watch. I love the faux-tortoiseshell topring, so cute and super classy.

The best part is that all of these gorgeous watches will go with everything in your closet! They help keep you on schedule, add some chic detail to your outfits, and the oversized variety make you look smaller. What’s not to love there? Enjoy all the white this summer and sport some on your wrist!
