Tighten Up

The transition into Spring......it might take a while, and it is still a bit chilly even in Southern California.  So many of you ladies are ready for shorts and mini skirts....well wear away sweet ladies.  Smack on a pair of fun tights with that mini and a blazer.  


Some of my fav places to seek these transition treasures: Wolford and American Apparel.  Keep the sheer tight within arms reach come early Spring though.  That sneaky stripe down the center back of your leg is so sexy and will help with the warmth on Spring nights.

The One

Take it from me, there isn't an espadrille as veritable and flattering on everyone like this one. I have been around {shopping that it}, and believe you me....this is THE wedge to own. I know, it's a staggering $495, but take it from me, you'll wear it every S/S till the end of your life.

Sports Page: Neoprene

I doubt the scientists that invented this stretchy blend in the 30's ever suspected their "baby" would end up on the runways of Versace, Derek Lam and Preen.  It's so easy to understand why so many designers used it this Resort season: its incredibly forgiving and easy to cut and sew.  And, if your shameless when it comes to caring for your frocks, fear not the dry cleaner bill.  Instead, throw it in the wash and let it air dry {your neighbors will admire your style while they are clipped to the laundry line}.  True to wetsuit fashion, the details on these garments have to be sporty with the plastic zippers and colored panels.  Beware southern dwellers, this fabric does NOT breathe {its how the surfers stay warm in the Winter waters after all}.
Check out some of my favorite, less expensive Neoprene pieces found at Asos, Topshop, and Cynthia Rowley for Roxy.  Not a fan of the tight fit?  Move on to a different sport. Like, parachuting.
