season transition

Do you love this time of year, when there is hope that the warmer weather is coming?  I am getting spring fever really bad and the sunshine makes me want to shop for new summer fashions (and boy are there ALOT of awesome things out there and lots of color).  I am very pleased with the Etcetera, kikaPaprika and JHilburn lines.
Depending on where you live, this can be a challenging time of year knowing what to wear.  The mornings will start out cool, warm up during the day and bad to chilly at night.
Layering is the answer. 
I am wearing kika Paprika's Kelly jacket in navy, which as truly been a favorite piece. It is cut higher in the back and has two seams down the back for a very slimming affect.  I also like how in comes down to a point in the front and is a little longer than the back.  I can't tell you how many of these I have sold.  And for summer, wouldn't it be great for putting over a sleeveless top when going into a restaurant. (or black, comes in 12 colors)
I call myself the jean queen, when I am not working.  And, I love cowboy boots.  I can walk all day at the Mall of America in these boys, they are that comfortable.  What do your shopping shoes look like?
My western flare handbag and a handmade beaded necklace.  I have had the handbag for Years and can't part with it.

Pink with a Purpose!

How about some pink for a mood lifter?
I love the hue of this pink.
I am all gaga about the jacket I'm wearing.  But, how about the pink shorter jacket in the background?  I am telling you Etcetera rocked their Spring Season!  Are you going to miss out on fabulous fashions? 

 Detail~coming and going!
 I am always talking about the detail in the Etcetera clothing.  I hope from the last few blogs that you have gotten to see what I mean.  You certainly pay for what you get.  Detail, quality and clothing that gets attention.
Contact me for you appointment time.

Etcetera Dresses

Dresses, dresses and dresses!
Etcetera rocked their dresses this season!
I have been suggesting almost since the start of my Etcetera career that they drop their neckline on their dresses~They Did! 
This would be a nice mother of the bride dress.  Could be worn to the wedding or a fundraiser.  Beautiful detailing on this dress. 
This is a good photo to talk to you about dress and skirt length.  The most flattering length on anyone, is for your dress or skirt to hit right above your knee or right below.  If I were to purchase this dress, I would need to shorten it an inch or so.
My husband saw this outfit and said "Get It".  I guess he liked it!
I love the waistband and detail in this skirt.
He was in favor of this on!
And, this one!

And, I want this one too!
This is not the extent of the dresses.  Come see the rest.
Trunk show ends the evening of the 19th.
Which dress is your favorite?

Etcetera Sneak Peak

 The Etcetera Show was begun!
For those of you who have never been to an Etcetera Show because you thought the line was only very dressy.  Here is a few photos to show you some classy casual. 
 I really like this outfit.  The shorts have a little shimmer to them, which I think is really fun.  I would wear this outfit out to dinner this summer.
 The top is silky and flowy.  It would be cute untucked with a pair of skinner jeans and heels.  And, the clutch is for sale!  Clutches are the "in" thing right now.

 Above~I have the same shorts on but with a very detailed white jacket.  I would wear the jacket with about anything.  The jacket I have on is like a size 14, so I couldn't give you a true fitted photo.

 These are not my favorite photos, as all my pictures are not retouched.
The jacket was a size 14 and the shorts are a size 2.  So, not the best fit.  The jacket would look great paired back with a black pair of pants or a skirt.
 A close up so that you can appreciate the detail in every Etcetera piece.
This piece will be an attention getter.

 OK, love this piece!  The black jacket in so fun~A little rocker chic!
I would wear this piece with jeans and my Harley boots or a pair of pumps.
It's not to late to schedule your Etcetera appointment.
