SpringTIME Is Here

This springTIME, spice up your wardrobe with a hand-crafted, luxury wood Jord Watch. 

 

To be completely honest, I was never really a “watch girl” and I’m always running fashionably late, so it’s quite ironic for me to actually purchase a watch. But then I came across Jord Watches and instantly fell in love. The specific watch that caught my eye was the Frankie Ebony & Gold Watch.  An all black watch is a perfect accessory for me since black is a color that is a part of my everyday wardrobe. I also am not into big, flashy jewelry, so this Jord Watch fits my simple style.

 

Jord Watches are hand-crafted, luxury wood watches.  They make timepieces that are perfect for the modern lifestyle.  The watches are sustainable, efficient, and suitable to all occasions. Not only do they have a sleek and chic design, they are comfortable and durable.  Jord creates watches for men and women in numerous styles. Click here  to shop Jord watches.  These watches are perfect for graduation presents (you can even get a custom engraving, how cute is that!!), birthday’s, or for just simply treating yourself.

The latest trends this spring season include lots of florals, off the shoulder tops, ruffles, lace-up sandals, and floral embroidered jeans. A few trendy colors you’ll want to have in your closet this spring are pale pink and hues of blue. Here are some of my favorite styles that “Spring Brings”.

How to Find the Right Prom Dress for You

 

Finding the perfect Prom dress can be tricky. But if you know how to dress for your body type, finding the perfect dress becomes much easier! I was so lucky to work with these beautiful models and Z Couture to show some of latest Prom dress trends and silhouettes for 2017.

 

Here are some tips to finding the perfect dress for your body type:

(To find out where the dress is from, click on the picture)

If you are petite, try wearing a two piece dress. Not only would a two-piece accentuate your small figure, it would also elongate your torso, giving the effect of height. Both follow the traditional trend of a beaded bodice. On the right, the beige floral embroidered two piece follows the floral embroidery trend this season and adds beautiful accents to any dress.

If you are slender, try going for a more fitted dress. Find a dress that hugs your body and shows off your figure. The black beaded strapless neck with a sweetheart neckline and a leg slit is a part of the Scala Collection. The off the shoulder emerald green off the shoulder dress is a Spring 2017 Sherri Hill Dress. I am obsessed with the color of this dress. The jade beautifully complements her skin-tone and deep jewel tones offer a popping, chic twist to a prom dress. This beautiful dress also came in magenta and black.

 

If you are curvy, show off your figure with a mermaid dress. The blue dress featured on the left is a mermaid dress with an added belt to accentuate the smallest part of the waist. On the right is a Scala red sequined dress with a sweetheart neckline. A mermaid dress is the perfect way to accentuate your curves and balance out your proportions. While patterns and embellishments are very popular this year and offer a different approach to the classic style, a simply colored dress would streamline your look and appear thinner.

A great silhouette for any body type is a ballgown. Whether you’re tall, short, curvy, slender, a ball gown is flattering on all body types. The key to achieving the perfect ballgown for your body is in the alterations! A dress that is too long will look overbearing and a dress too short would appear ill-fitted.  A Sherri Hill  light pink ball gown with a plunging neckline is featured on the left. Light pink is a popular color this spring season, and I especially love the lace-work and pearl trim.  On the left, is also a sherri hill dress with a white plunging top and floral skirt  is featured. Floral patterns are going to be everywhere this season, and I love the way both dresses incorporate this trend.

Fresh off the Plane This was their “Fresh off the plane look,” as they called it. Wow, I sure wish I looked half as good as them after I got off of a plane. Sporting a boho look on the left, she rocks her printed wide leg pants, army green cargo jacket, and black fedora. Going for a more preppy look on the right, she wore a neutral poncho and added a pop of color with bright red skinny jeans.

Struttin’ on Soco On a girls night out, these three girls show off their love for denim and converse. Two of the girls wore light washed denim jean shorts with short sleeve tees. In the middle, she chose to wear a patterned romper with a vintage jean jacket.

Patch’in for Fashion Sporting an all black attire, he rocks his one of a kind denim jacket with an array of patches. I admired the way he owned his individual style. I was especially fond of his checkered slip on vans and black cap.

thumb_IMG_2158_1024.jpgFriends & Florals Checking out the local Austin boutiques, these three friends strut the streets in the latest floral trend. This spring, floral prints are going to be everywhere, and these ladies for sure know how to style floral prints.

thumb_IMG_2088_1024.jpgTrendsetting in a Tie This girl sure knows how to rock a bow tie and a pocket square. The two unlikely colors of sea-foam green and magenta, coordinate perfectly in her one of a kind outfit.

To the right, she rocks a full denim look with the addition of a graphic tee. thumb_IMG_2083_1024.jpgThe Heart Collectors After wrapping up a SXSW performance at the Toms store, I had the opportunity to meet The Heart Collectors. I was drawn to their unique style and warm personalities. Each of their outfits was perfectly styled with their unique accessories and bold prints. I was so lucky to have a chance to get to know such lovely people. Click Here for the link to their website to check their music out.
