Flip Floppin'

Time to break out the flip flops. Havaianas, the brand dubbed the most comfortable flip flop ever, is offering a new style this season. It is called the Fit and features an ankle strap so that stays on a little more securely. Cute, comfortable sandals that are easy to move in? Sounds pretty good to me! We have them in black and a shimmery light gold color. Perfect for most any summer dress. Check them out below.

Tips for Wearing Your Maxi Dress

One of the hottest new trends of spring and summer ’09 is the Maxi dress; although it’s super cute the Maxi can sometimes swallow you up. Here are some tips on how to wear the maxi dress right.
Tie Dye Maxi Dress by Jaloux $88
  •  The maxi dress makes a loud statement to begin with, so try not to over accessorize. A few simple pieces of Jewelry, and even a headband is definitely enough for this dress.
  • Because the Maxi dress has such a spring and summer look to it you should stay away from closed toed shoes, instead stick to a basic pair of cute flip flops, some gladiator sandals, espadrilles, high-heeled sandals or a comfortable pair of wedges. No matter what shoes you wear make sure your Maxi dress is not dragging on the ground.
  • If you are Petite you can still work the Maxi dress! Some simple things to look for if you are petite: Try to find a more form fitting Maxi dress, one that is simple and does not have a lot of ruffles and extra flowing materials. A dress that accentuates your waist will provide you with a longer leaner look.

Trend We Love: Assymetrical Tops

Ready to bear some skin? Try this season's must have style: assymetrical tops and dresses. Two parts drama and one part understated sex appeal, this style is not for the faint of heart. It was seen all over Hollywood during awards season. Two of our favorite assymetrical pieces in the store right now are this jersey cape dress,$76, and one-shoulder cotton poplin ruffle top, $58. They are both by the new line Blaque Label. Both make an equally bold statement and can be paired with simple pieces to create a sensational outfit.

Like the idea, but looking for a more tame style? Try one of these cotton tops from LaMixx. At just $36, they are both stylish and affordable for everyday wear.

Picking Patterns for Spring

Whether it’s floral, polka dots, or geometric shapes, bold prints are on everything from accessories to clothing for spring 2009 collections. Don’t be afraid to make a loud statement this season with a patterned ensemble.

Join the trend by introducing a patterned dress into your wardrobe. Invest in a staple piece that can be worn to several occasions throughout the spring and summer. From weddings to picnics in the park, a patterned dress can be transformed to suit several occasions.

Try choosing neutral accessories to either dress up or dress down your outfit. Add gold bangles, a neutral colored clutch and pair of heels for an evening out. For a more relaxed look, try wood bangles, a vintage purse and sandals.
