SPRING is in the Air

Be gone! I say to winter! Right now we are all about all things floral, and flowers mean spring! Forget the chilly weather and turn your attention to something brighter and cheery. Ted Baker delivered an intriguing floral print fit and flare dress that we are all in love with. What I'm drawn to is the addition of black at the straps and waist, not only visually creating the illusion of a perfect hourglass but also such a high contrast that it becomes very striking and modern. With that little detail, we've seen how this can be worn with strappy sandals as a day dress, or with black stilettos for evening.

A closer look at the print shows you that it's an artists rendering of flowers swirling through in creative, paintbrush-like strokes.  We paired antique gold to compliment the warmer tones and the rose gold buckles on the straps- but gunmetal would also be a stunning choice. 

Pink gemstones on these rose gold earrings pair so well with all our new spring dresses that we actually had to make a conscious effort to change them while styling for this blog! They really could have just been used over and over, not only for their totally appropriate color, but also because of their small shape yet unique detailed craftsmanship. Each row of stones is on tiny hinges rather than a solid base, so you get just the smallest amount of movement, for maximum sparkle!

To illustrate the wearability of this dress: day, evening, ... fall? Yes! We added an Herve shrug to create a stunning colder weather ensemble to be perfectly completed with tights and booties for a fabulous finish! Just look at how the black emphasizes the contrast and ties really well with the black waist.

Crafted from vivacious pink fabric with an accentuating fit and flare cut, the dress features matching straps with metallic adornments and waist-cinching tailoring. Using neoprene fabric, the dress has enough weight to give it the perfect shape, but also travels worry free! Finally a dress that stays wrinkle free and doesn't make you curse with frustration when you get out of the car! We love to style these little fare dresses with denim shirts tied at the waist to create a weekend chic look which would be perfect for a fabulous mimosa brunch!

There's no arguing with Ted Baker’s elegant sense of style, especially when it comes to this midi length dress. Crafted with a round neck bodice and a silken pleated skirt, this dress is beautifully printed with a Ted's bold Stencilled Stem design.

Try a modern take on a retro floral print with the addition of black and white contrast.  This clean white base lends a fresh touch to the oversized pink blooms. What I love about the blown-up placements is how the vivid color pop helps create shape to the otherwise drape style dress. This is one I continue to pull out for customers who pass it by because it doesn't have much "hanger appeal" but once you get it on it's dead sexy! Thank the short hem, which allows you to show some leg, but I also like the black band at the collar which really frames the face but also pulls out the black in the print.

True to Troubadour signature style, the rear view of this dress does not disappoint! With a gorgeous and flattering flared back panel, it creates a flirty style that's both unique and smart. The black section conceals unwanted attention to the area but has a slimming effect as well. We know our clients, don't we? :) #liberteloves ! 

Our sales floor is filling up with pinks and a playful attitude emerges for spring, as florals are amplified with a big, bold intensity to catch the eye with vibrant colors and oversized proportions. This trend adds a striking statement to our fun spring dresses! If you're looking for a cap sleeve and a full skirt - you'll love this flirty little number from Troubadour. 

Sometimes you just have to embrace the femininity of an article of clothing and go with it. I love pairing pearls with this dress because it so matches the theme. Just promise me you won't forget to accessorize! Every outfit deserves it - it's one thing you should never consider skipping.  Be it a belt, jewelry or statement shoes. Make sure you finish your outfit before walking out the door... I say that but I admit I'm guilty of this sometimes. I keep a small velvet pouch in my purse with three sets of earrings and a dainty bracelet. This is my emergency accessory kit and in my opinion every girl needs one! #stylesecret
