Spring is here and with it comes a slew of trends to keep your fashion binging in full swing. One of the major trends this season is bohemian glamour.

Beat the Heat - Corporate Cool - Apr 7, 2011 - 12:32:17 PM
It’s just April and it’s almost impossible to beat the heat. If the thought of reaching for your business suit makes you break out in a sweat, then read on.

Style Guide: Inverted Triangle Body Shape - Mar 23, 2011 - 11:17:08 PM

I was doing some personal shopping for a client this weekend who was looking for a few new dresses for the spring season. After three kids, her body had changed dramatically and her smaller bust and fuller hips had given way to a broader upper body and narrower hips and thighs.

You also tend to be narrower at the waist and your hips, thighs and lower legs are smaller than your upper torso...
