Trending: Raincoats!

20140409-083329.jpg
A raincoat or slicker is a must in everyone’s closet (especially this month where it calls for showers☔️on most days). It’s THE perfect item for April showers.

How so? Well…
1- It’s water-resistant or waterproof so it protects the body from rain.
2- It’s normally made of Gore-Tex or Tyvek and coated nylons which are breathable fabrics.
3- It comes in so many different colors, shapes and sizes, you’ll have lots of options to choose from.

I usually stick to neutral colors but that’s only because I love to add a pop of color via accessories like an umbrella or wellies.

Here are some of my faves…

Trending: Aztec!

Aztec clothing was worn by the tribes that made up the Aztec empire (Aztecs and pre-Columbian people of central Mexico with similar cultures).

Today, the Aztec pattern is used in all things fashion…see for yourself!

Get graphic!

This fall, I’ve been loving the graphic pullovers, sweaters and tees. It’s a great way to express yourself through fashion.
Here are some of my “graphic” looks:

I just had to spread a bit of “LOVE”; bring out my inner “Parisian” in “Très Chic”, give a shout out to a few fashionable places like “London, Paris, New York” and need I say more with “Céline Paris”. 💋

These fashionistas are rocking this trend to perfection. They are definitely expressing their unique style and are doing so with lots of “FABness”.
I mean, see for yourself:
