Hello Chicklets! Good morning from cloudy Houston, Texas. Today is a fabulous day in fashion and beauty and of course I am bringing you another fabulous fashion and beauty trend straight off the runway.
Of course the color scheme is very French Provence and you know how I feel about southern France. And of course I threw a little pop of color to go along with it of course cuz its my style and color pop is very popular this spring. This blue and white striped dress from Mango is the perfect silhouette for all body types since the belt cinches you at smallest part of your waist creating a faux hour glass silhouette. The Urban Expression bag is a vegan bag made from faux leather material for all of those animal and earth lovers. Flats for day time and heels for night.

2. Baker's Shoes Kay Platform Sandals
3. Aldo's Shoes Snowdy Ballerina Flat
4. Urban Expressions Convertible Kate Bag
5. Aldo's Hariworth Cocktail Ring
6. Nordstrom Sequin 'Brights' Small Enamel Bangles
If you want to add a bit of print to the ensemble try using a scarf and tying it in a turban fashion. This style has been seen all over the runways and in fashion mags the world over and it is very chic! Try this scarf from Fashion Scarves and Shawls.
And here is a tutorial on how to tie that gorgeous scarf.
For makeup, a very popular trend in makeup at the moment is a double winged eye liner. Once I get settled I will do a tutorial on how to do it. I saw this trend in my Vogue Paris mag that I was reading on my long flight from Italy.
and this pic.
Even Mac Cosmetics was ahead of the curve last summer with this trend with their To The Beach Collection (the model on the right)
