Kate' dress

My sister Kate is turning 21 next week. So she asked me to design her a dress. Her criteria was off the shoulder, waterfall hem, turquoise, and lace. This is the sketch. More to come...

Fun Floral Pants

Floral pants are hot this spring/summer, but you may be wondering if it is a trend you can pull off.  Of course it is. I prefer the fitted, (not too tight) full length or cropped version in a darker color.

A few tips:

Keep it simple on top.
If you have a curvy bottom half wear a darker color and use sparkling earrings to draw attention up (it's all about balance).
Those of you with narrow hips, you can pull off a lighter color.
Wear neutral colored heals to elongate your legs.
