It is still definitely winter here, but believe it or not spring is fast approaching.  The season officially starts on March 20th, but hopefully it will start feeling like spring even sooner than that!  So make sure your clothing reflects the change of seasons by embracing some of the new trends this spring.

What’s In This Spring?

1. Crocheted Accents/Antique Lace on flyaway jackets, tops and accessories.  The natural appeal of crochet/lace makes garments adorable with a touch of vintage.
