Trendy Tank Tops

Looking for tops for the summer?  Looking for variety? Tank tops come in many varieties, not just the basic fitted style.  Whether you want to look sporty, dressed up, whether you're going to the amusement park, work, or to dinner, you can find a fabulous tank that will fit the event.

Appealing Pants for Fun in the Sun

Pants for spring and summer come in quite a few styles: capris, jogger, harem, wide leg, straight leg, etc.  Print fabrics for pants are noticeably popular and a wonderful option. Women have a lot of choices with pants this year. My favorite are the jogger and harem pants.  Love the loose and comfortable fit which will fit in perfectly with some of the places I hope to visit this season.

Sophisticated Sunday Suits

Such a difference between ladies' suits for the office and ladies' suits for church.  I love looking at the stylish and colorful suits for church attending ladies.  If you can think of a suitable silhouette and find a fantastic bright solid color or print fabric, you're good to go.  The matching hats are incredible and must take a lot of time to create.  
Just wondering... are there hat competitions?

Does anyone remember the evening soap opera Dynasty?  Well, the aqua and white suit reminds me of that program.    Just for fun, which suit above do you think I'd wear?

Spring Splendour

Spring is here, somewhat.  The beginning of April has been colder than usual (in Toronto, ON at least.  How's warm/cold is your location?) but let's look forward to what we could be wearing once the warm temperatures decide to visit us.  

These clothing designs give strong spring vibes.  The bright colors, flowery prints, and silhouettes can't help but make you smile and feel the soon coming warmth.

Recycle the Fashionable Way

Plastic bags have a few uses.  One of which is to make clothing. Now, these plastic garments, most likely, are made for artistic reasons, unless the plastic has been mixed with materials that allow air to circulate.  But I'm sure 100% plastic clothes can be worn in cold weather, or for a short period of time during warm weather.  Now you know what else you can use those plastic bags for.
