Spring Ahead...Finally!

Despite the continued cold temperature, my spirit is still blooming looking at all the fabulous, fresh fashion at Richards in Greenwich.  This month, I will celebrate my 14th anniversary as their Personal Shopper, working exclusively by appointment clients who prefer complete one-on-one attention. 

To all my lovely, loyal clients and friends who have been with me for nearly 20 years in Greenwich, I think you know, you mean the world to me, and I have enjoyed every moment of assisting you and your families with seasonal wardrobes and milestone occasions. 

Here's to many more...and of course, I always enjoy meeting new clients so if you have always thought you would like to work with a Personal Shopper or Stylist, call me! The beauty of having a relationship, is trust. It is my solemn mission to only sell you what fits you and your lifestyle and flatters you perfectly. (203-622-0551203-622-0551). Why would we do less?

Before each season everyone always asks me what are the major trends of the season? 
It's always amazing how key colors and ideas find their way into every important collection. Here is how Spring 2014 took shape:

Go Global 
Designers the world over created dresses and ready-to-wear with ethnic prints in rich, saturated hues:

The Row

Peter Pilotto

Oxford Bound
The allure of cool crisp shirting, showed up in many designers collections in dresses, over slim pants and pencil skirts:

Brunello Cucinelli
Giorgio Armani


Pop Art
Echos of Roy Lichenstein, Peter Beard, Frank Stella and Jean Miro could be found in designers collections.  Bright pops of color were woven onto knits and printed onto silks, with photo prints also popular:
Akris Punto

Alexander McQueen

Phillip Lim

Flower Power
Lush blooms were featured prominently adding a dreamy feminine glam to many collections reminiscent of exotic locations:

Giorgio Armani

Dolce and Gabbana

Stella McCartney coat

Fringe Benefits

Designers took a trip down Memory Lane, embracing fringe on ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes, creating a haute Hippie vibe:



Green with Envy

Emerald green was Pantone's color of 2013, so all shades of green radiated into Spring collections as they were created this past Fall.  (For those who are curious, "Radiant Orchid" is their color for 2014.

What else is having a moment?

Metallics, woww Sport chic inspired by track suits so look for side stripe details and draw strings on pants, baseball jackets and perforated leathers.

It's been an endless Winter, but I can't think of a better way to sweep the doldrums away then treating yourself to a new frock or three.

Cheers to Spring...
