Cherimoya Blouse

Stripes and ruffles were up and down the runways in New York and this is a great way to take runway to reality. Flattering easy soft stripes with a feminine essence.

Artisan Coat

Spring brings April showers and May flowers, so be prepared to sport a versatile jacket that works in sunshine and rain. This coat screams high end, but the price tag whispers a steal!

Semantiks ‘Wallpaper’ Skirt

Home décor meets clothing, the best pairing since Sonny & Cher if you ask me. This sexy wallpaper printed pencil skirt is under $100 and is indeed over the top delicious!

Jessica Simpson Women’s Delanco Sandal

Remember Huaraches? The Mexican classic sandal has stepped up with a little more style appeal in this stacked heel shoe with the easy affordable price. A great way to sport a feel-good global safari chic look without using your frequent flyer miles.

Paul & Joe Sister Berceuse Tunic Dress

Why not be trendy and take a staycation, bringing the islands to your backyard with this ocean blue dress. Perfect for spring excursions.

$172 at tobi.com


Windflower Necklace

My fave statement necklace is magnificent, but my neck feels like it has been doing hours of cardio because of the weight. This one is nice and light for spring, while still making a bold statement (and giving my neck a break!)

$38 at anthropologie.com


SR SQUARED by Sondra Roberts Neon Bow Clutch

Before I say anything about the magnificent ’80s tiki punch color, or the perfect day-to-night dimensions on this clutch, take note that it costs only $35! I know a bargain when I see one, and every cat, dog, woman and child should own one of these!

$35 at endless.com


Aqua Long Chiffon One Shoulder Dress

No, I’m not getting married yet, but if you are, this is a great option. For the rest of us smiling single gals, it’s time for romance in the wardrobe. I always need a dream dress to make an entrance in and drop dead style is hard to find for under $300. Plus, this dress makes me feel like Lady O (our very own Michelle Obama, of course!)

$248 at bloomingdales.com


Thin Floral Headband

I have always loved fashion, so much so that when I was a teen, I designed and sold hair accessories! This floral headband makes me reminisce on my budding fashionista DIY days; it just brings instant style to any look thirsting for a boost.

Barbie Loves Stila Paint Can – 1971 Malibu Doll

My favorite dream girl celebrated her 50th Bday this year, and I want to celebrate her all spring with this paintbox of pleasure. I love a nice fresh face for Spring, and this Malibu ’70s era combo includes everything you need. Use items individually, or pair one or two products for a full look. It’s super recessionista/beauty babe friendly!
