Spring Styling!

While some of you out there are freezing, New Orleans has warmed up. The weather is perfect right now and its already starting to feel like Spring. It just so happens that this time around, I got to style the displays at work and I chose some fun, bright looks to get everyone’s minds off the chilly Winter. (Pardon the cell phone photos!)

I did these three with V-Day and Spring in mind, which sometimes don’t really go hand in hand.

The first outfit features high-waisted lace shorts, a salmon pink long sleeve henley and vintage suede vest with fringe for a bright and edgy look.

The second is classically modern vintage, a long paisley dress, vintage pearls, and a mint green belt at the waist.

The third is girly and adorable; I chose a crisp white shirt with a cute Peter Pan collar, draped floral shrug, a bright pink pencil skirt and a cute bird pendant.

For this outfit I wanted simple, cute, 90’s. I used all vintage pieces circa the 1990’s. (Which probably makes it easier? Maybe the challenge would have been to use modern pieces?)

Good or Bad: Velvet and Clogs

(I’ve noticed that the ShopStyle widget isn’t working, I’m trying to fix it. But if you’re interested in viewing the items and my other looks, I’m MegFaye on shopstyle.com!)

Velvet has been a big trend this fall, in part with the 90’s making a comeback. I love the return of plaid, combat boots, looser fits and higher waists but I just can’t get behind clogs and velvet. I had a pair of Candys clogs back in the 90’s, they were brown slip-in clogs with a heel. I loved them; I wore them as often as I could and they were the first shoe I had with any sort of heel. But not even the nostalgia can make me like them again. I mean, I loved scrunchies in the 90’s too, but I will most definitely not be seen with giant bunched up fabric wrapped around my hair.

But I digress, what about you guys? Clogs and Velvet: yes or no?

(I do somewhat like the clog boots, like the Jeffrey Campbell ones below)
