2013 Spring Fashion Trend

Spring has definitely arrived! I do not know about you but I am seriously ready to turn my attention away from classic wintery pieces on to brighter pieces that will work now and as the temperature begins to rise. Here are a some of the season's biggest trends to buy and try.

Pastel: Make sorbet shades work for the cooler months by stocking up on lighter sweaters and skinny jeans in this versatile color palette. Don't shy away from sleeveless tops or skirts, though-layer them or pair with black tights now. Later, they'll fit into your warm weather wardrobe easily.

Lace: This feminine fabric is big for spring! Look for dresses, tops, skirts, and accessories in any color palette.  They'll add some elegant sophistication to your current rotation and keep the feeling going well into the summer months.

Stripes: Horizontal and vertical lines had a big presence throughout this Spring's 2013 collections.  Start integrating the graphic pieces into outfits now so you will feel ahead of the curve come May.

Floral: Pretty blooms are naturally associated with sunshine and warm breezes.  Wear the colorful prints with other poppy hues now and in a few month's time.

So, now that you are in "the know" about this season's hottest fashions, GO SHOPPING, and remember you look FABULOUS!

My true love gave to me...

Twelve days of fashion fun with faux fur, animal prints and bold colors!

What's on your true love's shopping list this year?  Skinny jeans, animal print accessories, faux fur coats and vests, and gold jewelry, to name a few things.  Today I am going to share with you 12 days of holiday gifts that every fashion diva is dying to have!

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

* Animal prints are at the top of any fashionista's list this year, appearing on everything from watch straps and ballet flats to skirts and sweaters.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A pair of skinny jeans or leggings are positively perfect with oversized tops and riding boots.  Skinny jeans are a must have for everyone's wardrobe when wearing boots and heels this season.  You can dress them up or down.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A pair of flashy heels that are guaranteed to add some ooo-la-la to your winter wardrobe.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A poncho style shirt or sweater pairs perfectly with skinny jeans and boots.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*Five golden rings!!  Gold is hugely popular this season because it goes with the leopard print better than the silver does.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A handbag that lays across the body.  This is both practical and fashionable this winter.

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A faux fur vest or coat is definitely a trendy way to go this year.

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A bright bold colored blouse to chase the winter blues away.  This season fuchsia, turquoise, teal, and purple are the perfect fashion antidote for dreary, gray days.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A feminine fabric blouse such as satin, silk, or even lace!

On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A pair of riding boots.  This item is a MUST HAVE for everyone's closet!

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

*A loose-fit top or sweater.  Cowl necks and dresses with draped fronts and wide, over sized sweaters are comfortable, yet fashionable choices this year.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

New Fall Hair Trend?

Here at Dr. Conkright's office the majority of the people coming in and out the door are women and everyone who works here is a woman, minus Dr. Conkright of course.  As you can imagine one thing always on our mind is BEAUTY.  An aspect of beauty that is discussed quite often is that of hair.  We are either not happy with the way our hair looks one particular day, our hair color turned out horendous, or our latest haircut is just not doing it for us.  I can't believe it, but summer is already coming to a close.  We are looking ahead at all the fall styles regarding fashion, make-up, and hair.  You see it all over the boutiques, malls, magazines, etc.

Recently Vanessa Hudgens was photographed on set of an upcoming movie project sporting a short new hairdo.  Possible new fall hair trend?  We were all curious whether this was a wig or if she really did chop off her long, beautiful locks.  Turns out, she cut off all her hair!  Not only that, she did it herself.  All of us here at the office are in agreement that this is one hairstyle that is a big no-no.  One of those she will look back on and wonder, why?  You know you can relate....we all can.  We all have had that moment of "oh no, what did i get myself into with this unbelievably awful haircut".  Her latest style has aged her years and as she put it makes her look like a "soccer mom".  Vanessa is a beautiful young actress and that will not change.  Thank goodness hair grows (or in Hollywood life, hair extensions).  Sorry Vanessa, but when it comes to my new fall hairdo, this is one I will NOT be asking for.

5 Summer Do's


Be on trend this summer by wearing the following 5 trusty trendy items:

1)  Big Floppy Hats. Look cute and keep the sun off your face.  What more can you ask for?

2)  Sweet Sundresses. How can you argue with flattering, flirty, and fun?

3)  Big Shades.  Squinting just creates more wrinkles and fines lines.  No one wants that, so keep your eyes protected, look cute, and prevent fine lines with sunglasses!

4)  Beach-Dried Hair. In winter, it takes about 5 products to pull off a look like this.  Enjoy the ease of this easy-going hairstyle!

5)  Bright Nail Polish. Instant happiness right at your fingertips!
