Fringes, Florals, & Pastels Oh My! Your Guide To Spring 2015 Fashion

Spring seems like a far way off but really, it's just around the corner! Before we know it the birds will be singing and flowers will be in bloom. Nature comes to life again this time of year and fashion is taking its cue. This Spring's fashion meets minimalism with retro, folkloric styles. We're talking fringes, 70's Bohemian style dresses and big floral prints. But before we get into all that jazz, I'd like to show you the Spring 2015 Pantone Colors. 


As you can see, there are pastels, neutrals, & darker more simple colors. Pantone's goal was to come up with colors that speak softly, remind us of nature, & provide simple comfort with the everyday hustle while being truly fashionable. If you want to read more about each color and their perfect color pairs, please refer to the Pantone's Fashion Color Report Of Spring 2015  http://www.pantone.com/pages/fcr/?season=spring&year=2015&pid=11



Now let's take a look at some of the trends we will see!

FRINGES
Allow for instantaneous gypsy look


Fringed Komono






BOHO CHIC
Earthy. Lovely. Feminine







FLORALS & PASTELS
Delicate. Spring Inspired.






And Last But Not Least...
MILITARY INSPIRED
Allows for simple yet edgy look









To sum up this Spring's trends, the styles will be simple & fresh. Inspired by nature, these styles will take away the monotony of everyday life. They are easy to replicate and even easier to personalize them to your exact wants and needs. The thing about trends is that they technically aren't "new". Trends come and go, and before you know it they are back again! So get out there & live up the returning styles. Make them your own!

Made by a Fabricista: Updating My Summer Wardrobe

Hello all!  I am back and excited to share my makes for the summer.   While looking for something to wear, given the heat and humidity, it became obvious quickly that there are two gaps in my summer wardrobe:  a sundress and a maxi dress with ruffles.  After all these years, I had neither one! From Instagram’s MeMadeMay discussions, true sundresses are lightweight sleeveless dresses that expose the shoulders, arms, possibly the back, and typically have straps.

Made By A Fabricista: The Perfect Suit

One piece of clothing I have always had an issue buying is a bathing suit. The top never fits the bottom, the torso is always too short and the straps never hit in just the right spot. So when I find the perfect fitting bathing suit, it’s as if I hit the lottery. When I went on vacation last month, I found a great fitting suit from Amazon. The suit fit great but the fabric was a different story. All I kept thinking was “this suit would be in my top 2 if the fabric was better”. So then enters this perfect nylon/lycra hibiscus print I snagged from Fabric Mart online. It provides the perfect amount of stretch and comfort making it the best option for swimwear. I duplicated the pattern and fit and made it just a bit better with the fabric. Chandler’s suit was drafted. NIKKI   |  @ beautejadore Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!
