Spring 2010 Trends

I don't know about you guys but I am ready for spring! Bring on the warm weather and new spring fashions.

From neutrals and feathers to peek-a-boo mesh panels and schoolgirl chic, here's what you'll be wearing this spring:

NEUTRAL TONES: The aesthetic here is simple, clean, and elegant -- dresses, in particular, were the focus of this pared-down look.

PEEK-A-BOO: Exposed flesh was in no short supply on the runways. Designers chose to use cut-outs, slits, mesh, lace, and more to give a sexy little peek at the skin beneath their ornate pieces.

METALLICS: Recession? What recession? It was disco fever across many of the spring runways, with designers banking on glitz, sparkle, and shimmer to distract consumers' attention away from retail's continuing woes.

FEATHERS: Dovetailing with the "who cares about the recession" theme, designers took a renewed interest in feathers for spring -- of all colors and textures. The frothy look added a playful levity to the runways, not unlike taking part in a fantastic carnival.

SCHOOL SPIRIT: Back-to-school season may be September, but the spring collections were packed with knee socks, preppy stripes, gym clothes, and academic blazers.

LEISURE SUITS: Fall 2009 brought the "power suit" back to the foreground of fashion, but Spring 2010 heralds the return of leisure dressing -- attire fit for jet-setters and effortlessly put-together cool kids.

Neighborhood Party

I was forewarned that Neighborhood parties don't typically bring in the crowds but b/c I live in a new neighborhood I thought it was worth a shot. I mailed out 100 invitations and only one person came. =( Oh well, at least 100 more people now know about Clothes Hound!

February is going to be a busy month with 5 Clothes Hound parties already scheduled! Just trying to get in as much selling as possible for Baby arrives! She is going to be one little fashionista!

Why I added Stella & Dot!

I had no idea what opportunity lied before me when two girls in Richmond VA, shared Stella & Dot with me in December. I own Clothes Hound of course but still wanted to make more money without giving up the flexibility I currently have in my schedule. I'm 7 months pregnant and want to stay at home and am trying to save some money before Baby comes. I fell in love with what these two ladies shared with me. Was this too good to be true? No! It actually works! I can work my own hours, make good money and have a jewelry collection that is to die for! If you know what you want out of it, make it happen! You are in control of your own business and what a great opportunity lies ahead of each and every one of us! It is such an amazing time to be involved with Stella & Dot. The company is so new and growing like crazy. How can anyone resist the beautiful jewelry and incredible business opportunity?! I am so thankful that I heard about Stella & Dot when I did! It's a great addition to my trunk shows and I love sharing it with others! I can't imagine what lies ahead of each of us. It gets better everyday! Great way to start a new year!
