Bonjour from Paris! Spring is in the Air
Bonjour from Paris!
I’m here in the city of lights with my husband, Carlos, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary! I’m cherishing every moment and soaking in all the wonder that makes Paris such a spectacular city – the arts, the culture, the history, the food, the people and of course, the fashion!
The weather has been in the low to mid 50’s this week. Spring is in the air, but cooler temps make it a little tricky when getting dressed this time of year. It’s always interesting to see how Parisian women put their own unique twist on fashion. Whether walking down the Champs-Elysees or having lunch in a charming French Bistro, I can’t help but admire the effortless style of French women!
I’m feeling inspired to put some great looks together for my girlfriends back home. It doesn’t matter where you live; we all love pretty, new clothes and jewelry. Coming up on March 27th, I have four hours of my favorite fashion and jewelry picks for spring! Here are my five favorite fashion trends of the season. These are easy, flattering pieces that will have you looking chic all season long. Ooh la la!
Bright colors are so right for Spring 2012! Our new CL Top in vivid colors will have you making a fashion splash! Pair your favorite color top with white jeans, a cork wedge sandal and colorful beads or a scarf.

Little Black Dress
One thing you can’t help but notice is that fashionable women in Paris are very much like fashionable women in New York City. They LOVE to wear black! Many of you know, black is my favorite color and designers know how much women adore this hue. Happily, they’re showing us lots of options for spring! My favorite pick is this CL black “zipper” dress. It’s anything but basic! Pair this with gold hoop jewelry and an animal print pump. Create your own catwalk this spring! Meow. ;)

- Theme Animal Print leather platform pump
- Colleen Lopez Two Tone hoop

Designers are giving us a geometry lesson for spring by showing us bold blocks of color strategically placed for maximum figure flattery! Our new Colleen Lopez Color Block dress is not only right on trend, but it will make you look 10 pounds thinner! Our dress comes in 3 different color choices. Add an extra pop of color in your shoes or handbag and you’ll be looking stylish and skinny for spring!
There you have it – my favorite trends of the season! I’m truly enjoying every minute of our trip. This American in Paris will be heading back to the states in a couple of days, and I’m excited to share all of my favorite finds with you when I get back home.
I hope you can join me on March 27th at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. EST for a rendezvous of all my favorite things fashion and jewelry!
