Spring heralds a rebirth in nature; lush green foliage and magnificent flora with it's heady scent spur an urge for a new beginning in many of us. It's time to shake off the doldrums of winter and celebrate the joys of a new season. And it gives us a pretty awesome excuse for tweaking our wardrobe, updating our hair and trying on new makeup looks! ;-)

I just got a job in an office and need help! I need to buy a couple of suits suitable for work. I want to look professional and fashionable but there are SO many different style and cuts to the jackets.


I'm short (5'5") and have little to no waist line. I'd like to create the illusion of one, so I'm guessing I need more of a fitted style, but other than that, I'm lost! What length would I look for and what other details would I look for to make me appear more proportional?

I love costume jewelry, especially bracelets and pins, but I often at a loss as to how to mix various styles and colors. I don't really like 'matched sets' and would prefer to accent or contrast my choices to my outfit. Any tips on what I need to pull this off successfully?


I often worry that I may be over accessorizing with jewelry. My mother-in-law insists that three pieces (earrings, necklace and watch) are the limit and anything over that is too much. Is there
