Jumpsuits! One of my favorite Spring Fashion Trends….

Well, Spring is certainly in the air and I am excited. I am loving a lot of the trends that are in this season from stripes to drapes to cuffs! However, I love jumpsuits! I always have…when I was just four years old I constantly asked my mother to let me wear this canary yellow jumpsuit with flowers going down one of the legs! I made myself a red and purple trimmed jumpsuit in high school….loved it! Wore it to death! I had a cute denim jumpsuit about ten years ago that I bought in the Village of NYC….I should have kept that one. The back was out and it was so comfy and edgy!

Jumpsuits can be really feminine and sexy and easy to dress up…so go shopping and try a few on. I think that I’ll go for one with really wide legs and maybe elastic at the bottom of the pants leg. Here’s a few for inspiration:

Bus Stop Has the hautest Shoes in Philly


Tucked away in the middle of Philadelphia’s Fabric Row is Bus Stop. Bus Stop is a women’s shoe boutique owned by London-born Elena Brennan. Every where that I turned, I saw one unique and take-a-second-look piece of footwear. Bus Stop even carries vegan shoes. Elena carries shoes and boots from UK designers such as Fly London, J Shoes, TOMS and more.

So if you’re in the downtown Philly area and are looking for some shoes that will make all of your BFFs jealous….you would want to visit Bus Stop. Or you can shop online. These shoes are an investment…a keepsake….worth every penny! And the decor is fun and the music is funky!
