Forget April showers we need to get ready for WINDY May! All across the country I’m hearing about the winds reaching and exceeding 80mph. Let alone in LA it was pretty windy last night. With this is mind, I’ve found a fashion solution to cope with the change in weather.

If you’re not sitting across the aisle at a wedding (royal) then indeed wear a white dress. For goodness sake we don’t have to deprive our wardrobe of the basics, which look uber-chic in ivory! White is appropriate and tasteful for so many spring occasions including: Graduations, baby showers, birthday parties, BBQ’s, and even bridal showers.
We’ve all heard the traditional fashion decree, ‘Don’t wear white after Labor Day,’ but were you aware that September 5th is a long ways away? Given us Californians live primarily in a season less climate, why not wear white all year long?
The ultimate white dress can go from day to night as well as, from the office to lunch. Take a look at Shabby Apple’s new Vintage inspired collection, Roamin Holiday. Budget babes will love that most of the frocks are under $100. What an inspiring collection providing practicality and sophistication to women on-the-go!
It is definitely feels like summer and if you live in LA you probably already want to wear a swimsuit. There are so many emerging designers and perhaps some of your all time favorites whom you continuously purchase from are offering beautiful garments but this season consider Zingara swimwear before you hit the beaches.
“Traditionally Zingara produces “a chock full of energy: electric hues from hot pink to sea foam; kaleidoscopic prints including paisley, stripes and paint stokes.”
They have been around for 30 years obtaining the 10,000hours according to Malcolm Gladwell for expertise in any occupation let alone swim gear. If you haven’t heard of them then take a look at some of my favorite frocks from their 2011 Summer II collection (below).
“ZINGARA has been infusing the bohemian spirit into the resort lifestyle. Co-owner, founder and managing director Nathalie Azoubel oversees production as ZINGARA uses the finest materials to create an exceptional fit.”
You have to agree, fit is the key to beachwear success. If you feel good in your bathing suit then 9 times out of 10 you look good too! Therefore, I recommend searching for swimwear that compliments your physique and makes you illuminate when you see yourself in the mirror.
ZINGARA’s products are sold exclusively in ZINGARA stores, the first location in Aventura, FL are located throughout 42 locations in Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Panama.
The ASPCA is such a remarkable charity benefiting man’s best friend and other loveable animals. April 14th marked the 14th Annual ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Ball held in the Big Apple.
Tickets for the event start at $300 per person. Last year’s event raised over $1 million for our furry friends.
Many celebrities, professionals and animal lovers attended including Dexter and No Ordinary Family star Julie Benz who was glowing in a sexy and sophisticated mocha- gold crunchy beaded sequin cocktail dress by THEIA . Keep in mind it is prom season and this could be a solid pick. And, for those of us past our wander years this dress could be an amazing date dress!
The dress retails for $650 and is available at Saks Fifth Ave.
