Louder Than Bomber Jackets

The Bomber jacket is the transition jacket that is literally the bomb. This is obvious considering they have been on trend for a few seasons and are still as hot as ever! I did a post on them back in February called An Early Spring? Bombers Away! Well I still have not bought one so I thought I better get on it and guess what? They are selling out like hotcakes. So if you have not bought your bomber jacket for these spring cool days and evenings hop to it!

Put Some Spring In Your Step With Block Heels

I just love my fashion history.

What is old is almost always new again especially when it comes to fashion so it should come as no surprise block heels are once again on trend for spring.

Haute Historian: Culottes Then And Now

Culottes began their fashion journey as a men’s pant—in the Renaissance era, upper class men wore breeches (or culottes in French).
