Spring is coming, so get ready, get set, and be sure to STROLL before you SCROLL!
The secret to smart online shopping is to plan a "see and feel" real shopping trip BEFORE you allow yourself to peruse the millions of fashion choices so easily available on the net.
While doing your homework browsing through the newest trends at your favorite brick and mortar stores, take time to educate yourself on how various brands and styles actually fit you. Don't get "fixated" on being one size because when a designer changes fit models, that can affect how its sizing will work on you. In other words, what used to be an 8 might now be a 6 or a 10! Be flexible and willing to size up or down to look your best.
By taking your fashion field trip, you set yourself up for more successful online shopping. A purchase that fits and flatters upon arrival means no need for time consuming and inconvenient returns.
Oh, and did we mention the added bonus of burning more calories??? No doubt about it - strolling the mall before scrolling on the couch is a very healthy habit that makes total fashion sense!

Remember those huge earrings we sported in the 80s and 90s?? We sure do :)! We also remember the pain that often accompanied them...unwelcome side effects like tight clips that pinched so badly you could only wear them for short fashion flashes or bodacious pierced baubles so heavy that they ripped or stretched out our ear holes :(. Isn't it amazing what we'll endure for the sake of style?!?
Well, as is often the case in the fashion world, everything OLD is NEW again...Large ear candy is back for 2018, but we're happy to report that the statement earrings of today are kinder and gentler (aka more gravity friendly) than their predecessors :).
You should really think of these impact makers as mini works of art and, if you're up for the drama, you're sure to find something to suit your taste from long yet lightweight metals, tassels, beads, feathers, and stones to always popular oversized hoops in interesting new shapes like oblong and asymmetrical.
We've told you many times that adding a few new accessories is the easiest, most inexpensive way to jump start your look each season. So, to be on trend and add interest (along with plenty of drama) to any outfit, now is definitely the time to consider incorporating a few statement earrings to your jewelry collection. (Or, if you dare and your ears are up for the challenge, raid those old jewelry boxes and really go retro!)
