 Resort to Spring

Hello Fashion Diggers...

Linen Floral Sheath Dress from Mid Century Chic Hooray for sunny January days!

Now that the holidays are behind us it's not too soon to begin thinking about your Spring wardrobe... and for those of us lucky enough to have scheduled a mid-winter break to a warm weather resort or spa its a great time to begin planning for your vacation.

Consider these two key HOT trends, as seen on the runways in New York and Paris - vivid neon bright colors and prints. Especially new and exciting is anything to do with artsy abstract strokes of color or floral patterns.

Pauline Trigere Cotton Sundress from Marlene Wetherell Vintage Fashion & PhotographyWe browsed through the shops on FASHIONDIG and found a sampling of standout dresses in colorful floral prints: a 1950s sundress - a long and lean ankle sweeper by De Weese - at A to Z Catwalk; a demure little Jackie-O style 1960s print floral sheath at Mid Century Chic; a real knockout ultra chic sundress from PaulineTrigere in a green abstract print cotton cloche at Marlene Wetherell Vintage Fashion & Photography.

And of course don't forget to add the all-important accents such as colorful jewelry or slim clutch bags. Accessories go a long way in adding to your individual personal style - especially when they are unique and vintage! Check out a fine assortment of long pendant necklaces and colorful clutch bags at Mid Century Chic and a pile of fun and colorful bakelite bangles at Orlando Vintage.

So get busy packing those suitcases and carry-ons... and don't forget to bring along that all important sunscreen!
