It's a Guy Thing...

Helping a guy find his style is a tricky thing.  You don't want to push (unless you need to:) but rather gently provide opportunities for...accessorizing.  Small steps and safe bets can lead to a well heeled dude.  Here are a few ideas to get him started.

Tie one on this Easter for a new tradition 
and great photo appeal.  Neckties from J. Lovan - made right here in Iowa.

Cuffs from Decadence and spoon jewelry by Dank Artistry are accessories he'll
go for - and we've got many styles to choose from.

Meet Jane: Your Go-To Dress

Move over sweatpants - things are about to get cute around here! 

You won't be sacrificing comfort with the Jane Dress from Dear Creatures,
 it's a soft fleecy Cotton knit.  
The cut is very flattering with it's cut-away sleeves & princess seams 
and just enough gathering at the waist to keep it perky. 
 It's also a plus that the horizontal stripes are on the upper body if you know what we mean
...and then we found the'd better get both colors - then it won't be quite as obvious 
that you're pretty much  LIVING IN THIS DRESS:)

Red with Black Stripes on White, and a nice Navy/Taupe combo.  $88. XS - L

With it's Blue polka dots and cheery pop of Yellow, the Elena dress from Dear Creatures pretty much epitomizes the month of March - lovely rain plops and lots of sunny sunshine. 

Before we even opened the box we had already decided that:

1. It's time for stripes to move on over - dots are BACK, with their optimism and general adorableness...we need them in our life.

2. YELLOW IS A POWER COLOR and we really should be embracing it right now.  You may be convinced that you "can't wear Yellow",  but think again.  Entertain the thought that we are in constant flux, and that our personal colors CAN change not only by the calendar, but also to larger and more etherial cycles. 

Don't always use the same crayons!  Have another try with Yellow and if you're still convinced it's  a no go - try softening the impact with a scarf, collar or SOMETHING of a compatible color at the neckline.  Sometimes that's all it takes & you're open to some awesome new fashion adventures.

The Elena is just one of soooo many new things at Vitae - stop in and stay tuned to the blog for more peeks!
