Skinny Neck Scarves
Fashion. Food. Flair.
Tee, Fashion. Food. Flair.: "Scarves are a no-brainer when it comes to spring fashion. This year, they're getting a skinnier, and you probably don't have to rack up credit card debt to get one." Tee shares the surprising place she found her trendy skinny scarf, here.
Bubblegum + Stripes
Amanda, Latest Wrinkle: "I am a sucker for pastels. This faux leather jacket from Forever 21 is the perfect fit into my wardrobe. And the exciting news is that it comes in both of the Pantone 2016 colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity." Find out more about Amanda's look, here.
Allure Of Simplicity
Aney, Allure Of Simplicity: "When I saw these fringe tassels on this coat, I couldn't help myself. This new camel addition is super soft and perfect for layering over turtlenecks. It came with a belt to tie around the waist, but I prefer to wear it open for a looser and more comfortable fit." Find out more about Aney's look, here.
A Love Affair With Pink

Annie, Fashion & Beauty Inc.: "I have had a love affair with pink for as long as I can remember, because it is the most girly and beautiful colour there is. Pink can be bold, soft, elegant, sassy, flirty or fun. Everything is prettier in pink." Find out more about Annie's look, here.

Kristina, Kouture Kitten: "I've had this faux fur jacket for a while and have never known how to make the most of it. Any time I have worn it, I've dressed it up. So this is me thinking outside of the box, dressing her down. What do you think?" Find out more about Kristina's look, here.
