Trend Spotlight-Cropped Pants

When I think of cropped pants, I visualize women during the 1950s.I like how they styled their cropped pants.Women in the 1950s typically sported a pair of cropped pants with a loose shirt.They would also tie the bottom of the shirt into a knot. These shorter pants are great to wear during the summer. The lengths vary. So, you have plenty of options to choose from. As you would expect, they come in a variety of colors.

Treasures of the Sea

I figured I'd stick with the theme and post about Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides. Swarovski has created a limited edition jewelry collection inspired by the movie. The pieces in the collection contain rich, vibrant gems that are paired with props from the movie. Such items as intricately constructed swords, anchors and skulls are molded with gems. My favorite pieces are the black pearl earrings and the charm bracelet. If you put on one of these pieces of jewelry, you will certainly be ready to sail the sea in style.

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Nail Color

As many of you may know, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has been released in theaters in the US. OPI has created several nail colors and a shatter polish in honor of the release of Pirates of the Caribbean. I  believe you can buy these special edition OPI nail colors wherever OPI products are typically sold. So, if any of you are looking to embark on your own sea adventure, I suggest you try these nail colors. My favorites from the collection are Mermaid's Tears and Planks A Lot.I included the tote in the post because I think it is adorable.

Trend Spotlight - Wedges

Wedge sandals are a great addition to any woman's wardrobe. These shoes are great to slip on for a night out on the town, a lunch date with friends or a trip to your local movie theater. I think wedges are a must-have item this season. I created four looks with wedges below. Wedges look great with everything from skirts to pants.

Fantastic Footwear

She has on a chic pair of thigh high boots in this video. The leather theme throughout the video is nice. She reminds me of a rock girl from the 80s.

Shoe Style

I saw this video and decided to share it with you ladies and gents because I think her shoes in the video are very unique. My favorites are the white heels and the black boots.

Trend Spotlight - Let's Show A Little Leg

Not only have long skirts made a comeback, but long skirts with slits are popular again. As you know, fashion is like a revolving door. What once was old, is now new again. I for one, think showing a little leg is nice. These skirts are a great way for the shy individuals to display their legs without being too provocative. As you would expect, the location of the slit varies. There are skirts with slits located on the side of the garment, the front of the garment and even the back of the garment. I personally think wearing the long slit skirt with a nice heel looks fantastic.
