More Spring Ideas

Dear Fashion Friend:

This lace crop top, made from cotton, can be purchased at www.aleyacollections.com. This pullover, which would make a lovely addition to your spring wardrobe, has an exquisite geometric design pattern. Its round neck is an enchanting feature of this piece of clothing. It’s an eye-catching feature for any fashion ensemble!

What about our model? Her eyes are warm, and her smile is delightful. I love how she arranged her hair. Her use of makeup enhances well the pullover’s endearing color. I must admit, however, that I am not crazy about her pair of shoes. They are beautiful, but I don’t think they go with this piece of clothing. How about beige sandals? That would be perfect! And how about this necklace and bracelet set? Charming!

Our model has an artistic soul. “I quite follow the notion,” as Sabrina wrote to me back in January “that every pose in modeling has an unspoken story.” Sabrina could very well be describing our model when she wrote that “every pose …. reflects individual personality.” Sabrina concludes by saying that facial expressions and gazes “can be very simple but [they] can also contain millions of details” (Please see my blog post “Lovely Sabrina” for more about Sabrina and her thoughts on fashion and modeling).

I can see our model wearing this lace crop top out during an evening out with friends. Perhaps she is meeting up with them at Little Tony’s in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. Her friends are precious to her for they always remind her of this quote: “Because of you, I laugh a little harder, cry a little less, and smile a lot more. Thank you!!!”

I hope that your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one.

Sincerely,

Gabe xoxo
