spring fashion insights

i'm perusing my backlog of fun e-mails and came across the predictions for spring 2007 from thought you may enjoy the scoop:

Top Finds for 2007

Wide legged jeans. Bit of a change from the super slim lines we've been seeing all winter, but these very 70's jeans flatter your figure, hugging you in all the right places while giving you room to move! One caveat: take the hemline to the floor girls!
Flowing, sexy sleeves: Juliet style sleeves, bell sleeves, lantern style and flirty poet sleeves. Very romantic and ladylike. Look for them on blouses and dresses, even jackets and coats this season.
Gold bangles. Mix textures—polished, hammered, brushed, braided, even jeweled—and layer them up your wrist!
Gladiator heels. Strappy and sexy, and very up-to-date; from ultra glam to a casual and chic sandal, perfect for jaunting about town.
Dropwaist dress. Such a versatile silhouette that can be dressed-up or casual. Wear with leggings during the winter, then slip on some strappy patent leather sandals for spring!
Loose and flowing tops . Feminine and saucy at the same time!
Boatneck blouses and dresses. So very chic!
Black and white floral patterns. Flirty skirts, fabulous dresses, sexy tops, even handbags and shoes get in on the action!
Little white dress. White is the new black. Get a head start on summer's hottest look.
Very sexy heels. Cross front shoes were all over the runways for Spring 2007. Love these by Marc Jacobs.
Leather backpack. A more sophisticated version of the co-ed carryall is perfect for hauling all your girly goodies around.
excerpt from 1.5.07 shesheme online newsletter.

last night we had a fun book club at the studio that was supposed to last one hour and went for two hours with lively conversations and helpful insights from the participants. we explored the challenges of leading a "double life" (professionally one way, personally another), how to avoid overdoing the self-help craze and being comfortable with who/where you are, and we created vision statements for 2007. thank you, girls, for joining me. you were an inspiration!
