How To Wear Mixed Prints for Spring / Summer 2010

We’re seeing mixed prints everywhere this Spring: Fashion mags, blogs, runways – you name it, it’s there. But it’s a tricky, tricky trend. While a haphazard approach to just throwing on mixed prints can work, this type of look is usually pulled together by a killer pair of heels and a statement bag. So the overall look screams “I’m purposely not matching in an ironic way!!” instead of “I got dressed in the dark!”

What Target Does Best: Spring / Summer Picks

The Liberty of London for Target Collection helped woo me back in, but it wasn’t the only source of temptation under those fluorescent lights. A perfect romper (M’s post has completely addicted me to rompers for moms), look-alike Hunter Rainboots, and a perfect tiny cross-body bag — all under $20!!! — sold me.

Reader Question: Help, I’m Pregnant and Going to Disney World, I Need Cute Comfy Shoes!

I am going on a trip to Disney World in late May (God help me) with my husband’s family. Our 2.5 year old will be along for the trip, and I will be about six months pregnant.
I am trying to find comfortable, breathable shoes to wear for this trip, that are also cute and stylish. My feet are wide to begin with, so pregnancy swelling+Disney crowds+heat and humidity will probably turn them into Fred Flintstone feet.
I’d appreciate any suggestions you can come up with. I’m feeling desperate.

Worth A Closer Look: Ann Taylor Loft’s Spring Line

On the fairly rare occasions I’ve wandered into Ann Taylor Loft (usually suckered in by a big sale), I’ve often left feeling underwhelmed. The clothes were never horrible…just “eh”. Once in a while I’ll pick up a necklace or something…but overall, I saw Ann Taylor Loft as a place to be bored. Nice basics, nothing exciting, nice prices, nice sales, but nothing worth a trip. Yawn.
So I was very confused, the other day, when I happened to glance over at the Ann Taylor Loft window displays. For a moment I thought I was looking in J. Crew’s windows. But no – it was good ‘ol ATL. But this time…the clothes were cuter, somehow. A bit…dare I say it? Trendy?

Reader Question: How To Minimize a Large Chest Without Showing Cleavage

This is a tough one! Neither S. nor I are large chested, so we can’t for the life of us fathom why anyone would want to cover up the girls. We love the girls. And one only gets to show them off for so many years in one’s lifetime. . . but I guess this all goes back to people with curly hair wanting it straight, statuesque gals feeling awkward whilst their petite pals kill themselves on heels, and, in general, the grass being greener on the other side.
