ne of the best things about dressing for spring is that we have the chance to carry over a few of our favorite fall pieces to a new season. Even better is that in the spring, we have the opportunity to indulge in trends galore. And this year, styles are especially fun and delicious, because there’s hardly a look that isn’t on-trend. From laces and sheers to camouflage and utilitarian-inspired looks, if you already own it, or see on the racks in a consignment shop, boutique or
department store, you’re probably going to look like you know what’s going on in the world of fashion. On a recent Sunday afternoon, when the breeze was nice and the skies clear, four models played dress up and told color stories—fashion stories wearing envy-invoking spring looks. There’s really no need to be jealous, though; every chic look the models are wearing came from a locally owned store. Go forth, shop, and be fabulous.

An Earth Day Toast
by Meredith W. Sullivan
one are the days when eco-friendly meant hemp necklaces, rope sandals and patchouli oil. These days, an eco-chick is sexy and cool, flirty and fun all while being conscientious of the environment. From cosmetics to clothing, handbags to housewares, more and more of today’s fashions go beyond fads and acknowledge labor practices and carbon footprints. A lot of designers are even being creative with recycling materials and repurposing goods already in existence. On April 22, dress yourself up, and let’s all make a toast to Mama Earth. She deserves it. (She does have her own day after all.) Tom’s classic shoes are made with organic cotton and contain no animal byproducts, $54; Buffalo Peak Outfitters
