Spring 2008 Trends....

Over at STYLEnosh they're featuring a CNN/InStyle video on top 5 spring fashion trends....

Style Tips: Spring Trends from InStyle Magazine

Of all the trends listed, I think for the 50+ gal incorporating splashes of color in our spring wardrobes will be the best bet. It will also be the easiest on the budget -- there are so many great accessories out there right now that bring color front and center.

A few options:


Steven by Steve Madden Bessy Pump - %55.00 (on sale at

Yes I know, the 4 inch heel is fierce! But it's the color I want to point out - a great one to sport in a shoe this spring!

Steven by Steve Maden Hellenna Pump - $69.50 (on sale at

Yes, yes another ridiculously high heel (still, I know there are 50+ ladies out there that can still pull them off - I envy you, my sisters!). But I love the concept of that touch of a bright color on the toe - this would be an easy one to pull off for work - and what a delight to look down at the end of that dark workplace appropriate trouser and see that hit of color! ;-)

Nine West Evachen Peep-Toe Pump - $79.00

Once again, a wonderfully discreet hit of color!

Let's step back from the heel stratosphere...

Volatile Kathy Pump - $64.00

Yellow, as has been touted all over, is THE color this spring and a yellow pump is a great way to integrate it into your Spring wardrobe!

Miss Sixty Virginie - $153.00

The yellow here is a lot subtler and the heel a lot lower - but it still has that Spring feel!

BCBGirls Monday Pump - $95.00

This shinny blue pump sure makes my heart pump faster! :-D


Ettiene Aigner NY Core Large Hobo Bag - $118.00

Francesco Biasia Electra Shoulder Bag - $238.00

I think a mustard yellow bag is a great alternative for those of us who like the freshness of the yellow color but not necessarily the brightness!

Coach Miranda Canvas Satchel - $598.00

I love the color green too but, like yellow, it can be a bit, well, loud shall we say? This lovely Coach gives just the right spritz of spring green!

Dooney and Bourke Suede Medium Sac w/Twist Strap - $221.25 (on sale at

Orange done in a soft suede? Delish!

But if you want to just cover all your bases:

Lucky Brand Jeans Sunshine Daydream Striped Leather Satchel - $208.00

Yeah I know what some of you are thinkin' - didn't I throw a bag like that out several years ago? Yes, it's got that 60s feel goin' on! But if there's still a bit of that Boho girl in ya - this could be the only bag you need to add to your closet this Spring!
