SPRING ARRIVALS: BRENDA BEDDOME, ANNIE 50, APA DESIGN, ADDRESS APPAREL


It’s MARCH and that means I get to start singing this song in my head to convince myself that the icy blast of winter is losing its power and soon I’ll be strutting around in a sundress and sandals. The next thought that comes to mind? I NEED NEW DRESSES AND SANDALS…
Uh oh…
Conveniently enough, pretty spring dresses, cropped pants, and sparkling spring jewels are arriving at Fresh Collective in full force!
Here’s another peek at what’s new!

BRENDA BEDDOME

Any woman who appreciates comfort, quality, versatility, and flattering cuts in her wardrobe. BRENDA BEDDOME designs garments for all women who care about how they look and how they wear clothing. They are women who want comfort and style, and clothes that fit and flatter their figure – whether a size 4 or a size 16. BRENDA BEDDOME’s designs add versatility to any wardrobe, particularly through convertible pieces which offer customers new options for how a piece can be worn.

ANNIE 50

Inspired by the Fifties, the collections emphasize femininity and a flair for cuteness.  Often snug, cozy, and displaying classic designs of the era, the clothes attract a young crowd with a passion for Rock and Roll as much as a more mature crowd looking for originality and femininity.

She’s Got Style : Fall TV : Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 : Krysten Ritter

She's Got Style: Krysten Ritter
I only recently discovered it, but Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 has quickly jumped on to my must-watch list. The classic beauty Krysten Ritter plays Chloe, a glamorous, self-centered New York City gal who takes delight in traumatizing her small-town roommate June.
Ritter was more known as an indie actress with several guest star TV and small film roles, until Don’t Trust the B set her on the course to bask in a bigger spotlight.
With striking features and porcelain skin, this star mixes classic feminine pieces (polka-dot dresses, A-line skirts) with modern edgy items (printed tunics, leather jackets, combat  boots) to create a sweet but sexy pin-up meets NYC style all her own!
Beauty regime: liquid-liner cat eyes and a berry lip stain are her standard. Of course, a healthy dose of SPF to keep her milky skin glowing!
Hair: Sleek and stylish with Bettie Page bangs. On a casual day? A flirty pony tail or a simple top-knot.
