The Ralph Lauren Spring 2011 show was the inspiration behind this look. Well, that and the Hermes Spring 2011 show...a little bit of a combo there, but mostly Ralph Lauren. This has to be one of our all time favorite looks.

This is one of my favorite blouses right now and it highlights some lovely trends. The saturated teal color will be perfect for spring, and bring some needed color to my wardrobe, and the smart tiny collar is very on trend. The narrow, buttoned up collar seems to be holding strong well through Spring and into Fall 2011 - almost every blouse that came down the Givenchy Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear runway was buttoned up to the neck. At the Spring shows designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim , Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang also buttoned their blouses up. What better, or easier, way could there be for a Modest Girl to be uber cool this Spring and Fall than to wear a tiny buttoned up collar? I think none. This blouse is vintage, but one can easily find blouses with tiny collars at Urban Outfitters and JCrew and choose to button or-not-to-button at their discretion.

 The 70's are back, my friends, and the Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 show was a strong testament to that fact. We saw beautiful, colorful, flowing midi and maxi length skirts, peasant blouses and wrap dresses come down the runway. Marc Jacobs a bit pricey for you? There are plenty of 70's inspired pieces available for spring in every price range - Nordstrom, Piperlime  and Topshop have some nice things.

Fur has been everywhere this past season and will continue to be strong into Fall 2011. Whether faux or real, there are so many ways to wear a bit of fur. Here we've shown two ways to wear a fur vest - a piece that transitions easily from winter into spring.

In speaking of her Pre-Fall 2011 collection, Caroline Herrera described how difficult it is to wear bright clothing everyday. Her solution? Grays, black and white with a little leopard thrown in. A fabulous combination we think every girl could handle. We tried our own version of this combo and decided to throw a few nautical stripes into the mix for fun... Leopard scarf and stripe top are Forever 21, tweed blazer from the Gap, and Urban Outfitter jeans.

This spring is the time for color and we think bright red looks amazing on nearly everyone. Funny enough, Alison here always thought red didn't suit her until she tried this dress on for the first time and then...hello bombshell! This dress is vintage but there are plenty of bright pieces around this spring so pick your favorite bright color and grab some attention.
