Celebrate Spring With Johnny Was Scarves

Flirt With Color

Do you want to add some Spring color to your wardrobe, but you are not quite sure where to start? How about a colorful scarf to brighten up your neutral pieces? I have collected Johnny Was scarves for a few years now, and I always look forward to seeing their new designs each season. Johnny Was scarves are all 100% silk georgette, and feature braided cotton tassels on the corners to keep your scarf in place.

Showcased below are some of my favorite Johnny Was Scarf designs for Spring. The Johnny Was Teally Scarf (left, $86) is a bold floral print scarf that features bright shades of pink and raspberry along with pops of yellow, teal and green. I love this one!

The Johnny Was Ross Scarf (center, $86) is for those of you who love pink! This scarf features pink and orange flowers on an ivory background with pretty pops of blue. This lovely scarf will bring you lots of compliments!

The Johnny Was Donna Scarf (right, $86) is another beautiful floral print scarf. The prominent color of this scarf is a vibrant turquoise and the flowers are in shades of turquoise, red, purple, and yellow, with deep green leaves. If you love to wear turquoise jewelry, this scarf will be an excellent choice for you.

Are you ready to try a new scarf for Spring? Don't worry! It is very easy to figure out what to wear! All of these scarfs will look fabulous with a white top and jeans, and we all have those pieces in our wardrobes! Take a leap and try one!

Eternal Perspective Handbags and Totes

Fine Accessories from Tom Taylor Buckles & Belts

I discovered Eternal Perspective Handbags in Jackson, Wyoming a few years ago, and I was immediately impressed with the quality and design of the bags. Since that time I have had the pleasure of getting to know owner Lynn Gerber, and I have enjoyed watching the Eternal Perspective line grow and prosper.

The owners  of Eternal Perspective reside in Colorado on horse properties where they have room to live the Western lifestyle. Eternal Perspective is committed to quality. Their first priorities are respectful relationships, quality service, and product availability. Most Eternal Perspective Handbags are made from buffallo, bull, or steer hide. Each handbag is a one-of-a-kind creation that reflects the Western lifestyle of Colorado, and is built to be enjoyed for many years.

Eternal Perspective Handbags are available at select upscale boutiques across the country, including Tom Taylor Belts & Buckles in Santa Fe, NM. Tom Taylor is well known for fine quality handmade belts, buckles, and accessories, and Eternal Perspective is proud to be a featured line in their store and on their website.

Tom Taylor is one of the first retailers to feature the new line of leather and fabric totes that Eternal Perspective has introduced for 2014. The Hopi Tote (left, $550) is a large size tote that features Southwestern inspired upholstery grade fabric with a black steer hide bottom, flap, and snap on fringe with wrapped turqoise on the ends and an art-to-wear tassel. The flap is accented with a turquoise stone and embossed silver cross. The tote is fuly lined and features the designer print for the pockets. I love the tribal design and colors of this tote!

The Deborah Handbag (center, $495) is one of the classic Legacy styles of Eternal Perspective Handbags. This beautiful handbag is crafted of bison leather. The flap is accented with genuine turquoise stones, and attached to the handle is a detachable art-to-wear bracelet.

The Sierra Tote (right, $375) is a smaller size tote made of beautiful patterned upholstery grade fabric and a brown steer hide bottom and  flap. The flap features a turquoise stone and embossed silver cross. The snap on leather fringe trim has wrapped turquoise on the ends and an art-to-wear tassel.  This tote is also fully lined and features the designer print for the pockets. If you enjoy wearing earth tones, this tote is perfect for you!

Visit the Tom Taylor Belts & Buckles website to see these Eternal Perspective handbags and totes, along with several more of their handbag designs.

Tasha Polizzi American Girl Collection

Spring Style from Smith and Western

Now that Spring is finally here, I think we are all ready to add some fresh new pieces to our wardrobes. And you cannot go wrong when you select a piece from designer Tasha Polizzi. Tasha Polizzi's Spring/Summer 2014 clothing line is called The American Girl Collection, and it celebrates the beauty of the American Landscape. I love how Tasha Polizzi has interpreted our American heritage through fashion, using the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue in a classic and yet fashion forward way.

You will find a wonderful selection of Tasha Polizzi Spring fashions on the Smith and Western website, styled by Dolores Smith and photographed by Eric Alan Smith. Smith and Western is one of the few online stores that features their own models and photography, and you will truly enjoy viewing all the fabulous Western inspired fashion, accessories, and jewelry that they offer.

The Tasha Polizzi Heritage Shawl (left, $240) is one of my favorite pieces in The American Girl Collection. The red, white, and blue color palette is perfect for the Spring and Summer months, and the eye catching Southwestern design will get you noticed! It is made of 100% cotton, making it very comfortable to wear. And as you can see, it looks fabulous with all shades of denim. The Tasha Polizzi Montana Saddle Bag (red) featured in the photo will be arriving soon at Smith and Western.

The Tasha Polizzi Mojave Shirt (center, $164) is soft and sheer with lovely floral embroidery accenting the yoke, sleeves, and back of this feminine Western style shirt. It has a tailored fit and features pretty silver buttons with turquiose centers. The sleeves can be rolled up for a "camp shirt" look or be worn long. The Primrose color of this shirt is one of the hottest colors this year!

The Tasha Polizzi Cibola Shirt (right, $150) is sure to become one of your favorite pieces! This 100% cotton denim shirt features intricate ivory embroidery on the yoke, sleeves, and along the hem. It includes pearl colored snaps down the front and on the two front pockets. It looks fabulous paired with the USA Beaded Vest ($248) made of tan chamois canvas fabric accented with leather trim and seed bead designs of flags, feathers, and roses. You will also find a variety of belts and jewelry to coordinate with these pieces on the Smith and Western website.
