The Bay Spring Trend Event - helping me be incredibly fashionable!

Christelle and I had the great pleasure of attending the Spring Trend Event which was held at the Queen Street Bay's White Room last week. I don't know about you, but I like it when someone very plainly spells out the trends to me, what's involved in them, how to wear them and what to buy - it makes my life so much easier!

First we got our makeup trends from MAC: Terra Copper (beautiful shimmering copper on the eyes and lips); Raw Fined (an almost natural look with perfect, glowing skin); Pop Classics (with an amazing bright pop of colour on the eyes or lips); and Ice Dreams (beautifully pastel eye shades).

And then we were on to fashion!

The colours for spring are coral, orange, bright red, bright pink, greens - neon, yellow-green, grass green, blue - denim, royal, soft and warm neutrals, soft and pretty pastels and then white moving into summer.
As far as patterns go we are looking at stripes, florals, colour block, rustic lace and crochet and tribal.  And they have grouped all of this into 4 themes:

Hyper Colour with bold blocks of colour
Riviera Redux emulating the seaside glamour of the 1950's with red, white, blue with pops of yellow and hot pink.
Modernist - classic items in beautiful fabrics and neutral colours that feel luxe.
Pretty Hip - 70's folk feel but not hippy dippy - with soft colours, florals, crochet and denim.

Some of the items you will want to make sure are in your spring wardrobe: an essential shirt, modern shift, flat sandal, something striped, cropped pant, maxi lengths and a summer tote.

What really impresses me is the variety of lines that The Bay is carrying these days including Pink Tartan, Theory and Rachel by Rachel Roy (which has some amazingly low price points on many of the items they were showing, my spring wardrobe will be including some of them for sure) - so if you haven't checked The Bay out lately - you're in for a surprise, and a treat!

I'm busy planning my spring wardrobe, if only the weather would cooperate!
