    I’m surprised at how much I like these bright colors! Such a nice change from the muted winter colors. The yellow looks yummy. I’m not sure how I feel about the Kelly green, but the more I see it, the more I feel I need “something” in green.

    I agree bright colors are beautiful! I LOVE the cobalt blue short sleeved cardigan. To be honest think I love the color more than the style!

    The cobalt blue is my favorite of all the colors too…though I’d prefer it in a longer sleeved style. And I love the detailing on the yellow sweater!

    Wrap Tops, Why They Work For Everybody!

    Most women want to look as thin as possible, while still looking shapely. For this reason, we though we would share with you why a wrap top looks great on every woman.

    First, a wrap top creates a the illusion of a smaller because the visual line is at an angle. Second, a wrap top is going to have a v-neck/open neck line which is slimming. It narrows the waist and accentuates the smallest part of your body, under your bust. This works equally well for small busts or large busts, short or tall, larger or smaller bodies. So if you want to look thing, get a wrap top.

    Artfulwears has this great Wrap Tee by Majestic. Made of their eco-friendly Viscose/Elasthane blend. It is soft, easy to wear, and a great fabric for all seasons. Available in White, Brown, and Black.
