Week's Best Looks: March 21st 2013.

Another Sunday, another round-up of many, many favorite looks. It seems as each week goes by I find more & more blogs, therefore I have more & more favorite looks to showcase. A lot of them are from some bloggers I follow religiously & have been for months, some others are from newer bloggers I have discovered & follow. And the others are from brand-new bloggers I have discovered on the week they were featured, mostly from different link-ups done through the weeks - whose outfits were so cute, I have run to check out their blogs & that said outfit from the link. And if I like it a lot, if I love it, it makes it to the Week's Best Looks of the actual week I feature it on. This week I have many faces who are already popular to this feature & whose blogs I love, whose styles I adore & admire. You will see some bloggers make an appearance for a second or third time. And last but not least we have 16 New Faces in 16 Fantastic Outfits so WELCOME to My Blog Everyone!! =) Out of curiosity we got 3 Erin(s) & 3 Alison(s) this week.

The items you will see a lot this week are plain White Tees (or T-Shirts) worn & dressed up in so many ways & lots of Blazers. In the Blazer bunch we have Stripped, Tweed, Hot Pink, Teal, Navy, Mocha, Cream, Olive Green & Floral. As usual we have a lot of Denim Jackets, too, this week we have 3 of them including a Denim Vest. We also have two little Leather Jackets. As far as dresses the High-Low Trend goes strong this week featuring everything from a LBD to Tie-Dye & Stripped ones, in all 4 Dresses of this Style. Stripes go strong this week, starting with a Gorgeous Stripped Maxi in all colors of the Rainbow & even the Classic Black+White kind. But we also have a lot of Floral, after all Spring is here. This week we have ladies wearing a lot of Blue Jeans: Simple, Distressed or Boyfriend Style. Also quite a few pairs of Colored Bottoms, including 2 pairs of Pale Pink Skinnies both of which were worn for two Little Girls' Birthday Parties. We also have our share of White Jeans/Pants There is a little bit of Ombre, a little bit of Lace and a little bit of Peplum this week, too. We also have Rainbow Stripes going on in two Dresses. As far as shirts go, Utility Blouses & White Button-Downs are what we see the most. The trend in Handbags for the week is either Large, Cozy, Leather Bags or Clutches in a Relaxed Fold-over Style or shaped like an Envelope. We see a lot of Quilted Purses, too. Like last week, we have Gorgeous Shoes too, including lots of Sandals since the toes are coming out & pedicures are being shown off due to the warmer weather. We have a lot of Wedges, Nude Pumps, Nude Bow Ballet Flats, Cognac Sandals but this week I also noticed a Lace-up, Strappy Trend in 3 pairs of Stilettos worn by 3 Stylish Ladies. Another Trend in shoes is Criss-Crossing Strappy Styles. A little bit of Gold Metallic & Animal Print in the shoes, also. Also, this week you will find lots of Belts in Different Colors, Widths & Styles, with or without Buckles. And as always lots of Statement Jewelry: Beautiful Stone Necklaces, Bib Necklaces, Crystal Necklaces, Cuffs, Long Dangly Earrings, Cocktail Rings & armful of Bracelets. You will also see many Classic Gold Watches, this week.

Several ladies have not one but two Lovely Looks this week, like Lovely Lynne whose Retro Outfits both of which feature Two Gorgeous Vintage Hats I adored; or Joyful Jenna who had a Beautiful Mustard Blouse, Adorable Purse & Stunning, Girly Shoes with Spikes all of which piqued my interest, this week. Also, for the second time this week I am doing a Week's Best Dressed which this week belongs to Londyn who is a Lovely Fashionista (also one of My Favorite Bloggers & one of the very first blogs I read back 3-4 years ago). And, we have a Week's Best Outfit which this week is a Gorgeous, Girly, Green-Floral Dress paired with just as Gorgeous & Girly Shoes. =) So, if one, two or more of your looks are featured this week, or I have linked up your blog, whether it is for the first time or the tenth time, be polite & link back to this post on a future Blog Post of yours. It is the right thing to do. Thank You & Enjoy these Lovelies!!

THIS WEEK'S LOVELIEST LOOK IS MARIE OF THE JOY OF FASHION. She is My Most Favorite Look of the Week.
Marie calls this The Perfect Dress for Spring and I agree 100%. The Fabulous Print of this Dress takes you to a Fabulous Green Forest with Blooming Flowers, Crystal-Water Waterfalls and Birds Singing Happily. I Love her Girly, Lavender, Bow Wedges too; the Shoes bring out the little Lavender Flowers of her Dress. To make the look more Fun, Marie adds Colorful Cocktail Rings, lots of Bracelets, Crystal Butterfly Earrings & finishes with an Understated Neutral Clutch. She also had 2 other Fab Outfits this week, one with a Mickey Top & another with a Peplum Top so check her out!

MY OWN FAVORITE LOOKS FOR THIS WEEK. What do you think?
This Color-block Look is one of my Two Favorites this week because I love both these colors together, the Floral Tights, Fun+Colorful Crystal Bracelets & Bow Clip on my hair. It was the Perfect Dressy Outfit to wear for Dinner to a 60th Birthday Party.
This Floral & Lavender Look is also my Favorite because I wore my Favorite New Leggings with a Cardigan I really like from my Collection & even added some Floral Jewelry for more Girly Appeal. I am also wearing one of my Most Favorite pairs of Ballet Flats with this.
