Trend Spotting

by Lisa of Glamourpuss Creations

Working in a medium that hinges on the the latest fashion trends (accessories make the outfit!) I spend a fair amount of time keeping on top of the seasons styles.

I love Polyvore for an amazing look at how different fashionistas take pieces from Target to Tahari and create their own unique look. Here are some of my latest seasonal inspirations...
