Spring Things: Awaken those Wardrobes!
Spring is just around the corner (March 20th marks the Spring Equinox!) and our wardrobes are in need of a major awakening. This week, we're embracing all the things we LOVE about the season: a palette of soft pastels as deliciously indulging as a box of macarons; fresh floral pieces with long, flowing lines; a light cardigan or jean jacket for easy transitions; ornamented peep-toe wedges and strappy leather sandals; a mani/pedi that pops with shades like "Pink Champagne," "Peppermint Patty" and "Peach Passion". Warmer weather couldn't arrive soon enough!
To freshen up your closets, we're sharing a few of our favorite LILA spring styles - get ready for one-of-a-kind handbags, jewelry, scarves, and dresses that will make a splash.
