Winter is nearly finished and it's time to welcome and embrace the warmth and colors of spring. Valerie Williams of Paul Fredrick has already published her list of wardrobe styles for 2014 Spring.

"With the polar vortex (hopefully) behind us and spring approaching, it’s time to update your wardrobes accordingly. 2014’s spring fashion is balanced between bold and subdued, modern and retro–making it simple to keep with the times while staying true to your personality.
Here are some key style trends to keep in mind as you revamp your wardrobe for the changing weather.

Many designers are looking to the casual styles of the 1940s and 1950s for inspiration. Think peak lapels, spread collars and high-waisted, pleated trousers.
Loose fits
Men’s suits are beginning to move away from the ultra-slim cuts of recent years. This spring sees suits fitting more loosely, with softer lines and a more relaxed appearance.
Floral patterns

Floral patterns are shaping up to be
one of the dominant trends this spring. While an outrageous floral blazer and accompanying pants might not be work appropriate, you can add a touch of springtime style to your outfit with a floral-print tie.
Plaid and checked blazers
Flowers aren’t the only pattern that’s in this season. If you want something a little less flamboyant, plaid and checked blazers are an equally stylish option. A windowpane jacket can bring a measure of colorful flare.
Double-breasted coat
Fans of classic style rejoice: the double-breasted blazer continues its a comeback. Ideal for taller men but appropriate for just about anybody, the double-breasted blazer is virtually guaranteed to catch the eye.
Leather bags
The ubiquity of iPads and other tablets is leading to a proliferation of small bags for men, similar to classic document wallets. Generally they’re made of leather, but this season will see more soft fabrics that can be easily rolled.

Traditionally, springtime colors have been lighter, like pastel pinks, purples and grays. While those colors look great, and are always appropriate for this time of year, 2014’s style is slightly muted (outside of the floral prints, of course). Blue in all shades seems to be a color of choice, giving you plenty of options, from a light-blue dress shirt to a navy suit.
Long coats
In a reversal of recent trends toward short-cropped jackets, longer, more weather-appropriate overcoats are coming back in style. 2014’s long coats tend toward the minimalist, with clean lines and few flourishes. Now you can stay comfortable and fashionable during the transition from winter to springtime, a notoriously difficult time of year to dress for.
Keeping up with the times can be a daunting task as trends change from season to season. But there’s no need for drastic measures–if you aren’t the type to wear a pink flowered three-piece suit, don’t feel like you need to in order to be stylish. Fashion trends should serve your own personal style, and not the other way around."

Personally, I will go with the Retro Casual, Floral Patterns, Leather bags and Blue shades of fabric. Retro fashion has always been stylish. Wearing a 1940's inspired dress with slim waist and dainty clutch would be fabulous to wear in the streets. Floral printed fabrics are also gorgeous to wear in the day when going out with friends or a lunch date. I love leather. And to match a leather bag with any casual attire gives it a tint of a rocker mood. Blue color is a lovely color, too. As spring moves toward summer, blue can give a cooling effect under the warm sun.

What about you? What's your favourite Spring trend?

Quick Review: Mistine Cosmetics Thailand

Mistine is a direct selling cosmetics company from Thailand. It is my first time to hear and try this brand when I came here in Cambodia. Mistine is very similar with Avon where in they have a wide range of products not only for beauty concerns but also for health and home and lifestyle.
I have seen independent sellers for this brand on facebook but they were mostly for pre-order basis as they will still be coming from Thailand. I had tried posting orders from one famous online shop but didn't get good results as they had me waiting but nadda. Nothing came. And then finally, I found a visible and tangible cosmetics shop that sells Mistine items-----> Lum Orng Cosmetic Online Shop. I went ahead to look for the address. As soon as I entered the shop, a lady with a warm smile welcomed me. Chovy, Lum Orng's sister (owner of the shop), showed me all the items and let me try them all with the testers. Since then, I have been a regular customer of theirs because they're custo…
