Spring Forward

blog_beauty1With New York’s Fashion Week behind us now, the common fashionista can start putting together her spring wardrobe using inspiration from the pieces that hit the runways. Some of our favorites were pieces by YSL (the red, flowy dress that Nicole Kidman was already spotted wearing), and the images here are of Marc Jacobs’ looks for spring. These were our favorite. With bright spring colors that have a deeper shade than normal, and plenty of floral inspirations, this collection is for the woman with a delicate, feminine and mysterious side. We have no doubt that this concept will be popping up in stores everywhere. Take a look when spring happens and see how strong this collection’s influence will be on upcoming styles. As for your own version (as many of us can’t afford to buy Marc Jacobs), try incorporating two powerful hues together, like the dark purple and brown seen here, or the chocolate and pink combinations. Find a felt flower hair clip, or discover a necklace of a rose, or attach a broach to your jacket, or find a cocktail ring that boasts a large flower. Your options are endless. Now, off to it—go shopping!

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
