A Breath of Fresh Air: Spring/Summer Fashion

Posted By on Thu, May 16, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Now that it's spring, and actually feels like spring, my shoulders and legs reunite with the sun, and my all-black wardrobe gets injected with a few brightly colored tops, floral fabric heels, and bold geometric accessories.

Investing in key pieces to add to my wardrobe is a long, thoughtful process that usually involves discovering new local designers and boutiques that offer custom handmade items or limited collections. In a city like Memphis that breeds entrepreneurship, those indie designers and boutiques are emerging more and more. Finding them is the hard part, so here are some feature items from up and coming designers and my favorite local boutiques.
