Where is Anne Going Now?

Tomorrow another big adventure starts … But where I’m going is a mystery!

I travel throughout the year, both for fun and for Frill. This time it’s for fun, but I’m always on the hunt for new stuff to bring back to the shop. I love to see the world and visit different places! As much as I adore RVA, the world is too big to spend in one place. Get out and see it!

Here are some snaps from a trip I took back in January for a wellness retreat in Mexico:

Another sunrise. Another mountain. #thesebootsweremadeforwalking #gratefulheart #norestforthewicked

Our sunrise hikes were lit by these beautiful skies:

And alas, I’m itching for more adventure. Somewhere with forests, volcanos, and a bunch of history, maybe…

I will post online to give you hints about where I am, and you’ll have to guess until I reveal it! So tell me, where do think I’m off to this time?

Fashion Friday

Happy Fashion Friday!

I’m such a big fan of fun accessories that I wanted to share one of my personal favorites with you this Friday. Pom-poms are so much fun to wear. One of the trends you might see on the blog is how much I love to make a statement with my accessories – I’m a firm believer that your style should reflect who you are!

Check out these puffs on my shoes!

Fringe and poms! My #DIY project done! #denim #fringe #pompoms #fashion

The Outfit describes these adorable little balls of fluff with the perfect word: playful. They can take the boring seriousness away from an outfit while still looking stylish! You just have to smile when you see them. Adults can be playful, too!

And they’re popping up all over Frill this season… I told you I wouldn’t put anything in the shop I wouldn’t wear myself. Here are some of my favorites:

These pom-poms will help keep your neck warm!

They’re on the catwalk, so quit telling yourself you can’t pull them off! What you wear should be fun – give them a shot. And what better time to try a new colorful statement piece than spring? I promise you won’t be disappointed.

For the pom-pom lovers out there: What is your favorite accessory? Snap a picture and post it here, or link to us on Instagram so I can see it!

Easter in the Shop

Spring is finally here, and I am so happy about it! I hope the warm weather is moving in for good, and most importantly: NO MORE SNOW. I’m over the flakes! I need the sunshine!

With spring time comes bright, bold, BEAUTIFUL colors and a bunch of new things to welcome to the shop. Right now the shelves are stocked for Easter. There are so many bunnies!

Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday is back, and you’re going to want to stand at attention for this one.

Recently, some of the blogs and clothing stores I subscribe to have been emailing me about one of my favorite outerwear staples: the army jacket.

(And it’s the day after St. Patrick’s Day – the perfect day to celebrate this green jacket!)

Le Catch wrote about “revamped” army jackets – check out some of the ruffles and fringe these jackets have! I’m digging this feminine spin on an typically masculine style, it’s very trendy. The best part is you can snag a more affordable jacket at a thrift store or on sale, and embellish it yourself with buttons and patches.

Are army jackets a yay or nay? Tell me what you think!
