Fab Chick: Christina of LoveBrownSugar.com
Dishes Her Spring Must-Haves

lovebrownsugar's spring must-haves
Fashion/beauty blogger and writer Christina of LoveBrownSugar and I first bonded over rings we both purchased at the same street vendor in Soho. Since then I've deemed her to be a Fab Chick and have admired her eclectic sense of style and ability to mix a vintage sensibility with everyday wearable trendy items. Check out what Christina had to say about describing her personal style.
"I would describe my personal style as bohemian chic meets vintage sophisticate. I can't pinpoint one particular style I'm into. I like a lot of different things but I always search for pieces that are unique and have character and I tend to pair them with complimentary pieces that won't overpower. I'm also an accessories addict. I have an obsession with amazing jewelry and shoes. I'm one of those people who will trade in an expensive piece of clothing for an amazing pair of shoes. They just add something extra to the overall look."

1. Topshop Maxi Dress, $160
2. Jennine Turquoise Ring, $50
3. Ginger & Liz Ivy League, $12
4. Diane von Furstenberg Wedge Sandals, $295
5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Wide-Leg Pants, $298


Considering we share a love of shoes and accessories, I wanted to know what this Fab Chick's spring must-haves were.  Of course I had to ask her.
"Wow, I always have trouble coming up with must-haves because I just want EVERYTHING. I think the printed maxi dress would have to be high on my must-haves list. They're just so fun! And what's spring without prints?

I'm also planning to venture out to try the slightly-cropped above-the-ankle skirt this season. I'm digging the 70's silhouettes and you may very well find me in some wide-legged pants come spring.

As far as accessories, I'd love to get my hands on a pair of comfortable wear-till-September wooden wedges. There's always one go-to pair for me each season. Turquoise and gold jewelry make my spring/summer complete.

For beauty, I tend to go light on the makeup and heavy on the nail colors and nail art. Pretty much any of the fun colors from Ginger & Liz's spring collection will do. Especially "Ivy League", it's a fun pastel green that makes me feel more prestigious"
Again, Christina and I agree. Ginger & Liz's "Ive League" is definitely a Fab Chick Approved color for spring.

Christina's blog is great and her hair..if only my tightly coiled hair would cooperate. I love maxi dresses. I already own 12 or more and I'm looking for some affordable ones for this summer travels.
