Bomber Jackets Anyone?

In Fall of 2015 we witnessed the return of the bomber jacket. If you listened to 1990s rap music, you may refer to it as an “O.P.P.” jacket representative of the 90s anthem, “You Down Wit’ OPP?” But we truly owe the military for the original style and design of this jacket. Referred to as the “MA-1” flight/bomber jacket, designed circa 1950, it was designed with the needs of a military pilot in mind. Initially the jacket came in midnight blue or army green with a bright orange lining. While this wasn’t the first bomber jacket design, this was the first to have a knit collar which has clearly been a crowd pleaser based on it’s 60+ year longevity in street style and fashion.

Enter Fall 2016, the bomber has evolved and is still proving itself to be a wardrobe staple. With fun, bold color choices, a variety of fabrications and intricate embroidery; these trendy and affordable bomber jackets are sure to keep you warm, stylish and on trend this season.

Pretty Pink Present

Mother’s Day is almost here! Have you taken any time to go out and shop? If not, flowers are always a nice gesture. That’s of course if your Mom is a flower kind of girl. If she is, look at this super cute idea. I love that this adorable arrangement comes in a gift box and not the traditional vase. There are only so many vases out there and if you are really into flowers like me, then you probably have your fair share of duplicates. The Pretty Pink Present is a gorgeous bouquet of pretty pink blossoms – nestled snugly inside a gift-wrapped box. The elegant bouquet includes pink Asiatic lilies, hot pink spray roses, light pink Matsumoto asters, pink alstroemeria, pink roses and green button spray chrysanthemums accented with fresh greenery. Delivered in a gorgeous pink gift box accented with green and hot pink water-resistant tissue paper and green ribbon with white polka-dots. Bouquet is about 12 3/4″” W x 12″” H. The perfect arrangement!
