Fabulous Flowers

At last, spring has sprung! Temperatures are warming, birds are singing, and flowers are FINALLY blooming here in Richmond! But here at Suited for Success it’s always springtime...

Spring is all about accessorizing, and you can’t go wrong with these gorgeous sparkly baubles. 

Mother’s Day is coming up soon- why give mom a bouquet that will wilt and die when you could give her one of these gorgeous rings that will shine and make her smile and think of you whenever she wears it?

Let’s face it- you can’t wear a show-stopper ring like this without everyone telling you, “OMG, I LOVE your ring!” 

Never worn one before? Trust us. It’s true. Just ask Hillary Duff or Dannii Minogue...



Or maybe you want to wear your flowers around your neck with a statement necklace like this one (pair it with a crisp button-up blouse and you’ll look totally fresh and put together)...

But if you really want to make a statement, then go for a fun Hawaiian print like this fantastic carryall:

Or you can wear your flowers in unexpected places with a cute pair of shoes like these gorgeous lavender and plum peep toe pumps...

Just remember, Suited For Success has a huge selection of fabulous jewelry and accessories you can’t find anywhere else! Come by and let us help you select something totally unique for Mom for Mothers Day or pick out a flowery little something for yourself... ;-)

Happy Spring, everyone!

Scarfin’ It Up!

Last week we talked about how layering is a great way to handle Mother Nature’s spring mood swings.   But when you’re layering, don’t forget to add this fabulous essential: SCARVES!

You might think that scarves are just for the fall, but they are the perfect springtime accessory. Get a nice lightweight one like this gauzy smoky blue number...

...and wear it wrapped around your neck or shoulders in the chilly mornings. As the day goes on, you can loosen it, even tie it around your bag for a cute accessory.

If you’re feeling springy, this sassy pink number will have you blooming like a rose!

Pair it with some colorful stripes on this bag and you’ll be set for spring.

If you want to tone it down for a more sophisticated look, go for some earthier tones like this lightweight butterscotch scarf:

Lovin’ the Layers!

Spring has FINALLY come to Richmond! But as we all know, that means cooler mornings and warmer afternoons, plus Mother Nature’s random and unpredictable hot flashes and cold spells thrown in from week to week. What’s a fashionista to do? 

No worries- Suited For Success has a huge selection of stylish jackets and blazers that are PERFECT for layering with your spring wardrobe. And if you wear them right, they can take your outfit from so-so to sophisticated!

Here’s our mannequin, whom we’ve lovingly nicknamed Quinn, rocking a great layered look with a tweed blazer in feminine spring colors. You can dress it up with some business slacks or keep it casual with jeans, like Quinn. Rolling up the blouse sleeves over the jacket and pushing it up to your elbows gives it a current style that’s anything but frumpy.

Check out some more great blazers and jackets in store and imagine the possibilities:

This one would be amazing with a soft pink blouse and pearls- perfect for a special occasion.

Set off the flowers on this one with a crisp white blouse underneath, or even use it to dress up just a plain white tee! Awesome for a shopping date with the girls.

Got anything in green to bring out the fun colors in this mod jacket? Pair it with some rain boots to brighten a gloomy day.

This amazing print has FUN written all over it. Who needs summer sun when you can dress like Hawaii?

Oh, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to accessorize...

And remember, at Suited For Success you will NEVER pay full price! Get brand name, like new items to spruce up your style at a fraction of the cost of retail.
