Why Every Woman Needs These 10 Spring Essentials

Thursday, April 07, 2016

Here it is! I've been working hard to compile this list of top 10 Spring essentials for you just in time for Pesach. Whether staying home or going away, I'm sure there will be something on this list you will love and must have! I have included some of the most popular trends for Spring plus a few new and innovative items that you've probably never seen before.

I have provided links and store information to shop directly from this post. Here we go...

Who wouldn't live in a versatile dress like this all spring, summer, and even fall? This denim dress by Japparel is available right now at From Head to Hose (718-692-0820), along with a whole slew of amazing spring dresses plus all the shells, hosiery and accessories you need to create all your easy outfits from 'head to hose'.

(Brand new product!)

Here's a brand new innovative product that we've all needed for so long! This patented travel wig head is so brilliant: It's lightweight (perfect for air travel), breaks down easily fitting into a small pouch, is adjustable for any wig length, and holds the shape of your wig beautifully. Imagine no more scrunched up wigs on hotel dressers anymore. To see exactly how it works, watch the Destination Wig demo video HERE and get yours now HERE.

3. LillyBelle Shells
(Brand new! Modeled by Nikki Taranda)
How many of us are on 'shell' strikes?? We just flat out refuse to wear shells under our dresses and tops anymore. I mean why take a gorgeous dress and ruin it with Plain Jane sausage arms?? OK, I'm being a little extreme here, but the designers of LillyBelle shells really hit on something brilliant. What if we could experience the smooth and comfortable benefits of a layering shell, only with gorgeous sleeves that actually enhance our outfits? Brilliant? Yes! These gorgeous shells come in both white and black with new sleeve designs coming out for the summer. They are currently available at these locations:

5. A Pair of Multi Colored Shoes
It's amazing how a pair of great shoes will finish an outfit and literally change everything. Add a pop of wow to all your basic spring looks with a pair of multi-colored shoes.

The longer days and brighter sunshine may be great for our mood, but they're not so great for our skin. Combat all your sun damage, discoloration, melasma, and sunspots and maintain your gorgeous glow throughout the summer by using the regimen that changed my skin and got me hooked onto Rodan+Fields in the first place. Add the AMP MD roller for even better results. These products are powerful and will get you glowing or you get your money back. And Rodan+Fields, created by the doctors who created ProActiv, is now the second largest skincare company in the world! Order the regimen HERE or email me at ask.fashionisha@gmail.com for your personal skin consultation or to have me explain the products and place the order for you. Customers who sign up as preferred customers will get a free gift from me too. Looking forward to letting me help your skin!

8. SevenTwoDenim Skirts In Spring's Pastel Colors
If there's one skirt you buy this season, it should be a SevenTwoDenim, available at Maya's Place, in one (or all) of their spring 2016 delicious sorbet inspired colors. You will live in these fresh and easy skirts that can be dressed up with a pretty blouse and heels, or dressed down with a t-shirt and sneakers. I can't wait to show you how I style mine. Follow SevenTwoDenim and Maya's Place on Instagram.

9. A braid clip or headband by Justbraydzbychaya
This is a great way to summer-ize your wigs! Simply slip the braid headband over your wig (or hair) and transform your look. When it gets warm, pull some hair away from your face and pin over the braid band for a cool off-the-face summer look. The clip on braid (not seen here, but check it out on my Instagram or at justbraydzbychaya on Instagram) is a great addition to any wig, or for under hats and caps all year long.

10. A leggings/skirt set by my new line AbsTrakt by Fashionisha

Although not available yet, I could not leave out my new line: AbsTrakt by Fashionisha, the next big thing in concept dressing! Because everyone's either into working out or looking like they do, I wanted to add a little bit of glamour and versatility to the casual-wear trend.  Imagine cool and edgy leggings that look great at the gym and also dressed up under matching skirts or your favorite frocks. There will also be funky coordinates like matching tops, a dramatic peplum hoodie and an asymmetrical hoodie dress. As someone who goes from the gym to work to the city to the grocery store, and wears skirts over her leggings, I felt the need for something exciting and fresh in this arena. It's about time we have a little fun and add a bit of couture to workout wear, don't you think? Stay posted for details of the launch.

Please let me know how you enjoyed this list and which items you must have!

Have a great day,
