Everyone is in winter mode right now. Chilly weather, gift shopping, party planning, and outfit changing—here's nothing like December days of holiday cheer. And if you're anything like us, you probably need a tiny break from all the mayhem by having something new and exciting to look forward to: spring and summer! We know, it's a little early to be thinking of mixed prints and micro mini skirts right? Vanessa Bruno sure doesn't think so. R29 has got a sneak peak into the Vanessa Bruno "Flash 'n' Spalsh" Spring/Summer + Resort 2011 collection and we are ever so thankful for the change in pace from heavy knits and monochromatic ensembles to her California Dreamin' line. "Think multi-color prints, flowers in electric shades and neon splashes: one-part Aloha, the other Bel Air circa 1950s." Sassy, eclectic, and colorful, the Vanessa Bruno line will be in stores (already!) next week at the flagship store on Melrose in West Hollywood. It's beginning to look a lot like Spring!
Available in store next week at Vanessa Bruno, 8448 Melrose Avenue (at North Croft Street); 323-655-5300.
