GINGHAM, the checked cotton fabric popularized by icons such as Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Bridget Bardot in the 50's and 60's is BACK!

Why I love it? It is so easy to wear and can add a little flair no matter how you style it! There are so many choices to choose from; easy breezy dresses, casual shirts, blouses, pencil or midi skirts, crop tops, bistro pants and so much more.

Wear it to an event, wedding, business meeting, beach on a hot summers day or even on a local bike ride! Pair with denim, cotton, dress it up or down!

This is one of the must have pieces for Spring/Summer 2015!
