It’s retro and fashionable with the touch of Camo. We also love the Peacock Tee. The design is both eye catching and comfortable. These high fashion shirts are soft, cool, and comfortable. These are extremely fitted and we suggest buying a size larger. Did we mention the great price?

Top 5 MUST HAVE Items For Spring 2006

Artfulwears style expert, Amy Gordon presents you her must have list for Spring 2006.

  1. A Gaucho Walking short is number one on our MUST HAVE list. We love the Blue Dot Tootsie Gaucho. The supple material and vivid Avocado pack a lot of punch. The wide leg and medium rise compliment almost every figure. Pair it up with any neutral color tank, your favorite pair of sandals, and we assure that you will stop traffic. If these aren’t the perfect ones for you, try everybody’s favorite XCVI. They have some great styles and colors.
  2. Next up is the Bella Skirt by Ronen Chen. This Israeli designer is a master of creating slimming lines for any body type. Whether you are a size 0 or a size 14, this skirt will make you look HOT.
  3. Always on our  MUST HAVE list is the Karine Dupont Mini K33 handbag. Choose a great Spring color that will add a gorgeous touch to any outfit. This is Artfulwears best selling bag. It’s versatile and functional. With three removable pouches and an adjustable strap, it can take you out for a night on the town or a trip to Europe.
  4. The Long Circle Necklace by 2 Sisters Designs will work with just about any outfit. If you are only going to buy one piece of jewelry this season, we suggest this one.  It can be worn long or short and the simple design makes it extremely versatile.
  5. Last but not least, we think EVERYONE needs the Rezerekshn Collapsing Tank in White. It can be worn several different ways, making it great to pair with just about any bottom in your wardrobe. The soft jersey fabric is not only cool and comfortable, but easy to wash as well.

What’s Hot For Spring ‘06, the premiere online luxury women’s boutique, is proud to present you the Spring 2006 “What’s Hot” style guide.  We will give you a head start on shopping for your perfect spring wardrobe. Plus, we will give you a look at our favorite new finds! We specialize in hip and funky fashions for women of all ages and sizes.

First and foremost: CAMOUFLAGE! Every designer has something in his or her line in Camouflage.  Our favorites for spring are the Corset Waist skirt and the various Cargo Walking Shorts in camo from XCVI.  But keep in mind; this is not just your Army type of camouflage. It’s hip, modern, and fresh! The Corset Waist Skirt is a patchwork of ivory combined with a pale yellow camo. The shorts can be found in pink or grey camouflage, just as an example.

Next on our list is walking shorts. They are HOT, plain and simple. Artfulwears will be getting some in from Blue Dot, XCVI, and many more. You loved the Da Nang Mango short last year and we assure, you will love these just as much!

If you are looking for a fun pant, we found a new designer, Inspira. Made from a polyester that is washable and feels like silk, we love these pants because they don’t wrinkle. Choose from a soft natural camouflage or a nice khaki with beautiful detailing. Or perhaps, all over camo isn’t for you. Try a tee by Awake with just a touch of camouflage and a touch of bling.

Next up on our must have hot list are tee shirts. The once basic tee is back in many new looks. Try a fitted tee with unique and colorful designs, batik, deep v-neck,  a little bit jeweled,  burn out detailing, layered, or any fun combination of the above. We will be featuring tee shirts by Language Los Angeles, XCVI, Kut and more.

Priorities brings “Hawaiian Fashion” into a modern, sleek, and sexy new look. Their cotton is specially washed to make it paper thin and ultra-soft. Each design has a gorgeous Hawaiian themed print in a sophisticated design. We love their sun dress, long sleeve hooded dress, and their amazing tee shirts. Some feature unique burn out designs and don’t forget the cartoon characters, cool enough for everybody.

Also, hot for Spring are Cordelia’s ethnic skirts blending style & sophistication. Each one is uniquely appointed with a variety of fun details including: corset waist, beading, embroidery,  camouflage and more. We love the cut and colors in these skirts. Dress them up, dress them down, pair them with boots, or pair them with sandals. They are versatile and stylish.

What’s hot in accessories? Chan Luu’s Spring line of jewelry blends leather and stones in a creative and fresh style. We love the geode necklace and the wrap leather bracelets.  We will be featuring a new designer, Heidi J. Hale, whose work mixes metal, stones, and leather for a clean yet feminine approach to jewelry. Choose from a great assortment of necklaces and unique anklets.

Fantastic Fall Fashion With Comfort

As the weather cools down, we at are excited to warm up in luxurious fabrics. We have picked some pieces that will keep you warm and cozy as you look outside at the beautiful fall colors!

Our first outstanding fall picks are cashmere by Barbara Who (a division of Harari). We have two wrap pieces that can double as skirts. Choose from a midnight blue with floral accents or a combination of warmer tones. Each of these pieces is 22” from top to bottom and has snaps across the top. Not only is it the softest cashmere we have ever touched, it’s versatile and practical!

Or if you are more of a traditionalist try the Suburst Wrap in rich orange tones with a touch of olive. Unlike a more traditional poncho, this piece has a nice body hugging fit. Last, we have a Smoke Cardigan and matching tank. Pair this with a great pair of jeans for a more casual look or a skirt for an evening out.

For the woman looking for the perfect errand running lounge wear, The Factory has the answer to your prayers. Made from a bi-stretch felpa that feels like suede, it looks stylish and feels great on your body. A modern cut line, the pants have a low rise. Choose from three great color combinations: slate blue/hot pink, smoke/white, or black/hot pink. Perfect for the modern woman on the go!

Don’t forget accessories. They are a must to complete any outfit. We are going to suggest a few budget minded items that will go a long way in your wardrobe. We suggest the Chan Luu Beaded Scarf. It’s the hottest accessory on the market and compliments any outfit as a belt or a scarf. Or try a combination of these fantastic Alexia Crawford Bangles. Choose from Silver, Red, or Tan. Mix and match them in any combination to complete your look.

We wish you all a fantastic fall season. If you have any questions or require personal assistance, we are happy to assist. Please email us at

If you are looking for a truly unique skirt, look no further than the Jeweled Ethnic Skirt by Soya. Made of a soft cotton fabric in gorgeous Earth tones, it is a perfect knee length. A slight angled cut at the top creates a slimming effect. It is finished off with unique jewel embellishments. This high-fashion line features several other piece that are equally fantastic: Sheer Sparkle Top, India Inspired Tunic, and the Sparkle Skirt.

Before you go, don’t forget to check out the awesome beaded sandals. Choose from the simple Kokimo thong with fun colorful beads or the more ornate Romeo Turquoise beaded thong.
