We were fortunate to chat with Aubrie Pagano, the founder and CEO of Bow & Drape:
FC: Do you find you are more popular through this customizable option or through your actual collections?
While "Breathless" is still a film we have to check out, we are constantly reminded about the clothes Jean Seberg wears.

Spring has pretty much sprung, and we're so happy to see greenery and flowers again.

Perhaps it's all the Coachella watching we did this weekend or the fact that the sun stuck around this weekend, but we are definitely in a sunny mood lately.
That means we need sunglasses.
Instead of looking for a few colorful or trendy pair to wear, we want to go for classics. When we think of sunglasses, there are a few shades that always stand out.
Here are out top five:
1. Ray-Ban Wayfarers
These glasses have been manufactured since 1956, and though they were less popular in the '70s, the glasses continue to be worn today. These pair are one of the best selling in history.
2. Chanel Half-Tints
From the Spring 2007 collection, these sunglasses have been seen on Mary-Kate Olsen and Nicole Richie. While, they may not be what everything considers classic, these pair have a spot on this list sheerly because of the number of duplicates we have seen. Plus, we still see half-tinted sunglasses nowadays.
Though Coachella is definitely one of those events I would like to see live one day, I am infinitely grateful for YouTube. I may not be able to check out all the acts I'd like to see, but it's free and I'm much more comfortable than the attendees.
I was also very happy that there was a replay the next day because I ended up falling asleep earlier than I would have liked. Still, I missed some acts, which I'll definitely have to check out later, but here are my impressions on some of the performances I saw over the three days:
1. Of Monsters and Men

It's sunny out, Coachella is right around the corner and your ears deserve some fun music:
Animated series and movies have a special place in our lives.
While we anxiously await the release of "Monsters University," we couldn't help but think of other cartoons we can't get enough of.
"The Legend of Korra"
Though we're all about bright colors at any time of the year, spring tends to bring some of the best prints.
Our cover girl helped us kick off this month with a Milly dress, which was a great mix of print and bold color. And though that was one of our favorite things, she was also attired in a short dress and strappy heels. It's finally time to shed some layers! We've had enough of pants and tights and bulky jackets. It's time for some springtime dresses.
No matter your color preference, style or occasion, here are nine outfits to inspire you for spring:
SHADES OF BLUE
Whether it's a dark shade or something pastel, blue is a great color for spring. Look for super bright tones for something happy or something bordering on purple to ease you into the season.

What is spring without flowers? Year after year, florals are in for spring. Mix up your wardrobe by looking to prints of different sizes.

STILL IN BLACK
If you love black, there's no reason for you to stop wearing it once spring arrives. Instead, look for fun patterns, high hems and something with a bit of pizazz.
