The Styled Side: Easter is now a major shopping holiday

Easter is hopping over the horizon, but it’s more than just a religious holiday – it’s become one of the biggest shopping seasons of the year. “It’s the fourth biggest consumer holiday in terms of retail spending,” says Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily, “and it turns out that this year’s Easter spending is on track to outpace Valentine’s Day.”

The Styled Side: Spring cleaning through consignment

Spring is here, and it’s time to cast off the tired clothes in your closets. But once you’ve got your old duds bagged away, is it worth trading them in for cash? “You can resell them,” says Michelle Dalton Tyree from Fashion Trends Daily, “or you can consign them at a consignment store.”

What’s in style right now isn’t culottes, JNCOs or sweatpants. It’s politics. “It’s Mr. Toad’s wild ride for retailers, right now, as they are going to be increasingly asked – or perhaps forced – to takes sides in this current political climate,” says Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily.

The Styled Side: Pot bouquets for Valentine’s Day

Jewelry, chocolates, a meal at a fancy restaurant. All hallmarks of Valentine’s Day. Now there’s another way to say I love you: a bouquet of marijuana. The cannabis arrangement is produced by Lowell Farms, based in California’s Central Valley. It’s believed this is the first-ever, commercially sold weed bouquet in the U.S.

 

The Styled Side: Looking great with a medical condition

Just because you have a medical condition doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. “I have a somewhat rare congenital condition called May-Thurner Syndrome,” says Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily. “It primarily affects young women who typically have already had a child, and most people don’t know they have it until they have had a massive blot clot.”
