#128 Ashley on 2010-03-18 19:09
My spring must-haves are simple, comfortable, stylish dresses. That Nude Look Dress is perfect! I confess, if I don't win I'll probably have to buy it...
#129 Rayna77 on 2010-03-18 19:25
This season has met, then exceeded my every expectation. From all of the flattering silhouettes and gorgeous designs/prints/colors, "pretty" is truly back in style.
If I had to choose a spring must-have, for me it would be a simple, sophisticated (most likely floral or a nice soft navy) a-line skirt.
There's nothing like it for a clean, put-together look that looks and feels great, and paired to together with a pretty wedge or gladiator sandal, embellished top and scarf, you really can't go wrong!
#130 Vanessa C. on 2010-03-18 19:38
Anything with floral print. Also, I love the necklace on Mark's homepage!
#131 Kat on 2010-03-18 19:40

#137 Dina's Days (Homepage) on 2010-03-18 20:28
My spring must-have would have to be the mark Print Condition Scarf shown above! Not only will it add color to any outfit, it would go great with a pair of platform clogs I just added to my wardrobe.

I love this look! I'm so excited for spring. My spring must haves would definitely be khaki shorts, floral tops, and that gorgeous nude arm candy bag!
#139 Vi on 2010-03-18 20:48
My spring must-haves are definitely a long pretty scarf and a pair of flirty sandals and can't forget oversized sunglasses :-)
#140 donna (Homepage) on 2010-03-18 20:48
My spring must have is a fun printed scarf, such as the Print Condition scarf above! It's a great way to dress up old favorites (in fact I have the perfect purple dress in mind...). I also am looking forward to getting my hands on fun summery dresses :-)
#141 Katy on 2010-03-18 20:49
I think the Vintage Bloom Ring in cream is my spring must have! It would go with everything!!! So pretty!

I love the Mark midi cosmetic bag-and that nude dress!!!
#144 April (Homepage) on 2010-03-18 21:12
My must-have for spring is a floral scarf! I'd wear one to add a splash of color to a neutral outfit, soften up an edgy dress, try out the mixed prints trend by pairing it with a striped shirt, or simply to give me a little warmth on cooler days. (Not to mention, it serves as an excellent cover-up for those inevitable post-spring break tan lines!)
#145 Miranda on 2010-03-18 21:15
Great styling! Love them all.
For spring i NEED nude heels. Need them.
#146 Alicia on 2010-03-18 21:19

#148 Alice on 2010-03-18 21:41
Oooh, please pick me!!!! LOVE that dress... may need to buy it regardless. My must haves? Anything navy & white striped, bright colored flat sandals, and floaty nude/neutral colored dresses.

#149 Perfectionist in Rehab (Homepage) on 2010-03-18 21:41
Darn US only?? :-( Oh well, I just want to wish you a happy 3rd anniversary!! Your blog is always an essential read of mine and I love your style :-)

#151 Lisa on 2010-03-18 22:28
I'm super excited about nautical colors and stripes for Spring! It just feels really fresh after the dreary colors of winter!
#152 Christina on 2010-03-18 22:32
I love scarves for the spring time & florals are EVERYWHERE right now, so I'm loving mark's print condition scarf! You can dress it up or down and even use it as an impromptu head wrap for a convertible ride! lol

Happy 3 yr anniversary!
#153 Valerie Landquist (Homepage) on 2010-03-18 22:34
I love the Leader of the Rack dress!

My other spring must have is a new pair of boat shoes.
#154 Victoria on 2010-03-18 22:41
What a fabulous giveaway! I have been looking for something to add to my wardrobe to rock the nude trend. I love the nude look dress-it is perfect!
#155 Christina on 2010-03-18 22:44
Not only is the dress absolutely adorable but so is the rest they have to offer! I really love funky jewlery to go with my dresses and outfits. so I especially enjoyed the glisten up ring because it would go great with that nude dress in particular :-) Congratulations on your anniversary! Great job!
#156 Fiorella on 2010-03-18 23:29

#157 Janet ♥ on 2010-03-18 23:41
I am wanting a Michael Kors purse..
#158 shopfreak on 2010-03-19 00:21
I'm really crazy for the flower rings, especially the green one! It seems like such a great pop of color to the nude/pale trend for spring.
Happy 3 year anniversary!!
#159 Andrea on 2010-03-19 00:25
Illuminating powders! My favorite would be mark's "shimmied up". My fashion-musts would center around sunshine and brightness; yellow eyelids and brightening moisturizers ("see things clearly).
#160 Claudia H. on 2010-03-19 00:36
the vintage bloom ring is fun
#161 Carolyn on 2010-03-19 00:58

THank you!!!!
#162 Grace on 2010-03-19 01:08
My spring must have is a pair of skyhigh, nude, patent leather pumps. Preferably with a little platform. I`m still searching for them.
Ps. I really want to win this one!!!
#163 Sarah Sosa on 2010-03-19 01:36
whoa, i had absolutely no idea mark also sold apparel and bags! with that said, it's not a huge selection, so i'm definitely into either the arm candy bag also in nude (hellooooo affordable chanel styling) or i'm actually very curious to try the luscious lip stain! been looking for a gloss type option that isn't obviously a caked on "long wearing" product.
#164 Kay W. (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 01:39
well if i have to choose one thing it will be the nude color tone in bags or clothes, but i have to say that "mark arm candy bag in beige" is so going to be in my closet soon!=D
#165 Nada Gamil on 2010-03-19 04:35
i love the spring must have is sunglasses...i always have them with me!
#166 melissa on 2010-03-19 06:00
the mark arm candy in beige is such a great way to make a basic stand out. i love it!
#167 Christine on 2010-03-19 06:46
i actually really like the dress and rings featured here, but the modern metal necklace would be my pick!
#168 becca on 2010-03-19 06:51
Mine would have to be the All Checked Out top--it looks like it would be great either as an oversized tunic or styled as a jacket. I'm definitely more of a jeans girl than a skirt girl, and I get cold easily, so layering pieces this time of year is a must!
#169 Becky (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 06:57
Wow, I didn't know mark had all those cool things! I love that Nude Dress-a must for sure!
#170 Ashley on 2010-03-19 07:53

#174 Mal on 2010-03-19 08:58
The Floral Scarf!!! Finally it's Spring, and early enough where I can still wear a scarf without being too much! I've been waiting all winter to wear the floral scarf! Plus, the colors make me happy! :-)
Happy 3rd Birthday BB!
#175 Erica on 2010-03-19 08:59

#182 Kim on 2010-03-19 09:29

#183 Kristen (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 09:36
my spring must have fashion would be to add some type of floral to my outfits. i'm not really into the big big big floral dresses or skirts but maybe a pretty floral ring or a bracelet. i like to add little touches of spring to my outfit. i don't want to overdo it.
#184 cynthia on 2010-03-19 09:36
I love something a little nautical for spring!!
#185 Everydaychic NY (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 09:45
I would have to say that for me the spring must haves are floral print dresses, blush colored wedges and purse to match, and of course a white blazer!
#186 Sara Azani (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 10:00

#194 Tatiana on 2010-03-19 11:08
nude colored accessories!
#195 Meghan on 2010-03-19 11:23
A pretty floral print scarf is perfect for spring and really dresses up a plain-colored outfit!
#196 Emilia on 2010-03-19 11:29
I love the versatility of the Nude Look dress. I like being able to style a piece for various occasions. Especially with a pop of color, a statement necklace, a classic bag, or a pretty floral scarf. I'm loving this look!
#197 Moira on 2010-03-19 11:32

#203 Sil on 2010-03-19 12:22
spring must-have is definitely that floral scarf - so light and pretty and easy to wear!
#204 Connie on 2010-03-19 12:31
Spring is all about refreshing, renewing and rejuvenating. Which this outfit is! I love the masterful balance of the outfit that is somewhere between classicism and current fashion. The short length of the dress looks sweet without being chichi. With a pair of nude pumps to really elongate the legs would be perfect. This spring it's all about the scarf, whether knotted around the head or bunched around the neck. The style this spring is also all fanciful dressing and nothing says that better than these whimsical rings. The beige purse is a refreshing color after the heaviness of the wintry jewel tones. Love it!!! Happy Bday BB!
#205 Michelle Guenther on 2010-03-19 12:39
I love this entire look! But the bag is the best - so versatile and classic!
#206 Annie on 2010-03-19 12:40
Must have is the perfect skirt!!!!!!
Something that speaks SPRING and one that can be versatile for a day at the beach and then a night out for dinner =)
#207 erykah on 2010-03-19 13:01

I have to go with the Nude Look Dress. There is just so much you could do with it, so many different ways to where it.
#209 Lori on 2010-03-19 13:23
The modern metal necklaces are great!
#210 Ying Woo-Clark on 2010-03-19 13:29
I love all the spring finds on but my favorite has to be the purple mark A Little Twisted Bag. For Spring, I think this bag would be perfect!

Happy anniversary!
#211 Michelle Moreno (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 13:45

#217 Michelle on 2010-03-19 15:32
It's got to be that dress!
#218 MissusClaus on 2010-03-19 16:06
#219 Nicole on 2010-03-19 16:07
Statement Rings like the Vintage Bloom Rings are perfect for spring and one can never go wrong with a cute dress!

I cannot get enough scarves. They are like a drug to me! And seeing this mark one makes me realize that I really do need a great floral one!
#221 Jackie on 2010-03-19 18:19
Wow its all super cute! A flower print dress is definitely a spring must this year. :-)
#222 Trude (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 18:23
My spring must-have is definitely statement jewelry.

Now that I don't need gloves to brave the cold, I'm planning to pile on bold chunky rings - like the Ironclad ring.
#223 Meg on 2010-03-19 18:29
Love everything here. Spring must-have - a bright purse, which is why I just got one from Target in hot pink.
#224 Ileana on 2010-03-19 19:02
My spring must have? Flirty, feminine florals! Especially dresses, but I'm also loving that Mark scarf.
#225 Sara (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 20:52
Wow, how cute is THAT dress?
I'm definitely on the prowl for a sexy sweet bag like the arm candy bag. Unfortunately for me, all my bags are huge and clunky so they can hold my books and that extra scarf, pen, mirror, tissues, water name it.
Fingers crossed!
#226 W (Homepage) on 2010-03-19 21:50

#230 Nikki on 2010-03-20 00:58
Cute, floral headbands are a must! :]
#231 Carrie on 2010-03-20 01:40
I'd go for the petal headband or the nude dress. The fabric looks light, which is just perfect for spring. I never knew you could buy mark online....always thought you needed to have a representative.
#232 Jodie on 2010-03-20 05:18
Must have: short flowy skirts and gladiator sandals.
#233 Leah (Homepage) on 2010-03-20 10:47

#236 Ani on 2010-03-20 12:46

#238 Good Girl Gone Blog (Homepage) on 2010-03-20 17:35
Some cute summery sandals
#239 Sara M on 2010-03-20 18:24

#244 Ysenia Ramirez on 2010-03-21 02:34
Flowy Floral Dresses & a pair of sunglasses - so the Soho shades are perfect.
#245 JULIE (Homepage) on 2010-03-21 04:09

Love love love these looks! My fave spring must-have is the mark print condition scarf! Goes with everything!
#247 Jessica on 2010-03-21 12:29
My spring must have is the same as my winter must have. After paying 300 bucks for riding boots I'm getting the most out of these things! Cutesty feminine dresses and flowy tops with well worn brown riding boots.
#248 Amanda on 2010-03-21 14:05
I love wearing a simple white tshirt with jeans and adding interesting jewelry. The modern metal necklace or one of the vintage rings would look great and I love the simple look!
#249 abby on 2010-03-22 09:37
I'd love to have the Nude Lock Dress!
#250 Emilie on 2010-03-22 10:06

#251 Shelley Sweet on 2010-03-22 10:07
Cute!! My must have would be that nude purse - that would look so great with dresses and cardigans/jeans!!
#252 chloe on 2010-03-22 10:16
I'm looking for nude purse...but a good nude color that's not too pale and not too brown seems really hard to find.
#253 Rachel on 2010-03-22 10:58
I am all about wearing neutrals with a pop of floral this spring. Neutrals are easy to wear and easy to accessorize.
#254 Tiffany B on 2010-03-22 11:25
I really want to try the folded up jean shorts with the boots look, I saw that in a magazine recently and thought it looked comfortable yet stylish.
#255 Justine on 2010-03-22 19:25
Spring must have: A little twisted bag in white!! How cute ;D
#256 styleezta (Homepage) on 2010-03-23 01:30
My spring must haves are oversized shades plus a colorful scarf. I love how a scarf can instantly update any outfit, taking it from winter to spring, especially on those "in-between" days.
#257 Erin on 2010-03-23 08:36
I LOVE that nude look dress, but I just ordered the 'all checked out' plaid tunic as well to wear with white jeans or shorts this summer.. I live in dresses and white jeans in the summer!
#258 AliciaS on 2010-03-23 12:44
i would say my spring must have would be dresses! the nude dress is beautiful!
#259 melissa (Homepage) on 2010-03-24 00:41
Nothing screams spring more than the colors of the rainbow -- red, orange yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet!

I am in love with all things bright and happy so I always try my best to dress colorful. Scarves are perfect accessories to add to my spring must haves. :-)
#260 hanniebon on 2010-03-24 15:02

#263 grace on 2010-03-24 22:21
My spring must-haves include anything with florals, or in the nude palette! The nude dress and floral scarf are so perfect!
#264 Suzy on 2010-03-24 23:48
Here in New England, my number one can't live without Spring Must Have is my light weight
Scarfs. Here, it's cold into mid April so
I still need my winter sweaters time to time
but the the scarfs bright colors really make
me feel good, bright, and light. Like Spring!
Combining the Bright Scarfs, Spring make-up
and Bright natural nail polish I feel like a
million dollars! This outfit above would fit
in perfectly with my spring look. It would be
perfect for the office or on the go. I think
it's very cute! I really need a wardrobe
boosts this week :-) To many more years of
sucess Budget Babe.
#265 Ashley on 2010-03-25 09:25
My spring must have is anything floral!! I love MARK! They have the cutest accessories!
#266 Amber (Homepage) on 2010-03-25 13:50
My Spring Must have is three-fold: bright, bold jewlelry pieces (like mark's Mix Me Bracelets), statement purses (this quilted one is a ringer for it) and towering sandal heels! Mix those all together and you can't go wrong!

happy anniversary xx
