get set, get ready, go

An illustration I did, used for a Spring Mailer

Get set, get ready!  Are you prepared for spring?  Are you anticipating sporting a new item that puts spring in your step?  Growing up one of seven, new outfits were "hand me downs" or perhaps linked to a special occasion or holiday.   I remember a Spring Plaid of yellow and green that my mother made for me, a cape with chic slits that I could put into my sheath dress and I loved my flat black patent leather shoes with white square buckles.  Boy was I ready for spring and a basket full of "peeps!"  Now, go get set for a stylish spring. 
What will you be wearing this Spring?

That dress on the right looks like something I might need to have. :) Although hard to imagine it could look as nice in person as it does in your lovely portrayal.

Unfortunately I will be wearing my hot pink crocs until someone, anyone comes by, ripps them off my feet and burns them. I KNOW they're UGLY, but I am addicted to the comfort. Help?

I love that illustration! Nice work indeed, and good timing--we're all ready for something springy I think!

Ooh, so pretty! And my dad's name was Jeff McLaughlin, so that company always makes me laugh.

I'm on the search, I think, for complimentary shorts--is there such a thing?? Hee-hee!
