One retailer that caught me by surprise was Dallas-based brand Fossil. Before this year, a lot of the collections were a bit too high school bohemian for my taste, but the current collection has some pieces that are on trend and a nice break from the riot of stripes that every other store is featuring for Spring.
I am going to check out that pin dot bow blouse at the store by my office, although I doubt I'll $78 like it. Hopefully they do markdowns!
Are there any other brands surprising you this year?
