Outfit of the week - $150 or less!

Is this rainy weather giving you the blues? This week's outfit will add a much needed splash of color to the dreary forecast. The blouse has a great neckline which means you can keep accessories to a minimum and the lightweight skirt will look good with the rest of your spring staples (basic white t-shirt and a great pair of wedges.) The t-straps are especially fun because the classic shape comes in a bold color and texture. These shoes also work with muted tones and are comfy enough to enjoy a night out dancing.

Zara cherry bubble blouse $29.95
Banana Republic sky blue silk skirt $26.95
Miss Sixty pewter t-straps $36.95
Nine West oversized purse $48.95

Trend: Nudes


Nudes were seen all over the Spring & Summer 2010 runways this year. Nude on nude tones were especially popular. If you're weary of a nude head-to-toe look you can punch up your outfit with bright colors instead. Here are a few pieces in Current's Arlington location that can easily be integrated into your wardrobe.

(Stella McCartney linen jacket $84.95 )

This Stella McCartney jacket is practical because it can be worn with just about anything (think flowy dress to trousers and everything in between.)

(Ark + Co. dress $78.95 )

This great Ark + Co. dress is super feminine and can easily make the transition from day to night. At the office throw on a coral cardigan and at night pair the dress with gold jewelry and heels.

Outfit of the Week - $150 or less!

This week's outfit is a perfect blend of bright colors and lightweight fabrics to keep you cool in the warming temperatures. Mix and match the tank with dark rinse jeans for a night out on the town or pair the skirt with a nude colored t-shirt for weekend errands and brunch.

Banana Republic floral silk skirt $34.95
Steve Madden buckle pumps $46.95
Floral cluster earrings $20.95

Orem SBDC wins Small Business Development Center Service Excellence and Innovation Center Award

As an owner and operator of a successful Utah Valley tire chain, Ken Fakler learned first-hand the challenges and difficulties of small business ownership. Now, as managing director of the Orem Small Business Development Center (Orem SBDC), Fakler uses his vast experience to help other entrepreneurs navigate the same choppy waters. Helping prospective and existing business owners in Utah and Wasatch counties, Fakler's know-how has been especially valuable during the recent economic downturn, where credit has been tighter than a drum.
The Orem SBDC offers no-cost small business counseling and low-cost training for both pre-startup and existing businesses in its territory. Its dedicated, professional staff collaborate closely with community economic resources and partners in providing workshops, trainings, expos, and marketing events.
Under the oversight of its director, Steve Clark, the Orem SBDC has become a highly prolific service center producing significant economic impact. In 2009, the center counseled 500 new and existing business clients, helped 44 of the new clients start businesses and helped these small businesses in obtaining more than $6.2 million in capital infusion.
Key services provided by the Orem SBDC include capital access and marketing. Center personnel help clients conduct market research, develop business plans and apply for loans. Counselors aid existing business owners with specialty training products such as Covey's 7 Habits for Business Managers, Dashboard and 360 Survey. The center can also tap into a strong network of small-business experts and resources in other service centers within the Utah Small Business Development Center system.
