Jodi Arnold for The Limited
We attended an event introducing the new line of Jodi Arnold for The Limited in Tysons Corner, Va. Judging by the hundreds of enthusiastic women there, we'd say it was a success.

Jodi was there personally to introduce the line and describe each of the pieces during the fashion show.

Jodi shared that she grew up shopping at the Limited. Her designer line starts at $300 for a top; but her line for the Limited has tops from $49 and dresses from $98. The pieces were designed to coordinate with The Limited's Spring 2010 Collection.  "My passion for design is driven by love of fabric, texture, and prints," says Jodi, "and my need for newness pushed me to find the next way to evolve my collection for The Limited."

We came home with a couple of tops including this navy t with a removable necklace:

Jodi's easy to wear dresses were a hit.  The tops are cotton and the skirts were silk:
