Like, Duh! 90′s Fashion Trends and 90′s Jewelry Trends

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

"Add a fun touch to your look with '90s-inspired slogan bracelets."

Sup, dudes? Has your day been all that and a bag of chips? A slammin’ day? As if! Now don’t you dare bounce, I know you don’t have to dip just yet. You might find these words odd, so you’re buggin’ and think I’m all bunk, but don’t go postal. Aren’t you down with  this? My bad, I didn’t explain! Concept!

I’m speaking with 90’s slang! You know…

  • Oh snap!
  • Whatever
  • Off the heasy
  • Dope
  • Duh
  • Trippin
  • Tight
  • Wicked
  • Not! (or Psych!)
  • Fugly
  • Yo
  • Da bomb
  • Mega
  • Peace
  • Wig Out

To hear most of these 90’s slang words used, we only need to go to one source, the iconic fashion and teenage sensation movie CLUELESS! Alicia Silverstone with the enviable wardrobe, Paul Rudd before anyone liked him, and the adorable Brittany Murphy as a ... Read More

Nikita Fashion a la Maggie Q

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Pilot

For those who fall for the clothing in The CW’s new TV show – there might be a tiny bit of a problem. There’s already a a clothing brand called Nikita. But we’re talking about the CW TV show with Maggie Q.

Nikita’s clothing is mostly comprised of everything black. She also wears silver or shades of gray. Her clothing style is a mix of sexy clothing with casual, sporty gear that lets her move around. To dress like Nikita, merge both ideas. Even her sporty clothing is kind of sexy because it’s body conscious. I’ve included a great pair of black yoga pants, for that reason. I’ve also copied Nikita fashion by using off the shoulder tops, black dresses, and lace-up black boots.

Steal some Nikita fashion with these elements:

How to Dress Like Selena Gomez for Less: Party Look

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

It's time to dress like Selena Gomez!

It's time to dress like Selena Gomez!

I’ll admit it you guys – I’m not young enough to have become a major fan of Selena Gomez. In college I used to watch Lizzie Maguire with Hilary Duff, but I haven’t watched many Disney shows since then. But Selena Gomez seems like a total sweetheart, and a bunch of you have searched for her – so I decided I’d make a post about dressing like one of her recent 2010 outfits. This one is sweet and pretty. And who doesn’t like to look sweet and pretty? (Bad guys in Western movies, Lady Gaga, and my Manhattan-traipsing sister…)If you promise not to call me old, I promise to make this post super stylish.

What I picked were items that are AFFORDABLE. You can dress like Selena Gomez for less on ShesSmart.com, pretties! I found a great white skirt ... Read More

How to Dress Like Nina Dobrev in The Vampire Diaries

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Ready to dress like Nina Dobrev?

Ready to dress like Nina Dobrev?

Am I immune to the unmistakable charm of The Vampire Diaries? Nu uh! I love that friggin show. And Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert on the show is always looking beautiful. In The Vampire Diaries season 2 promo pictures, Dobrev is looking fiercely beautiful and strong.

The accessories I can’t provide you with are two hunky vampire brothers to hold your hands, or a gracefully aging antique home with sunlight gently filtering in to give you a spotlight. Sorry, but you’ll have to somehow create that on your own! Still, you can harness the energy and feeling of standing in the sunlight, posing “just-so” and having two Salvatore brothers lusting after you. Anything is possible.

For this dress, you’re looking for a gold (or metallic) br ... Read More

Rizzoli and Isles Fashion: Dress like Maura Isles

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

rizzoli and isles fashion

We’ve gotten another Rizzoli & Isles fashion request, and who am I to deny it? If you aren’t already watching the show, you definitely should check it out. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander are great actresses, and oh – Rizzoli & Isles clothing is often very stylish. (Maura Isles is my favorite. She has a pet tortoise, for crying out loud! Maura Isles is a fashion icon, too.)

Dear She’s Smart,

My name is Jackie (24 yrs old) and I am a HUGE fan of Rizzoli and Isles. I love your section on how to dress like Maura. She is such a classy and professional dresser. I am now begining my career and would like to model my work wardrobe after hers. My question is concerning a sweater worn by here in “I Kissed a Girl.”

– Jackie

I thought I was so ready to fulfill this challenge. SO ready! But then I realized I’d fallen behind on episodes, and I hadn’t seen the episode she was talking about. And what’s more – I needed to, because she couldn’t find a picture of what she was talking about. Luckily, I didn’t have to go through a bunch of screencaps ... Read More

The Closer Fashion: Smart and Polished

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

brenda leigh johnson clothes

Ellen, 58, wrote to us about admiring the professional style that Kyra Sedgwick wears as Brenda Leigh Johnson on the TV show The Closer. She asked us about finding a contemporary look similar to the Brenda Leigh Johnson clothes on the show. Flowered sundresses aren’t Ellen’s thing at all, but she likes the polished suits (with pants or slim skirts), dresses and jackets. And we can do that, right?

It’s time to take a look at The Closer fashion! And this is great because not only do I enjoy the show, but I’ve previously interviewed the costume designer for The Closer – Greg LaVoi! (He was very nice and incredibly knowledgeable.)

For this request, I’m keeping in mind that our slim reader is under 5’5″. She noted that sometimes certain jackets will make her look shorter. And it’s true, if you’re short then certain items will overpower your frame becuase of the proportions. Eep! For this reason, I’m going to veer away from any billowy or roomy jackets, and go for structured fits.

Keeping in mind her size and budget ideas I was able to find some great stuff simil ... Read More

Dress like Savannah Monroe in Hellcats

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

dress like savannah monroe

On Hellcats, Ashley Tisdale plays the preppy and girly Savannah Monroe. She’s the captain of the Hellcats and full of pep! She likes to wear her school colors, gold jewelry, floral prints, girly colors like pink and purple, and anything pretty. Her Hellcats clothing will probably include a lot of blue and yellow, even when she’s not in uniform. You can see that in her blue and yellow floral dress that she wears in the pilot.

Dress like Savannah on Hellcats with these elements:

How to dress like Marti Perkins on Hellcats in the Pilot

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

UPFRONT 2010

On the new TV series Hellcats (on The CW) Aly Michalka plays Marti Perkins. She’s a seriously edge, hip character with a bit of a tomboy streak. We’re going to look at what she wears when she’s not in her Hellcats uniform. While the series hasn’t premiered yet, there are episode stills out – and because I write about TV I’ve already gotten to see a screener of the first episode. (And it’s a really fun show, so I hope you plan to watch!)

Dress like Marti on Hellcats with these elements:
