aria montgomery clothes

Sometimes, you don’t have to wear the exact same clothes that you see on a character on a TV show. What’s really smart is understanding their style, and buying new pieces (while using the old) to create looks in a similar style.

Showing a little skin is edgy, and just what Aria would do. Maxi dresses? Also up her alley.

New Obsession: Keen Clogs (Review) – I feel like Olivia Pope | UPDATED: Uh, not so fast…

keen clogs mules women's

They were sitting, inconspicuously, in a box at Marshall’s. I almost left them there, but back on my second loop (yes I make a couple loops!) I decided to slip them on. Upon finding that they did fit, I decided to buy them even though they weren’t listed as wide width (which, my big feet always need.)

IMPORTANT UPDATE: THESE CLOGS, ugh. They don’t offer support in a good way…so all the strain goes on the top of your foot when you walk…they gave me (according to my Dr.) tendonitis! IT HURTS. I’ve HAD THIS PAIN FOR THREE MONTHS. Seriously, if they effed up my feet permanently I’m going to cry.

Keen Clogs – NO, NO, NO. Omg no.

Imagine my surprise, a couple weeks later, to realize how much I ADORE these freaking clogs! The brand is Keen. I’d never heard of them before. But I’m so glad that I have, now.

The clogs I got at Marshall’s were $40.00. Another surprise is to see that the retail price for the (I googled to see what it is) “Keen Dawson Clog” is $110.00. Leave it to Marshall’s to give me that kind of deal, right? (I adore Marshalls with ever fiber of my soul. It l ... Read More

Girls Golf Accessories: I actually love this puffy tote bag, and I don’t golf

girls golf bag

Since I don’t golf, what am am I doing falling for a golf bag? I’ll explain how it won me over.

Item: Girls Golf Puffer Tote in Pink Price: $60.00 Colors: Black or Pink

I love the color pink. But, excuse me while I say this, don’t you think this bag is somehow TOO pink? The intensity of the color and the size of this bag really kind of makes me … feel a bit silly. And the only other option is black, which is …black and boring and blah. I wish that there were more options, with a mixture of black with pink stitching, or some sort of geometric pattern…some way to mix these colors. As it stands, I feel like I’m holding the thing and screaming “I’m a GIRLY GIRL” in people’s faces. And I don’t need to scream it. There’s nothing elegant about screaming! Still, I must say that the quality of the bag is really nice…it’s soft and “ploofy” (not a real word, I know) ... Read More

Plus Size Dresses for Wedding Guests and Mother of the Bride or Groom (Beach Wedding Guests)

plus size dresses for beach wedding guests

You might not want to look better than the bride, but that’s no reason not to shine brightly!

I came across a bunch of beautiful plus sized dresses, and thought these would be perfect for mother of the bride or wedding guests for beach themed weddings. The beach-specific ones are the first blue dress and the second and third options. The final two are more the type of dress I’d expect to see on a guest (or MOTB) for a indoor wedding.

Don’t forget to note how important accessories are with these dresses! You can always hop over to RINGOBLOG.COM to look at what rings I’m recommending these days.

designer wedding gowns for plus size women

Plus size women can wear designer wedding dresses that look great. Here are four examples.

Designer Wedding Dresses for Plus Size Women

This firs tone might not be as appealing as you hope if you have a larger bust, so be careful. The lace is a great touch, though.

Instead of covering up your large breasts, why not flaunt them with a scalloped v-neck? We also love the high-low style of the hemline.

This is a perfectly romantic dress.

If you want a little bit of lace, but without losing the glam factor… try this!

Plus Size Designer Dresses – Pinterest Plus Size Fashion

plus size dresses evening

You can absolutely get plus size designer dresses. Here are four I like.

When it comes to plus size designer dresses that have a topical feel that you can wear as a guest to a beach wedding, this is the perfect vibrant dress. You can wear flats with this dress, but pearl pearl jewelry is perfect so don’t opt for anything else! I love the purple straps and the waistline, it really pulls the dress together. It’s like tropical watercolor come to life.

If you like dark gothic fashion, you’ll probably love this one right away. This pinterest plus size fashion piece reminds me of hippies, but haute couture hippies! But I like it, anyway. The top details are great. And accessorizing with a bold black cuff is really fun. The sleek hair and the bold pink lips also work well.

This bright yellow dress will nip you in at the smallest part of your waist and give you a great f ... Read More

Bird Dresses by Tulle have Zooey Deschanel Style Written All Over Them

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

bird dresses

I am so excited to tell you guys about this Birds Button Dress I got. The brand is Tulle, and it’s found at TellStyle.com.

Description: This is one of our most flattering dresses.  Perfect for any season and adorably featuring our favorite bird print.  Pair this piece with hot pink or yellow to make a statement.  In the colder months, throw a blazer over it.

I think it works great when you put a belt on with it. The material for this casual daytime dress feels so silky, as it’s an outer sheer layer and then an inner silky lining. And the cute button details make it feel very sweet. This is definitely a dress that Zooey Deschanel would wear.

Tell Style styled it with the Skinny Tassel Belt-Lazer in Blue, which I really like. I’d pass on the scarf and the platform pumps they used, going for some casual flats and some simple earrings.

Find it here at Tell Style: CLICK

Tell Style stocks brands like Gentle Fawn, Tulle, Blank Denim, and Monrow.
