I’ve loved BCBG from even before what I knew much about the line. Max Azria has a daughter and her bedroom was featured in Seventeen Magazine when I was a teen who got that magazine. All of her clothing was mostly black and white, organized in a huge closet. And her room was mostly all white, except her Dad had encouraged her to paint her bedroom walls yellow… Anyway – I just remember loving her room and wishing my Dad was also a fashion designer. Which…would be hilarious because his idea of style is changing into clean jeans. Cue an eye roll here.

These days, BCBG Max Azria dresses are sought after for their style and fit. I really wish there was a BCBG Max Azria outlet near me, but alas there is not. But, ... Read More

Online Shopping at “Anique Michelle” (Discount Code for Readers!)

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

vest on sale

I was recently told about a great online shop called Anique Michelle, which features items that are both stylish and affordable. Nothing in the shop is over $60.00 – that’s what we like to hear! The owner of the shop, Anique, says, “I am very passionate that style doesn’t have to cost a lot and it is my goal with Anique Michelle to provide stylish clothing, jewelry and accessories at an affordable price.” And while many people claim they want to do this, Anique actually does.

If you don’t have access to an H&M (which has stylish items at low prices) then this is your next best bet! And in fact, since so many people do have access to an H&M store, and we want unique items – this is actually your er, first best bet. 😛

All items from this online boutique are shipped out within two days of receiving the order, and the shipping time is usually 2-5 days. The packaging is supposedly awesome because it comes in a wine-colored mesh bag with a thank you gift of ring pops or a candy necklace/bracelet. You won’t need to worry about cute Christmas gift wrapping if you order from here.

Because Anique knows that she’s smart readers like good deals, she has generously provided a discount code for you all to use, valid through the end of November so you can do early Christmas shopping. ... Read More

Marilyn Monroe Fashion for Parties

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

for ShesSmart.com

I’ve put together two party looks for a fun, flirty party this winter 09. Each look was inspired by glamor, kind of like Marilyn Monroe. But updated for a modern party girl who likes the golden age of Hollywood. You’ll see that I paired a satin corset (one is a pleated corset and one is a ruched corset but both are from Charlotte Russe!) with a fun black skirt. One black skirt is a mesh tiered number by Forever 21, and the other is a bubble skirt from Forever 21. Each look got a faux fur shrug, a tiara element (either an actual tiara or a clip for the hair with a tiara symbol), nail polish and black liquid eyeliner.

Black liquid eyeliner is great for a glamorous look, especially for parties. Singer Taylor Swift is always using black eyeliner (winged just a bit out on the edges) on just the tops of her eyelids. It really brings some definition to your eyes. And as always, everything in this look is under $100.00!

Some of Items in this set (to view all click the picture): ... Read More
