Look Thinner with Colorblock Dresses and Colorblock Skirts

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

colorblock dresses on sale

The use of colorblock in clothing is genius. It can really trick the eye into making you look a lot more thin and shapely than you are. I was realizing this the other day when Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) was wearing a colorblock dress on Gossip Girl and it made her waist look so nipped and fit. When you type or say colorblocking enough times, it starts looking and sounding weird. But the actual color blocking effect? It’s genius!

How does colorblocking work? Visual magic! It uses blocks of color to shape you. As you know, white looks larger and black makes things look smaller. But more than that, you can actually sculpt the form using wide lines or thin lines of color down the middle of a dress. Be smart: color block!

Bargain News! Sweater Dresses on Sale

sweaterdresses on sale

I love sweater dresses. But sweaters are expensive. And dresses are expensive. So much sweater dresses are – you must be a genius because you guessed it – expensive. But I worked to find you sweater dresses on sale for under $100.

Sweater dresses for fall are perfect to wear all the time. You can also wear them for winter, these sweater dresses are great with boots and tights.  Sweater dresses and tights? Love it. Sweater dresses and boots? Love it.

Victoria’s Secret is loaded with sweater dresses, but most of them are 1) Way too form fitting/sexy to want to wear without being self-conscious, 2) Way too expensive! This is why Victoria’s Secret Sweater Dresses are mostly a no-go for me. However I did find one that I like a lot and included down below, it’s a gorgeous chocolate brown color and looks like it would move well. It has enough detail to make it interesting, but it’s all in a solid color so you can layer it with accessories like crazy (rings, tights, boots, hats, whatever).

Wake Up with Orange Shower Gels

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Oranges by audreyjm529 on Flickr.

We drink orange juice in the morning out of habit. But it might actually have more to it than that. That good ol’ Vitamin C is so important. And why is VC so good? Lots of studies show it can improve mental clarity and even your mood. Citrus fruits wake up your mind. They can also wake up your body. And even the aroma of a citrus fruit will work.

I hate waking up early, but the one thing I know to do is drag myself into a hot shower right away. The one thing I’ve learned that can help me from just standing there under the water and ‘thinking’ is to use scented bodywash. Because otherwise I seriously will stand there for FAR too long, procrastinating even on washing my hair. It always reminds me of a scene from Family Ties where the youngest blonde daughter gets yelled at for taking such long showers and she announces, ... Read More

Buckled Zipper Booties from Charlotte Russe $20

Shoe Booties by kudumomo on Flickr

When it comes to shoes for fall 09, booties are still hot. Whether you call them a shoebooty or shoe bootie (or ankle boots), they’re cute. Calling them “booties” reminds me of the little booties that babies wear, but no one seems to mind. So, what shoe boots are cute for right now? And, even more importantly, let’s discuss how to wear shoe boots. Because the worst thing is to buy something great and then have no idea what to do with it besides look at it longingly in your closet.

June of JuneLin.com has posted pictures of booties seen on the runways for Hermes, J Mendel, and Marc Jacobs. Those shoes are BANANAS, as Rachel Zoe would say. But seriously, I PINE, I YEARN! And yet, I still can’t buy them because then I would have no ... Read More

Bargain News! BCBG on Sale

BGCG Max Azria from hyku on Flickr

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

Urban Outfitters is a great, hip, store. But it’s pricey, too. Ergo, we shop the Urban Outfitters sales! What do I look for when I see the rows of items with an urban outfit discount? That’s easy! Items you can still incorporate to your wardrobe right now, items you’ll wear next season, items drastically marked down, things you’ll always need (you wear a bra daily, yes?) – stuff like that.

Fall Hats & Winter Hats – Stylishly Sneaking Under the Radar With Picks under $40

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

felt hat

Lucky Magazine recommends the above Wool Felt Hat from Macys, which costs $44. Well, I say NO to that. We can find a good fall that that is stylish and less expensive. I’ve worked hard to find you other hat suggestions, all under $40, but mostly under $20. Floppy hats are great, but cloche hats are something I think that will be even more popular. The pro to a floppy hat? You can kind of hide your face under them more – but are you a celebrity who needs to hide? I don’t know. The con to a floppy hat? They will lose their shape more easily. You have to treat it like a newborn puppy and give it a spot of its own to live – no flopping it in with a stack of winter scarves.

“What Kind of Jacket Should I Wear for Fall?”

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

trench coats

Photo by ldhren on Flickr

Fall is a wonderful time, especially (in my opinion) if you live in an area where the leaves turn gorgeous colors of red and purple, you can visit apple orchards, pick your own pumpkin from a patch if you’re so inclined, and wear some cozy cardigans. The one thing that sometimes baffles me about Fall is what kind of jacket to wear. It’s waaaay too early for heavy winter jackets.

My answer to the question is the same answer to “What kind of jacket do I wear for Spring?” and that answer is: trench coats! I especially like the longer, belted trench coats. There are a surprising amount of variations, though. Even more surprising? There are plenty trench coats under $50.00, yay.
