Look Thinner with Colorblock Dresses and Colorblock Skirts

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!

Plaid Shirts for Women

Plaid Shirts for Women

Plaid patterns by mukluk on Flickr

Fall makes me think about lots of great things… new school notebooks, apple crisp (which I make myself!) and plaid. When I was younger I had little plaid skirts and wore actual knee socks. During the 90’s, flannel and plaid was popular with the entire 90’s grunge thing – and I remember I had one flannel shirt that I loooved. It was peachy with turquoise and if I knew where it was I swear I would still wear it.

But it’s okay, because right now plaid is so trendy for fall 09 that it’s impossible to find a store that isn’t stocking it. So the chances of me finding a new favorite plaid shirt is good. Plaid shirts for women are major right now. MAJOR!

There are lots of plaid shirts online to shop through. They’re virtual racks that let you think about what color combination for the shirt you might like while walking barefoot to your kitchen to get a bowl of Lucky Charms and think about what it’d be like to kiss Jude Law ... 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.

gifts for him

Urban Outfitters has a lot of great, silly items that make good Christmas gifts. So this is my list of  good gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season, using Urban Outfitters. Don’t fret (I know you hate to do that!), I also did a post for girls and more girl-centric gifts: Gifts for Her. Make sure to find a urban outfitters free shipping code & urban outfitters coupon code if you shop urbanoutfitters.com.

Well, it’s really hard to shop for guys. Seriously. What do you buy a guy for Christmas? Usually I have no clue. Which is why I’m on the hunt, early! Of course, these are gifts for guys in their teens/20’s/early 30’s – considering the store. They’re silly gifts, but guys often do like silly things. Usually I’m baffled because the only things guys like are super expensive things and it’s like – okay, but I can’t buy you a new Wii! Anyway! If you have to buy a present for a teenage boy? This is your go-to store for cheap Christmas gifts.

gifts for her

You may not win a shopping spree contest but we can still take a virtual shopping spree online at Urban Outfitters. Make sure to find a urban outfitters free shipping code & urban outfitters coupon code if you shop urbanoutfitters.com. The store has a lot of great, funky things that make good Christmas gifts. So I present you here with a little list of good gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season. Stay tuned for the one aimed at guys! Because yea, they deserve presents too, I guess 😛

Urban Outfitters has a ‘cheap gifts’ section and I’ve looked around to see what is worth a purchase. Stuff I don’t like? While the Cupcake on a Rope is cute, who really wants to bother with soap on a rope? I’d skip the Lace Pedestal Jewelry stand because whoever you buy that for you’re really dooming to a lifetime of dusting that thing all the time.

Thoughtful gifts! I like the ... Read More
