Look for Less: Sweat Style

By |October 16th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|


While we’re on the subject (and conveniently now have the best workout playlist ever), let’s take a look at some svelte starlets in their workout gear.  You didn’t think they just looked that good with no hard work, did you?  No, it takes a lot of time and effort at the gym along with the smallest caloric intake possible (kidding about that last part… kind of).  Anyway, These ladies know that it’s important to be dressed properly for their grueling iron pumping sessions.

I, too, understand the importance of a good workout.  I mean, have you seen my ab workout??!!

1. C9 by Champion Racerback Bra, $14.99, 2. Victoria’s Secret Yoga Foldover Crop Legging, $29.50, 3. So Low Oversized Dolman Zip Hoodie, $95, 4. New Balance Set of 2 Stretch Performance Camisoles, $28, 5. Nike Lunar Sweet Victory + 2 Training Shoe, $100, 6. Forever 21 Hair Tie Ball, $3.50

This is one of the very few times where something resembling leggings must be worn as pants.  That does not make it okay to prance around town all day in them when you’re through at the gym.  For instance, I do not want to see you strolling into brunch post workout in your leggings and sitting down next to me.  Your cameltoe is not good for my appetite…

Not only is looking good while you glisten crucial, but wearing the right shoes and right bra will also save you from injuries and gravity.  Now drop and give me twenty!





Look for Less: Wrap It Up

By |October 9th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me a message asking if it was, in fact, too soon to break out the winter scarf.  Now, I’m a big fan of scarves, so my answer?  “It’s really never too soon for a scarf.”  Granted, you may look a little ridiculous when pairing a heavy winter weight scarf with a tank top and flip flops, but tucking a scarf in/on your bag for an evening out is always a great idea.  There’s been quite a few instances where I’ve been caught off guard by a sudden nip in the air and felt lucky that I had a sunggly scarf to wrap around me.  Now that it’s officially fall, scarves are fair game.  So, let’s see how some of Hollywood’s stylish startlets are sporting their scarves:

1. Bajra Ombre Wool Scarf, $159, 2. La Garconne No. 6 Blanket Boot, $390, 3. Levi’s Military Jacket, $64, 4. Wet Seal Fashionista Skinny Jean, $19.50

Snug as a bug in a rug.







Look for Less: Leather Weather

By |October 2nd, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

So maybe you’re not the “skin”tight leather dress kinda girl.  That’s okay, cause you can still incorporate leather into your life in a more casual, less Catwoman way.  From Paris to LA, celebrities have been seen sporting their second skins all over town.  While the look is undoubtedly sexy, it can be expensive.  You can check this out blog for the best leather history related blog.  That’s why there are some great faux leather (or “vegan” as we’re calling it now- tomato, tomato) options out there.  This is one time when it’s okay to fake the funk.

1. Rachel Zoe Bianca Sequin Top, $275, 2. Top Shop Faux Leather Skinny Trousers, $66, 3. MICHAEL Michael Kors Sloan Oversized Clutch, $248, 4. Blu Bijoux Gold Tear Drop Multi Strand Earrings, $46, 5. La Fenice Eden Suede Platform Booties, $175

1. J. Crew Burnout Linen T-Shirt, $35, 2. Express (Minus the) Leather Seamed Mini Skirt, $59.90, 3. Forever21 Oval Sunglasses, $5.80, 4. Top Shop Mixed Fabric Chain Bag, $56, 5. Ash Hidden Platform Leather Pump, $195

1. Vince Hi Lo Sweater, $159.99, 2. Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse Skinny Faux Leather Pants, $99, 3. Cara Leather and Metal Cuff, $31.90, 4. Kelsi Dagger Teya Studded Platform Pumps, $149




P.S. Might I point out that both pairs of  “leather” pants on here are not leggings.  Please do not go strutting around town in pleather leggings without a top long enough to cover your v-dot. 


Look for Less: Fancy Pants

By |September 25th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

There are certain things that make getting dressed in the morning that much easier… and no, Rachel Zoe is not an option.  We’ve already addressed one wardrobe essential with the blouse, but what’s a girl to wear on the bottom?  If it’s too chilly for a skirt (or you’re just too lazy to take a razor to your gams), slip in to some sleek tailored trousers.  There are so many options for pants, that you really can’t go wrong once you’ve found the right fit for your figure.  Wide leg works great on most gals, flares are great for a curvy bottom half, and high rise for ladies looking to add some curves.  Check out these sexy celebs in their fancy pants and re-create the look for yourself:

1. Topshop Ponte Shrunken Blazer, $80, 2. Current/Elliot The Stiletto Leopard Print Pants, $198, 3. Boutique Green Silk Pintuck Cami, $90, 4. Rebecca Minkoff Black Nylon and Leather Flame Studded Satchel, $297, 5. Chinese Laundry Whistle Platform Pump, $69.95

1. Halston Heritage Polka Dot Tie Neck Blouse, $265, 2. Theory Max C Original Pant, $235, 3. REISS Daria Black Resin Hard Case Clutch, $245, 4. Ivanka Trump Bulbli Pump, $125

1. Equipment Crepe de Chine Brett Blouse, $198, 2. Acne Side Slit Trousers, $350, 3. Modern Armour Cuff Bracelet, $27.44, 4. Report Signature Parker3 Platform Pumps, $151.22

Bottoms up!
