Would You Wednesday: Is That a Mirror in Your Pants?

metallic denimCelebrity Blues Metallic Skinny Jeans, $44

Spring and summer 2012 brought us colored and printed denim… so what precisely does the fall have in store for us in the way of denim?  Brace yourselves… if brands have it their way… everyday is going to be a party.  Aww sookie sookie now.  Denim takes a cue from the disco era with metallic shades ranging from pure platinum to glamorous gold.

I want to say that I like it because as I think about it, I’m picturing the likes of Gisele and Miranda channeling their 70’s disco divas in shiny jeans and feathered hair, but then I remember that 98% of the population does not resemble that of a super model.  This is when I start to think about ol’ Sally over there, three cubicles down sporting the trend and all of a sudden it’s anything but appealing (kind of like the tuna fish sandwich she’s chowing down on).  This is most definitely one of those trends that could either be le freak c’est chic or just totally lay a gasser…

Why Did You Wear That: To the Max

spring 2012 maxi dressesThe maxi dress is nothing new, but that’s okay.  It’s still a closet and transitional season must have.  A maxi is great for running errands in a simple pair of flat sandals and tote or can be dressed up with heels and sparkly jewels.  Maxi dresses are a win for all parties involved.  It’s like getting to wear your pajamas all day long and no one can really say anything cause you look so stunning and you never run the risk of exposing your “Britney.”  Striped, solid, floral, tribal… you really can’t go wrong.  Check out how these chic starlets styled their maxis and re-create the look yourself for that oh-so-effortless maxed out look.

Friday Frocks: Fade to Black

By |January 6th, 2012|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

Well, January is in full swing and after the holidays and festivities have wound down, it may just feel like one big ‘ol hangover.  You’ve sequined and accessorized and now you probably just want to lay low.  Bling feels so blah and glitter makes you want to gag.  That’s where the good ol’ LBD comes into play.  Consider it your lime sorbet between appetizer and entree.  The LBD is a great palate cleanser to hold you over between holiday and spring.  Its uses are endless and it doesn’t have to be boring.  Cutouts, texture, and unexpected details are what make an LBD a totally stylish staple.  Dress it up, dress it down.  Take it from day to night.  You really never can go wrong when you’re back in black.

Why Did You Wear That: Trail Blazers

By |November 13th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

You may only associate the blazer as a piece of clothing worn by uptight businessmen and those ladies who wear white sneakers on their commute to work, but I’d like to let you in on a little style secret.  The blazer is far less boring and uptight than you think it is.  As a matter of fact, a blazer can go great for a laid back weekend running errands or a night out on the town with your girlfriends.  Check out how Heidi, Miranda, and Blake all incorporated this style staple into their wardrobes this week:

Time to take the blazer from the cubicle to the cluuuuuurb.





Friday Frocks: In the Navy

By |November 4th, 2011|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

We all have a go to LBD, but have you ever thought about swapping it out for a LND (little navy dress)?  The ladies of the Navy (or the WAVES) certainly do look snazzy in the crisp color. Navy looks great with metallics, nudes, and grey and despite what you may think… Navy can even be paired with black (as shown in dress #9).
