Something New

Need a new color to wear??? Try including a pop of "wine" in your outfit! This deep color is sophisticated and feminine at the same time! Here are some examples of how to include this fall color into your wardrobe:

This Miss Selfridge Cape Dress is only $23.

Accessorize with these wine colored Ray Ban Sunglasses!!

You could even keep it simple with a cute wine-colored nail polish.

Whether its a cute dress, a pair of pumps, accessories or nail color, try doing something different and adding a new color to your wardrobe!! :)

Flatter Your Figure

"Apple Shaped"

This Flatter Your Figure Post will focus on persons who carry majority of their weight around their mid-section.

Consider this when dressing your body:

*To create a smooth surface to start with, wear seamless, fitted, stretch tanks under your garments.
*Skinny jeans can distort your proportion, try wearing straight leg jeans to balance out your legs with your upper half.
*Invest in a few blouses that have a corset style structure.
*Frame your face/neck with v-necks and scoop necks
*Wrap dresses and tops are good for creating a waistline
*Avoid shapeless tops and dresses.
*Anything clinging to the hips or thighs is a no-no.

Remember: One of your main goals is to create balance. Your shape and your clothes should ALWAYS compliment each other! And more importantly, when you're healthy, you're beautiful no matter what your shape is!!

*Love and Look Pretty!*

What I'm Loving!

(Definitely one of my favorite dress designers)

What's In Your Closet?

Out With The Old!!

If you're like me, you probably have lots of clothes in your closet that never...ever get worn! It could be because they don't fit, are out of style, or maybe you just forgot about them. Whatever the reason, GET RID OF THEM! There's no need to hold on to something that you don't use. Purge your closet and make room for new items. In the meantime you could bless someone else with your old things.

Get Organized!!

I did a blog post a while back about having a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. I told you about combining pieces that usually don't go together to get a fresh idea. Well, one thing that would make this process A LOT easier is organization. A well organized closet will help you see exactly what you have to work with.

Try sorting by color, type (shirts, skirts, pants, sweaters, dresses, etc.), style, and whatever else you can think of to narrow things down. It may seem like a tedious task, but TRUST ME it's definitely worth the work.
