Printed Blouses!

This spring I am really into these techno printed blouses! They are so now! Wear these with chic simple black dress shorts and flats or heels. You could also wear them with white or black distressed skinny jeans. I like the idea of balancing the femininity with distressed jeans but I think stick to white or black. Keep accessories simple as the blouse has a lot going on. The blouse on the bottom is from Stella McCartney so it will run up your credit card bill but you can find great blouses at asos.com too like the one pictured on the top just make sure the fabric is light and "flowy" and not at all stiff.

Happy Shopping!

Please STOP:

1) Wearing Dansko's-unless you're a nurse or you're on your feet all day for your job do not wear these. They are not for fashion. No I don't care if they are leopard print or patent leather! Save them for wearing with your scrubs!
2) Wearing Ed Hardy-I know I told you all before but I just wanted to reiterate.
3) Wearing outfits that are wrong for your body type. If you're boxy wear a belt to accentuate your waistline, if you're very thin wear all the cute blousey tops that are in right now. If you're overweight you can still dress trendy and feel comfortable at the same time, look for longer tops and forgiving ruffle accents.
4) Saying I'm too old to wear that. Yes, it is important to know how to dress your age but just because you're "middle aged" doesn't mean you have to dress like a frump, it takes skill to know how to incorporate a trend into your wardrobe so get some magazines and some fashionable friends and figure it out. Don't just give up or you'll look like you did!

Fashion is fun, experiment and say yes!

Spring Lips!

I have to tell you about my new lip color faves! I'm loving a hot pink, really glossy lip or a soft coral hue for Spring! Try out my faves: Frisky Summer by Nars and Ever Hip from the Liberty of London collection by M.A.C. Try these out and look hot for Spring! Keep the coral shade updated and prevent an "old lady" look by keeping it glossy and pair with a simple or smoky brown eye. It looks best with a bronzy skin tone so get your spray tan on!
