Hello Gorgeous – Fashion Blog

Okay we need the rain but I am ready for Spring already.  I know it is Spring but I mean warmer please, so we can wear all the great new styles and colors. I have some orange and navy waiting to go steady. Sandals and feminine dresses come on sun.  One thing I have really noticed is there is so much more feminine styling this season. Flattering and for so many different body shapes.  It is going to be a fun season.  Have you been watching Fashion Star?  I am loving it.  It is fun to see new designers being creative and bringing their interpretation to the stage.  How cool to be rewarded right then and there for the out of the box styling,how cool for them. . . Shoes, OMG are they cute with all the color and style. I personally cannot wear the high 6 inch shoes or sandals but they are sexy and fun.  If you can wear them do it.  A word of caution do not wear them all day everyday, you will mess up your feet and you have to walk on them,  and you will need them for a very long time. Be careful with all the color in the shoes to not over do it with the rest of your wardrobe and end up looking like a clown. If you love animal prints do wear them but try one item at a time.  To many animal prints can spoil the look.  I love bling and wear a lot of it.  It just who I am, but I try to make it a story of color...

Hello Gorgeous – Get Ready for Spring

Each day is lasting a little bit longer (yay, I love daylight savins time) , the sky seems brighter and a ray of sunshine occasionally breaks through the clouds. It’s time to emerge from hibernation, start shedding some layers and begin easing into spring. (Okay Freak out, shed layers, Yikes!!!) Start off your spring in style with the help of these seven tips from our experts: (at Jockey P2P) Start getting your feet in shape for sandal season.Even if you live in the “frozen tundra,” spring will be here before you know it. Besides, there’s nothing like pretty toes to bring out your inner “girly girl!” (Nothing like a great pedicure and your feet will thank you). Think about going a little blonde by adding face-framing highlights.We don’t know for sur e that blondes have more fun … but you never know until you try! (find ou if blondes have more fun) Get out your calendar and begin planning your summer excursions.Figure out exactly where you want to go, what you want to do and how much you need to tuck away each month to enjoy a comfortable vacation. Assess your finances. If you’re long on imagination and short on funds, now’s the time to address that issue.

Bring spring inside.Don’t just admire those ubiquitous pots of tulips or daffodils; take one home and brighten up your kitchen table with a burst of spring. Of course, it’s time to go to your closet and weed out everything that doesn’t fit, that you don’t like or were...

Hello again Gorgeous ones, I have been on a mission this past week to redo my closet, actually all of them in the house. I have a small house and the more organized you are the easier it is to deal with. With a small home it can get out of control easy and them overwhelming then we get blocked and less work get done and procrastination. It can get ugly. I have to tell you though the more space you have the more you collect. I usually redo my closet a couple of times a year and wanted to make some changes this time so I could help others conquer theirs. First I took a rack and pulled everything out of the closet and organized by style (if you do not have a rack us the bed and do in sections). So all blouses together, skirts, pants, etc. you get the picture. Then buy style so short sleeved, sleeveless etc then by color. I did this to make it easy for me to find what I wanted easily and it has been supper great to look for what I want. I do not know about you but I can waste a lot of time looking for one item in the morning especially if I am having one of those I hate everything I put on mornings. Here is the key to keeping it like that longer. When you get dressed leave the hanger in the closet in the space where you removed it. If you are going to launder it or if you are re-hanging it will go back...

Spring is so cool, with new colors, new fun styles.  This year is unusal for spring. There are lots of great bold bright colors.  I did not want to bore  or overwhelm you with to much information.  I personally really like the colors and blocking. I have seen lots of tangerine already on the scene.  White is a big statement as I stated before but not just a piece but head to toe white.  Now I am not sure on that one but if you do it pop it with some colorful BLING.  Turgouise, or coral are good choices.  I would not do pearls unless they are a color that pops like green. Check yourself out in a full-length mirror or snap a quick photo, whichever method helps you get a good birds-eye view of your color-blocked outfit in its entirety. And remember, when finalizing the finishing touches of your outfit choose the simple route! Meaning do not over do it.  If you feel you may have to much on take one item off and that should do the job. 4. Make Flattering Choices The color-blocking technique is making a true style statement, so it is imperative to select pieces (and color schemes) that are flattering to you. Color-blocked stripes and other architectural color-blocked patterns are very popular. The key is to pay attention to each stripes/shapes placement on your body (ie. if you don’t want to make your bust line or hips to appear voluminous, then don’t put a wide pattern, especially in a bold color, directly over them). If you work in a creative field or casual office...

Hello Gorgeous – Fashion Blog – Spring Trends 2012

I have not posted in a while and have been told to get my b_ _ _ in gear.  I have a lot to say and so much is happening for Spring.  However, do not want to overwhelm and I know that if it is to much I lose interest and play somewhere else.  I love fashion and everyone has their own style which is very cool.  I think that fashion should be fun and expressive but not over the top so you look like a clown.  Some people come by it naturally and for some this is a little harder.  For the record I do not believe that size of weight is the issue when it comes to fashion.  You have to feel comfortable in your own skin and love who you are even with the excess pounds.  Something I struggle with but working on.  However, I do take the leap with fashion.  I love to not play it to safe.  I do think that we should not be a slave to fashion but adding a couple of trending pieces and mix and match will change up your style if you have managed to have some timeless pieces as your staple. The first thing I see this season is flirty feminine style.  A lot of color blocking.  The definition of color blocking: Color-blocking is when a garment or outfit is composed of finite blocks of color. Here is an example according to Glamor Magazine. Option A: Monochromatic = one color throughout entire outfit in different hues. Option B: Separates = mix garments of contrasting (2-4) colors. Option C:...

Sneaky Ways To Look Thin

Spring Fashion is a time of transition. It is also time to start thinking about Summer, I know, but Summer is going to come and you want to be ready… One thing that never changes is ways to look thinner and make out clothing look the best on us so we feel confident. Here is some tricks and tips, hope you find them useful.  Add Pops of Color – If you have wide hips and thighs, wear a black pencil skirt on the bottom and a bright color like fuchsia on top. (Or, reverse it if you’re self-conscious about your upper body area.) By sporting darker colors on your “problem areas”, you’ll bring attention to the asset that you feel best about. White and champagne are also great hues to add to an all-black wardrobe. Buy A New Bra – The one thing every woman can do right now to look thinner in her clothes is to buy a new bra, says Charla Krupp, author of How to Never Look Fat Again. “Eighty-five percent of women are walking around in the wrong bra, and it makes their breasts look lower than they should be.” The goal is to create as much space as possible between your waist and chest so your torso appears longer and leaner, she advises. The trick is to have an expert measure you instead of automatically buying the same size you always do. Head to the lingerie department at a fine department store or a specialty shop like the Intimacy boutique to get hooked up (no pun intended). Choose V-Neck Tops- When it comes to dressing thinner, Krupp swears by V-neck...

Spring is in the Air and in Fashion

What is new for Spring?  I do not know about you but I love Spring and Fall too, that is when the styles come out.  So spring the flowers the smells, the air just smells different.  We have been blessed with a gorgeous January and so far February.  Valentines it next Monday, wow already.  Oh yah the clothes the shoes the handbags and OMG jewels.  I love it all.  I had someone in a store (male of course) ask me if I was married.  When I said yes he said he felt sorry for my husband and I was high maintenance, and I still bought a sweater from him.  What can I say he was not all wrong.  I think that when a woman gets dressed and accessorized it should make her feel good. Look in the mirror and say I look hot and have the best day ever.  I know not everyday can be that day but we can strive for as many of those as possible.  This means we have to love ourselves and be conscious of who we are and what we want to project to the world.  I personally have my own style and it is a little funky and fun I think and that is who I am.  If you notice this season is full of pastels and soft fabrics as well as some ruffles and lace.  Skinny jeans are still in but a comeback that is looking good on everyone is the flare leg, it balances out the body, very cute.  Also vintage a huge favorite and a must have  to incorporate into your...

Happy Holiday to All..

This is such a magical time of year and sometimes stressful.  Just for today, give yourself a break.  Don’t judge yourself or others.  Look at life with great hope and gratitude. I truly believe that if we all did this no matter what our current situation is we make a difference and shift in the world. Make today about peace and love.  Love conquers all.  I truly believe that to be true.  Love of yourself first and foremost.  Without self love it is hard to love anything else.  Forgiveness to yourself and others that you think have done you wrong. View the lesson in all that happens good or bad.  When something really good happens open to it and let the gratitude shine. When something we view as not so good happens open to it and view the lesson in this moment, thank it for the lesson, then let it go… I know easy for me to say.  Trust me I have had great experience with the not so good and the good as well. This time of year we can get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and do not take the step back to just BE.  We can get stressed, depressed and sometimes even lonely with thousands of people around us.  Maybe no one to tell your secrets to so we hold them in or pretend they don’t exist only to have them rear their ugly heads at the most inappropriate time.  I know it is hard to just stop and just be, but what if we did and we felt BETTER.  We...
