Hello Gorgeous – Who are you?

I know it is an interesting question.  This is some what of a departure from fashion and style, but not really.  I have been reading this book from Debbie Ford that has a new book out called “Courage” Overcoming Fear & Igniting Self – Confidence.  Powerful title, right, and she lives up to it.  I have always loved both her and Marianne Williamson.  They expose themselves to help others be the best them they can be and use their experiences to tell a tale of love for self that is if taken to heart and you do all the lesson’s you will come out on the other side better for it.  It is a must read for every women.  If you are not familiar with Debbie Ford she also is responsible for the Shadow Effect.  She just goes to the core of who we are.  The pages are not filled with blah, blah, blah.  The stories of women and what they had gone through and Debbie’s own story will have you looking at your own story.  We all have a story, a past that pushes us forward or keeps us stuck.  When I hear of some of these and other courageous women that have made a difference it makes me want to be a better me.  If there is one thing I know for sure is that we are all worth it.  How we feel about who we are is the person we show to the world.  To be authenic no matter who that is, warts and all is beautiful. So I urge you to check out this book:...

Hello Gorgeous – Old is New Again

I am sure you have noticed but they recycle styles and just something to make a little edgier or toned down.  Have you ever thought of adding lace or a sheer fabric on a top or jacket to update it?  Some of the styles have the elastic at the waist or hips (I do not need anything else at my waist or hips). I took it to the  cleaners who is going to take the elastic out and put a hem in it for me and it will be flowing and not clinging.  This is an easy fix for $10. i love the tYou have to think outside of the box and mix it up. If you cut up something that is old and your never wear what is the worst that can happen?  You throw it away…  There are no rules when it comes to mixing.  It can actually make you look very hip instead of dated.  Make sure you look in the mirror front and back and if you are still not sure take a picture.  This may also give you some insite to your style and the beliefs you have about style and fashion.  It can hold you back from being the fun flirty women you...

Hello Gorgeous – What if the Colors for this season are not for me?

Hello Gorgeous, Are you curious how to pull off the trends if you do not feel the current colors are for you.  First do not be a slave to fashion   (seriously I found this picture from fashion week) One of those colors that is not for everyone is Tangerine.  However, you can still pull it off.  I personally love the navy with the tangerine.  So for instance if you can wear navy (which most can) then choose a fund sandal with tangerine in it or a handbag.  If you have a handbag you love then find a scarf that has tangerine in it and tie it to your handbag.  This way you are not making a full on commitment to tangerine and it is a small in vestment.  This is a great way to incorporate fund colors into an existing wardrobe. Take a look at sites like Aldo, Zappos and Nine West for ideas on color. Here are some examples below....

Hello Gorgeous – What is your Jewelry Style?

Do you love bling?  It is the easiest way to accessorize and jazz up and outfit.  I personally do not like everything matchy.  Your jewels should make a statement, not hide or blend in to much. It also gives you more flexibility.   I love all bling but especially turquoise to snap the color, it goes with most everything.  This season with all the different shades of orange the turquoise looks really hot and fun.  Your bracelet, necklace, earrings and rings do not have to match and it shows your individuality.  It is great way to express who you are without breaking the bank.  There are a ton of cool jewels out there for you to choose from.  If you have jewels already then experiment with outfits you love or you think make need a little something extra.  If you are new to adding jewels then a shopping trip should be in your future.  Again experiment with color and styles you like and that speak to you.  Those are the pieces you will keep and wear for years to come.  Bring a couple of colors you love to wear and see how the contrast works. Now throw on your favorite dark wash jeans and favorite top and denim jacket and have some fun.  Need some company, give me a RING to help find your...

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...
