Women’s Jeans: 3 Fab Alternatives to Skinny Jeans

Women's Jeans by AG JeansSkinny jeans are considered the end all, be all in the denim world right now, and although they’re very stylish and trendy, there are so many other kinds of women’s jeans out there!  Believe me, these are just as flattering — if not more so.  Not every woman can comfortably wear skinny jeans, after all.  You might not feel comfortable or sexy, depending on your body type.  I know girls and women of all ages and sizes who can really rock skinny jeans, and I applaud them for that, but as a short girl with some curves, I for one… Read More »

Makeup Essentials: The Key to Red Lipsticks

Red lipsticks are one of the prevailing trends this winter, but the trend is an extremely bold one.  You might think that only models and actresses can really rock a sexy red lip, but that’s not true at all.  Every day women can wear this color without worrying, although there are a few rules to follow if you want to make it work for you.  Your skin tone and coloring makes a huge difference, but you also need to know when it’s okay to wear red lipstick.  But don’t worry, all you… Read More »

Makeup Essentials: Acidic Nail Polish Colors

Makeup Essentials: Acidic Nail Polish Colors

I don’t think I’ve taken the time to talk about new makeup trends yet — shame on me! Double shame, because I love cosmetics, and triple shame because I love checking out new nail polish colors. I bit my fingernails down to the quick for most of my life; for the last 5 years or so since I stopped, I’ve become obsessed with nail polish. Although I’m sometimes into neutral colors, like nudes and soft mauve shades, I love the newest trend: bright, acidic nail polish.  Candy apple or poison green, blazing turquoise,… Read More »

How to Wear It: Beautiful Ballet Fashion

Women's Tulle Dress from Pins and Needles

How to Wear It: Beautiful Ballet Fashion

One of my favorite trends, which promises to continue on into spring, is most definitely ballet fashion. It’s floaty, dainty, feminine, and just plain gorgeous.  Now, before you start thinking of yourself in short tutus or long, sweeping tulle dresses with body suits, leotards, and slippers laced all the way up your leg with satin ribbons, let me assure you that is not the case with this trend.  Rather, it takes aspects of ballet culture — and couture — and gives them a trendy, modern, glorious twist.  You still get to enjoy… Read More »

Totally Trending: Metallic Clothes

Women's Metallic Shift Dress from Ecote

Totally Trending: Metallic Clothes

Metallic clothes are a hot trend for winter 2011 and 2012.  The reason why is pretty simple: what better than to bring a little sparkle and dazzle when the skies are grey and snow keeps falling?  Whether it’s subtle threads of silver and gold or solid metallic sheen, you’re sure to find something that gives you the glitter you desire.  I know that solid gold or silver clothing can be a little off-putting, though.  Sometimes you just can’t really go all out.  However, there are tons of ways you can rock this trend in a… Read More »

Hot Handbag Action: Cute Satchel Bags

Hot Handbag Action: Cute Satchel Bags

This winter, cute satchel bags are the end-all in handbag fashion. For my money, I love satchels.  They’ve got plenty of room, which is awesome if you, like me, enjoy keeping your entire life in your bag.  Typically they’re versatile as well, in that you can carry them with the handles or throw them over your shoulder.  Most of them come with dual straps, which I love.  If I can’t slip my bag over my shoulder, I’m not happy.  There have been so many adorable bags I’ve had to pass over because there’s… Read More »

Footwear Mania: Perfect Winter Peep Toe Pumps

Footwear Mania: Perfect Winter Peep Toe Pumps

The problem with buying winter shoes for women is that most of us are under the mistaken impression that we can only wear certain kinds of shoes.  If you’re going to wear heels or booties, for instance, then they have to be close-toed, because it is just not acceptable to let your stockings be seen through peep toe pumps, right?  Wrong!  Trends have changed, rules have changed, minds have changed, and now it’s perfectly okay for you to wear peep toes and stockings — whether they’re standard stockings or those super special… Read More »

Designer Spotlight: 3 Dresses from Stella McCartney

Women's Erena Pleated Trapeze Dress from Stella McCartney

Designer Spotlight: 3 Dresses from Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney and Gwyneth Paltrow are practically besties, and the latter recently drew a lot of attention with a certain dress.  Sadly, the piece hasn’t been getting a lot of positive reviews; the blogosphere seems to think that it’s too tight and looks lopsided.  I don’t hate on it, exactly, but I can see their point.  So, for today’s first Designer Spotlight, I decided to highlight three different, gorgeous dresses from Stella.  Remember, you can find women’s designer clothing to fit your preferences and your style.… Read More »

Hipster Style: Arm Warmers and Fingerless Gloves

Hipster StyleHipster Style: Arm Warmers and Fingerless Gloves

I have to admit, I used to hate the whole hipster trend.  Maybe because it’s been around long enough now that I’ve gotten used to it or maybe because it’s started to grow on me, I like it.  Hipster style isn’t always cookie cutter, and it’s easy to make the look your own.  As I think I’ve told you by now, I love accessories.  Even when I can’t buy clothing, you’ll find me buying shoes, scarves, handbags, sunglasses, or things like arm warmers and fingerless gloves, which are among my favorite hipster accessories.… Read More »

The Fabulous Flapper Girl Fashion

The Fabulous Flapper Girl Fashion

Like many retro vintage clothing trends, flapper girl fashion is back with a vengeance.  The signature look of the 1920s, it’s coming back with an amazing modern twist.  These days, faux fur is more popular than the real thing, of course, and it’s not all about glass beads and sequins, either.  No one really chants “voh-doh-dee-oh-doh” any long, but that doesn’t matter.  That flirty, feisty era is coming back, and there are several pieces you can look for if you want to make it your own.
