Nude Fashion

I’m loving all of her right now. I’m really into nude shoes, and Emma Watson pulls it off as classy as anyone possibly can at the Elle Style Awards 2011, without any effort. I’ve been pairing nude shoes & nude cardigans over pastel dresses lately and adore the combination.. especially if you have legs like Emma, it’s flaunting you over your clothing. Bravo, girl.

Check out Hautelook to get 50%-75% of SO MANY of your favorite brands–promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s like a fashion Groupon with more than one deal at a time.

I Have Green Fingers

I admit, I buy cheap jewelry. So sue me! It’s just the green ring that’s embarrassing! Like sometimes I take off my jewelry mid day because it’s annoying, and I look down and see the NEW green ring that I DID NOT buy. Stupid.

Care for a cure? Try painting the inside of the cheap jewelry with clear coat nail polish. Works like a charm. And if you have the stain from NOT using this method, try heavy duty dish soap.

Does The Shoe Fit…

Now, if price weren’t an option, do you think it’d make you influence your choice of shoe? If you didn’t know which brand you were flaunting, would you care? You’d be surprised to see which brands are actually stylish–for a much much cuter price. Check back next week to see which shoes are actually the least expensive….I’m sure you’ll be surprised

Either, Or

Difference between style & fashion

Now, I’ve been looking at this quote for a couple of days (yes, I have been looking at it upside down, too. Hence the image) And I don’t know what to conclude. I mean I know what Giorgio Armani had in mind when he said it, but I don’t know how I want to interpret it. So, I’ve come to this:

Fashionista vs. Style Icon. Fashion is something you turn to when you don’t have good style. Fashion always points to high quality brands—style doesn’t. You can still have style without being “in fashion”. So when someone has good fashion, that’s the easy part. Finding your style is the creative part. And, as we all know–fashions fade but style is eternal.

Pastels in Winter

I’m one for Florida winter attire, which consists of warm pastels instead of the typical winter/fall collection of all drabby darks. I think us Floridians can pull it off, since the coldest it gets around here in 50, maybe-sometimes. Even though the second it hits 65 we pull out the boots and jackets…We’re lucky we don’t have to pack on the jackets, gloves, earmuffs, and boots (even though sometimes we want to) and we don’t use that to our advantage. We can pull off blouses on New Years Eve & cardigans on Christmas. I mean why not?
