SO we’re in this little thing called a recession and our fashion dollars are running on low. Sometimes a girl just needs a little pick me up… a little bling….a little bauble to get her through the day. Well my dazzling darlings look no further because I literally tripped into Forever 21 and without getting carded I found these fabulous little gems to adorn your fingers. You do know one of the latest trends is wearing a rather large ring on your index or middle finer for day or evening- so here you go. A little piece of Heaven, that won’t cause HELL with your budget. You can find these at Forever 21 for under 10-yes 10 dollars that is and some are even under 5. Who knew?
If you’re traveling this summer-note to self:
These are two looks I suggest you avoid at all costs!!!
For suggestions on what to wear so you look chic, sophisticated and increase your chances for a first class upgrade: check out the Baggage claim blog below.
The summer travel season is upon us and you know what that means…”.bad fashion in baggage claim.” Horror of fashion horrors it’s true. Just take a quick look around the terminal you’re sitting in waiting to board that plane and you will understand why it’s called terminal in the first place. The fashion upon boarding would make some people short of breath and near resuscitation. You know the look(s) I’m talking about-the people who want to be “comfortable” at any cost- those lovely passengers wearing what seems to be their pajama bottoms with holes in them, the man wearing the worn out stretch pants that he gardened in yesterday-grass stains and all, the garish array of oversized tops that could fit a family of four. Now I’m mot trying to be a fashion snob I’m just saying if the plane should go down do you really want to be identified wearing that!
So for all my fashionistas out there waiting to board here are a few simple suggestions:
· A simple knit dress is comfortable, chic and easy to update with accessories.
· A trench is the classic outwear. You can go dressy or casual and it keeps you warm if the plane has an overzealous AC system.
· A short jacket with matching cropped pants and heels is just plain fabulous.
Pack pieces that you can use more than once. The basic black pant goes with an assortment of tops -giving you more mileage. Same goes for the little black dress-(dress it up or down with a change of accessories and heels.
Avoid checking in luggage, additional travel fees and best of all waiting in baggage claim .
Pack Light! Pack Less!
Yeh..that’s the ticket!
Project Runway’s production company appears to have beat Lifetime to the punch on announcing an exact premiere date for the show’s sixth season.
It will air on Lifetime August 20th,” states Harvey Weinstein, the CEO of Project Runway’s production company. The Weinstein Company shot these episodes in Los Angeles so we could take advantage of the entertainment industry… There’s a lot of red carpet challenges. I think it’s the same edgy, fantastic fun that people expect from Project Runway.”

In fashion there are only 2 seasons: Spring and Fall. The closest thing to Summer is Resort and that my dear fashion friends made its debut in “early” January. Hello! Can we say snow and lots of it for most people at that time of year. But I digress…
Here I am sitting in my office 1 week before Memorial Day. My white eyelet sundress perfectly pressed, strappy sandals lined up and ready for action, pedicure chipless in a pretty shade of coral and chunky turquoise stone necklace ready to jump out of its brightly colored gift box when BAMB my inbox is deluged with Pre-Fall Fashions from every retailer under the sun.
Now don’t get me wrong I love a new winter coat just as much as the next girl even through I live in Sunny California. I adore the thigh high boot, the suede gladiator open toe ankle boot, the lush feel of cashmere on your body, and the allure of all the beautiful fall colors and how they instantly perk up your complexion…-but I ask you Fashion Gods can we just take a collective summer siesta and enjoy our sundresses, Capri’s, open toed stilettos and self tanner for just a brief moment?
White seems to make everything so easy. You can pair a white pant with any color top and presto you’re good to go! But not so fast… one must review what people will be looking at in your rear view.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I am posting three to get my point across.
I am a fan of the white pant but please I’m begging you adhere to:
The White Commandments:
I. Thou shalt wear white pants that are made in a fabrication that gives ample coverage: translation-if you can see through your white pants and notice any panty lines, pocket lines and/or bikini lines… get in line and buy a new pair that you can’t see thru.
II. Thou shalt wear white pants that fit properly. Never attempting to wear white pants that pull at the crotch, dip at the waist or pucker in any other private area. That’s why their called private in the first place.
