Stripes are BIG this season. These “one line wonders” can go from good to bad if the stripe is to bold or  to wide on the wrong area of your body.   So. how does a Glamour Girl choose a stripe wisely? Look no further than Nicole Miller. She’s one designer that always knows how to flatter a woman’s curves.   The two striped dresses (pictured here and available at Nordstrom) are  from her latest Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The size of the stripe along with the vibrant color combos are proof positive that indeed Nicole Miller has “Striped Sense.”

Budget Proposal.

When I received this email at Go To Glamour Girl last week I was thrilled and intrigued. Here is what  transpired:

Dear Go To Glamour Girl,

Hi! I just got engaged to my boyfriend. The good news is we have been dating FOREVER and he wants to be married ASAP (April of this year).The bad news is, I just lost my job and  am trying to watch my money. Are there any wedding dress options available that are strapless, around $1,000.00 or under and available for delivery by early April  2011..

Signed,

Happy…,but in a hurry

Dear Happy… but in a Hurry.

Congratulations, on your upcoming nuptials, I am positively thrilled for you . Needless to say I realize that time is of the essence and  understand your constraints. To that end I have quickly sourced some beautiful solutions to your dilemma via the web: The GOOD NEWS-I have found not one but four GORGEOUS options that meet your constraints. All gowns are around $1,000.00 or under, all strapless and all are available NOW! (We are talking RETAIL… so there is no problem). I would highly recommend ordering ASAP or if possible going into the store where available and trying them on. The key to having a gown look like it was made for you is  ALTERATOINS..if ever you have decided to spend the money on a perfect fit-THIS IS IT!!! A well fitting garment can be the difference between an “off the rack look” and “custom made.”If you want a little more “oomph” to make your gown really sparkle- might I suggest adding a bit of Bling…(think statement necklace and/or   rhinestone bracelet..) I have sourced  a necklace from White House Black Market.com on sale- (please see below) to give you an idea. I also suggest you look to  vintage stores, eBay, Etsy  or even borrow something from a friend to help you watch the budget but give you a look that is Glamour Worthy.
