  • 10 Instant Oomphs for Everyday Outfits

    What exactly do we look for in a stylish getup? Every day millions and millions of women around the world rack their brains for ideas, novel and revived, and garner piles and piles of compilations of what we like to call "outfit inspirations," may it be in the form of Pinterest boards, screen-captures, and whatnot.

Not only do we question, but more importantly, today we also seek to uncover simple yet effective ways we can apply in everyday sartorial selections to meet the said need, drive, and thirst to be perceived as fashionable and stylish.

  • Wedding Tips 101 - Dresses and Accessories

    Are you starting to plan your wedding? Shopping for your ideal wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses? I can tell you from experience that planning a wedding is one of the most difficult tasks one can endeavor. Just thinking about all of the thought and hard work that goes into planning a wedding can be nerve wracking. Let me set your mind at ease, there are very many ways to MAKE IT A FUN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.

    Do not get discouraged when you try on a dress that is “your size” but does not fit as you had expected. All formal wear has a tendency to run smaller than your everyday clothing. Another thing you will need to keep in mind when shopping for your dress is to identify your body type. Knowing your body type will allow you to find the ideal dress that will accentuate your figure in all the right places, and if you’re in the market for bridesmaid dresses this will help you find the right dress style that will work for your entire party.body typesMAKE IT FUN: Plan a girls day/night out. Grab your bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor (MOH) and hit the town. Pick a boutique or store, call ahead if needed and try on as many dresses you can! When you find your DREAM dress, you will feel it. If after trying on 10, 15 or even 30 dresses and you do not find your dress then have no worries, you can always plan another girls day/night! Don't settle, this is your special day you deserve a special dress to commemorate the occasion. Continue reading

  • How to Get Your Crush to Notice You

    I get it, girls. There's always that one person in your class that you end up drooling over, daydreaming about, casually clicking on their Facebook page - yeah, I'm an expert at this. During my high school years, I had a huge crush on a guy named James. I loved everything he did. His stupid jokes, his snort when he laughed, the way he played the drums and his disheveled curly hair.boy-girl-love-heart-sweet-lovers-valentines-day-1920x1200  I was the tomboy in school, who was always seen as one of the guys. Which in one way was great, because I had many guy friends, but I was never looked at as a viable dating option. When it came to trying to make James notice me as a potential love interest, I did just about everything wrong.  But, don't rush me, we'll get into all that as I teach you the dos and don'ts of getting your crush to notice you!

    James and I turned out to be good friends. He would tell me about the girls he was interested in and I would listen, as a friend would, but secretly wish he waI Love My Crush and Can't Keep Calms talking about me. I know the feelings, it's painful when you like somebody so much and they seem unattainable to you. Highschool eventually came to an end and we remained as we always were, friends.

    Once I began college, I started to meet new people, went to parties, found my style and myself. Although he remained a huge crush of mine- distance, school, life, took us down different paths. A year or two later, we ended up running into each other at a party and it was like I was seeing my crush for the first time. This was a great chance for me to start fresh and see if our relationship could take on a new direction, would he notice me? Here are some helpful tips to help you to get your crush to notice you.

  • Cara Delevingne Stunned in Silver at the Paper Towns Premiere

    One of our favorite models, Cara Delevingne, has been walking the red carpet lately for a whole new reason: she's acting in movies! She's been all over the news lately for so many movies she'll be staring in, from Suicide Squad to Pan. She even stared in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood music video! The latest, though, is the film Paper Towns, which is all about a special road trip. She recently walked the red carpet for the Paper Towns premiere, and of course she did it in true style, bringing her innate sense of fashion into the movie industry.

  • Art Deco Inspired Looks for Homecoming

    Homecoming Season is coming up! You can tailor your look for Homecoming in many ways, like the Gothic Lolita for example. It’s a stylized take on the turn of the century vintage vogue with exaggerated puffy materials. Big bold floral patterns and lace edges can be very 80s Madonna inspired. Especially if you do hard accessories like a leather cuff or short booties. You can put big lace and tulle skirts together with contrasting accessories, like cowboy boots for example. There is also the art deco look. A classic style with geometric designs and heavy embellishment. Girls are getting very creative at making these styles all their own. There is a dress out there for you. Whether you want to reveal or conceal, any way you are most comfortable, today there really are no rules.

    One impression to consider is the polished mode of the art deco movement. The tendency for this look to reemerge time and again is expected. Designers thrive when they pull their creativity from art trends in history. Art Deco is  both new and old, modern and understated.

    If you are looking to do something bold, classic and completely chic, think about the art deco style. Vintage is making a comeback. Artists and Designers from the Art Nouveau are serving as design inspiration for contemporary looks for formal dresses. Graphic prints and embellished details in the bodice and sleeve, these are ideas that come from the cusp between the bohemian and art deco eras. If you ever peruse an art history book, you may recognize styles of dress from the subjects featured in works by Degas, Klimt and Sargent.

    Turn on your inner fashionista and think back to the quality dresses Carrie Bradshaw wore on Sex and the City: bold prints, soft neutrals and always some sparversace mille feuille dress gallery400×359kle. Seek out embroidered bodice, cap sleeve, flowing skirts and a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. These elements come into play with today's fashions for the first reception of the year. There is a fun mix of pieces that refer back to the deco period of the 1920s, and dress forms that harken back to the 1950s. There is a variety of styles available, but the classic forms of the Art Deco era keep coming back in sleek and stylized ways.
