Fashion should not turn off just because your eyes close at night. Not to scare you, but what if something odd happens and you're forced to run outside? Or, what if your favorite bed buddy surprises you at 3 a.m.? I'm not suggesting wearing a cocktail dress or stacked bangles to bed. I'm merely saying if it's comfortable and cute, but not marked sleepwear, wear it anyway.
Like this Only Hearts Metallic Skinny Tank ($66). It's not a traditional pajama, but how shiny would you look sleeping in it? Live a little, even in your sleep!
Twirl it, titillate it and twinkle it in tulle! This delicate fabric adds volume and femininity to any item - especially when poofing up dresses and skirts. The items below elicit tulle drool and make me happy to be a girl. If you're looking for ways to femme up your wardrobe, look no further. So give tulle a twirl girl!
Mandy Moore looked very au natural at the Mercedes-Benz Bridgehampton Polo Challenge in Long Island over the weekend. Her gold knit dress is flattering but I'm glad she chose to pair it with those white sassy wedge sandals! Without them, the ensemble would be quite snooze-worthy. She tops it all off with some chunky jewels...she's literally golden!
A long time web shopper, I have always been frustrated with Bloomingdales online. I never thought their site emulated the upscale look and selection Bloomies carries. To my surprise, the retailer has made an effort to refresh their face on the web. The new Bloomies has a black background, appears better organized than before, and has a more upscale allure. Check out the homepage:
They have joined other savvy retailers like Fab favorites Neiman Marcus and Net-a-Porter by drawing you in with a beautiful home page. New features include a Designer Spotlight (currently Tory Burch), The Trend Shop, and Spotlight On: Prom (where there are some great frocks!). You can then shop by Designers, Women, Shoes & Handbags, Beauty, Men, Home, Jewelry & Accessories, Kids, Sales & Values, Shop Catalogs, Bridal Registry and Gifts. The photography has improved too; it's not as catalogy and more high fashion.
Big improvements for Bloomingdale's if you ask me, let's hope they keep it coming! In the meantime, to see some of my picks, read more
Here is a fashion tribute to the tidey whitey. While lingerie brands such as Agent Provocateur have the racy lingerie genre covered, whatever happened to the simplicity of a sweet, white cover up? We've seen them throughout history - from Janet Leigh in 'Bye Bye Birdie' to Sigourney Weaver's eerie exposé scene in 'Alien' to Calvin Klein's infamous underwear ads. No doubt the tighty whitey is a classic, maybe it's just taking a hiatus.
To see a few of my all time favorites when you just want to keep it clean and pure, read more
