New Year’s Eve Chic On The Cheap

December 27, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

With the holiday spending spree over, it’s not hard to wonder which is gonna drop faster: the New Year’s Eve ball or your credit score!  So if you’re like me and spent a ton on gifts, check out these three tricks to look a million at midnight and ring in the New Year on the cheap:

Sparkles and glitter are SO girly and festive.  You can incorporate it into your outfit with shoes, skirts or accessories.  Tip: buy an inexpensive solid colored skirt and lightly spray glitter all over it (see my skirt and spray selection below)

Skirt – $30 at Chicwish.com

Glitter Heels  – $50 at Zara.com

Glitter Spray (I’ve used on clothes and it washes out easily) – $3 at Walmart.com

Tank Top – $10 at Walmart.com

Go all out with hair and makeup.  If you normally wear your hair pin straight, pull out your curling iron and vice versa.  The idea is to go for a striking change; the same goes for makeup…if you’re a basic lipgloss/mascara girl, pullout your eyeliner and line up a cat eye with some false eye lashes.

Add a little red.  Sure, it’s a bit of a cliche color around the holidays.  But, it’s actually the “it” color this season (red demands attention and exudes sexiness).  Try a sexy red dress and simple red heels or throw on a scarf or lipstick.  Tip: if wearing red from head to toe tone it down elsewhere.

Red Dress – $25 at Tobi.com

Heels – $48 at Modcloth.com

Necklace – $42 at Macys.com

Clutch – $21 at Sears.com

No-Fuss Ways To Look Chic and Confident

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Sometimes the best way to boost your confidence and tackle life’s challenges is to start the day with the right outfit. Whether heading out to the office or getting the kids to school, there’s a lot of truth to the old adage, “when you look good you feel good.”   Exlcusively at Kmart, Sofia Vergara’s new line is the perfect example of looking like a superstar without breaking the bank. The pieces are are not only sexy and flattering, but best of all budget friendly and easy to incorporate into your personal style. Check out some of my favorite pieces from Sofia’s fab line below as well as some of my easy, no-fuss ways to looking chic and confident.

My morning routine starts with makeup. It doesn’t have to be a ton; for me it’s the mascara that makes me feel awake and ready to go

When picking out an outfit, I always go with what’s comfy and no-fuss. Jeans fit the bill when it comes to “looking good and feeling good” at the same time and they play a HUGE role in my wardrobe selection.

Sunglasses are an easy and glamourous way to hide those tired eyes.  I’m rarely seen  without them!

I keep my hair slightly disheveled; even when it’s just been washed.  it’s my lazy way of not having to mess with it while keeping the beachy look year round.

The ruching on this dress makes it not only sexy but super flattering! it’s a detail I look for in a lot of pieces in my wardrobe.

Love the shawl collar on this wrap sweater it’s a classic, sexy and perfect with jeggings (below) or with tweed trousers.

Jegging’s like these are chic and comfy.

Sleek boots like these are a no brainer and go with just about everything.

Sometimes you gotta work with what you got. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice any style points thanks to Sofia Vergara’s sexy and budget friendly new line at Kmart!

Buying Replica Watches That Last

December 19, 2011 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

Replica watches many not always be as good as they seem when you first look at them online. There are many things that can go wrong with a knockoff if you don’t know where to get it from or what to look for. The store and the warranty are very important when buying a new imitation watch and it is usually a sign of the quality you are getting. Despite the fact that fake watches are much cheaper then the originals, they shouldn’t only be good for a month or two. The hundreds of dollars spent on a copy should at least offer some lasting quality; otherwise it is not worth getting one.

No matter if is made of steel or has gold platting, every watch will show deterioration in time but the period it takes for it to turn into a bad looking timepiece is very important. Wearing a fake watch everyday for two months should not result in it becoming faded and ugly and if this may happen, it should be covered by the warranty agreement. Always read it carefully so that you know what to expect. Usually, a store that guarantees their products for a long period of time is confident that they are good enough to last at least that long. Those that only offer a 30 day warranty and the state of the watch is examined by them are something to avoid.

Of course, the aspect of the replica watch is not the only thing you need to worry about and the movement can sometimes be quite troublesome. If you notice anything wrong with it as soon as you get it, be sure to contact the store and get your money back or another model. It usually takes some time for the movement to break down so anything which is less than perfect from the start is not good.

In conclusion, the store should offer a long warranty period for fake watches because there are plenty of products out there that can create a bad image. Replica watches can be a great investment if they look and work properly.

Which Dress Style Suits My Shape?

December 15, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


There’s a great choice of plus size evening dresses out there, but finding ‘The One’ takes time and careful consideration over what suits your body type. As party season rolls back around take the guess work out of dress shopping and check at our guide to dressing to suit your shape.

Pear Shape

If you, like Kate Winslet and Jennifer Lopez, are biggest around the bottom and thighs, then your body shape is classified as a pear. Proudly display your slimmer upper half in a dress with a fitted top, whilst keeping the waist down a mystery. An embellished bodice or low neckline will draw attention up and away from the hips, whilst an a-line skirt will skim over your widest part and balance your proportions. Avoid tight and stretchy materials as these can make you look bigger than you are, and dresses which flounce at the bottom will add volume where it’s not needed.


Lucky hourglass ladies boast the most envied body shape. Out at the chest, in at the waist, and then out again at the hips, you join fellow hourglasses Nigella Lawson and Scarlett Johansson. Dresses were made to show off your womanly curves so there is little that you won’t suit, but to make the most of your figure, opt for a fit and flare dress that cinches at the waist and flutters outwards at the hips. A busy upper half will throw your body off balance, whilst skirts that cling too tightly can make you look bottom heavy.

V Shape

V shaped or ‘strawberry’ figures are broader up top than at the hips, creating an inverted triangle shape. If this sounds like you, you’re in good company; strawberry shaped celebrities include Jennifer Saunders and Catherine Zeta Jones. The aim of your evening dress should be to add width and volume around the hips, creating a more balanced look. Dress with a fitted bodice and a flared skirt will flatter and create proportion, whilst a dress with one strap will help to narrow your broad shoulders. Off the shoulder straps will have to opposite effect so avoid these, as well as sleeves with frills or puffs.

Rectangle Shape

Straight up and down? You have a classic rectangle shape, just like Cameron Diaz and Fern Britton and you should look for evening dresses that add definition and curve. Starting from the top, a halterneck or slash neck will look great on you, as will an embellished bodice that can help to break up your linearity. Any skirt style will suit your long, lean legs so feel free to add drama with a floor sweeping gown or go glamorous in a seductively short number. Dropped waists and dresses with no shape will emphasise your boyish frame so these are best avoided.
