Who Inspires You? #ARWOMAN

I’m always up for anything that celebrates amazing successful woman; so when the chic store Atterley Road told me about their new campaign #ARWOMAN and asked who inspires me…I jumped at the opportunity.

Ever since I was in high school I’ve been a huge fan of Drew Barrymore’s free spirit. As a kid my bedroom walls were covered with teen magazine clippings, movie posters and her infamous Guess ads – I was obsessed with her beauty and fallibility. She was relatable and I admired her spunky and ever-changing style. The once precocious child actor in E.T. that went on to flash Letterman is now a respected producer with an incredible line of beauty products and her own wine label!

Who Inspires You? #ARWOMAN

The woman is amazing and someone who continues to inspire me and she’s definitely worthy of a #ARWOMAN hashtag.

About the #ARWOMAN campaign:

Empowered and empowering. That’s what makes an #ARWOMAN. We are inspired by all of the amazing women around us. Every. Single. Day. But what we really want to know is, who inspires you?

How to Steal the Show With Your New Year’s Eve Dress This Year

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 1.02.45 PMCan you believe another year has almost drawn to a close? We might not have gotten through all 365 days just yet, but it’s never too early to start planning your New Year’s Eve dress. Many women have a tough time choosing what to wear for New Year’s, so here are our tips on how to be the belle of the ball:

 

 

  • Kill the holiday colors!

 

Showing up at a New Year’s party in holiday colors is the fashion equivalent of not taking your Christmas lights down till Easter. Christmas is over, so put your red and green back in the closet for next year—it’s time to turn over a new leaf! There are many colors that can work well for New Year’s Eve dresses, but we recommend going with either gold or silver. Dresses in these colors can be extremely eye-catching without being overwhelming and they go nicely with the optimistic vibe of a holiday dedicated to optimism, resolutions, and looking forward to the coming year. Alternatively you can even work some brighter spring colors into your ensemble, but do it in small doses—remember, we may be looking ahead but it will still be many months before flowers are blooming outside.

 

  • Sparkles and sequins.Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 1.02.34 PMAlso going hand in hand with the New Year’s spirit is anything that sparkles or glitters—and that means sequins are a YES for New Year’s Eve party dresses. As always with sequins, think carefully about how to gleam without blinding anyone: a red sequin dress, for example, is extremely showy whereas a silver or blue sequin dress, or a classic black sequin number, is a nice contrast of reserved and glittery. For brighter dresses, consider those that have sequin details but are not head-to-toe shimmer.

  • Have a ball.
  • Unlike pumpkins at Halloween, turkeys at Thanksgiving, or trees at Christmas, New Year’s Eve doesn’t exactly have its own trademarked symbol. But if there is one iconic image associated with New Year’s, it’s the dropping of the ball at Times Square, with all the excitement that final countdown entails. That means New Year’s is the perfect time to rustle up some spherical earrings. Just make sure they don’t look like Christmas tree ornaments—see also #1 above!

  • Relax.
  • Remember, New Year’s is the end of the holiday season and by now most people are nearly partied out. You can choose virtually any style dress that fits you well and enjoy your champagne in style; there is no strict theme you need to master for New Year’s Eve.


    What are you going to wear when the ball drops this year?

I still can’t believe how much Zac Efron’s style has changed in the past couple of years.  Replacing his surfer boy look is now a more mature eclectic style!  In this sleek understated look he’s wearing black skinny jeans, black denim jacket and a brown tee.  It’s the perfect weekend or casual date night look.  Might have to try this look out myself!  Below are some affordable and investment prices to get Zac’s look.

Get Zac Efron's Look

Jacket: Raleigh Denim Jacket (as seen above) , Highway 61 Denim Jacket or Denim Trucker Jacket 

Black Skinny Jeans: Native Youth Skinny Jeans (seen above), Naked and Famous Jeans or Shredded Skinny Jeans 

Tee: Rag & Bone Tee (seen above), T by Alexander Wang or Surplus Tee\

Sneakers: Chucks (as seen above), Waxed Sneakers or Vans

I’ve already put down the suede winter mesh  Nike Roshe on my Christmas list (see the ones I want here) and now I’m all out looking for some sneakers style inspiration because to be honest it’s been a while since I put any type of sneakers into heavy rotation. Hopefully Santa will gift me with the sneaks but in the meantime you guys can check my favorite casual street style looks.

Celebrity Copycat: Rihanna’s Look for Less!

December 11, 2014 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

One of the main reasons I love the cold weather is because you can easily dress up jeans and a tee with a sharp coat.  Rihanna gave her jeans and tee a more polished look by pairing them with nude pumps (a classic), a oversized coat and  I love the fun touch that her sunglasses gave her outfit!
