Kelly Ripa’s outfit still holds up as a fabulous Summer classic.  Love the way the navy tank plays against the black and white striped skirt and tan sandals.  Sure, a skin tight striped skirt can be difficult to pull off, but before you shake your head in dismay check out the more figure flattering a-line skirt that will give you the same look with a little more ease. 🙂  Get Kelly’s chic look for less with pieces from Shop Ruche, DSW, Heels.com and more!

Celebrity Redo: Halle Berry

The gorgeous Halle Berry out for dinner but looking like she’s ready for a play-date at the park.  It’s a cute outfit; I just wish she snazzed it up a bit for the dinner environment.  So, I pretty much scrapped the entire outfit and re-dressed her in linen slacks, a white tank and a wrap top.  I kept her jewelry at a minimum but couldn’t help myself and added Alex and Ani bracelets that are well worth the investment.  What do you think of Halle’s look?

Bangles On A Budget

November 19, 2008 by

I literally have hundreds of bangles! They’re my go to accessories when I feel my outfit needs a little something just to kick it up a notch and more often than not I’ll wear about 5 – 6 bangles at once (ala Madonna).  Bangles have a way of adding a whimsical feel to any look and the best thing about them is that they don’t have to be expensive to look good.  My trick when buying affordable bangles is to stay away from solid gold and silver. I always look for bangles that have some type of detail to them because it helps give the bangle a “richer and fuller” look. Here are a few:

Cinnabar Bangle – $3.99

Fourty Fourty Bangle Set – $4.80

Seaside Bangles – $28

Studded Bangle Set (my favorite of the bunch) – $5.50

Leather And Chain Wrap Bracelet – $26
These aren’t exactly  bangles but I think it would look fantastic piled up!
