I love me a long sleeve mini dress… and when it has pockets, even better! They’re so sexy in an unassuming way: In cooler weather, pair it with tights and booties for an edgy yet feminine vibe. During warmer weather throw on some sandals for an effortless look. Check out this simple black long sleeve mini worn three different ways!

Fashion Tips: How To Battle the Holiday Bulge

January 3, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

As our digestive systems continue to work overtime long after we’ve gorged on rich holiday foods and sweets, a lot of us are left wishing we could return the extra pounds as easily as unwanted gifts.  While I’m certainly not the the best person to give diet tips (heck I’m still clearing out the Holiday cookies) I do have a few tricks that I swear by when trying to hide that little extra bulge.  Check out my tips and some of my favorite pieces below!

A classic fave outfit of mine is a pair of flared pants or jeans with a button down, blazer and a pretty scarf dangling in front.  It’s instantly chic, never goes out of style and the scarf and blazer camouflages any flaws (while the flared bottom balances it all out).

Blazer at net-a-porter.com

Blouse at Aritzia.com

Scarf at Mrporter.com

Pumps at Nordstrom.com

Make sure anything worn on top lays right over your hips (I love a good vest cause they’re great for layering).  Anything longer will creat a tent like look (not cute), and anything shorter will defeat the purpose of this post 🙂Fringe Vest at Buckle.com

Cardigan at Macys.com

Let Banded bottom tops, sweaters and dresses take the work out of sucking it in all night. They’re not only comfy but surprisingly sexy!

Black Banded Bottom Dress at Windsorstore.com

Look for ruchin on tops and dresses; they’re perfect when trying to camoflauge the lumps and bumps (and if you happen to find a top or dress in a print with ruching EVEN better).  I love ruching because it not only hides imperfections, it accentuates curves.

Don’t go for the bigger sizes: either get it altered or get yourself a full bodied spanx.  I prefer this one because it’s SO much comfier….no need to be pulling at it all night or worrying if it’s creating a bulge elsewhere.  Wear underneath any of the pieces featured for extra figure flattering!

Bodysuit at Spanx.com

The higher the heels the better!  I know heels won’t hide the bulge, but they give you a sense of sexy confidence and when paired with any of the above tips – you’re good to go!

Fall Cashmere Favorites

October 23, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Fall is my favorite time of year.  The air is chilled, the leaves are crimson red and burnt orange, and I’m comfortably wrapped in a beloved cashmere sweater.  Soft, luxurious and in so many styles to choose from.  Check out a few of my chic Fall cashmere favorites from Pure Collection below!

Merino Blend Round Neck Cardigan, which is the perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe (and with holidays around the corner a perfect gift as well!).

I’m also a big fan of this  Cashmere Longline Cap Sleeve Tank because of its endless options.  A perfect layering piece, pair it with denim while on the run; throw it over a simple white shirt or even alone with a camisole for a sexier feel.

The Cashmere Sweatshirt – MY favorite.  It doesn’t get any cozier or comfier… and it’s a sweatshirt… enough said!

Cashmere Sequin Cardigan – Chic enough for day or night.  Pair with just about any of your Fall favorites like corduroys, flared jeans a LBD or with trousers for an elegant touch.

Cashmere Cape – One of Fall’s hottest trends!  Easy to wear and I love the details in the split neck and deep rib trims. The beauty in a cape is that it does all the work for your outfit so keep it simple and let it take command of anything you pair it with.  Tip: go monochromatic underneath for a completely effortless look.
