Now this is how you wear a cropped top! I particularly like how Alessandra paired it with a maxi skirt and flats when she could have easily worn it with a mini or shorts. It’s sexy in all the right places and perfectly balanced (sexy on top and modest below).  Get Alexandra look for less with pieces from Kmart, Topshop & more!

Selena Gomez‘s outfit is so sexy and feminine!  Great day to night look – just swap out the heels for ballerina flats.  Want a more reserved version of her look?  Try a pencil skirt or slacks.  Tip:  For a more day to day friendly look try the peplum top with denim.

Stripes For All Seasons

August 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Stripes, especially black and white, are one of my favorite prints for all year round (they will never go out of style!).  During the summer stripes can give outfits a classic, nautical feel (perfect example seen here) and for cooler weather they stand out among solids.  They key is to let the stripes do all the work…for example, if pairing with florals keep the print dainty; if wearing with bright colors, keep lines simple.  And remember, stripes can be rocked in a lot ways whether hats, layered tanks, or scarfs (just make sure not to wear the all at once lol).



 Striped blazer $19.99 at T.J. Maxx, tank top c/o meet mark, skinny mini-flare jeans $19 at Old Navy, black wedges $15 at Charlotte Russe (similar version here), studded bow accent clutch from Yesstyle (also seen here), Penny Wayfarer sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com, rings c/o meet mark.

I’ve been meaning to do this Lauren Conrad Copycat post for a while but never got around to it until now.  Love how the red, cutesy skirt is perfectly toned down by the basic white tank and black sandals (the classic tote is a great finishing touch).  I know I say it a lot, but this outfit really is the epitome of an effortless and transitional style and I can totally see it worn with a turtleneck and tights for fall.  Get Lauren’s look for less from She Inside, Forever21, Peggy Li Creations & more!

Selena Gomez looks so pretty in this season’s “it” color, minty green (and the dress is perfectly matched with nude pumps).  I love how she balances her style with her age – it’s always youthful yet tasteful making this an outfit that can be worn by any woman regardless of age!  Tip: Nude pumps are a must-have so invest in a good pair they’ll never go out of style.  Get Selena’s look for less with pieces from Macy’s, Dillard’s & more!

Celebrating 30 Sexy Years of GUESS

June 6, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Guess is celebrating 30 sexy years of innovative designs, pride, and success with the release of a limited-edition women’s capsule collection launching in stores and online on April 20. The collection captures the brand’s industry-changing creations from the past 30 years, combining original styling and vintage washes with modern influences.

While the iconic ads made a star of Claudia Schiffer and a host of other models, my personal style was most influenced by Drew Barrymore’s participation.  I was in high school when Drew was featured and my bedroom walls were covered from corner to corner with her Guess ads torn from the pages of every magazine I could get my hands on. Without doubt, the black-and-white images captured her unbridled free spirit and raw, sexual rebelliousness.  It also sparked my own imagination, and to this day my fashion sense still leans toward an edgy, boho style full of denim. The only downside is that I even cut my hair short and spiky to look just like Drew, which was not a good look for me!

The new Guess collection drew inspiration from iconic pieces from the Guess archives and updated them with a modern twist. High-waisted denim cigarette pants with bold daisies, animal prints, vintage tie-waist button-down tops, and a delicate lace bustier, which Claudia made famous in her first Guess campaign. As part of the 30th Anniversary celebration, Guess is providing customers a unique and special experience, with the launch of a micro site, www.Guess1981.com, which will go live on April 5. The Guess 30th Anniversary site will be an interactive platform for customers to preview the new campaign while connecting with their favorite, must-have pieces. Fans can also view a calendar of Guess’ 30th Anniversary special events happening throughout 2012. Check out some of my favorites below and tell me who your favorite Guess model was.

My Celebrity Style Inspiration: Jennifer Lopez

June 5, 2012 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Last month I featured Jessica Alba as my day-to-day style inspiration.  This time around I’m highlighting Jennifer Lopez as someone I admire and always turn to for style and beauty inspiration (particularly for a night-on-the-town look).

Whether singing, dancing, acting or judging, Jennifer’s style accentuates everything she does (and she does it all!). And, being a New York Puerto Rican myself, I can’t help but love how she embraces her sexy curves without going overboard.  You can always count on Jennifer’s unapologetic, attention-grabbing looks for style inspiration whether she’s channeling old school Hollywood  glamour or her NY roots.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  Her flawless hair do’s never go out of style and her natural makeup always looks effortless.

This season of American Idol is proof that the woman is always evolving and raising the bar.  Sure, Jennifer’s style has come a long way since her Fly Girl days, but it just keeps on getting better!

 We think its tremendous popularity is proof that the 2012 Corolla offers the ideal blend of comfort, value and safety. In it, you’ll find a surprising number of high-end features, like available Display Audio system. It offers remarkable performance and fuel efficiency, plus an impressive list of standard safety features. Factor in its legendary reliability, and it’s even more apparent that Corolla is the smart choice.
