Celebrity Copycat: Kim Kardashian’s Look for Less!

December 18, 2012 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Kim Kardashian’s outfit is perfect for the holidays.  Not crazy about the bag so I swapped it out with a animal print one from her Kardashian Kollection over at Sears. For the most part I wear skinny jeans, but I do love me a good fitted pair of flared jeans and Kim’s are the perfect example.  I’m a curvy girl and while I can wear just about any type of skinny jeans, flared ones are always more flattering and adds balance to my curves (which in return makes me look thinner).  Yes,  I’ve come to accept and appreciate my curves but I also don’t mind if a pair of jeans knocks off a few pounds 🙂  Get Kim’s look for less with pieces from Sears, Mango & more!

Fashion Tips: How To Battle the Holiday Bulge

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).

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!

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!

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!

Celebrity Redo: Lea Michele

Lea Michele is adorable, but her outfit is plain and frumpy. For the redo, I gleefully swapped out the slouchy sweater for a long cocoon cardigan and paired it with flared trousers and heels (to create a long, lean look). What do you think?

Spring 2011 Trend: The 70’s Are Back!

February 2, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

You’ve heard it from Rachel Zoe, and now it has been confirmed – the 70s are back! Not the denim shorts and beaded headbands, but the Halston and Yves Saint Laurent 70s fashion that was all about super luxurious fabrics, decadent prints and silks, and above all else, glamour. Etro is reintroducing flared pants, we’re seeing jumpsuits and lamé at Marc Jacobs, and magazines and celebrities are putting their spin on all sorts of 70s-inspired outfits.  Read more

Although I have never really paid attention to Jordana Brewster’s style before, this adorable outfit caught my eye.  I particularly like the fact that her outfit is trendy yet simple (although I’m not feeling the bag, so I swapped it out with a funky shoulder bag).

Celebrity Redo: Rachel Zoe

There’s nothing wrong with Rachel Zoe’s outfit (other than the t-shirt being a bit too long) and I’m not trying to provide a “look for less” post.  I’m just a fan of her style and wanted to have some fun re-doing her outfit.  I truly love each and every single piece in this post, from the bat wing leather jacket and lace top to the flared jeans.  What do you think of Rachel’s outfit?  Would you want to wear it as is or would you have changed it up a bit too?

Celebrity Redo: Get Jessica Alba’s Look for Less!

April 20, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

Jessica Alba’s lighter hair definitely gives her a more vibrant look, but I think her outfit ages her a bit.  I decided to swap out her high waisted straight legs with flared jeans for a more fun look.  I also replaced the white button down with a simple white tank for a more airy feel and wrapped it up with a cropped jacket.  I even decided to switch out Jessica’s leopard print bag (it’s just not my style).  Lastly, to balance out the flared jeans, I threw in a pair of t strapped platforms.  The overall outfit is a bit pricey but each piece is extremely versatile (examples below). Hope you like it!
