Trend Bite: How To Wear A Long Tee Shirt

We all have items in our closet that we love, but just aren’t sure how to wear it. Or maybe we only always wear it the same way. It’s time to rework that wardrobe and make your clothes do double or even triple duty. Check out how I styled this long tee from the Kardashian Kollection at Sears.

Steal Charlize Theron’s Peplum Perfection

MTV award shows are my favorite. They’ve always got a fun vibe and good performances. The fashion isn’t always on point, but Charlize Theron’s look was a DO and you and do it too.

This peplum in red is a little more classic than trendy. Yes, peplums are hot right now, but a fitted red dress can go from season to season. It’s June and she wore it, but add some big bling and black heels for a holiday cocktail party. Wear it to a wedding or a hot date. It’s a special-occasion dress, but fits many occasions.


Here’s the dead ringer.

The Met Gala’s Top Trend Is…

Feathers! I thought this look was kind of out, but I was totally wrong and it’s back and beautiful. I’m hooked again and it’s thanks to these feathered celebs …Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, and Beyoncé.



These ladies were obviously wearing this on fancy evening attire, but my calendar seems to be missing red carpet events for the next few months. To rock the trend is real life, opt for a feathered accessory. A dressy little clutch is a great option because you can pair it with jeans and a tee, or wear to a wedding. Plus, it will be one fun detailed piece that elevates your outfit and will have major staying power since any age can pull off a feather clutch. Or snag a feathered dress for an upcoming wedding.

Maxi Dress Perfect For Curves

One of my readers hit me up on Facebook asking for a maxi dress that works on a curvy figure. I feel ya, girlfriend. I’m tiny, but boobs can makes certain maxis look more nighty. Opt for a dress that cinches in. That way your waist looks smaller and your curves do all the talking… without showing too much, of course.

Khloe Kardashian is the queen of this look. She knows to define her bust from her waist and she stays away from the moo-moo look (spelling??).

Here she is…

And here’s a menu of what you can be wearing for under $50.00…



Bright & Effortless Dress for Less

I’m a dress girl. It takes less thought to throw on a dress. Add a few accessories and done. I also love clean lines and a plain design.

I’ve been wanting a dress that’s effortless, but can be worked into different occasions. Snag a dress like this in a color and it immediately makes it stand out and more interesting.


I’ve found my dress and I’m planning on wearing it tomorrow, only I bought it in pink. Since it isn’t a busy design there are so many options. Allow me to list the few on my agenda. Boots and bangles, tribal wedges with my MNG bangles (also tribal), simple pearls, a topknot with bright lips, Bridget Bardot hair, a high braid and lots of mascara, neon necklaces, dark long-chain necklaces, my crystal floral necklace (obsessed!!!). Don’t pair all those looks together. They’re just for inspiration.

Lace Dresses for Less

This is going to be a busy and fashion-filled week for this fashionista. I’m filming a slew of TV segs for WBRE’s PA Live! (watch every Tuesday at 4pm!!), attending a garden tea party at Apricot Lane with Whitney Port (you can come too!!!!), then wrapping the week with fashions galore at the Simon Fashion Now event going on at the King of Prussia Mall (and others too!).

Today’s blog post is dedicated to a trend I can wear to all three of these events, and just wore this past weekend too (I clearly really love this trend). And without further adieu, the trend I’m speak of is LACE (incase the title didn’t give it away)!


I’m loving lace in bright colors because -1. It’s fun and springy. 2. It’s still feminine and fancy, but more playful. 3. I’m craving color!!!

Here’s my sale-rack find I just bought at Urban Outfitters. Turns out it’s $10.00 less online. Think they’ll honor it in-store if I bring in my receipt?

Tag: Thistlepearl Lace Racerback Dress, Was $69.00, Now $29.99 at Urban Outfitters.

Sunglasses – Olsenboye Cat Eyes, $15.00 at JCPenney.

Shoes – Lucky Brand Sale-Rack last Year.

Bag- C/O LuLu’s from the winter.

Take Note: Dress comes in electric blue and black too.

And here are my hand-picked skinny-budget buys. Now I need to limit it down. Leave a comment and help me pick my next lacey label for less.



Swing into Stripes

Stripes = always on trend. ALWAYS! Retro stripes? Even more perfect! The girl from the T-Mobile commercial is my inspiration,  but I kind of love my find WAY more than her dress. Sorry T-Mobile!

This dress is perfect for Easter, so stop worrying about what you’re going to wear. Ohh and check back for Easter egg manicures! I’m going to attempt a DIY :)


Tag: Colorblocked Swing Dress, $22.90 at Forever 21.

How To Wear: If it’s cold out add black tights and black pumps. A statement necklace will instantly elevate the look. Try this one out for size.

P.S. Don’t you just LOVE the bow?
