Say No to Getting High

Sigh.  I love heels (who knew?), so this is hard to say.  Really hard.  But too high is too high.  Heels are still OK, but pass on the ridiculously sky-high ones that have the potential to put our image and our ankles on shaky ground.

Skip the Kool-Aid Man graphic, crude wording and sloppy top designs and opt for toned-down patterns.  Wear abstract styles or other fun looks that turn heads for all the right reasons.

Be Kind to Animals

Puppies and kittens are adorable, I don’t care how old you are.  But declaring your fondness with a feline-embroidered knapsack (at work) takes us from cute to kitschy (bad kinda kitschy) in a heartbeat.  Goodbye, Hello Kitty.  Embrace that animal instinct with subtly.  It’s the Year of the Snake, so why not pay homage to phyton-esque textures?

Pretty in Punk (ish)
