There is nothing more valuable to your appearance than wearing proper undergarments. Undergarments have the power to completely alter an outfit. I mean, what’s the sense of wearing a fabulous Nicole Miller dress you got for $35… View Post

In other words, your wardrobe is probably missing several key essentials that allow you to transition easily from one outfit to the next. It’s time to… View Post
Share Tweet +1 Pin EmailShares 398There is absolutely no reason why plus size sistas can’t be fabulous at the beach. It’s taken decades for swimwear designers to catch on to the fact that, hey, full-figured women like to swim, sunbathe, and worship the sun just like their thinner counterparts. Whether you’re pear shaped, apple shaped, big bosomed, sporting a lot… View Post

As luck would have it, dos and don’ts of style are aplenty this summer, so if you have any questions—hopefully, you’ll find the answer here. As always, whatever you decide to assemble, make sure to wear that… View Post

As a fan of the “weekend warrior” mentality, as often as I can afford I get out of dodge on Friday night and don’t return until Sunday. Sure, it’s exhausting, but the fun, adventure, exploration and excitement make it all worth it.

With so many ladies getting in on the rainbow hair trend, stepping out in pink, purple or blue hair (or all at the same time), I had to try it myself. Admittedly, I’m more of a conservative fashionista who goes for the element of bold surprise: fluorescent nails to go along… View Post

No matter if the sun is out and scalding or it’s June gloom, or whether I am bikini-ready and tan or a tad out of shape, shopping for sunglasses is just like shopping for shoes: always satisfying, always fun, and since there are as many brands and… View Post

What can drive us crazy, though, are 1) people who decorate their entire yard with so many chimes that we need earplugs in the slightest breeze and 2) chimes that are too cutesy. After all, we want subtle sounds that create a feeling of zen, without looking like we’re… View Post

My sandals, flip flops, and flats have been in a consistent rotation ever since, which means one thing: I have to get used to doing my nails.
