The 90 day challenge!

Happy New Year! Guys and Dolls!!

So we made it! Every year we come up with crazy new years resolutions for the year and about 2 months into the year we quickly forget what resolutions we came up with in the 1st place. I am very guilty of doing this. However I am going to challenge myself to complete at least 90 days to get into some kind of shape and into a healthy lifestyle (I live a pretty healthy lifestyle but I could do better).  For those of you who do not know. I suffer from fibromyalgia and a seizure disorder. I am still pretty young and I have children and a hubby,that I am trying to stick around for. So that is the main reason behind pushing myself to do this. I will post a picture of what I look like now and each month I will update the photo. I am doing this because it will be nice to have someone else hold me accountable.

Now not only will I be doing this for my NEW YEAR to a NEW ME, I will be posting sneak peak pictures of my Spring collection. I will also offer a new “Contest” for you all.Let me know what you will do for the New You this 2013. Best Story will win a gift card!

Happy New Year’s Eve!

I have been away enjoying my family for the past couple of weeks. I am sure you have been doing the very same.

Well I am back and now it’s time to party!! We are leaving behind the mistakes, broken promises we made to oursleves, failed goals we set in place. We’ve lost loved ones. Gained new ones and have discovered that this side of the ground is not so bad. We survived the impending doom of 12/22/2012, (haha had to put that in there) Now we hold our heads up high, put on our best duds, and kiss 2012 goodbye and welcome 2013 with open arms!

A quick PSA for all of you out there. Now there will be a lot of partying and possible drinking out there tonight. I want to quickly say that if you are going out tonight make sure you are safe and can make it to the 2013 year without ending up in the morgue. Drink and party responsibly! I want to see your lovely faces next year!


Now on to the Fashion….

What will you be wearing? If your in Illinois hopefully something warm it’s a monster out there. Gentlemen I have come across a really nice way to tie a tie. Check out my boy in this video.  It’s called the Eldredge knot very sleek!

Sorry everyone! Last week I was suppose to bring you my picks from the American Music Awards 2012. I have a perfectly good explanation for that, my computer was down for a bit and on top of that life got away form me for a sec. However I am back and ready to give you want your wanting!

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you enjoy the day? Were you able to relish in the fact that your on the right side of the ground and that at least one person Loves you beyond measure? I hope so. My Thanksgiving was just that, I am truly thankful.

OK on to the fun stuff. Besides some of the acts being completely breath taking there were some not so great acts that shall remain nameless! However they did not let me down by way of fashion. I’ll give you my top three ladies and top three gents.

Let’s start off with Heidi Klum wearing her stunning Alexander Vauthier brocade dress complete with thigh-high split.

She's golden: The supermodel was still wearing her stunning Alexander Vauthier brocade dress complete with thigh-high split


Next one my list Carrie Underwood. This country superstar wore a stunning Aded Mahfouz Fall 2012 magenta gown


A Lady who always shows us that being a certain age should not limit your ability to be beautiful.

Gloria Estefan in a green metallic full length gown!


Now for the Gentlemen. For some strange reason the “hammer pants” were back in style on the red carpet. It was either that or the “prison swag thing” which i feel has gone a little too far in the fashion world, and not in a good way either. However there were at least a few gents whom I feel got it right. The winners are…..

The Band: The Wanted took it home for me. Each guy with his own style and yet somehow they all fit in one band. Awesome job guys!

Tom Parker - The 40th American Music Awards - Arrivals

Will-i-am Another fav of mine. His unique style always keeps you guessing!

will.i.am 2012 American Music Awards

I’m Back Everyone!

Great day to you all!!


So as I mentioned over a week ago, I took some time off to take care of some very sick children. Now that we are all on the mend it’s time to get back to the nitty gritty of  the fashion world. Taking this time off gave me a great sense of how I can shape my website, my company, and each and everything I put my mind to.  This week we are going to focus on outfits for special occasions. What to wear with what and how to coordinate with your spouse without being matchy matchy . Take a look below, I have three different outfits that will provide comfort, warmth, and fun. Let’s begin shall we….

Ladies! You can never go wrong with a Chanel  two piece suit. One it provides warmth usually made from a twill or tightly woven material. Two it is functional because you can easily dress it up or keep it low key depending on what sort of top you place with it or the accessories. I will put those up in a moment. The other thing about this type of suit is that it can fit a lot of different body types and look amazing. For the gentlemen due to the lack of variety  in the fashion industry you have to be a little more creative and dress yourselves up with accessories. Take the example I have up above. Your basic three piece suit and here his tie and handkerchief compliments his date and keeps him stylish without being to matchy.  Men it is important to really have fun with your accessories even with a basic suit. Ladies back to you here are some accessories to go with your suit.

This combination gives to the ability to be chic and very simple at the same time.

The next outfit is for those who want to be a little more adventurous try this look on for size.


fall winter outfits 2012

Again great for different body types  a tapered waist dress with pencil type skirt bottom. Very sliming effect. Also great for every bust size.

Gentlemen you can play it up with color and pattern here. However you don’t want the pattern to be to busy it can easily distract the eye and make it uncomfortable to look at you. Keep the patterns small this effect also slims you.

Finally For those who are wanting to really take it to the next level

Go bold with a color with shimmer. Also don’t be afraid to go with some length. Unless you are smaller in height. For those who are under 5’6 I would take this look and cut off the bottom about 10 inches making it the proper length for your height.


Gentlemen take break form the traditional suit and don something a little more exotic. Adds intrigue and mystery and sex appeal. 

This week I am hoping to bring you different types of clothing to really prepare you for the holidays coming up. If you have questions or want me to help you out with an unique outfit to wear for your specific body type let me know. Have a great day and check me out in a couple of days.
