Posted 1 year ago by Amanda Raye
Just because the leaves are changing, doesn’t mean you can’t wear floral prints. Right? According to Hollywood it’s fine! Fergie, Britney and Kim K were all recently spotted wearing sexy bodycon dresses in fun floral prints from designers such as Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Michael Lo Sordo .
Michael Lo Sordo: $615
Stella McCartney: $1,755
Stunning! You too can look red carpet ready in a floral print dress, but without breaking the bank. We spotted this sexy number on Flirt Catalog the other day that’s almost identical to the crazy expensive one Fergie is wearing for only $32! Snag it here.
If you’re still in high school, homecoming is only a few weeks away. Don’t hesitate, give the floral bodycon dress trend a try. Scared of tight things? Try peplum instead!
Office Style: Henna, Curls and Classics
Posted 2 years ago by Melissa Murphy
The night before I had attended one of my favorite Mommy blogger networks, Mommys Links Glam Me event. It was a really fun time with a great group of girls. There were women empowerment speakers, fun vendors, and swag. At the party, I got my first henna tattoo and my hair curled. So when I got home, I put my hair in a loose bun, and secured it with a few bobby pins – a tip my regular stylist at BlowNY gave me.
The next day my hair and henna looked fab. Don’t ever underestimate the power of a professional with a curling iron;those curls lasted for days. So getting ready for work the next day was pretty easy. I think subconsciously the ornate orange design on my hand lead me to pick that bold orange pencil skirt that I paired with a simple white button down shirt.
You can never have too many crisp dry cleaned, fitted, collared shirts. They are a classic item that will always come in handy, and never go out of style. I recommend investing in a few.
