Look! Before You Leave the House

Ladies and gentlemen, the Style Council is in session – and they’re less than impressed by your laziness.

Look before you leave the house

Today’s first motion lies in questioning your sheer lack of style. You make Woody Allen look like a fashionista by comparison. You’ve got dry skin to match your fried air, and the kind of dress that could melt people’s retinas, like the end of Indiana Jones.

The Style Council is less than impressed. Most of them can’t believe you leave the house looking like that. Others are just this side of publically denouncing you. And Cara Delevingne has had it up to here with your lack of eyebrow game.

Just Say No to Socks with Sandals

Soooo…the other day I was watching QVC. There was nothing too good on, and it was Isaac Mizrahi Live, and that’s always good for some entertainment.   Plus, I love Isaac Mizrahi. It’s all good. Anyway, Isaac and the host were discussing sandals. And he busts out with this nonsense of SOCKS and SANDALS are a GOOD look. Uhh…West Chester, we’ve got a problem.

Loafers and Moccasins to Transition Into Fall

Can you believe that it’s almost fall already?  While, yes, I do realize it’s the middle of July, school starts in a lot of areas in less than a month.  Whoa!

Loafers and moccasins to transition into fall

That really almost doesn’t matter, though.  Know why?  Moccasins and loafers are a great style of shoe for the summer.  Most of us don’t think that way, but they are. I know I always think of loafers with jeans and like, a blazer. But no!  They’re more flexible than that.  We should start thinking of loafers and moccasins more in the way we think of boat shoes.

Get the Look: Christina Aguilera’s Shab Haircut

Have you given in to your summer haircut yet? While I like the idea of long hair, I really just can’t commit to it. I think it’s partially because my hair is thick and wavy, and kind of has a mind of its own. It goes into a bob really well, and so I’ve sort of resigned myself to that. Recently, though, I tried out The Shab.

‘The Shab’ is a modern progression of the bob, adding more life to the traditional cut. The layered razor cut gives it edge and lends well to a rocker style or beach texture for summer. Fun and playful with an attitude! And so perfect for curly and wavy hair! I’m in great company, as celebs like Christina Aguilera have also taken The Shab for a test drive.

Modcloth Mix and Match Swimsuits

For most of my life, I have practically lived in the water.  From sometime around April, when it was no longer instantaneous hypothermia, you knew to look out by the pool if you were looking for me.  This lasted until October or so, when instantaneous hypothermia started up again.

Modcloth Mix and Match Swimwear

When you’re a water lover like that, you need one thing – a lot of swimsuits.  NO ONE wants to put a wet swimsuit back on.  UGH!  These mix and match swimsuits from ModCloth are super cute, so trendy, and really bring a lot of variety to your swimsuit wardrobe.  I really love the retro-vintage styles that ModCloth offers.  Of course, you’re going to need a great pair of sunglasses, too!
