Fabulous Fashion Advice: The Bachelor is a mess! March 3, 2009

So…here’s my take on the whole Bachelor finale…which by the way has a part 2, what more drama could possibly ensue?  I think the whole thing is one big mess.  I don’t know if you caught this or not BUT…last night when they played back Molly leaving and telling Jason he was making a big mistake…I’m not positive but I am pretty sure that they allowed more of the conversation to be shown in the play back used last night to show Molly.  She (Molly) was telling him he had made a huge mistake and then she said “I’m afraid Melissa is going to wake up one day and decide that she doesn’t want to be married to you anymore and then you’ll be hurt again, just like last time.”   Then you see this huge expression of OMG on Jason’s face and she proceeds to leave.  So here’s my thing.  I think Jason did want to marry Melissa…and Molly, knowing the whole situation, which buttons to push and what words would cut deepest said basically…she’s going to leave you just like your ex wife did…are you sure you want that to happen because I would never do that to you.  That’s what I think made everything change.  I think she purposely said the thing she knew would hurt him the most and get him most agitated and unsure of his decision.  I am very sorry for Melissa because she was truly in love with him and you could see it when they all three were together…it just fit.  I’m sure Molly is truly in love with him too, obviously since 2 minutes after he broke off his engagement she is making out with him like nothing ever happened…Awkward!  By the way…all this happened in front of MILLIONS of viewers…not thousands.  MILLIONS!  Wow…sad times!  So I hope they all find who they are really truly in love with and I wish them all love , happiness and contentment!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Get your panties out of a wad! July 2, 2008

SO…you know, there are some things you just SHOULDN’T do.  For example: jump off a cliff, cross the street without looking both ways, jump in front of a car, wear underwear too small or that don’t fit right!  I cannot tell you how many times I have seen people…mainly girls wear underwear that rides up and all of a sudden they have 4 butt cheeks!  It’s not fabulous!  I saw someone a few days ago that had on jeans A. that were too tight, and too short and B. had on underwear that didn’t fit.  Now, don’t get me wrong…I’m not checking out other girls butts…BUT (no pun intended) sometimes you can’t help noticing.  It just made me so sad for her because she had NO CLUE she looked so ridiculous!  So here’s the deal…first off get underwear that fit.  Don’t buy a small when you KNOW you need a medium!  And don’t play like…”oh I’m an extra small”…please!, everyone that sees you from behind knows you have a J. Lo butt and need a medium.  It’s nothing to be ashamed of…you’re blessed…take advantage of it and work it!  Just don’t work it in panties that are too small!  Second, get jeans that fit…see my jeans blog!  Third…if you ARE going to wear something tight, buy a thong…or go commando (side note…GROSS).  You don’t have to get some kind of string bikini thong…Victoria’s Secret has plenty of “no show” panties and nice thongs that range from butt floss to more of a half cheek kind of fit.  The key though is to get them the right size.  You don’t want to be the girl that has her panties cutting so deep into your butt that it divides it by 4.  Not good.  So, go to a lingerie store and find underwear that will fit and not ride up.  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Get some manners! June 21, 2008

SO…this post isn’t really about fashion but it is most definitely about being fabulous! I got up this morning and got to thinking about what exactly being fabulous entails. Of course I thought of the fashion aspect first but then my mind also wandered. Being Fabulous isn’t just about looking great. To truly BE fabulous you should also have tact, kindness, gentleness, compassion and good manners…scratch that…GREAT manners. You know I’ve been dating the love of my life for going on 6 months now and I ALWAYS thank him for buying my meals and whatever the entertainment of the night might be, if it’s a trip to the theater or a simple movie rental from Blockbuster. There just really are no excuses for bad manners…not if you’re going to be Fabulous! I mean lets just start with basics…if you aren’t saying please and thank you…then get to using those words. A lot of the manner thing is stuff that you would think would be common sense but I’m telling you I have met a ton of people that are clueless. You wouldn’t believe how many times I have seen women come out of the bathroom stall and go straight out the door… HELLO!!!! WASH YOUR HANDS! That’s just gross! It is certainly not something a Fabulous person would do!  Also, thanking your waiter/waitress for their service. Everytime they come to fill up my drink I always thank them. It’s just the right thing to do.  Just because they are serving you doesn’t mean they are your slave. You know the old saying “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar”…well I completely believe that…but I think that the motivation can be wrong sometimes. If you aren’t being nice (the honey part) to that person because you feel like it or because you genuinely want to, then you are just being a fake. Now I understand that there are some circumstances that you have to MAKE yourself be nice to someone…I get that…and that’s fine.  But if you find yourself more times than not, being nice to someone just to get something…you need to get a handle on it and humble yourself. I heard this story once of these two Divas that were going to be performing on the same night in the same venue…and one of them wrote in her contract that the building would have to put in new duct work and vents and air units on her side of the building because she didn’t want to breathe in the same air as the other Diva.  All I could think when I heard that story was…what a jerk!  I also heard of this male rapper who only wanted green skittles so the people had to go through all these skittle bags to pick out the green ones.  How stupid is that?   It’s ridiculous and it’s NOT anywhere close to Fabulous!   Just because you are Fabulous doesn’t mean that everyone is your slave, and it doesn’t mean that you get your way all the time.  That’s NOT what being fabulous is about.   There is a great book that Kate Spade put out a couple of years ago called MANNERS.  I think everyone should have this book.  It’s Fabulous.  It gives great advice…some of it is things you wouldn’t have even thought about before.  So just consider these things.  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Got a date? June 12, 2008

So…You only have 15 min to get ready for a hot date? Here’s what you do…makeup first…under eye concealer…powder, blush, pencil or shadow eye liner…dark lip gloss, jeans, tight Tshirt, huge earrings, bangle bracelet, highest heels you have, and throw your hair up in a high “New York” pony tail. You’ll look sleek, sophisticated, but also fun and not stuffy…very sexy to a man. They want you to LOOK high maintenance…not BE high maintenance! Remember…BE FABULOUS!
