Fabulous Fashion Advice: What is that smell? June 24, 2008

So…let’s talk perfume. I LOVE perfume. All different kinds…I love it all! What’s important to remember about perfume is that while you do want to smell good…you don’t want to smell overwhelming. My uncle would put so much on that you could smell him before you saw him! That’s not a good thing. I usually put a spritz behind both ears…on my neck, on my wrists, (if I’m wearing a shorter dress) in the bend of my knee, and on my clothes. Now I know there are people out there that will say not to put it on your clothes…but I have to tell you that I do it all the time. It really does help to keep the fragrance alive…everytime you move that smell is jumbled up and will release a new little puff I guess you could say. Anyway, I do it and I love it! Right now I’m wearing Deseo by J. Lo, Ed Hardy, and Fabulosity by the FABULOUS Kimora Lee Simmons! I tend to mix perfumes together. I find that it creates a unique scent and is often better than one product alone. Just don’t go overboard. My favorite and the kind I bring out for special occasions only is Clive Christian. His products range from $100-10,000 a bottle. No one can touch this fragrance…it’s the epitome of Fabulous! I have the 1872 product and LOVE it! I also like Envy Me by Gucci, Rose by Bulgari, Chance by Chanel, I could go on and on. I love it! A lot of people say you should have a signature scent…one that you wear all the time…can you say BORING!!! I can’t do that. I’ll wear a fragrance for 2-3 months and then I HAVE to change it up. Be unexpected! But above all…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Panty hose and open toed shoes! June 23, 2008

SO…Panty hose and open toed shoes…DO NOT GO TOGETHER!!!!  I don’t care if they are nude colored…DO NOT DO IT!!!  It looks ridiculous and anyone with any kind of fashion sense at all knows this and will…I promise…laugh at you.  The whole purpose of an open toed shoes is for people to see your legs and toes…it’s ok, you don’t have to cover them up.  The only time you need to wear panty hose is when you are wearing CLOSED toed shoes…and even then you don’t HAVE to wear them.  I prefer not to…even in winter, but I just don’t like panty hose…they are too constricting.  I prefer thigh highs, and you can get a great pair at Victoria’s Secret.  They also have great garters for keeping them up!!  Talk about sexy…I have a pair of hot pink garters…I LOVE THEM!!!  So that’s my fashion RULE for today…NO PANTY HOSE WHEN WEARING OPEN TOED SHOES!!!  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!
