Fabulous Fashion Advice: I’m back! November 11, 2008
SO…I’m back! I guess you could say I took an extended holiday. It’s amazing how lazy I got after I got married…42 days and counting!!! I am finally getting my butt back to work. You know every year around this time I HAVE to watch You’ve Got Mail!! I HAVE to…it’s not Fall until I do. So I am sitting here typing to you and watching “You’ve Got Mail”. In the movie Tom Hanks girlfriend, played by the fabulous Parker Posey, is this hugh strung coffee addict who couldn’t slow down if she had to. He says “You make coffee nervous!”. Do you know people like that? I do. Did you know that I read on AOL that there is a study that says in some women there is a gene that when you drink coffee…it makes your boobs smaller. CAN YOU IMAGINE? Wow!!! I think I read it and got paranoid so I stopped drinking coffee….waited a few days…nope….boobs were the same size. Guess I don’t have the gene. I always remember sitting at the breakfast table with my grandparents and I’d ask for a cup of coffee and they would say…”No, it will stunt your growth.”…perhaps there is some truth to that. My question is…if it effects women’s boobs…what does it do to men? Just tossing that question out into the void. Ok…now that I got that out of my system. I am having a moment of obsession. I LOVE SWEATERS!!! I really do!! They comfort me. I am ALWAYS cold, my husband insists on keeping it a chilly 72 degrees in the house…in WINTER!!!! UGH! I would keep it on 80 all year long!! I freeze all the time! So I decided that I needed sweaters! Wouldn’t you know, I found some of THE best sweaters at this little store called Forever 21. PS…their new logo is XXI Forever. Anyway, they are incredible. I bought this 3/4 sleeve chunky brown sweater that ties in the front, and this plum/eggplant long sleeve sweater to wear under it. It’s awesome. Then I also found this navy blue sweater that has really big buttons and ties at the bottom. They are really comfortable but they look fabulous! THEN…I went to Target and found this GREAT black sweater with like a bronzy/gold zipper and it zips at an angle all the way up. It’s WAY fabulous! So if you are looking for sweaters check out Forever 21 and Target. Remember…BE FABULOUS!!!
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: Shoes! June 27, 2008
SO…Let’s talk shoes. Everyone knows women LOVE shoes. I have an addiction to anything that’s sky high, I’m talking Dolly Parton heels. I wouldn’t give $50 for a pair of Coach sneakers, but I have been known to spend well over $1200 for one pair of Fabulous Louis Vuitton swarovski crystal detailed evening sandals. Here’s how over the top I am, Saks Fifth Avenue, only one of the BEST high end department stores ever…second only to the one and only Bergdorf Goodman, they were having a huge sale on shoes. Generally speaking I can NEVER find anything on a sale rack. I’m just not a bargain shopper, without even knowing it my eye will go straight to the MOST expensive thing on the rack or shelf. Well this particular day I found the MOST AMAZING shoes ever created. The are Chanel champagne high heeled sandals with the biggest faux diamond you have ever seen on a shoe…it’s amazing. I wore them to an event that I had to perform in front of 20,000 people in a huge arena and I had people coming up to me asking me if I had a flashlight on my foot because of the light that had reflected from the diamond. They were 40% off…I got them for $900. Talk about a deal!!! They are so extreme and beyond fabulous. It wasn’t a month later and I saw Star Jones, former View co-host, with them on in black. That’s how you know you’ve got style. If you can buy an item and the next month or week or day you see it on a celebrity or in a magazine. This has happened to me on more than one occasion. I bought a brown wool 40’s inspired outfit at Ralph Lauren and the very next month it was a featured piece in Vogue. I was watching the Miss America pageant a couple of years ago and the next thing I knew out walked Miss California in a skirt I had JUST bought the week before. I could go on and on and on. Back on to shoes…I will spend a fortune on great shoes…I’m not talking payless (not that there is anything wrong with payless), I’m talking Chanel, Stuart Weitzman, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Betsey Johnson, who by the way has the HIGHEST heels on the market (without looking like a stripper). However, when it comes to casual shoes for everyday…$2 China Town slippers. I am so not kidding. They are lifesavers. They are so cheap you can buy 30 pairs at a time and throw them away when you’re done. Comfortable isn’t even in it, they are wonderful. If I’m not wearing heels you can bet I’ve got on my china town shoes. Whether you’re in Diamond encrusted Chanel heels or China Town slippers…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!
Fabulous Fashion Advice: Bras June 25, 2008
SO…I have the HARDEST time finding a great bra. I just do. I can’t go to target and buy those cute little ones with green polka dots and pink straps…trust me…I wish I could. But the fact is they just don’t make them in my size. Can you say Pam Anderson? Ok…not that bad…but still! So I usually do all of my undergarment/lingerie/whatever you want to call it shopping at Victoria’s Secret! I love that store. Now I do get frustrated with them sometimes because they make some of the MOST FABULOUS bras with sparkles and all this glamorous stuff on them….but they don’t make them in my size ARGGG!!! But I have found the BEST bra there. They just came out with it a couple of months ago and it is FABULOUS!!!! It’s the Angels collection and I think it’s called “Dream Angels with memory foam”…so think Temperpedic mattress in a bra!! I’m telling you it’s freakin awesome! I LOVE IT!!! They have two different styles. Style One is just the fabric with a little lace on the outside edges of the cup and the underarm straps are lace. Style Two has lace all over it. Which is really beautiful. I have the non-lace one in white and teal, and I have the lace one in black with nude underlay, hot pink, whisper pink and white. I can’t tell you how much I love them. You can actually buy the all over lace ones a size smaller and they will fit like a glove! You should go and buy one today and see how you like it. If you don’t like it send it to me…just buy it in a 34 D!!!! Seriously though…you really do need to invest in a good undergarment wardrobe. It will save your life in years to come…you don’t want boobs that you can throw over your shoulder when you’re 65!!! A great bra can help prevent that. So there’s my fabulous fashion advice for today…go buy a Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Memory Foam Bra today!!!!! REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!
