Fabulous Fashion Advice: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show December 15, 2008

So I watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show the other night.  It was awesome!!!  The imagination and creativity behind the show is unreal!  Usher was awesome!!  I loved the interaction between him and the models.  Heidi Klum is always awesome…she has such a friendly spirit.  I think she would be a great friend.  You can watch some of the show HERE.  The REAL news is that Victoria’s Secret is having a HUGE sale.  Buy one bra get one 1/2 off!!  That’s HUGE considering that their bras usually run around 58 bucks!  So I’m hoping to get down there and snag a couple.  I know I’ve said this before but their new Dream Angels demi bra with memory foam is INCREDIBLE!!!  I LOVE those bras!!!  They fit SO well and now they have new colors…I want the RED one!  HOT!  So go to your local VS store…because the sale is only IN STORES.  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Holiday Party Fashions December 9, 2008

So I was watching this local tv channel news bit about holiday do’s and don’ts as far as fashion goes…do you know what they said…they said “Don’t wear lots of makeup.”  UGH…don’t wear lots of makeup!!  Are you kidding me???  That is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard!  This is winter…this is Christmas…this is time for GREAT makeup!  Now it doesn’t mean you have to cake it on like Tammy Faye Baker, God rest her poor soul, BUT…you definitely want to look good this holiday season!  Put some paint on that barn and shine!  I got so frustrated when I head that igit say that.  Now there are going to be women going to fabulous holiday parties looking like they should just be at home watching tv.  I mean put a little effort forth and make yourself look like the fabulous person I know you are!  I will never for the life of me understand why people think that to be really beautiful you are supposed to wear very little makeup?!  I mean come on!…look at the Victoria’s Secret models…do you REALLY think that they aren’t wearing any makeup?…NO it took hours of putting on makeup to make them look like they are “naturally” beautiful.  So here’s some REAL fabulous advice on what to do about the holiday season…wear FABULOUS makeup…don’t put on SO much that you look like Tammy Faye but make an effort to look extra fabulous.  Add a little sparkle..maybe a shimmer eyeshadow or something.  MAC cosmetics has a great guide on their website…check it out HERE.  Also, wear something festive…it doesn’t have to be red or green.  Try a deep eggplant, copper or dark brown.  Here are a few examples…PS…keep in mind what the weather is in your area.  If you are going to be in freezing cold temps…don’t wear something strapless…or AT LEAST if you do wear a great cardigan over it.  Check these out…Black and Gold number from Cache`, I LOVE this one, this is really cute…I have it in hot pink!, this is GREAT!! from Forever 21 I may have to have it!, pair this with this VERY CUTE!.  That should give you a good idea or at least a good starting point.  So my fashion advice to you this Holiday Season would be to #1 Be Fabulous, #2 put a good coat of paint on the barn and #3 dress to the nines!  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!!!


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: Jeans! June 17, 2008

So…I told you on my last post that we would talk about jeans.  Here we go!  I used to have a TERRIBLE time finding jeans that would fit well.  My problem is that I have a J. Lo butt (which is NOT a bad thing) and a Scarlett O’Hara waist (little bitty waist).  Can I tell you how hard it is to buy jeans for someone with that figure?!  I can’t wear all those cute little jeans at Hollister, American Eagle or the Buckle…all those places that you walk in and about fall into a coma because of the smell!!  Ugh!!  That’s a whole other subject!  Anyway, so for years I would buy the hottest jeans I could find at Gap, yes Gap.  They were the only jeans that would fit me well enough to look half way decent with heels and not let my “junk” fall completely out of my “trunk”.  Then a light from Heaven came on and I was given a miracle.  Seven For All Mankind jeans!!!!!!!  I cannot begin to tell you how FABULOUS they are!  They fit like a glove.  You’re going to pay around $180-190 (unless you have an Off 5th…the Saks Fifth Ave outlet store in your area)  but it is SO worth it.  Jeans are definitely something you need to invest in.  When you put Sevens on, you know instantly that you are wearing a luxury item.  The feel of the denim is so soft you’ll think you are wearing silk.  They are beyond comfortable even when you first put them on.  They will stretch but not enough to where they are falling off.  I hate it when people wear jeans that when they sit down you can see their butt crack…gross.  What’s even worse than that is these little girls that think wearing a thong and letting it show is cute…ugh!!  I like thongs…but they aren’t something that the whole world needs to know you are wearing.  Jeans should fit tight in the butt (but not to where it is uncomfortable) and they shouldn’t gap at your waist, like in your lower back area.  The jeans should fit close there, you shouldn’t be able to sit and see your tail, if you can, find a different pair or try a different size.  This may sound terrible but I don’t care…I usually wear my jeans 2 days in a row.  By the second day they have stretched out just enough to make your butt look fantastic.  So if I know I have a hot date the next night, I’ll wear the jeans I want to wear then the day before so they will be perfect for when I go out.  Btw…I never wear belts with my jeans.  I know they can be cute and wonderful but I don’t like them…they are just not comfortable to me.  and NEVER tuck your shirt in…period.  Unless your stomach is as flat as Victoria’s Secret supermodel Gisele…don’t tuck it in!  So…if you need some FABULOUS new jeans go to Saks Fifth Avenue or ANYWHERE that sells SEVEN FOR ALL MANKIND!!!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!
