  • What skirt best flatters your body type?

    Last year it was short shorts—but this summer skirts are the hottest leg-baring garment to rock.  A variety of styles and designs are in vogue  this season---and we’re highlighting the best one for YOUR body type.


      Give a mullet skirt a try.  These make your waist look tiny and flatter your hips.  Choose one in a sheer layered pastel, pair with a tank top and anchor the look with a substantial chunky leather high-heeled sandal. 


    Tall & Thin

     Opt for a tiered skirt in a bold stripe pattern.   This will create a more feminine, curvy shape by adding volume.  Top with a simple fitted tee.  Keep it casual with embellished flats. 


    Go for a neon bodycon skirt that accentuates your curves and smoothes out your thighs.  Add a loose-fitting, scoop neck top and neutral colored wedges. 


    Invest in a pencil skirt in a bold color.  This style is great because it skims over your thighs and hips, yet makes a big statement. On top, chose a TK

  • What's the outfit to own at every age?

    Great style transcends any age, but there are certain age appropriate staples that flatter a woman best when she’s in her 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.  Do you know what they are? We’ve created a must-have look that fits the age range that’s perfect for you. 

    In your 20’s

    An intricately detailed mini dress, leather motorcycle jacket and high heels is your winning combo. This is when you can experiment with your look and show off your boy the most. So invest in a special, unique, over-the-top mini dress under the leather jacket.  This type of jacket adds a hint of cool to your look without looking like you’re trying too hard. Test drive sky-high heels because before long, you’ll hate wearing them and you should do your best to wear them whenever you can now!

    In your 30’s

    Invest in a fitted sheath dress, mid-height bold-print heels and a blazer. The dress is super flattering, and when you’re in your 30's, it no longer is appropriate to wear shapeless, trendy

  • Beauty tweaks to get your skin silky smooth this summer

    It's finally nice and warm outside, but that means we have a new list of tweaks to make to our beauty routine. Hemlines get shorter, bikinis become a weekend staple, and all the skin we're baring inevitably takes a hit. So to ensure our bronzed skin will look radiant and feel silky smooth, we're arming you with the beauty tweaks to do just that.


    Cut back on salty snacks

     Skin gets parched in the summer months, and extra sodium consumption can exacerbate that. So swap those handfuls of pretzels with juicy fruits such as watermelon, cantaloupe, and mangoes. These fruits are full of carotenoids and can help protect skin from sunburn. (This doesn't mean you should forgo the sunblock!)


    Sip on coconut water

    We all know that staying hydrated is important year-round, but guzzling countless glasses of water can get boring. Spice it up this summer and sip on coconut water. It's a great alternative to the usual glass of water and helps keep

  • Celeb-inspired Prom Dresses

    Shopping for the ideal statement-making prom dress-- one that looks fierce, feels comfortable (enough), photographs well, and won’t reveal everything while you’re getting out of your stretch limo-- can make you feel overwhelmed and probably not unlike a celebrity prepping for a red carpet moment.
