I picked these babies up (in the neutral color) a few weeks ago, and they're surprisingly comfortable for something so high. Best of all, I get a ton of compliments every time I wear them. People literally stop me on the street to ask about them.
I'm seven months pregnant and my baby shower is coming up in a few weeks. I work from home so I haven't spent a lot of time and money on a maternity wardrobe. I mostly wear yoga pants and tank tops around the house, and I have a few pairs of jeans for when I need to leave the house. I want to look nice for the shower since I'll be the center of attention but I also want to stay comfortable because I live in Texas and it's SO HOT down here. Also, I'd prefer to wear low heels, wedges or flats. Thanks.
This dress is lightweight so you'll be comfy, and it's perfect for a daytime event - festive but not too dressy.
I was browsing the web the other day and came across these photos of the legendary painter Frida Kahlo. And I was struck by her style - her bright, colorful, bohemian fashion sense would translate very well to 2012.
If you'd like to channel Frida, here are some gorgeous pieces to help you get started.
I love anything that has an initial on it, so I'm crazy about this ring (even though, in general, I hate wearing rings). I bought it for myself a while back, and not only is it adorable, it's flat and comfy - doesn't snag on anything!
I have a job interview next week, but it's so hot out that I don't know what I should wear. I have a trusty interview suit, but I can't bear to put it on when the forecast says that it'll be almost 100 degrees out. The position I'm interviewing for is with a radio station, so I don't think I have to look too conservative, but I still want to look professional. What can I wear that won't make me sweat to death?
You're right that you won't have to look too conservative at a radio station, but you should still look polished. Here's a lightweight top/skirt combo that I think will be perfectly professional, but not too warm.
I'm not a fan of flip-flops. I have one pair that I use when I get a pedicure or go to the beach, but in general, I'd rather wear anything else on my feet. Here are some stylish sandals that you can wear, instead of flip-flops, to the pool or while you're out running errands.
It was only a year or two ago that I started experimenting with bright lipsticks, but now I can't get enough! I tend to go for the higher-end lipsticks (especially NARS) but decided to try this bright CoverGirl lipstick when I saw it in the drugstore. I love the color Eternal, it's bright - brighter than it looks in the photo - and the staying power is impressive!
I bought these leopard shorts from Forever 21, but they're a little bit out of my comfort zone so I don't know what to wear with them. I'm going to an outdoor concert in a few weeks. Do you think these would be appropriate? What should I wear them with?
These are actually perfect for an outdoor concert. Here's how I'd recommend you wear them.
I bought this dress to wear to a wedding, but then decided not to wear it after my friends convinced me that it was too short and tight to wear (it was a Catholic wedding). So I wore something else, but I loved this dress so much that I didn't want to return it. Now, I have this dress and have never worn it because it's too revealing for everyday life, and my nights out are usually spent at casual places, not clubs. In the winter, I could wear it with tights, ankle boots, and a cardigan, but I'm trying to figure out how I can wear it now, to a casual bar, without looking overdone.
Good call on not wearing that to a wedding, but I think it could be cute for a casual night out with a lightweight shirt tied over it (unbutton the top buttons), and simple flat sandals. Check it out...
My husband and I are having a July 4th barbecue at our brand-new house. It's going to be pretty casual but I'd like to look nice, since I'm the hostess and it's the first time that many of our friends and family members are going to see the new place. It's going to start in the afternoon and go into the evening. What can I wear that's barbecue-appropriate but cute?
I went kind of literal on this one, what with the stars and stripes, the red and blue. But it's subtle, and fun. Congrats on the house!
Okay, at $88, this isn't a steal, but it's not too bad - and a nameplate necklace with a Twitter handle would make such an incredible gift for your favorite blogger or social media maven, wouldn't it? The rose gold is my favorite!
