Casual outfit under $50

Yes, more white. Wear them now because time is limited. Tick tick tick!!! You can make your look pop with bright color sandals or bag. The white top featured would also be great as a fill in piece, worn with a skirt or pants of your choice. Great with a long chain also. It is just a great buy.
Go super comfy by trying this look.
This complete look is under $70. Like the outfit in the under $50 look, this look is from zara.com and the bracelets are from wetseal.com

No Blues Here!!

Hey Fabs, how was your week? I hope good. On Tuesday I enjoyed some pool time with friends and yesterday I was on the move to find some new looks, plus I really needed to pull some pieces for a new client. Omg! The Summer sales are off the charts!!!! If you are over Summer shopping just take a hundred bucks and buy some fill-ins. You will thank me later!
First, I want to share with you this natural face scrub and mask. I tired it and I loved it. 
All natural 

After work affair!!
My single Fabs, you never get an off day to find love. Remember, Summer is the time to find some one to hibernate with in the Winter. So,no sitting around this Friday night.  Here is a look that will take you from work to play.
FYI: This is not the blues look.

For work, pair blue pencil skirt with blue shirt finishing with blue print shoes. Your black everyday work bag will work with this look. This is colorful and chic! Perfect for work and a nice dinner date after work. Now if, after work calls for drinks with the girls, transition your work wear into this fab number. Just by changing your shirt and bag.
Simple yet, super fun and most importantly it does not look like you got dress at work. Pop on your pink lip gloss and you are ready to go.

Weekend ready!
The weekend weather looks perfect, are your outfits ready? I was thinking metallics. Try wearing your metallics this weekend. You can pair them with whites or you can pair them with brights.

Send me pics of your metallic looks.

Thinking On My Feet Tuesday!

Hey Fabs, I was so stumped on what to talk about today! I have been so focused on my Fall wardrobe. Can not wait to launch the new Fall looks for you to try. It may seem early, however, you too need to start planning for the cooler days ahead. If you live in a warmer climate, keep in mind that you can transition your look for Fall by changing your colors. Just opt for darker colors. Stay tuned for ideas in the Fall blogs.

Summer in the Fall
Fabs, try wearing your button down denim shirt with denim cut offs. Make it pop with wedges or a cool clutch. This look is super cool without looking over done. Plus it allows you to look like Summer and warm enough for the cooler evenings.

Thinking On My Feet
On Friday night I went to grab pizza and ice cream with my family. Can you say fat Friday?! Anyway, I pulled out a dress I haven't worn in a year nearly to realize that it was a little too short for my family night out, so do I put something else on? NOT! Instead I paired it with my faded short shorts and coral wedges.
It was the perfect look!

Check out theses great transition wedges I just found. They would look great with ripped jeans rolled up or wear them with a long flowy skirt.
Did I mention that they are super comfy and one is a hundred dollars more than the other (email me and I will tell you where to find them).
Also, I am planning on launching a monthly plus size blog. It will be in addition to my current twice weekly blog. I'm doing my research so I hope you like it. 

Our next date is Thursday

Calling All Fabs!!!!!

Summer prints, brights and whites, Oh My!! Last call on shopping for your Summer wardrobe. August is here, now we have to start thinking of the Fall wardrobe. Oh My!!

Wear your prints and have fun with it. Instead of matching a print shirt with matching bottom. Why not try a totally different bright color bottom? Finishing the look with nude sandals. Sounds fab, Oh My!!!!
Last call on Summer brights!
If you were afraid before, the Summer is ending, buy a top in a color you would never try (make sure it compliments your skin tone) and, pair it with a white bottom or color block. Finishing the look with metallic sandals!! Why not? The Summer is almost gone. Oh my!

I need more time with my whites, Oh My! So I must wear them with all my prints and brights. There is no wrong way to wear your whites, as long as it is in your size!!! 
Shopping advice!!.
Fabs, the Fall is closing in, start thinking and looking for what you need to be ready for the....dare I say it? Oh My!!! No!!!  Now, if you live in warm weather all year, please take advantage of all the Summer sales. If you are short on time, order on line.

If I could, I would!!!!!

Hey Fabs, how was your weekend? I hope great. The weather certainly was. In last Tuesday's blog "shopping guide" I talked about shopping for replacements for our fav pieces. Well, today, I must confess that I have a pair of gold sandals that "if I could, I would wear them all year long". I am looking for a replacement however, until then, lets discuss how to wear them all the time.
For dinner with my family yesterday. I forgo the heels and went with my fav flats metallic gold sandals, metallic gold skirt, tank and fav chain. I was comfy and very chic!
Now there are days when these sandals are all my feet want, so I have to work an outfit around them. Let's be honest, when your husband or boyfriend  notices you are wearing the same sandals a lot, it is time to rest or hide them!

Here is a solution Fabs!!
Try wearing them under pants or maxi dresses, you get best of both worlds. Looking  good, while very comfy, plus the bonus is you get to hide them. How often do we get that ladies? Not very! If you are on the taller side try the palazzo pants look with a tank. Super cute!
FYI... If, your favs are rubber sandals, it will certainly not work!! You will not be able to look dressed up in rubber sandals, just does not WORK!!!!
Steals under $20

The top right gold chain and metallic bracelets are from forever21.com and  the two necklaces on the bottom are from aliexpress.com. I just had to share those great deals.  Have a great week Fabs, our next date is Thursday.

Up! Up! & Away!!!!

So I'm headed away for a three night get away and I'm only allowed to bring a carry on! That's going to be hard. So lets discuss what I will packing.

All I need is three to four cute swim wears and cover ups. 

My cover ups I'm packing I plan to double as day dresses. Yup I'm going for the glamour day look.
Plus I'm packing my fab hat. It  doubles as extra protection form the sun. Unfortunately I am only able to bring one hat so, (lack of space) lets improvise. I will take my fab head scarves. They will double as extra protection for my hair. 
Now that the day is done. Lets discuss 
My plan is to wear white two out of the three nights. Exciting!!! I'm always excited to wear white, so much I can do with all white. The other night I will wear my short suit, from reading reviews about this one restaurant on the water, everyone recommends a sweater.  This look will be perfect and chic!
My Fabs, always remember to dress for the occasion. If in doubt, do some research, it is always great to be prepared. 
There is no better time to try a new look than on vacation. Or, even a new way of doing your hair. It's vacation, why not?

Sale guide!!!

So there are sales everywhere, this is the best time to find great pieces at affordable prices. My Fabs we are all guilty of buying because the item is on sale, however, I have the perfect plan to help you with a very common problem.
5 basic rules!!!
1. Go into your closet (actually go, don't think, go in) and see what you need.
2. Pull out all the pieces that needs something else in order for you to wear it, and take a pic you will need this while you shop.
3.Check out all your sandals, the ones you wear a lot, lets find something similar. The ones you hardly wear lets make a note why.
4. Find that item you wear a lot, put it in the back of the closet and lets find a temporary replacement (at least for the rest of this summer) 
5. Now make a wish list.

Rack up on tanks, white and blacks are great transition pieces they can take you into the fall. You can wear them under jackets, sweaters or cardigans. Plus if you are a jet setter to warmer climates in the winter, what's better than a new tank or two that you brought at the end of the summer? (the stores will only be stacked with sweaters) If you are a jeans and t-shirt girl, do not change,embrace it.
Have you tried rolling up your jeans? My Fabs, wearing a pop color belt can give an old jeans new life.  Just try doing something new, with the same old pieces. As long as you stay true to yourself, you will feel like your most fashionable self. Whats better than that?
Metallic and color flats are always in style!  
So if you see them, buy them! White tends to stain or even lose it's brightness, so keep and eye out for replacements. Follow my guide and you will fill your closet not just with new pieces but pieces that you will actually wear. Remember you do not have to buy everything this week there is always next week. I want to thank you all for continuing to read, I will be in Soho this week. See you there!

Are you prepared?

Have you ever ran out your house looking a "hot mess" and bumped into someone you haven't seen in years or bumped into someone you may be interested in? We all have!!!! Now lets fix that! Are you ready? Well you should at least be ready for an unplanned night out. Why? because you have the " back up plan" ready and waiting for that call. The question is, are you prepared during the daytime? Let's talk Fabs! You should always 
have a dress or romper on hand, it is quick and easy.
Plus it is a full outfit without worries of coordinating. A romper or maxi is the answer for moms on the go. Please check out my  "my blast from the past blog" for ideas on how to update an old maxi.
It is so easy to get caught off guard Fabs, however, being prepared by having an organized closet makes a difference.
In a rush remember a pony tail goes a long way especially with a pop of color on your lips. For those long nights Preparation H, reduces unwanted bags (Just dab some under eyes). Or, pop on your splurge sunglasses. Perfect!!
For weekend parties try white on white with a pop of color. It has been super hot so you may want to scale back on the accessories. Try the pop of color on your feet. Our days of wearing white are numbered, so pull them out and enjoy them. 
My dating Fabs, keep an overnight bag in your car, because who wants to look like last night, at 12 noon the next day? Not you!! 

Weekend challenge
Challenge for the weekend is plan your outfits for Monday to Wednesday, and try them on! Have you ever came up with a look in your head and when you put the look on, it is a total disaster? This only seem to happen when you have little time.  So just try it on, you will  thank me for all the time you saved.

Great Accessory finds under $20
Send me an email and I will tell you were to find them!!! Have a Great weekend.

My fashion love letter

Hi Fabs!
     Can you believe we are half way into the summer? Sad to say but, we are. My weekend was filled with family, errands  and shopping. Yes, more shopping! I found great tanks for unbelievable prices. I am trying to take advantage of all the fab sales. Oh, I also did a Zumba dance party for 4 hrs, it was amazing.
     I am all about trying on my clothes before I buy them, but I must confess, that was before I gave birth to my best accessory ever, my daughter. Now I am enjoying online shopping. It is so necessary and, when in doubt I buy two (Please check the company's return policy). It is nice trying on clothes in my own closet.
Must have looks
 Mix prints 
 Mixing bright colors
 Tribal prints
     I brought two amazing print skirts this past week. One by Peter Pilotto that I plan to pair with my white v-neck tank body suit and black sandals.
     I plan to wear this look to an upcoming  fall preview show I was just invited to. Why this look, because it is bright enough for the summer but, the print color is still perfect for fall.  I plan to put a lot of mileage on the body suit. I can  pair it with a blazer or cardigan. I really enjoy bringing my summer pieces into the fall. Frankly, it helps to fill in before cold weather wear comes into play.
     Mixing colors is fun! This look is great for girls nights out, a concert, or lounge look. It is fun and fresh.
Let me explain. Better yet, take a look! 

Super fun for concerts and perfect eye catcher for drinks with the girls. 
     My Fabs you have to take a fashion chance once in a while and have no fear this will definitely be a hit!  If you are afraid just start small. My goal is to inspire you to try new looks so you can continue looking like the very best you!!! 

                               Best regards

Beauty secrets

What's your beauty secret? Really,what is it? My mom once told me that aging is the worst disease, so like many, I am doing all I can to slow it down.

Lets share some beauty secrets !!

Amanda's secret for maintaining beautiful skin is to always use moisturizer with retinal, expecially if you are over 30.(retinal helps to prevent wrinkles).
Jorja and Melissa's secrets for always looking sunkissed is wearing bronzer. Melissa also enjoys wearing Jergens body glow for all over sunkissed look.
My secret for maintaining clear skin is my bi-weekly mask treatment by proactive.

Lets get weekend ready!!!
Now that we are sharing lets discuss under garments!!
In order for any outfit to look great it starts with your undergarments, please get fitted this weekend. A t-shirt does not look good if your boobies are sagging, your strap is showing or worst of all, your bra is just too SMALL!!! Your underwear should always remain under! If you are wearing something fitted, please wear seamless panties.

And, by popular demand!!!

The Little Black Dress, lets make it cool and fresh for the summer!!! Starting from the top, wear minimal makeup and put a pop of color on your lips. Great summer lip colors are pinks and corals. As for hair, opt for a high ponytail it is chic and cool. You can also try loose long curls. Put on that LBD pairing it with nude sandals and this look screams summer!!!

Now Lets Shop!!!
Try wearing high waisted stripe shorts, pairing it with a coral shirt and accessorizing with turquoise jewelry and black sandals. Summer fun !!!

Readers always remember that you can wear one item as many times as you like, just make it  look different each time. Check out the strip shorts looking totally different but still very fun.

As always, if you have down time this weekend please play dress up. Or, try any of the DIY projects. Thank you all for continuing to read. Have a fabulous weekend.

Blast from the past!!!!

How was your 4th? I hope it was as fab and relaxing as mine. The past weekend's heat was almost too much to bear, however, I had to stay on the move and venture out. I did some shopping and some remixing in my closet. Unlike my two year old muse, I do not get a new summer wardrobe.
My look for the past couple of days has been cool and comfy. Nothing like a chic easy look on a hot summer day.
Let the fun begin
Go grab an old dress, or knee length denim skirt and lets make it 2013 fab!
The key way to pull something from the past to current is add a splash. Can you say accessories!!! 
 Lets try putting a splash on your oldie and turn it into this summers goodies.

Simple old dress, now lets showcase your beautiful accessories.
Yellow dress 
You can  choose to go for color with the multi color chain. ( the multi color chain dose not have to match your dress) With this many colors  pair the look with neutral flat sandals.  
If you choose the earrings, that is all you will need. Pull your hair back, very little makeup, coral lip color and bronzer for that sun kissed look. Metallic gold clutch and sandals to finish the look. This look can take you into an early dinner date. 

Knee length denim skirts!
They are back! Did you save yours? I did!!!!
OK, so my skirt looks more like the one on the left. It was a little boring for me, so I gave it the cut & bleach effect
Cut & bleach effect 
Put your skirt on and decide where you want to make each cut. Cut one area at a time and try  it on before the next cut. Once the cuts are done, brush on bleach in the areas you made the cuts. Quick wash and dry. Tada!!! 

Now that your skirt is ready pair it with a white tank, "show stopper necklace" and flat gold sandals.Super cute look! 
Like I mentioned earlier, most of us do not get a new summer wardrobe every year. So lets make the best of what we already own. Accessories are essential in updating any look. Always keep and eye out for the next great piece. This will enable  you to turn the past into your current blast!!! 

What I learned this weekend!!!!
A lot!
First  " you do not need to take off all your clothes to keep cool in the heat" 
If you are over 25yrs , do not wear a short skirt or shorts with  a crop top. If you are showing your bottom half off  be mindful of how much you show on top. It's just distracting!!! It leaves the eye confused!!!! Choose your target area and make that pop!

Remember to choose sheer waterproof makeup with SPF for the summer.
Sorry for not posting yesterday, for this week only I will post Wednesday and Friday.
As always thank you for reading.

Remix Tuesday !!!

Hey friends, how was your weekend? Did you pick up anything new? Or, did you play dress up? Either way I hope you had a fab weekend!
I'm listening to all your request so here we go.
By Popular demand!!!
Let's discuss how to make three trendy outfits, from one item in your closet.
One black skirt, three outfits lets GO!!

Day look
Match a black skirt with casual long white graphic tank top, wearing the tank loosely over your skirt. Furnishing the look with neon flats, messenger bag and hoop earrings...Super cool day look.
If you do not have fun neon flats lets make a cool neon tank so you can wear those black flats in your closet. Are you ready? No worries you will not need a needle.
White long tank
Neon fabric paint (three different colors)
Three different size round containers
Foil paper 
A dark color towel 
Now lets have fun, start with prepping. First pour the colors on your foil paper so that you can easily dip each containers. Place the towel inside the shirt so that your paint does not leak to the backside of your tank. Choosing your first color, dip the rim of your largest container in the paint and place on the center of your shirt. Follow with a different color paint and the next size container, place it inside the center of your first circle. Then the last circle. Hang the shirt up immediately after the last circle,we want the dripping effect. We are not looking for perfect circles we are looking for cool and edgy. 
Now that you have created your own edgy tank you can now pair it with your black skirt and black sandals. Follow with the above accessories. 

Evening look
Lets pair our black skirt with a white button down sleeveless shirt. Button your shirt all the way to the top and tuck it in the waist of the skirt. Accessorizing with a collar chain, black and white sandals and throw a fun color summer sweater over your button down. (Yes summer sweater, super light weight and fun) Enjoy the look. 

Night look
Now lets pair you black skirt with either a black and white tube OR a plain black tube belting with a cool vintage black belt fun sexy black strappy sandals and fun clutch. Put a pop of pink or coral on your lips and you are ready for a night out on the town. Smoking!!!!!
It is all about been able try something new with an old item. The best feeling is when someone compliments you on something old that you have brighten up to look shinny and new. Enjoy trying to get that spark back.  As always thank you for reading.

Putting my best first!!!

I'm putting my best first, so I'm starting with thanking my readers. Thank you for continuing to read and inspire me.

Let the body talk begin!
What's your best asset? 
If you love your cleavage then show them. However, do remember if you are more than a C cup you need to stay away from the low cut V neck shirts (less is best). 
Is it your tiny waist you love? You should wear belts and purchase dresses that tappers at the waist, this will accentuate your fab asset. On the flip side if you do not have a tiny waist belting your waist is the perfect way to give the illusion that you have a smaller waist.

You must try it, this effect works with every body size. You can also choose to use the belt as your statement piece of accessory for example the green belt over the blue dress, how fab is that?

I love my legs so every chance I get I show them. Skirts, shorts, dresses sign me up. You can also show your legs by wearing pants and jeans. If the fit is great, you will get the same effect.

Swim suit season!!

They say summer bodies are made in the winter. I get it, however most of us are too busy. So lets make our beach wear fun while accentuating our best assets. 
If you are not good at picking out swimwear please bring a friend. You know the friend, the one that tells you like it is.
Beach beauties lets go!
Stripes, polka dots, prints, neon's, lets try them all.
For smaller cup sizes 
Wear prints or stripes in your tops with matching bottoms or funk it up by adding a neon bottom or try mixing prints, tie it all together with a plain cover up. If you are short on cover ups grab a light weight button down in either your closet or husbands closet roll up the sleeves. Accessorizing with a fedora .

For larger cup sizes
I know you are over always wearing a one piece. You can definitely follow the same plan as the smaller cup size, if you are trying the stripe effect, buy tops with horizontal lines. It gives the illusion of a lift, drawing the eyes upward. Always make sure your top fits and you are not a sneeze away from a nip slip. 
Another great trick is to purchase a matching fitted sheer top and wear it over your bikini top. This will help with the over exposure. 
Have you tried a high waisted swim bottom? This look is very chic and sexy. Great for pool parties plus a high waisted bottom draws attention away from your belly and accentuates you waist.
Just please have fun with your swimwear and mixing and matching not only helps with increasing you options but it looks great and it is beach fashion NOW!

Beach tip!!!!
Try putting sunblock in your hair it helps with excessive lighten of your hair. Wear lip balm with SPF .

Whites and Brights

So my favorite summer color is yellow, however, I have a really close runner up, white!!! More importantly,wearing white allows my creative juices to flow. It's my blank canvas...

So let the painting begin!!!
You should own at least two white tanks or t-shirts in the summer. Rack up on more than one, especially if they fit great and are inexpensive . This could be your "go to plan" when you need to put a look together quickly .

Going casual,  grab a white top and put it with a bottom of your choice and accessorize with a cool chain OR, try a scarf.  Quick and perfect!!!

Funky Look!!!
Try stacking chains together, try three different length gold or silver chains. This will put life into a simple t-shirt.

Now lets discuss color!!!!!

Lets start with Yellow!!
Try pairing a yellow skirt with a turquoise shirt or vice versa. Accessorizing with a nude sandal and simple gold chain and gold cuff or watch. Super chic! Try it! 
Remember if your outfit is screaming HOT tone down the accessories.  

Now Red...
In the spirit of 4th of July I'm releasing the color Red...
Try wearing a red summer dress with a pair of yellow sandals. Accessorize with gold jewelry.
Can you hear it???...Can you hear the word FASHIONISTA??!! I can!! Try the look and you will hear it too. 

Must have!!!
Try finding a summer clutch with great colors.

What I learned this weekend...Alot!!!
Woman are still buying clothing based on size instead of fit!!! Are you aware that sizes of clothing are different with each brand?  My lovely afternoon was ruined because, I saw someone wearing a shirt two sizes, too small!! The worst part is, I don't think she was aware...Ladies PLEASE check the mirror before you leave the house, and if you think it's too tight most likely it is. Just because it fit last summer, that does not mean it does this summer!!!  Ok, now that I got that out. Enjoy the beautiful weather!!!
