Polka-Dot Power

 

 

 

They keep coming back!

 

I like polka-dots! They have stood the test of time and are back on the racks this Fall!

 

As a young girl, I remember a particular dress I chose for Easter. White ruffled skirt with black polka-dots and a black cap-sleeve button up top. I loved it! Sadly, I have not donned the dots in years.

 

The Dots out there now however, have certainly caught my eye!

There is one thing I love about gearing up for Fall. Jackets!

 

Living in California, I don’t need to shop for heavy jackets till Winter months. Nights are getting cooler and a light layer is nice…

 

While browsing the Armani Exchange , I found a few styles I simply love! These classy Jackets have an eye-catching appeal that you wouldn’t want to miss.

 

Peplum Jacket

 

This new jacket has a touch of  feminine flare while staying true to the clean lines.

 

 

 

 

Suede Trim Leather Jacket

 

This jacket just says “Sexy” all over it! The suede trim and modern neckline give this leather jacket an enticement all its own.

 

 

 

 

Croc Embossed Faux Leather Jacket

 

My Pick ~ This jacket has the endless style of the moto, in a soft elegant look.

 

 

 

 

Each of these jackets have beautiful, original style that looks HOT in the dark and light!  Great with jeans or skirt, grab your jacket and GO…!

 


Wedge Wear day AND night!

Sandals are the first choice in shoe fashion where I live in California. Wedges are EVERYWHERE!

I love mine and have several pairs to choose from. But… I always need more!

At a recent Wine and Chocolate Stroll in fashionable downtown Danville, women were out in their cute wedges for some guaranteed night fun.  I had on my preferred heels, but what I saw, I loved!

I normally choose my colorful wedges for day-wear, however I think I’ll pull out a pair the next time I’m out at night as well!

 

Here’s to finding the versatile wedge!

My Picks:

Chinese Laundry

Lucky Brand

Naughty Monkey at Zappos

Seychelles

and my absolute favorite

Cesare Paciotti

Of course I’d wear those Cesare Paciotti’s anywhere! But for the casual fun in my downtown, I’d have to choose Naughty Monkey for their flare.


Love It Nude? I Do

With the new Spring Trends  stocking every closet and drawer across the fashion globe, the shoe that spans the spectrum is “Nudes”.

Dressed for work or play, nude shoes can be worn with everything!

These Beauties add length to legs and since they go with everything, why not make them a staple in your shoe collection?!

Tip: The key to buying “nudes” is to make sure they go with your skin tone.

Toss Your Blues

Pastels are IN! From pinks to shades of yellows, Jeans have been given a tried and true bold wash. For the Trend-setter, these colors are a gold mine! The options are endless!

This time last year, I noticed few ladies braving the colorful denim. These colors are not new so I expect a greater population of bold legs will be showing off their fun fashion this year.

As most of us know, lighter colors add width, darker colors slim down. You know your body better than anyone, so choose your shade to your shape.

My Picks:

Citizens of Humanity

Joe’s Jeans

Maxi, Frumpy or Fabulous?

This past fall and winter, I have noticed some frumpy looks while out and about.
Putting a little thought into choosing a style of maxi skirt will be to your advantage!
So here are my 2 cents:
If you are petite, it’s a little tricky; however you can beautifully pull off a maxi skirt.
Select a style that is well-cut and fits snugly to your figure. A lot of fabric can make you look shorter and frumpy, which you should avoid at all cost!

Choose patterns and colors that elongate, like vertical lines and dark colors. White will not do.
Heels and wedges add height. Stay away from flat sandals.
What you wear on top can add to your look. For example, a longer jacket will add height and also can hide.
If you are of average height or tall, you can’t go wrong with a maxi. You can wear flowing styles or snug.
Flat sandals, wedges, anything goes.

A rule of thumb when looking at design: Horizontal patterns add width. Vertical patterns add height. Angular patterns detract from width and can add height.

I really like the hi-lo style of maxi. It’s versatile. Tall and petite can wear this look! Pair it with some cute wedges and you’re set!

With the right style for your shape, you can look fabulous in a Maxi!
