Sexy or comfy? – What’s most important to you?

June 10, 2009

I had a wedding this past Friday night and all I knew was that I wanted to look sexy. I’ve been working out…feeling good…and wanted to show off all of my hard work. I found an incredibly sexy BCBGMaxazria dress in Loehmann’s for $90- it was exactly what I was looking for. Only problem was…I could barely breathe. It had boning in it which made it feel like a corset. Yes, it was sucking me in in all the right places, but how was I going to eat the franks in the blankets and drink wine if there wasn’t even room for air?

I battled for the rest of the week about what to do…tried it on for friends who LOVED it (yea, because they weren’t the ones who would have be constricted all night) and went shopping around town for something still sexy, but more practical. I ended up going with this blue Banana Republic dress…paired it with a pair of very high heels and delicate silver earrings and I felt great, plus I had plenty of room to eat, drink and dance all night.

What do you prefer? Looking sexy with a little discomfort or going for something that also looks great, but allows you to live a little? OR is it possible to have the best of both worlds?

Wardrobe must-have: The Cardigan (in every shape, size and color)

June 5, 2009

I noticed yesterday that half of my closet is filled with cardigans…how could I possibly have SO many? I mean, I guess I do wear one pretty much every day of the week, so it does makes sense. Whether it’s over a silk top or just a plain tank, a dress or a skirt, the cardigan is a very handy piece of clothing. They really go with just about anything…pair it with a long necklace and cute shoes and you are bound to look completely put together and stylish, every single day of the week. So many different kinds to choose from…here are some of my favorites…all for under $50!

Chelsea Handler- I love you, but where is your stylist?

June 3, 2009

I am addicted to the show Chelsea Lately, I think Chelsea Handler is hilarious and sooo dead on with everything she talks about. From her round table trashing celebrities to her little “nugget” Chuy, I die of laughter. The one thing that constantly distracts me from all of the madness on this show is her style (or lack there of). She is a beautiful woman, but she is in desperate need of some blush, lipstick and some stylish clothes that are more suitable to her body. I want to see Chelsea glowing on the screen again! I want to see her personality shine even more through her fashion! I think she has so much potential and just needs a little beauty and wardrobe help. Any takers?

What would you dress Chelsea in? I’m thinking something like this…
