Muse

Last night I got to go see one of my favorite people, my hairstylist (and good friend) Julia! She used me as a hair model for a demo at her salon during a event they were having last night. I got to pretend I had big hair with the new type of extensions called the Halo. There was entirely too much wine involved. Julia has been doing my hair for years now and I don’t let anyone else lay a finger on my pretty little head. Hopefully we’ll get the ball rolling on a collaboration between us soon. In the mean time check out the salon she’s at, Muse and like them on Facebook!

Sometimes all you need is at least one person to hold your hand, especially in those shoes.

Can we just talk about Helena Bonham Carter’s spread in British Vogue? Absolutely flawless.

Thursday’s

Last night was another fun filled girl’s night with a birthday party thrown in. Lots of champagne and shenanigans. I was feeling very 70’s hippie chic yesterday with my Brandy Melville silky rayon pants in the aztec print. I paired a Nastygal crop top, nude wedges and a Rebecca Minkoff bag to complete the look. They’re beyond comfy and breathable and can be styled casual or dressed up. I highly recommend grabbing yourself a pair of pants like these for summer.

Rectangle Trends

I did a post on dressing for your body if you’re triangle shaped about two weeks ago and now I’ve moved onto rectangle shaped! Typically a rectangle shaped body means your shoulders are as wide as your hips. You’re waist has little definition; you have a smaller bust with long legs and a flat bottom. This body type is typically more common in aging women or if you have recently gained weight. But do not worry! I am here to help you dress your best if you find yourself in this category!

Rectangle Trends

 

What should you wear on top?

– Use strong blocks of color to help define your body

– Wear tops and jackets that emphasize the waist

– Any jacket tailored around the waist will look great

– You can use some shoulder padding

– Medium to high necklines usually work well

– Blouses can look really good if they are tucked in

What should you wear on bottom?

– a line skirts work really well for this shape

– You can also go the other way and wear a tight skirt or pants to highlight the curves that you DO have

– You can wear almost any shape trousers but slightly flared trousers will look great on you as it will add more shape to your body

– A knee length pencil skirt that tapers in at the side will also add some curves and look good

– If you like the waist less look you can opt for straight skirts and shirt dresses

What colors look good on this body shape?

– Bright colors

– Prints and patterns

What accessories work well?

– Avoid waist length bags because they draw attention to your straight frame.

– Statement jewelry such as a chunky necklace or a pair of trendy earrings helps drawing the eye to your upper body.

– Print and bright colored scarves are also your best

Summer Round Up

Summer Round Up

Just a quick round up to put you in the mood for this summer’s trends! Lots of bold prints, lace, crop tops, flowy skirts and cut outs! I can’t wait to find myself a pair of short overalls to pair with a crop top, oversized sunnies and a great platform sandal. My maxi dress obsession has also carried over into long flowy skirts. Brandy Melville has a ton of fun skirts to choose from and they’re not expensive at all. I also got myself a new pair of cream high top converse that I’ve been wearing nonstop whether it’s with jean shorts or even a cute sun dress. Summer is all about being comfy so why not look cute too?

Music Monday

Found myself listening to Fiona Apple’s Tidal album today. I forgot how much of a girl crush I have on Fiona circa the late 90’s.
