Party Rocking at Your Best

Women%20S%20Party%20Dresses

It’s happened to us all before. You have an important party or event to attend and you simply don’t feel like going because you don’t feel you look your best. This usually is an issue when you’re meeting with people that haven’t seen you in some time or meeting someone where landing a good first impression is crucial. The experience itself can make any one selfconcious but add a bad haircut, an extra five pounds, or a lack of a stylish ensemble, and you have a recipe for a party pooper.

But there’s no need to avoid the party all together. We’ve come up with some great tips to turn around any to-be sour party moments.

1. Draw attention to your best features.

While you may be completely focused on your “bad” haircut, make others notice your beautiful statement earrings or smoky eye make up. Pin up shorter layers to help those features steal the show.

2. Wear comfortable clothes that fit your shape.

Yes, ideally we would  have lost those extra five pounds by the party date, but unfortunately it’s not always possible. Instead of squeezing into a tight dress that might make others realize you’ve put on a little weight and make you feel self conscious all night, wear something that fits to the point where you feel comfortable and able to breathe. Usually comfort can turn in to confidence and confidence translates to beauty in others’ eyes.

3. Accesorize, accesorize, accesorize!

Didn’t have time to run to the store for this season’s latest trend? Don’t stress. Run to your closet and find a classic look for the event your attending (something that you can’t pinpoint to a certain year). Now think of accesories that will help make the ensemble look more modern. If you don’t currently own any, run to favorite jewelry store already dressed and ask for a store associate to help you find something that will “pop”. As we all know, it’s much easier and quicker to shop for accesories than it is for a new outfit and being already dressed will help you see the “whole” picture.

We hope this blog has you soon feeling like a million bucks. Put these suggestions in to play and you’ll be ready to party in no time!

Minty Fresh

Why is mint so hot for summer 2012? This frosty shade is a lovely mix between blue and green and gives off a light, airy vibe. Mint pairs well with many colors, but we especially love how it looks with yellow, pink and teal. Mix and match a mint-colored item with one of those shades for a gorgeous and spring-appropriate look.

 

 

Don’t think you can pull off a full on minty look? Try easing in to it with mint accesories and you’ll soon see the appeal of this seemingly unusual color trend. Have you tried this look as of yet? What kind of feedback did you get from your friends? Let us know below with a comment!

Color Woes

Have you ever looked in your closet and seen so much black overpowering your wardrobe and thought, “Ozzy Osborne would be proud.” ? This happens to great number of us I think, myself included. And it seems as much of a conscientious effort I make to purchase clothes of a different shade, I’m drawn to black or it’s nearest sibling, gray.

So a question many of us ask is: How can I make my wardrobe less gloomy?

First off, we need to quit justifying our gray-scale purchases saying things like “This is truly a wardrobe staple I can wear anytime of the year.” However true that may be, you must remember, you have said that the last several times you’ve gone shopping and one can only have so many black staples.

Second of all, dress for the season. If it’s spring you’ll feel much more fashion forward and alive wearing fresh vibrant colors and people will instantly view you as someone who is happier and ready for whatever the world throws at them. Even if it’s a baby step such as mixing a spring colored blouse with some black pants or throwing on a neon color blouse under that black blazer. Every little bit counts and makes a huge difference.

And last but not least, however flattering black may be, colors that truly bring out the best in your skin or eye color will draw attention AWAY from any problems areas you think you have and give you a truly polished look.

Think of these three things next time you are out shopping and write them on your hand or stick a post it with these reminders on to your credit card next time you are tempted to purchase something black, when your closet would honestly be better without it.
