Oh no JLO, NO!!!! Why did you have to go there? The curvy fashionista has commited a big NO NO… in my eyes at least. Here she was snapped in an airport in Tokyo Japan, sporting the new fad in fashion, the Harem pants. This style was, to my dismay, all over runways at New York Fashion Week. Continue reading

Shoe Trend Alert

For the past week or so I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect pair of shoes. I wanted an open toe bootie to welcome in the warmer weather that has been approaching. I was looking for something specific, nothing too high, comfortable, something I can dress up for a night out on the town, or dress down with a pair of jeans. As I was window shopping online I fell in love with Madden Girl Platform Booties on the DSW website. I love the slouchy front, the thicker heal and the platform front.maddenbootie

After going to all the DSWs (the store didn’t carry this shoe), Marshalls and TJ Max in my area looking for something similar, I didn’t really find anything that suited me. DSW has some great shoes on sale though, I found a pair of Michael Kors heels that were marked down 70%! Although they were so fierce, it was still not what I was looking for.

In the end I decided to just order directly from the DSW website the Madden pair that initially caught my eye.

But, while on this mission for the perfect shoe I noticed Continue reading

SUPER-SIZE SHOULDERS

Shoulder Padsshoulder pads

Call it a comeback, shoulder pads are back! If you like it or not the shoulder pad attack is coming in full force this year. They are being stuck everywhere from evening dresses to power suits. The shoulder pads made famous in the 80s have been spotted everywhere in Fashion week. The look isn’t as scary as one might think and can be a good style solution for the pear-shaped figure if paired with a dark, slim lower half.

We Gonna Party Like It’s Your Birthday

One of my best friend’s and lush360 counterparts birthday is coming up! What does this mean? An excuse to go out and party like it’s 1999! For those of us who have little ones at home and going out is a rare occasion, can really understand my excitement! So while the event is still about 2 weeks away, the online window shopping and the “what are you going to wear” discussions begin. You all know what I’m talking about ladies!

Killer Lashes for Less!!

At my wedding this past October, I wanted my make up to look perfect! I played around with the idea of getting false eyelashes applied professionally, but I was worried about them falling off during the ceremony in an embarassing moment. The morning of the big day, I talked to the make up artist and she assured me the lashes would stay on all day, so I moved forward with getting them applied.

It was a great decision on my part! The lashes looked flawless and I was amazed at the difference it made to the appearance of my eyes. I actually became slightly obsessesed..LOL. I washed my face SO carefully the next day so my lashes would remain intact and THEY DID! I didn’t even wear make up the entire next day, but the lashes gave the illusion that I was wearing make up. Here is a pic of me in August with just eyeshadow, mascara and my natural lashes . The picture on the right is from October with NO make up (but more tan) and false lashes.

When my false lashes finally came off after 5 days, I already couldn’t wait to the next time I could get them applied. I got the lashes applied for $30 at Mario Tricoci Salon for my wedding, and I realized I could not afford to get them done weekly or even once a month. I decided to do some research on my own. I was shopping at Target and Continue reading

Tip of the Day – Greasy Hair is a No No

Washing your hair everyday is not good for your locks. Hair professionals have been advising us to skip shampooing probably since shampoo was invented! It dries them out and not to mention that your natural oils are good for your hair.

More and more people are just going to the salon once-a-week for a shampoo and make it last all week long! (and it’s not just the old ladies).

Check out this article in the NY Times:
“Today, as textured locks and full hair begin to eclipse the ironed and Japanese-straightened styles that were previously in vogue, weekly visits to salons are more common among women who were born since the Eisenhower administration. Women say it cuts down on bathroom time by eliminating daily blow-drying and is an excuse for more pampering when everything else has been polished and waxed.

“There’s this whole new breed of young fashionable girls who are getting that once-a-week shampoo and blow dry and just milking it,” said Johnny Lavoy, the owner of Moda-Rey Salon and Spa in West Hartford, Conn. They grew up, he said, “thinking you have to wash your hair every time you shower, but they’re realizing that natural oils are good for the hair.””

A. I’m super excited that full and Continue reading

Color Me Mellow Yellow

The official “It” color of Spring this year is yellow, from a greenish-yellow to banana yellow. While there are plenty of tops and dresses in this sunflower hue, the easiest way to wear bright yellow is to pick it up in bracelets, belts, bags or other accessories.

One is Better Then Two for Spring 2009

If you are in the market for a dress for a wedding or a special occasion, consider getting your self a one-shoulder dress and show off those sexy shoulders and back! The one-shoulder dress trend has been on the rise. The asymmetric neckline is striking and bold and is coming back. Yes I said coming back as in it’s been here before… the trend is not a new one to fashion, it has been around for thousands of years, back when Greek goddesses were draped in togas. Now a days we have a lot more to choose from then just the toga look.

Here are some of my favorite celebrity one-shoulder looks for inspiration:
